Sadly, 54 coronavirus-related deaths across Scotland have been recorded in the past 24 hours of patients who first tested positive over the past 28 days. This brings the Scottish death toll to 5135.

The news comes after 11 local authorities - including Glasgow - were placed on level four of the five-tier coronavirus restrictions system. 

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: "The measures that come with that are tough - I'm not going to sugar-coat that. They include the closing of all non-essential indoor retail, of hospitality except for takeaway, and premises like hairdressers, indoor gyms, and entertainment venues.

"Firstly, and most importantly, to reduce deaths and serious illness. Second, it's to ensure hospitals and intensive care units can cope and that they can be there over the winter period to treat people with Covid and people who present with other illnesses as well.

"Thirdly, it is to allow the prospect of people being able to meet up over the Christmas period without that then leading to much more illness and loss of life as we go into next year."

A review on the Covid-19 restrictions placed on the 11 local authorities will be reviewed, with an update expected from the First Minister on 11 December.
