Coronavirus / Thirteen more Covid cases

A TOTAL of 13 new Covid cases have been confirmed in Shetland in the last 24 hours.

It comes after 11 cases were confirmed on each of the last three days.

A total of 4,336 positive tests have been reported across Scotland in the last day, which is a drop on the last figure.

But first minister Nicola Sturgeon said it has taken longer to turnaround tests due to demand, meaning the figure does not account for all tests carried out.

She also confirmed the more transmissible Omicron variant is now the dominant strain of Covid in Scotland.
