The number of people in hospital with Covid-19 has hit another record high.
According to official statistics, there were 2383 in hospital with a recently confirmed case of the virus as of Monday, March 28.
A total of 20 people were in intensive care, whilst there were 39 more deaths recorded.
Scottish Government figures also indicate that 9311 new cases of coronavirus have been reported.
Just over 4.3 million people have received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccination, whilst just over 4 million have had their second dose, and around 3.4 million have had their third or booster dose.
Last week, professor Linda Bauld said that coronavirus infections will continue to rise and fall every three or four months.
Reflecting on the response to the pandemic and the pausing of activity across the NHS, she said: “Any crisis forces people to change direction.”
She warned: “I think we will continue to see cycles of infection in the community, every three or four months.
“You have a crisis and it sits on top of all the other crises.”
