Covid in Scotland: Over 6,000 new cases and 2 deaths overnight


SCOTLAND has recorded more than 6,000 cases of Covid-19 and a further two deaths in the past 24 hours, latest figures show.

According to the latest Scottish Government figures, 6,185 cases of Covid-19 have been recorded in the past 24 hours.

A further two deaths were reported of someone who has tested positive for the virus over the past 28 days.

The total death toll according to the measure used by the Scottish Government therefore stands at 10,311.

However, the daily statistics noted that Register Offices are now generally closed at weekends meaning that it may not be true reflection of the total number of cases or deaths recorded overnight.

Test data now includes cases identified using either a first LFD (Lateral Flow Device) or PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction).

A total of 32 people remain in intensive care with recently confirmed Covid-19, down from 35 yesterday, and a total of 1,217 people were in hospital yesterday, down from 1,291 on Friday.

The total number of first vaccinations given stands at 4,410,990 while 4,124,546 people have now received a second dose, and 3,290,965 have received a third dose or booster vaccine.
