The number of cases of Covid-19 in Scotland were announced by Public Health Scotland today and are reported below.

More than three quarters of all those over the age of 40 have now received both doses of the vaccine.

The First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon convened a media briefing on Friday when she advised there will be new legislation introduced to parliament today to deal with the ongoing need for emergency powers. She also confirmed that from Monday 21 June there will be restrictions on travel from Scotland to Manchester and Salford where there are particularly high levels of Covid-19 cases.

Ms Sturgeon said: “From today, current restrictions on travel between Scotland and Bedford will be lifted. So non-essential travel to and from Bedford is permitted again.

“We have also now lifted restrictions on travel between Scotland and the Republic of Ireland. Again, that means that non-essential travel is no longer prohibited however anyone planning to travel to the Republic of Ireland should note that under Ireland’s current rules, you will be required to self-isolate when you arrive in there.

“I regret however that we are introducing restrictions on travel between Scotland and two cities in England.

“Manchester and Salford currently have high levels of Covid, and so from Monday onwards, non-essential travel is between Scotland and those cities is not permitted.

Non-essential travel is already prohibited between Scotland and Bolton, and Blackburn with Darwen.

“So anyone travelling elsewhere in the Greater Manchester or Lancashire area, I’d ask to think carefully about whether your journey is really necessary because we do see cases rising across the region.”

The Lothian figures mean that the Public Health Scotland map of the capital has almost all turned purple again. This was almost all white a few weeks ago indicating that the levels of the virus had dipped to almost nil. The shading of purple recognises that the number of cases has increased indicating that the 7 day positive rate per 100,000 population is in excess of 200. This should mean that the Level in the city is increased but the First Minister explained that this is not considered necessary owing to the level of vaccinations. But she said that it is unlikely that any part of Scotland will move down a level next week.

As at 13 June, 10,137 deaths have been registered in Scotland where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate, according to statistics published by National Records of Scotland (NRS) today.

In the week 07 – 13 June, seven deaths were registered that mentioned Covid-19 on the death certificate, a decrease of one death from the previous week.

There were two deaths in South Lanarkshire and one death in each of Aberdeen City, City of Edinburgh, East Dunbartonshire, Glasgow City, and North Ayrshire.

The number of deaths from all causes registered in Scotland in this week was 1,051, 8% more than the five year average for week 23.

93% of people dying with Covid had at least one pre-existing condition, the most common of which was dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease.

Over the period of the pandemic from March 2020 to May 2021, 186 males per 100,000 people died with Covid-19 mentioned on their death certificates, compared with 128 females. In May 2021, the rate for deaths involving Covid-19 fell to six deaths per 100,000 people.

By 31 May 2021 four people had died due to adverse effectives of the Covid-19 vaccine, out of a total of 3.27 million people who had been given at least one vaccine dose by this point.

Pete Whitehouse, Director of Statistical Services, said: “The latest figures show that last week there were seven deaths where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.

“After adjusting for age, people living in the most deprived areas were 2.4 times as likely to die with Covid as those in least deprived areas. The size of this gap has slowly widened from 2.1 to 2.4 over the course of the pandemic.”
