UPDATE: Government rectifies Covid-19 figures
The Scottish government has rectified the number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in the isles, putting the total back at 15.
Shetland’s health board had sought clarification from the government on figures suggesting a drop in positive coronavirus cases here.
Figures published at 2pm on Tuesday reported a drop in the number of cases to 11, from 15 – these have since been updated.
The testing regime has changed since the response to the pandemic moved into the “delay” phase, meaning that only tests undertaken for people who are unwell in hospital with suspected Covid-19 are being taken, and there will be no community testing.
