Cases of coronavirus have rapidly increased over the last several weeks, breaking daily recorded case highs that were not seen in the first wave of the pandemic - though that is of course largely though lack of testing earlier in the year.
The rise in cases has also resulted in a rise in deaths, but some areas of Wales have been affected more severely than others.
New figures released by the Office for National Statistics show Rhondda Cynon Taf has recorded the most amount of deaths of people where coronavirus was mentioned on the death certificate than any other local authority in Wales.
As well as seeing the most amount of registered deaths related to the virus, they have also seen the fastest growth in these death numbers.
Looking at figures for registered deaths over the four weeks, leading up until October 9, Rhondda Cynon Taf has seen deaths more than double each week.

Local authorities where there have been no Covid-19 related registered deaths are not included in this chart.
No other local authority has seen an increase in deaths quite like RCT, which is largely related to an outbreak in coronavirus at one of the borough's hospitals, Royal Glamorgan Hospital.
As of October 19, there have been 43 Covid-19 linked deaths at the hospital since an outbreak was declared at the end of September.
There have also been six Covid-19 related deaths in the Prince Charles Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil and eight deaths related to Covid-19 at the Princess of Wales Hospital in Bridgend.
These deaths have also been reflected in the ONS figures, with Merthyr Tydfil seeing an increase in registered deaths where Covid-19 was mentioned on the certificate during week 41 (ending October 9).
Bridgend saw an increase of two deaths in week 40 and another 1 death in week 41.
As these figures from the ONS only show registered deaths, there is a delay in the recording of people who died with coronavirus as it can take up to several days for a death to be registered.
This means more deaths may have occurred in this time frame than recorded.

Out of that number, 438 registered deaths mentioned "novel coronavirus", making up 4.4% of all deaths in England and Wales. This is an increase of 117 deaths compared to the week before.
