Three more people have tested positive for Covid-19 in a cluster affecting Greater Glasgow and Clyde, taking the number affected to 11.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said all three were amongst known contacts of the earlier cases, and are self-isolating.

The cases are linked to the M&D Green pharmacy in John Wood Street, Port Glasgow and Amazon in Gourock. 

Some of those visited the following locations during the period in which they may have been infectious to others: The Botany on Maryhill Road in Glasgow, The Queen of the Loch by Marston's Inn, Lomond Woods Holiday Park and Sweeney’s Cruises in West Dunbartonshire.

Public health officials said anyone who has been in those locations recently should remain vigilant.

NHSGGC said health and local environmental health staff are working closely with the businesses to trace any close contacts of the cases, and appropriate advice is being given to these individuals including on self-isolation.

A spokeswoman added: "All the businesses continue to operate including the pharmacy and are following the guidance on social distancing and other precautions to keep their customers and staff safe.

"None of the cases or their contacts who are linked to the pharmacy are currently working there, and infection control measures in the pharmacy have been carefully reviewed.

"Anyone using the pharmacy or getting their medication from the pharmacy can be reassured that it is safe.

Dr Linda de Caestecker, Director of Public Health, NHSGGC said all the cases were experiencing mild symptoms and isolating at home.

She said: “The pharmacy, which has been named today as M&D Green, continues to provide a valuable service to the community and is following all the correct infection control protocols to ensure customers are safe.”

Dr Daniel Carter, Consultant in Public Health Medicine and Chair of the IMT, added:  “We would also ask that anyone who has been in any of these businesses should stay vigilant and alert to any symptoms suggestive of Covid-19. 

"If symptoms arise people should immediately self-isolate and seek a test otherwise they do not need to do anything additional to these general measures unless they are contacted by the Test and Protect service.”

“Anyone who needs to do anything over and above these general measures will be contacted by the Test and Protect service and given specific advice."
