Delay in publishing our daily dashboard

Published: 16 December 2020

“Today, 16 December 2020, there will be a delay in publishing our daily dashboard.

“As we announced on Friday 11 December planned maintenance of the NHS Welsh Laboratory Information Management System (WLIMS) was undertaken to allow for essential service upgrades to take place.

“This is affecting our daily reporting of Coronavirus figures.

“There is a delay, in incorporating data from the Lighthouse Laboratories. This means that we expect a backlog of results to come through over the coming days, and there will be a period of data reconciliation and validation that will affect our daily reporting figures for several days.

“This has not affected individuals receiving their results, and anyone who tests positive will be contacted by their local authority’s Test, Trace, Protect team in the usual way.

“Relevant stakeholders are in receipt of interim data.

“The Public Health Wales public-facing data dashboard is a rapid reporting tool which is subject to correction and reconciliation. Official statistics are provided by the Office of National Statistics”
