Coronavirus cases have increased in Scotland again.

The number of deaths in Scotland from coronavirus has risen by 13 in a single day.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon gave an update on the numbers of confirmed cases of coronavirus as party of her daily press briefing this afternoon.

The number of confirmed cases of coronavirus among those tested now stands at 1993, up by 430 from yesterday.

While that rise is significant Ms Sturgeon said it was partly due to a backlog of confirmed cases after one laboratory was unable to give an update on numbers over the weekend.

It also reflected an increase in the amount of testing she said.
