There have been 14 new coronavirus cases across the north and north-east in the last 24 hours.

Latest figures from the Scottish Government show a total of eight people in Grampian have been diagnosed with Covid in the past day – down two from yesterday.

Of those eight cases, five were in Aberdeenshire and two were in Aberdeen City.

There has been only one positive case recorded in Moray for a second consecutive day.

It comes after First Minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed that restrictions in the region will be eased from midnight, bringing it in line with most of the mainland, which is currently in Level 2.

The north-east’s total now stands at 15,368 positive cases since the beginning of the pandemic.

There has been a slight increase in new cases recorded in the Highlands with a further six people testing positive for Covid in the last 24 hours.

However, there are currently no patients being treated with the virus in NHS Highland hospitals and no further deaths.

No new cases have been recorded in any of the island health boards.

Totals in the Western Isles, Shetland and Orkney remain on 297, 236 and 74 respectively.

No new deaths in Scotland

Across Scotland, no new deaths of people with Covid were reported in the past 24 hours, making today the seventh consecutive day without any virus deaths in the country.

A further 411 people in Scotland have tested positive for Covid in the past day.

This is 1.9% of the overall 23,508 coronavirus tests that have been carried out since yesterday.

There are currently 81 people in Scottish hospitals with the virus, of which four are being treated in intensive care.
