The figures were released as part of the Scottish Government’s daily Covid-19 update on Saturday afternoon.
The 24 deaths represent people who tested positive within the last 28 days.
That means 10,431 people have died, under that measurement, since the start of the pandemic in 2020 and another 2500 have had Covid-19 mentioned on their death certificate.
There are currently 990 people in hospital with recently confirmed Covid-19 – of these, 27 are in intensive care.
The new cases include those identified using either a first lateral flow device (LFD) or polymerase chain reaction (PCR) positive test.
The figures show that across Scotland, 4,419,733 people have received the first dose of the Covid vaccination, 4,134,606 have received their second dose, and 3,314,502 have received a third dose or booster.
Since the start of the outbreak, 29% of Covid-registered deaths related to those in care homes, 64% were in hospitals and seven per cent were at home or non-institutional settings, according to Scottish Government figures released on January 30.
