Scotland’s coronavirus case count has risen to three.
Health Secretary Jeane Freeman said two new cases had been confirmed overnight.
Speaking to BBC Radio’s Good Morning Scotland, she said she was unable to release any more details about the new cases at this stage.
She said: “Overnight we were informed of two more cases. Obviously, at this point there isn’t any more I can say about that. We will release more information later.
Scotland’s first case emerged on Sunday, in a Tayside patient who had recently returned from Italy.
Asked if the new cases are also in Tayside or are elsewhere in Scotland, she said she was unable to say more.
“There are a number of steps that we need to go through with the patients concerned before we can release any level of information.
“Partly it’s about patient confidentiality, and partly it’s about making sure we get the right clinical responses to cases.”
She added that more information will be released “later in the day”.
