The last 24 hours has seen 146 positive cases of coronavirus reported across Scotland, with no new reported deaths.
The figures were announced by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon at a press conference.
Out of the total number of cases, 79 of them are in the Greater Glasgow area, with 19 in Lanarkshire, 13 in the Lothian, nine in Ayrshire, and the rest spread thinly across the other health boards.
Ms Sturgeon commented on the rise in cases saying: “It would be wrong to say that there isn’t a warning there” and has asked that people continue to work hard to stop the spread of the virus.
She added: “This is a key moment” and has warned that it may be that phase four is further delayed, and that current plans to loosen restrictions may be cancelled.
