A FURTHER 92 coronavirus deaths have been registered in Scotland over the last 24 hours, the First Minister has confirmed.

Speaking at the Scottish Government daily briefing, Nicola Sturgeon said that overall 5888 people have now died within 28 days of testing positive for Covid-19 since the start of the pandemic.

These figures differ from the National Records of Scotland (NRS) data, which records all deaths where the virus is mentioned on the death certificate.

It comes after the UK passed the grim 100,000 Covid-19 deaths milestone.

A further 1330 coronavirus cases were recorded, the First Minister said, accounting for 6.2% of the total number of tests carried out.

As of 8.30am this morning, Sturgeon said, 462,092 people have received their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine in Scotland.

That means 56% of over-80s in the community, as well as 95% of care home residents, have now had their first dose.

There are 2016 people in hospital with the virus, up six on the day prior, including 145 people in intensive care – four fewer.

According to the NRS a total of 7902 people have died in Scotland with confirmed or suspected coronavirus.
