The number of people who tested positive for Covid-19 in Monmouthshire on December 30 was 355 (which is up substantially from 153 yesterday), which brings the total number of cases in Monmouthshire up to 14,240. This includes either lab-reported or rapid lateral flow tests.

There were 189,213 (up from 183,037 yesterday) people who tested positive for Covid-19 in the UK on the same day, which brings the total number of UK cases up to 12,748,050.

Covid-19 cases are identified by taking specimens from people and testing them for the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. If the test is positive - except for rapid lateral flow tests which have negative confirmatory lab-based PCR tests taken within 72 hours - this is referred to as a case. If a person has more than one positive test, they are only counted as one case for all nations with the exception of Wales.
