Orkney’s COVID case total reduced

The total number of COVID-19 cases attributed to Orkney has been reduced, according to daily figures posted by the Scottish Government.

The Scottish Government explained that an error had caused a number of cases across Scotland to be counted twice in recent data.

Explaining the effect this would have on figures across the nation, the Government said: “There was a reduction of 752 in the cumulative number of positive cases due to the removal of duplicate historic cases.”

If you develop coronavirus symptoms, you must seek a test and self-isolate immediately.
