A total of 377 people in the north and north-east have died after contracting Covid-19, new figures show.

Data collected by the National Records of Scotland (NRS) show that up to June 21, 4,119 deaths have been registered across the country which mentioned the virus on the death certificate – an increase of 49 on the last reporting period.

That weekly figure is a decrease of 20 from the previous week (June 15-21) and the eighth weekly reduction in a row.

The first mention of coronavirus in death registration in Scotland was in the week beginning March 16.

Today’s update also shows 47% of Covid-19 deaths registered to date related to deaths in care homes, 46% were in hospitals and 7% of deaths were at home or non-institutional settings.

The NRS report notes the proportion of coronavirus deaths which took place in care homes has risen over time but has dropped back in recent weeks. The number of deaths in care homes fell for an eighth week, by 15 to 20.
