Read the latest Wales stories, The mystery of the under-reported Covid-19 deaths and the 'e-form' on ITV News, videos, stories and all the latest Wales newsQuestions remain over what exactly led to the under-reporting of Covid-19 deaths by two Welsh health boards. Here's what we do, and don't know about what has happened. What we know: On April 23rd it was discovered that Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board hadn't reported 84 deaths from coronavirus. An investigation was launched. The First Minister vowed to put things right. On 28 April, another health board, this time Hywel Dda, was also found to have under-reported 31 deaths. Hywel Dda and Betsi Cadwaladr both issued statements saying that while deaths were registered appropriately, there were issues with how that data was shared. Both health boards say the issues have now been corrected. But what exactly has happened? The review by Welsh Government gives some clues. The focus of the review appears to be an 'e-form'. This is an electronic form that clinicians fill out when recording a death from coronavirus. This form, called the "Covid-19 mortality surveillance e-form Welsh Clinical Portal (the E-form)" was developed by Public Health Wales and the NHS Wales Informatics Service (NWIS). According to the review: "Currently the e-form has not being signed off or implemented across all Health Boards," and this "leads to a risk of divergence and inefficiency." All health boards now use the same system, we're told, but why wasn't there a consistent approach across the country? And that leads us to what we don't know, and where things get slightly confusing. With reference to Betsi Cadwaladr, the review states: "It remains unclear what may have triggered this gap in reporting specifically to PHW other than an administrative oversight." However, the assertion of "administrative oversight" appears to contradict the suggestion by NWIS boss, the Chief Clinical Information Officer Wales, Rhidian Hurle, who tweeted that "organisation Betsi Cadwaladr chose not to use an All Wales electronic system designed by Public Health Wales."
