Coronavirus: Scotland sees second daily jump in Covid-19 cases

 

Prof Bauld said Saturday's cases were spread around the country and not a cluster in a confined area, but despite that, the increases over the last two days were "slightly concerning".

Who cares twenty cases is neither here no there for something which in most cases is like the flu. 

noticed as the deaths drop they are not talking about cases it is all about control

20 positives from 16k tests xD it's an apocalypse we're all doomed. No idea how they can justify to the electorate crippling the economy for this

Prof Bauld told BBC Scotland that the rise in positive cases could be a factor of increased testing.

"Yesterday there were over 16,000 tests recorded,"

"Test & Protect is also working to break the chains of transmission. But we must all play our part by remembering FACTS." xD

The Scottish government public health campaign acronym stands for Face coverings in enclosed spaces; Avoid crowded places; Clean your hands and surfaces regularly; Two-metre social distancing and Self-isolate and book a test if you develop coronavirus symptoms.

A handy acronym. And don't forget to call the corona hotline if you have symptoms - 0118 999 881 999 119 7253

My understanding is that all of their new cases come from NHS employees doing Covid-19 contact tracing.

Is this the first evidence of viral transmission via telephone?

Can't fault the so called and National Records Scotland for sort of telling it like it is. Not sure if they meant it this way, but this overview of the rise and fall of SC2 in Scotland reads like a milder https://lockdownsceptics.org/ piece:

Scottish Government seeks to make many emergency coronavirus powers permanent

The Scottish Government wants its emergency coronavirus powers to become permanent – including the ability to order schools to close, impose lockdowns and operate virtual courts.

Ministers are considering changing the law to permanently allow them to release prisoners early or permit a wider range of healthcare professionals to give vaccinations. O.o

They are seeking the public’s views on removing the planned expiry date for many of the temporary measures, with Deputy First Minister John Swinney arguing that some of the changes have had a “demonstrable benefit to the people of Scotland”.

The majority of the government’s current powers introduced during the pandemic are due to elapse in March 2022 although they can be extended by six months with Holyrood’s backing.

But the consultation published by the government wants to make many permanently available, claiming it would ensure “ministers can respond effectively and rapidly to any future threats to public health in Scotland”.

It adds: “The proposal is, therefore, to give the Scottish ministers the same powers to protect the people of Scotland from any incidence or spread of infection or contamination which presents, or could present, significant harm to human health in Scotland, not just Covid.”

In addition to being able to impose future lockdowns and restrict gatherings, ministers would also be able to order school closures “during the remainder of the pandemic” or for any future outbreak of an infectious disease, so long as they believe it is “necessary and proportionate”, and the chief medical officer has been consulted.

Among the plans for the justice system are calls for continued powers to permit the early release of prisoners and allowing people to avoid attending court in person by taking part remotely.

The government argues it would be “prudent to extend the powers” established towards the start of the pandemic so ministers can choose “to order the release of groups of prisoners” to alleviate pressure on the prison system.

Towards the start of the pandemic, 348 prisoners were released up to 90 days early from their sentences, although inmates convicted of domestic violence, harassment or Covid-related offences were automatically excluded...
