It is based on information published by the Scottish Government and collated by civic hacking project Code the City. It was commissioned by The Ferret to make historical data on the virus more accessible.

You can find information below on deaths from coronavirus in Scotland, the number of confirmed cases in Scotland, and the total number of tests undertaken.


It also shows the historical trend in confirmed coronavirus cases for each health board area of Scotland.

Whilst we have made every effort to keep accurate records, the Scottish Government does not currently publish historical coronavirus information in an open data format.

This means that there may occasionally be a lag, or small discrepancies, between the data presented in this dashboard and the daily data available on the Scottish Government website.

You can use the date picker in the dashboard to select and compare data between different periods of time.

If anyone is concerned they may have coronavirus, advice is available on the NHS Inform website.

Our fact checkers are also debunking coronavirus myths that our readers have spotted circulating in Scotland.
