Worry rises as some areas of Scotland see a spike in COVID-19 cases. Glasgow and Moray, as well as Edinburgh towns Mordun and Craigour are waiting to hear whether they will join the rest of mainland Scotland into Level 2 restrictions on Monday.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is to address the situation in parliament later today. Earlier this week, Ms Sturgeon confirmed Scotland will move into the next phase of easing Coronavirus Restrictions; People can drink indoors and visit other homes, with social distancing being reduced in some places.

The worry is that with a sudden spike in cases, scientists expect to see that B.1.617.2 Indian variant is in transmission. It is hoped that by keeping Glasgow, Moray, Mordum and Craigour under observations, the transmission of COVID-19 can be prevented.

Clinical Director Professor Jason Leitch says that the spike “is relatively contained, not yet [an] exponential growth like we have seen with this virus before.” People in these ‘hotspot’ areas are, however, being warned and told to keep caution.
