Here are the latest weekly rates of new cases of Covid-19 for every local authority area in Scotland.

The figures, for the seven days to October 6, are based on tests carried out in NHS laboratories and by commercial partners.

The rate is expressed as the number of new cases per 100,000 people.

Data for the most recent three days – October 7-9 – has been excluded as it is incomplete and likely to be revised.

The list has been calculated by the PA news agency and is based on data published by Public Health Scotland.
