Speaking to the Scottish Parliament, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon reiterated that Scotland is “now on lockdown”.

She repeatedinstructions that people should only leave the home for basic necessities once a day, to exercise alone, for medical reasons or to support a vulnerable person or to travel to work if essential.

Social events of two or more people are prohibited, she said, though children under 18 can continue to move between households, but should take precautions.

Those who work in care or who have care responsibilities should continue to carry them out, she said.

She added: “People must stay at home. I know how hard this is for everybody but people should not be meeting friends or family members outside home.

“Life should not be feeling normal – if it is, you are not sticking to the rules.”

Ms Nicola Sturgeon said staying at home has become “the only way of saving lives”.

She told MSPs the Scottish Parliament will only meet one day a week rather than three “until the Easter recess at least”.

The Easter recess is due to start on April 4.
