The latest figures detailing the number of people diagnosed with Covid-19 in the last 24 hours in Scotland have been announced by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon who appeared at the daily media briefing along with Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Dr Nicola Steedman.
Yesterday was an important day in the story of the pandemic, with 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 daily record of 63,178. The First Minister said this is nothing short of heroic given the bad weather conditions yesterday.
There is a new statistic of those people who have been in ICU for 28 days or more. Today that figure is 28 patients, although it was 30 yesterday. The First Minister also announced that the R number which will be confirmed to parliament later is under 1.
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.
Many areas of Edinburgh now show that the virus has been suppressed there, as denoted by the white areas below but the advice from Public Health Scotland remains the same for now. Stay at home. See the full guidance below.
