Samples from every health board area are tested for traces of non-infective Covid-19 ribonucleic acid (RNA) and shared with public health partners so they can see where rates are increasing or decreasing. In combination with community testing, this information is helping Scotland understand the prevalence and distribution of the virus, and gives a broader, unbiased, picture of the possible number of cases in a community.

The stats for Scotland published on 14th of September 2021 are as follows:

  • 3,375 new cases of COVID-19 reported
  • 31,837* new tests for COVID-19 that reported results
