Scotland has recorded 386 positive coronavirus tests in the past 24 hours, Jeane Freeman said.
Speaking during the Scottish Government’s daily briefing, the Health Secretary said 202,470 people have now tested positive in Scotland, up from 202,084 the previous day.
The daily test positivity rate is 4.5 per cent, up from 3.8 per cent yesterday.
Of the new cases, 123 are in Greater Glasgow and Clyde, 70 in Lothian and 51 in Lanarkshire.
No new deaths have been recorded, meaning the death toll under this measure – of people who first tested positive for the virus within the previous 28 days – remains at 7,131.
There are 824 people in hospital confirmed to have the virus, down 13 in 24 hours, and 71 patients are in intensive care, down seven.
It comes as care home visits are allowed to commence once again.
From today, residents will be allowed to have two designated visitors each.
Visitors will be able to see their relative once a week.
