Scottish Hospitals Inquiry: Child’s death after infection in hospital was ‘murder’, …

Scotland has recorded 31 coronavirus-related deaths in the past 24 hours, figures show.
Since the start of the pandemic in March 2020, 10,066,584 PCR tests have been carried out in Scotland.
Checks, which are a more accurate way to detect Covid-19 than lateral flow tests, are done when a person is showing symptoms or has been identified as close contact of a confirmed case.

Health Secretary Humza Yousaf said, “Reaching 10 million tests is a milestone and a recognition of the hard work and dedication of our testing teams across the country. “
