The latest figures detailing the number of people diagnosed with Covid-19 in the last 24 hours in Scotland have been announced.
The statistics in Scotland as at 2 February 2021 are shown below and the number of people vaccinated up to 8.30am on Tuesday was 34,881 the highest number yet. But if the government is to achieve their own target this number needs to be nearer 60,000 each day.
The First Minister Nicola Sturgeon addressed parliament this afternoon, but has advised that the current Stay at Home guidance will remain in place until the end of February, subject to a couple of exceptions.
She said that the most recent figures show that the lockdown is working. Average daily case numbers have halved in recent weeks as you can see below.
