Coronavirus: Scottish chief medic ‘will no longer front’ COVID-19 briefings after breaching lockdown
Dr Calderwood admitted there were “not legitimate reasons” for her to visit her holiday home in Fife
“As well as this weekend, it’s important to be clear, that I also was there last weekend with my husband. I did not follow the advice I am giving to others,” she said at the Scottish government’s daily press briefing on Sunday.
“I’m truly sorry for that.”
Dr Calderwood said there were “reasons” for her to have left her house in Edinburgh to go to second home, but that they were “not legitimate reasons”.
“When we do, we must be candid about it and learn from. That is what I know the Chief Medical Officer is doing, in making abundantly clear that she was wrong,” the first minister said.
When asked by Sky News’ diplomatic editor Dominic Waghorn if she was aware about the Chief Medical Officer’s weekend trips, Ms Sturgeon said she was not.
