COVID-19: Possible coronavirus cluster identified in Scotland

A possible coronavirus cluster has been identified in Greater Glasgow and Clyde, Nicola Sturgeon has said.

Giving the daily coronavirus figures, the first minister said while no Covid-19 deaths have been recorded in the last 24 hours, there have been 22 new cases.

She said 14 of these cases are in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde NHS board area, with a “possible cluster” associated with a “particular location” under investigation by the health board.

An incident management team meeting will take place this afternoon, she said, giving an “assurance that all new positive cases are thoroughly investigated for any links” and contacts will be traced.

Ms Sturgeon also warned it is unlikely immediate changes will be made to lockdown restrictions this week.

The first minister will give an update on the route map out of lockdown to the Scottish Parliament tomorrow.

She said the Scottish Government is “very likely to adopt a very cautious approach”.
