More than 5,100 new coronavirus cases have been recorded by the Scottish Government in the past 24 hours.

According to the latest figures, 5,118 new cases of Covid-19 have been logged since Sunday.

No new deaths have been reported of someone who tested positive for the virus over the past 28 days. However, these figures tend to be low on Monday as registry offices are closed at the weekend. 

The death toll therefore now stands at 10,512 since the beginning of the pandemic.
