Coronavirus: More than 1200 patients in Scottish hospitals

No deaths, but 951 new cases of Covid-19 recorded over the past 24 hours.

There are 1225 people currently being treated for coronavirus in Scotland’s hospitals.

Of them, 93 are in intensive care, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said at her daily briefing.

She said no deaths had been recorded in the past 24 hours, but stressed that was down to fewer registrations taking place at weekends.

However, a total of 951 new cases of Covid-19 have been recorded in that period.

A new alert system designed to control coronavirus came into effect on Monday, placing every Scottish council under a level of restrictions.

The First Minister told the Scottish Government’s coronavirus briefing 66,012 people have now tested positive in Scotland, up from 65,061 the previous day.

The daily test positivity rate is 9.6%, up from 7% on Sunday.

Of the new cases, 385 are in Greater Glasgow and Clyde, 268 in Lanarkshire, 76 in Ayrshire and Arran and 69 in Lothian.
