Two more Covid deaths recorded in Scotland

Scotland has recorded two new coronavirus-related deaths and 6,185 new cases in the past 24 hours, according to the latest figures.

This brings the death toll of people who tested positive for the virus in the previous 28 days to 10,311, although weekend figures tend to be lower as registration centers are generally closed.

The number of new cases is 494 lower than the figure recorded on Saturday and 144 lower than last Sunday.

However, Sunday’s statistics, released by Public Health Scotland, include two days worth of statistics from the NHS Borders health board as it did not submit data on Saturday.

There were 1,291 people in hospital on Saturday evening with newly confirmed Covid-19, down 74 since Friday, including 32 in intensive care – a decrease of three.

From Monday, Scotland’s coronavirus guidelines are further relaxed, with employers being asked to consider hybrid working, with staff spending slightly more time in the office having previously been advised to work from home where possible.
