Covid Scotland: Highest number of daily cases recorded today since September

Scotland has recorded 6,734 new coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours – the highest number of cases recorded in one day since September.

The latest Scottish Government data shows no new deaths have been recorded since the day before, but officials said registry offices are generally closed at weekends which can affect the number recorded.

It means the Covid-19 death toll in Scotland under the daily measure – of people who first tested positive for the virus within the previous 28 days – remains 9,781.

The test positivity rate stood at 15.2 per cent in Monday’s figures, up from 13.9 per cent on Sunday.
