Under that strange choice of photograph, the New Scientist reported:

The number of excess deaths in the UK since mid-March now stands at 65,700, according to an analysis of data from the Office of National Statistics by the Financial Times. Excess deaths are a calculation of how many more deaths have occurred than would normally be expected, and include deaths from any cause.

The official figures remain at 42,927: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/uk/

Using the ONS/FT figures, Scotland’s excess deaths would be a twelfth or around 5 500.

BBC Scotland using NRS data on the 17th June put the figure at 4 878.

More important, for deciding what to do next, are death rates in more recent weeks, after the Scottish Government diverged from the UK ‘herd immunity’ strategy in late March.

The 7 day average for Scotland is currently 2, whereas it is around 120 in England. Per capita, the rate in England is nearly 6 times higher.
