SCOTLAND has recorded 413 new cases of coronavirus in the daily figures, though the numbers have been affected by a data issue which meant Friday’s figures were lower than they should have been.

No new deaths were reported in the latest statistics from the Scottish Government while the test positivity rate stood at 1.6%.

A total of 3,003,339 people have received their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine and 1,599,519 have received their second dose.

An issue affecting the data flow from tests carried out on Thursday night meant missing tests from Friday’s numbers were added to the figure on Saturday.

With the exception of Glasgow and Moray, mainland Scotland is due to move from Level 2 to Level 3 restrictions on Monday.

The national vaccine programme is currently inoculating people aged between 40 and 49, more than half of whom have had their first dose.

Scotland is on course to offer all adults a first vaccine by the end of July, if supplies are maintained.

Commenting on the three million jab milestone, Chief Medical Officer Dr Gregor Smith said it is down to the “enormous efforts” of vaccination teams.

He said: “The vaccination programme is one of the main ways – along with restrictions and testing – that we are working to beat this virus and so it is crucial that everyone attends for their appointments when they are offered.

“It is great news that more than half of 40 to 49-year-olds have now come forward and had their vaccine.”
