The number of cases of Covid-19 in Scotland were announced by Public Health Scotland today and are reported below. Today the number of cases in Lothian is the highest it has been since January.

The First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, explained in an address to parliament on Tuesday afternoon that there will be no immediate changes to the Covid levels of protection which currently apply to different parts of Scotland. Ms Sturgeon said: “It is exactly six months since the first Covid vaccine was administered in Scotland and progress since then has been remarkable.

“As of 7.30 this morning, 3,403,866 people in Scotland have received their first dose of the vaccine.

“That is an increase of 17,545 since yesterday, and means that almost exactly three quarters of the adult population in Scotland has now received a first dose of vaccine.

“In addition, 30,944 people received their second dose yesterday, which brings the total number of second doses to 2,282,203 – that means more than half of the adult population is now fully vaccinated with two doses.

“These are significant and really heartening milestones, and as ever, I want to thank everyone involved in delivering the programme.

Tuesday’s announcement means that Edinburgh remains in Level 2 for now in view of rising case numbers over recent weeks.

On Wednesday the National Records of Scotland announced that the number of people who have died where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate has risen to 10,122. During last week 24-30 May eight deaths were recorded where Covid-19 was mentioned and in total the number of deaths from all causes was 1,084.

Pete Whitehouse, Director of Statistical Services, said: “The latest figures show a slight increase in deaths where COVID-19 was mentioned on the death certificate, although numbers remain at very low levels. 

 “There were six COVID-19 related deaths in hospitals, none in care homes and two elsewhere.”
