The latest figures detailing the number of people diagnosed with Covid-19 in the 24 hours to 19 April in Scotland are shown below.

There are no daily briefings unless there are major announcements in the coming weeks leading up to the election, but today there is a scheduled briefing which was broadcast on The Scottish Government Twitter Channel.

Last week, the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, announced certain relaxations of restrictions from 16 April and others from the end of April.

From next Monday 26 April further relaxations have now been announced, and the whole of mainland Scotland will be in Level Three. There is a table below prepared by The Scottish Government on what you can and cannot do when Level Three restrictions apply.

These include full reopening of retail and partial reopening of hospitality. On 17 May Scotland is expected to move into Level Two allowing people to meet indoors in small groups with a further move to Level 0 on 7 June.

The First Minister said: “We are very hopeful of seeing sustained progress in the weeks and months ahead.”

As at 11 April 2021, 10,031 deaths were registered in Scotland where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate according to weekly statistics reported by National Records of Scotland. These figures are updated each Wednesday.

The BBC has explained that from 24 March:

  • Live briefings will only be broadcast on BBC One in Scotland when it is expected that “major new information” will be shared – such as a formal review of restrictions
  • If a UK government briefing is broadcast live on BBC One in Scotland, there will be additional coverage so Scottish parties can respond
  • The BBC will consider the significance of the public health information which is expected to be discussed, and requirements on impartiality, when deciding whether to broadcast other government briefings. It is expected that these briefings would be shown on BBC Scotland or the BBC News Channel
  • If a live briefing is led by a Scottish government minister, members of the other main parties will be invited to contribute to the coverage

Special Ofcom rules for broadcasters around impartiality take effect in the lead up to elections in the UK.
