Still the threat of Covid-19 lingers

SCOTLAND has suffered five more Covid-19 deaths and 15 new confirmed cases, the latest official figures show. Public Health Scotland say it means that Scotland has seen 2,453 deaths and they report 567 people were in hospital with the virus last night, 11 of whom were in intensive care with a further eight in intensive care with suspected Covid-19. The way the figures are collated changed on Monday and now include confirmed cases at UK Government Regional Testing Centres (RTCs). A total of 213,527 people in Scotland have been tested through NHS Scotland labs and RTCs to date. Of these: 195,482 were confirmed negative 18,045 were positive PHS say this will be an underestimate of the number of cases. Not everyone with the virus will display symptoms and not all those with symptoms will be tested. The alteration to the counting methodology means there is no breakdown of the figures by health board as yet. That is expected to be delivered on Thursday. The most up-to-date figures from NHS Dumfries and Galloway – released on June 10 – show the total number of positive Covid-19 cases in the region was 260. Again as of noon on June 10, there have been 44 deaths in the region, either within a hospital setting or within the community, in which Coronavirus was either the primary cause of death or a factor potentially contributing to death.
