There have been 1167 new cases of Covid-19 reported in Scotland in the last 24 hours which equates to 17.6 per cent of newly tested individuals.

In the last 24 hours there have been 15 new reported deaths of people who have tested positive and 62 people were in intensive care.

NHS Greater Glasgow saw 435 cases, Lanarkshire 346, Lothian 114 and Ayrshire 103.

In NHS Grampian there were 38 cases and NHS Highland saw 11 cases.

For Aberdeenshire in the seven days to October 15 there have been 55 cases of Covid-19 recorded and Aberdeen City recorded 180 cases.

In the last 24 hours Scotland has added a further two walk in testing centres - the first of those opened yesterday in Dundee city centre today and the other opened in Sighthill in Edinburgh today.

These add to the seven walk-through centres already open – two in Glasgow, one already in Edinburgh, and one each in Aberdeen, St Andrews, West Dunbartonshire and Stirling.

A number of others are due to open in the coming weeks.

While many of these centres are within walking distance of student campuses and so are particularly useful for our student populations it is important to note that they are open to all members of the public and you can book a test by going onto the NHS Inform website.
