ANOTHER six people have died in Scotland after being diagnosed with Covid-19, it has been confirmed.

It brings the total number of deaths under that measurement to 2415.

The latest Scottish Government figures show that 21 more cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in the past 24 hours, raising the total to 15,603.

However, officials warn this will be an underestimate because not everyone with the virus will display symptoms and not all those with symptoms will be tested.

Of the people who have tested positive, 3795 inpatients have been discharged from hospital since March 5.

Here is a breakdown of the statistics by health board.

The National:
