A total of 27 new coronavirus-linked deaths have been recorded in Scotland, according to the latest Government figures.
The data shows a total of 6116 people tested positive for the virus in the last 48 hours.
The Scottish Government said Saturday’s case numbers may be higher than normal due to a backlog of data being processed following technical issues at Public Health Scotland on Thursday.
The latest figures mean the daily positivity rate currently stands at 9.0%.
The death toll under the daily measure – of people who first tested positive for the virus within the previous 28 days – is now 8,376.
A total of 99 people were in intensive care on Friday with recently confirmed Covid-19, up 12 from the day before, and 1052 Covid patients were in hospital overall, 15 more than the previous day.
So far, 4,151,735 people have received their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccination and 3,802,183 have received their second dose.
