A total of 176 people have tested positive for coronavirus in the past 24-hours, according to the latest Scottish Government statistics. 

It comes after 16,434 new tests for Covid-19 that reported results, of which only 1.3% were positive. 

One more death of a person who tested positive for the virus has been registered.

A technical issue has caused a delay to official vaccination figures however it is believed that more than a million people are now fully vaccinated in Scotland

Speaking about the milestone in second doses Nicola Sturgeon said: “I want to say a huge thank you to everyone working on our vaccine programme and everyone who has rolled up their sleeve.

“With well over 2.7 million people having received their first dose, it is excellent news that a million people, nearly a quarter of the adult population, and many of those most vulnerable to the virus, will have had their second dose.

"The more people who get their vaccine the more protected we are as a society from Covid and I welcome the incredibly high take up rates across Scotland.

“With infection rates falling as a result of the steps people have taken to protect themselves and the vaccination programme, we can now cautiously open up more of our economy and our society and I know people will be looking forward to getting out a bit more next week."
