General description

This data has been published to provide a weekly summary of data on contact tracing for coronavirus in Wales. Figures show the number of positive cases and close contacts eligible for follow-up by local contact tracing teams. The data represents the number of eligible cases introduced into the contact tracing system by day. The number of cases eligible may vary slightly from week to week due to cases being flagged as not eligible following further investigation by contact tracing teams.

Data collection and calculation

The majority of cases not eligible for follow-up by local contact tracers occur in closed settings such as hospitals, care homes and prisons. Positive cases and close contacts residing outside Wales are also not eligible for follow-up and are referred to the relevant public health agency for onward tracing.

The number of cases eligible may vary slightly from week to week due to cases being flagged as not eligible following further investigation by contact tracing teams. Variation between days reflects differences in demand on the system (for example, number of tests performed). Some days will see more cases feeding through to contact tracing teams, and depending on the demand, there may also be a backlog of cases from previous days.
