The latest figures detailing the number of people diagnosed with Covid-19 in the last 24 hours in Scotland have been announced by the Health Secretary Jeane Freeman MSP.
This week is important in the story of the pandemic, with over 1 million people who have now received their first dose of the vaccine.
The statistics in Scotland as at 11 February 2021 are shown below and the number of people vaccinated since yesterday is another ‘remarkable’ number according to the Health Secretary of 64,881. There is a possibility that the number of appointments may reduce in the coming weeks owing to a reduction in the availability of vaccine but Ms Freeman is sure that vaccination targets will be met.
Pupils may be returning to school in about 10 days on a phased basis, but all of that is dependent on the numbers staying low. It is important that the test positivity rate is reduced below 5.0% as this is where the World Health Organisation want it to be to so that the virus can be designated as suppressed.
As at 7 February 2021, 8,726 deaths have been registered in Scotland where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate according to statistics reported by National Records of Scotland.
