Every region of Scotland has now registered at least one positive case of COVID-19.

It is a scary time, with numbers and statistics being released every day, and it can be difficult to keep track of the situation in your own area. 

We have compiled all of the country's data in one place, making it easy for our readers to view the latest figures in their area.

Positive cases and hospital numbers are updated daily just after 2pm, and deaths by region are updated every Wednesday. 

Please note: This tool looks at statistics for each health board, and uses your postcode to identify which health board covers your area. It does not reflect statistics in each individual postcode area.

How do we collect the data?

We update our tool every day with the latest figures.

The number of positive cases, people in hospital and people in intensive care are provided every day at 2pm by the Scottish Government. 

Positive test numbers are reported to Health Protection Scotland by laboratories, who then pass the numbers on to the Scottish Government.

NHS Boards provide the Scottish Government with management information on the numbers of patients in intensive care units, and also the number of patients in acute hospitals beds with confirmed or suspected COVID-19.

The number of deaths by health board are provided to the Scottish Government by National Records of Scotland. It includes all deaths of individuals with laboratory-confirmed COVID-19, and so includes deaths in hospitals, care homes and the community. 

The daily number of deaths does not mean that this was their date of death - it means that their death has now been registered, which can take a few days.

Figures include deaths where ‘suspected’ or ‘probable’ COVID-19 appears on the death certificate.

Numbers are provided by location of hospital, not residence.
