Vaughan Gething said ( about Aneurin Bevan ) : "Within Wales, the number of critical care beds is normally around 153. As at 3 April, there were 353 critical care or invasively ventilated beds. This number is increasing on a daily basis. Currently occupancy is around 48% with just over half the beds occupied with patients with confirmed COVID-19. There is significant variation in occupancy rates across Wales. Everything possible is being done to provide support to hospitals that are under the most pressure such as those in the Aneurin Bevan health board area. " External link
