Covid-19: Over 2500 new cases recorded.

Scotland has recorded 2513 new cases and no coronavirus-related deaths in the past 24 hours, according to the latest data.

It means the death toll under this daily measure – of people who first tested positive for the virus within the previous 28 days – remains at 9,163.

Scottish Government officials warned the death figure may be unusually low due to there being no registry offices open on the weekend.

The recent figures showed the daily test positivity rate was 9.6%, the same as the previous day.

Saturday’s statistics may be affected by a data flow issue at the Glasgow Lighthouse laboratory, the Scottish Government said.
