Headlining in the Herald last night:
Three cases of a Covid-19 ‘variant of concern’ first identified in Brazil, have been identified in Scotland, officials have confirmed. Following their return to north east Scotland from Brazil, via Paris and London, three Scottish residents entered self-isolation and then subsequently tested positive for coronvirus, it has been confirmed. These individuals then self-isolated for the required period of 10 days.
These three have already self-isolated for ten days and no other cases have emerged from those they shared the flights with?
So, there are currently really no cases ‘hitting’ Scotland?
So, Scotland’s test, trace and isolate system works.
Any in England? Three. BBC Scotland reports:
PHE said officials are now [still?] tracking down passengers who were on the same flight from Sao Paulo to Heathrow, via Zurich. The third case identified in England is not linked to the other two cases and the whereabouts of that person are still not known. PHE said the person did not complete their test registration card so follow-up details are unavailable.
So, England’s test, trace and isolate system still not working?
