The Chief Executive of NHS Wales Dr Andrew Goodall will be giving the latest Welsh Government coronavirus briefing amid “encouraging signs” in Wales.
He will be speaking from Cathays Park at 12.15pm on Wednesday (February 10).
Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme on Wednesday, Dr Goodall said: “Our community prevalence rates are down, they are down very significantly from where we were in December.
“We see the positivity rates and the reproduction values are well down within Wales now.
“Just over the last two or three weeks or so the number of patients in hospitals for coronavirus has actually reduced by about a quarter.”
But he warned there were still more than 2,000 patients in hospitals for Covid-19 treatment, which may “take some time to reduce to what we would say would be even close to normal levels”.
It comes as latest Public Health Wales figures show that the  Wales  infection rate is now  114.3  per 100,000 population for the seven days up to February 4, a decrease from 116.4 the day before.
It has not been this low since early October. However the infection rate is no longer falling as fast as it was for most of January. Cases for your area here.
The latest data also shows 628,760 people have now received a first dose of the coronavirus vaccine as of 10pm on Monday, up 24,784 on the figure published 24 hours earlier. Some 3,491 people have now received both of their vaccine jabs.
