Earlier this week, Ms Sturgeon urged Scots to act with caution and not be complacent as we consider this to be a ‘sharp increase’ in cases due to the Delta strain of the virus.

She added that the good news is that the vaccine offers a good level of protection, she said: “We are not seeing at this stage a proportional increase in the number of people hospitalized or becoming seriously ill with the virus, but it is important that we are not complacent.
She added that this is because there are still a significant number of people to be vaccinated.
Ms Sturgeon added: “If we want to keep the virus from getting ahead of the vaccine, it’s really important that we all be careful and careful. “

What will the Prime Minister say?


Nicola Sturgeon will update the country on the coronavirus pandemic today after the announcement that Scotland surpassed 4,000 new cases on Thursday – a record.
Ms Sturgeon is expected to indicate what the Scottish Government’s response will be to a dramatic increase in the number of cases, and whether plans to ease restrictions will remain in place or be delayed.
She will discuss the spread of the Delta variant and reiterate the message that everyone must remain cautious to avoid further hikes.
Earlier this week, she addressed the country and said there would be no delay in easing restrictions despite the increase in numbers because the vaccination program is working well, but that was after that Scotland recorded 3,285 daily cases, which was a record at the time.
Yesterday almost 1,000 more cases than that were reported.

What are the latest case numbers?

The record 4,234 brought the total number of cases to 285,456.
Six new deaths have been recorded, meaning the total death toll is now 7,722.
A total of 275 people were hospitalized with recently confirmed Covid-19 up 40, with 16 patients in intensive care, down from three
So far, 3,816,251 people have received the first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine and 2,722,725 have received their second dose.

When are the restrictions relaxed?

The country is expected to move to zero on July 19, Mr Sturgeon said last week, three weeks after the date originally set for June 28.
Despite the increase in cases observed at the start of the week, Ms. Sturgeon confirmed on Tuesday that this date was not going to be delayed.
While there are no concerns about the increase in hospitalizations or deaths, Scotland will go ‘beyond level zero’ on August 9.
It will be a return to “almost complete normalcy” and see almost all legal restrictions lifted.
However, some limitations may remain, including the legal obligation to physically distance yourself indoors and outdoors.

When is the announcement and how can I watch it?

The Premier will begin her update at 12:15 p.m. today, Friday, July 2, and will be joined by National Clinical Director Jason Leitch.
The announcement will be broadcast by the BBC and also broadcast on The Scotsman and the Scottish Government’s Twitter feed.
The Scotsman also broadcasts live updates on the website and through our dedicated live blog.
