Seven people have died and 2,190 new people have been infected with coronavirus in Scotland in the past 24 hours.
The latest figures from the Scottish government show the daily test positivity rate is at 9% with 435 people are in hospital.
A fifth of staff could be absent from one NHS trust in England within three weeks from now, a representative organisation has warned, due in part to staff having to self-isolate amid rising coronavirus infections.
NHS Providers, a membership organisation of NHS trusts in England, said the staff shortage, also caused by people taking annual leave delayed by the pandemic, could lead to 900 operations being cancelled. It declined to name the trust.
