Coronavirus / Reduction in number of Covid-19 cases

SHETLAND has recorded a further two positive Covid-19 tests in the past 24 hours, according to official statistics.

The Scottish Government’s daily update showed the prevalence of the virus in the islands to be a fraction of the levels recorded on the Scottish mainland, where over 4,000 cases were recorded. 

Shetland’s seven-day average of 122 cases per 100,000 people is the second lowest in the country after Orkney.

Those figures are based on data up to Monday (20 September), since when case numbers have continued to fall.

There were single positive cases on both Tuesday and Wednesday.
