Infection rates for this variant of Covid were as great here as in any other part of the UK.
As Scotland’s Covid infection level fell again to the lowest in the UK, the Conservatives are allowed to repeat inaccurate statistics, lies really, by BBC Scotland, unchallenged.
In a trail going back to early in the month, the confirmed recorded data are ignored.
You can see that after a period of lower infections in Scotland from October 2021, the Scottish Government, in mid-December, could see that the level was climbing sharply and put in place stricter measures than in England.
By January 5th the numbers were peaking in both countries but only 5 days later, the rate in Scotland began to fall lower and is now132% higher in England (147 per 100K) than in Scotland (63 per 100K).
What do these numbers mean in the context of Scotland’s 5.44 million population? In the last 24 hours alone 788 fewer cases and thousand fewer in the preceding days.
