A Maryhill restauraunt linked to a COVID-19 cluster outbreak has insisted it is now "probably the safest place to eat in Glasgow". 

The Botany on Maryhill Road was yesterday identified as a location visited by somebody with confirmed coronavirus

The cases stemmed from the M&D Green pharmacy in John Wood Street, Port Glasgow and Amazon in Gourock. 

The Maryhill restaurant has however insisted it will remain open for business as their track and trace system successfully found the customer diagnosed with COVID-19 and anybody who may have been near him.
