Coronavirus Scotland: Announcement from Nicola Sturgeon confirms 1905 new cases



In Scotland, over 1900 individuals have tested positive for coronavirus in the last 24 hours.

The daily number was announced by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon in a speech to Parliament on Monday after MSPs were recalled to discuss tightening protective measures.

She reported that, since Sunday, a total of 1,905 people have tested positive.

A total of 13,810 new tests recorded results for Covid-19, of which 15 percent were positive.

Data on deaths, hospitalizations, and geographic breakdowns were not released due to delayed reporting over the holidays.

Nicola Sturgeon places Scotland back on lockdown to ‘stay at home’

Tomorrow, the latest daily data on deaths and hospital admissions will be released, which will include data for both that day and the previous four days.

The numbers come as Ms. Sturgeon suggests stricter steps to stop Covid-19 from spreading.

Following news of a rising number of Covid cases in recent days, Parliament was recalled following an emergency Cabinet meeting on Monday morning.

The easier-to-spread strain of coronavirus, which is thought to be up to 70 percent transmissible, causes about half of the new infections.

On Monday, Mrs. Sturgeon declared that Scotland had been placed back into a full national lockdown.
