There have been 571,471 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Scotland and 8,666 people have died following a positive test for
the virus, according to the Scottish government.

This page analyses the key figures for the Covid pandemic in Scotland and was last updated using figures available at 14:00
on 3 October.

The Scottish government only publishes "headline statistics" on cases, deaths and vaccinations over the weekend.
This page will be fully updated again on Monday.

Confirmed cases of Covid-19
There have been 17,595 cases reported over the past seven days, with 2,040 cases confirmed on Sunday.

The figures are based on the date of the test rather than when the test result was reported, which is the daily figure given out
by the Scottish government.

Because of the time it takes to process the tests and submit records, the most recent figures in this chart are from four
days ago.

The actual number of people infected during the course of the outbreak will be far higher than the overall confirmed cases
figure, as many people who have Covid-19 are not tested.

This next chart shows the average number of positive cases being detected each day has been changing in Scotland over
the last few weeks.

How many cases are there in my area?
The number of positive cases in each local authority is published daily by Public Health Scotland.

Recent data often underestimates the number of positive tests as there are sometimes delays before results are recorded,

so this chart uses figures from three days ago.

The Scottish government also publishes the figures on the number of cases across Scotland's 14 health boards.

Deaths from Covid-19
The first coronavirus death in Scotland was reported by NHS Lothian on 13 March 2020.

The spring outbreak peaked in mid-April 2020 and then mainly declined until the summer, when Scotland went for a long
period when there were no deaths following a positive test for Covid-19.

The rate of new deaths rose again in the autumn as the second wave of the pandemic took hold, finally peaking at
the end of January 2021.

The chart below shows data relating to the actual date of death, rather than registration of deaths, so the most recent
figures are subject to revision.

There are three ways to count deaths from Covid-19.

The Scottish government's daily announcement counts deaths within 28 days of a positive test for Covid-19, whereas
the National Records of Scotland (NRS) counts all death certificates that mention Covid-19, even if the person
has not been tested for the virus.
