There were 2 459 new cases in the last 24 hours in Scotland.
There were 36 712 in England, per head of population 50% higher.
There were 3 200 in Wales, per head of population, nearly 100% higher.
BBC Scotland, UK, England and Wales have no comment on this.
Why might this be happening?
People in Scotland are still wearing facemasks in enclosed spaces?
The Scottish Government has done better on rolling out vaccines?
BBC Health, above, suggest less mask wearing, more mixing, waning immunity and a stalled vaccine rollout.
