There have been 413 new cases of Covid recorded across Scotland in the last 24 hours.

The latest Scottish Government statistics also revealed that there have been no Covid-related deaths registered over the same time period.

Numbers have been affected by a data issue which meant Friday’s figures were lower than they should have been.

In total, 27,866 new tests reported results, with 1.6% of these positive.

The 413 new cases are almost 200 more than Friday’s figures when 215 cases were recorded.

However, this is due to a data issue affecting the flow of UK Government tests from 8pm on May 13 until 9am on May 14.

The numbers reported on Friday were lower than expected with missing data being included in today’s figures.

There have been no new Covid deaths since May 7.
