Scotland has recorded zero deaths and 3189 new cases of coronavirus in the last 24 hours.
As of Sunday, there were 356 people in hospital with the virus, with 41 people in intensive care.
Official statistics published by the Scottish Government also shows that just over 4m people have had their first dose of the Covid vaccine, whilst around 3.5m had received their second dose. T
The daily test positivity rate is 12.4%, up from 10.8% the previous day.
Meanwhile, Professor Linda Bauld has warned that schools could be forced to close again if there is a sharp rise in cases.
Bauld, from the University of Edinburgh, said she believes that current case increases are likely linked to the easing of restrictions on August 9.
“I’m concerned there will be pressure again to close schools, and everybody wants to completely avoid that,” she said.
“But if we do have really, really large numbers in schools, then I think that’s really tricky for the government.
“This is not a good situation, and to be going into September in this situation is concerning.
“The vaccines are still working, you can see that the cases are heavily concentrated in young people.
