A total of 965 people are in hospital with recently confirmed Covid-19, of whom 71 are in intensive care.

The daily figures also show 4,208,546 people have received their first dose of Covid vaccination and 3,845,180 have received their second dose.

The statistics were published in the wake of the Scottish Government issuing an assurance that “teething problems” with the launch of Scotland’s Covid vaccine passport scheme would be resolved within days.

The NHS Scotland Covid Status app was made available to download on Apple and Android devices on Thursday night.
