THE Scottish Government's National Clinical Director has said we "never know" if events in Glasgow over the last week were superspreader events.

Concerns about the spread of coronavirus have been raised following the anti-dawn raid protest that took place on Kenmure Street in Pollokshields last Thursday and Rangers league title celebrations over the weekend.

But Jason Leitch told Good Morning Scotland today that it is far too early to know.

He told the BBC Scotland radio show: "You may never actually know. We've had this challenge of course throughout the pandemic because of the incubation period of the virus."

"This virus takes 7-10 days to show and you don't get symptoms. 30% don't get symptoms at all, they just get the virus and they can then spread it.

"I can tell you for sure that gatherings don't make it easier. They don't make it better. So whether you got it or not, it's not helpful and indoors is worse than outdoors. Small groups are easier than big groups, all the things we know, so disappointed to see gatherings at the weekend and we'll manage whatever comes from it."
