The infection rate for Scotland as a whole is high and we must take care but it is mainly due to a spike in the Greater Glasgow area and the adjacent Lanarkshire and, even there, the levels are manageable relative to those in the first twenty or so cases above, all in England and Wales.
NHS Borders appears at 35 per 100 000, well down the list, and NHS Lothian at 26 even further down but only the Glasgow area spike is worthy of concern and serious action. Scotland’s proven contact tracers can be expected to clear the Lothian and Borders cases up within days, as they did in Dumfries, Motherwell, Aberdeen and Coupar Angus, while more draconian measures might be needed in Glasgow and Lanarkshire.
Finally, conjecture, I know, but was the Scottish increase largely due to imported infections brought in by those returning from Spain, in particular, via our airports? If so, has most of that traffic now finished for this year?
