As the demand increases for statistics and data to measure the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to change our data gathering and release practices, focussing efforts on priority analysis and statistics. https://gov.wales/statistics-and-research

General description

Number of PCR antigen tests and positive results by critical worker or resident category.

Frequency of publication

Weekly

Data reference periods

16 March 2020 onwards

Statistical quality

The total number of tests completed may differ to other tables published elsewhere due to different reporting times. For the purposes of this analysis, a week is classed as 00:00 Monday to 23:59 Sunday.

The number of tests recorded for critical workers is dependent on the critical worker category being recorded at the time of sample.

It is currently not possible to distinguish between key worker and residents for samples processed in non-NHS Wales laboratories and so these have been included together in this table.

The data includes tests processed in NHS Wales laboratories and non-NHS Wales laboratories (lighthouse labs) and therefore does not include antigen lateral flow tests.

The care home portal was restructured as the organisational portal on Friday 28 August to include a wide variety of organisations – not just care homes. Previously Public Health Wales used this location category to identify tests for care home workers and residents, however, this is not possible since the restructure to the organisation portal. From 28 August the requesting clinician field has been used to identify care home tests through the UK Organisation Portal, this is dependent on the correct codes being used, otherwise these tests with be included in the key worker or resident: other or unknown category.

Between the weeks commencing 14 September 2020 and 12 October 2020, following changes in the source data provided by non-NHS Wales Laboratories, there were issues with allocating testing data to different pathways. This has now been resolved and a permanent solution is in place which is reflected in the data from the week commencing 19 October 2020. The interim solution used by Public Health Wales during this period was robust, therefore the data is comparable.
