Coronavirus has claimed the lives of another three people in Scotland, with confirmed cases of the virus reaching 15,156.

It takes the death toll among confirmed Covid-19 patients to 2273 but the total including suspected deaths is just over 3700.

In total, 1269 people are in hospital with confirmed or suspected Covid-19.

Out of those, 40 people are in intensive care, the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said, cautioning that the death toll was often low on a Monday due to reduced weekend reporting.

On Thursday the Scottish Government hope to begin easing the lockdown, having published its four-phase plan to gradually bring back some normality to people’s lives in Scotland.

Coronavirus restrictions are reviewed every three weeks, and any changes will be closely monitored – meaning if the rate of the virus’ transmission increases, measures could be reimposed.
