In this article, I am going to be talking about the pandemic situation in Scotland. There were 1735 new cases of COVID-19. There were actually no deaths reported in Scotland. 511 patients were in the hospital. That was actually a fall in the number of hospital admissions when it comes to Covid patients. There have actually been 329,387 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Scotland and, almost 8000 people have actually died, following a positive test for the COVID-19 virus, according to the Scottish government. This page actually analyses the key figures of the coronavirus outbreak in Scotland.
The Scottish government has published some headline statistics on the cases and also the deaths following vaccinations over the weekend. There have been more than 15,484 cases detected over the last seven days and also 1735 cases confirmed just on Sunday. The following information actually shows the confirmed cases after the NHS test.
There have been a surge in cases and it has gone above 4000, in Scotland. The cases had actually dropped in the month of April and me, but there was a surge again. The actual number of people infected during this course of the outbreak will actually be a lot higher than the number of confirmed cases. That is because a lot of people are vaccinated, and a lot of people may have contracted the virus without even knowing that they have the virus because they are not showing symptoms.
The number of positive cases in Scotland has actually increased. The rate is actually calculated by adding up all of the cases on the previous seven days and then dividing the population of the local authority. The number is then multiplied into 100,000. The Scottish government also publishes a lot of figures on the number of cases across 14 health boards in Scotland.
The world health organisation publishes figures on the infection rates for regions across Europe. For Scotland, the WHO divides the country into areas.
The world health organisation has highlighted the percentage of positive test results as something that is like a key indicator when it comes to assessing the status of the outbreak within a single country. The guidance says that the weekly positivity rate is kept below 2% and is something that is an indication that community transmission of COVID-19 is in low levels. Other indicators also include the number of cases of people admitted into hospitals.
The Scottish government also measures the positivity rate by dividing the number of positive tests per day by the total number of tests that are carried out. Covid vaccination programme has been very successful since 8 December.
