Scottish government figures show five new Covid cases

Five new cases of coronavirus have been reported, according to Scottish government figures.

NHS Shetland says all those involved were contacts of existing patients.

The daily update total shows 16 in the last seven days.

That gives Shetland a per 100,000 population over seven days of 69.8.

It comes after three positive cases were reported on Saturday.

    “There is no new case on Shetland”. Shetland Health Board March 4th”
    Well, where did this lot come from? Bearing in mind an incubation period of 4 to 20 days, we are in for an interesting few weeks.
    Now how about quarantining non-essential visitors and testing all entering Shetland.
