No new deaths have been recorded in Scotland for the second day in a row.

It is worth noting that the daily figure of people who have died from covid-19 can often be artificially low on a Monday as many registry offices are closed on the weekend.

Since the start of the pandemic, the total number of people who have died from coronavirus in Scotland is sitting at 7,552.

In total, 359 new cases of covid-19 were recorded in the last 24 hours.
