The rate of increase of Covid-19 cases in Scotland appears to be slowing down, Nicola Sturgeon has said, but she warned cases are still “far too high”. In a coronavirus statement at the Scottish Parliament she told MSPs an increase of more than 70% in average new daily cases was recorded between the week to August 22 and the week to August 29. However, figures for the most recent week, to September 5, show a daily average of 6,304 – an increase of 9%.
