Scotland's COVID-19 reproduction number rises to 0.6-1.0

Thu, 6th Aug 2020 12:19

LONDON, Aug 6 (Reuters) - Scotland's novel coronavirus
reproduction number is 0.6 to 1.0, up from 0.6 to 0.9, First
Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Thursday, cautioning against
any complacency as there had been an increase in cases over
recent days.

"I do want to warn, and very strongly warn, against any
shred of complacency: we have undoubtedly seen in recent days an
increase in positive cases and that increase might not yet be
reflected in the modelling," Sturgeon said.

"This virus is very much still out there and circulating in
Scotland," she added.
