The new figures comes as a new Scottish Governmet paper revealed the NHS will be overwhelmed if schools are reopened this month.

Schools were among the first institutions to close when coronavirus took hold.

The Scottish Government said reopening them in May, in a worst-case scenario, could lead to more than 30,000 people needing hospital treatment.

During the daily briefing on coronavirus in Edinburgh, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said 26,000 people in Scotland are believed to be currently infectious, with the reproduction rate – or R number – between 0.7 and one.

The Framework for Decision Making document said the latest bed capacity the NHS has for Covid-19 patients is 4,250.

The paper said: “This chart shows that, in the ‘better’ scenario, primary schools and nurseries in Scotland would be able to reopen without causing a resurgence in the virus.

“However, given the current level of infections and R, the chart also shows that, in the ‘most likely’ scenario, full reopening would cause a resurgence in the virus such that hospital capacity in Scotland would be overwhelmed in less than two months.

“A ‘worse’ scenario would further exacerbate the situation.

“These scenarios illustrate the risks we face in considering different options and the merit in delaying a decision to reopen until transmission of the virus is much reduced from the current level.”

The publication also outlined options being explored by the Scottish Government for the return of children to schools, including a potential phased return depending on “priority groups” of children, such as those who are deemed to be vulnerable and those who are in transition between educational phases.

Ministers are also looking at an overhaul of the schooling system “for the foreseeable future”, with pupils undertaking a mix of in-home and in-school learning.

Projections in the document suggest more than 30,000 people may need hospital treatment if schools open this month.

The paper said: “This would include attending school part-time in blocks of a few days or even a week at a time, to enable deep cleaning of schools between groups.

“Learning at home will be supported by consistent, high quality online materials which will be developed to support the curriculum.”

Despite the laying out of options, the First Minister repeatedly pointed out that it is currently too early to plan to re-open schools, along with easing any of the other lockdown measures put in place.
