Coronavirus cases in your area as new Moray infections skyrocket – fr


Public health officials have revealed the latest coronavirus data as the number of cases climbs in Moray.
The northeast local authority has seen infections increase in recent days, with the 7-day positive rate per 100,000 population reaching 95.0.

Earlier today, we reported that Grampian healthcare staff are now offering the Covid vaccine to people between the ages of 18 and 39 in response to the ‘out of control’ outbreak of the virus.

NHS Grampian has launched an Incident Management Team (IMT) to try to bring the virus back under control, and is urging people to get tested even if they don’t have symptoms.

This is in stark contrast to the picture across the country, with the same figure of 21.0 reported for all of Scotland.

A total of 1,146 cases were recorded in Scotland during the week of April 28 to May 4.

Three areas of local authorities reported no cases of coronavirus during those seven days. These include the Western Islands, Orkney Islands and Shetland Islands.

East Ayrshire, East Dunbartonshire, Falkirk and North Lanarkshire are behind Moray in the highest infection rates, according to data from Public Health Scotland.

Scotland is expected to step up to level two of the restrictions on May 17, as the total number of cases in the country remains well below the peak seen over the winter.

The move would allow the Scots to meet their friends and family at home for the first time in several months.

Hospitality would also be given the green light to reopen more, which would give much needed good news to movie theater and bingo hall owners.



Scotland are set to be downgraded from tier three restrictions to tier two later this month
