The seven-day Covid-19 infection rate in one local authority has remained significantly higher than in the rest of the country. 

Coronavirus cases per 100,000 people between March 26 and April 1 in the Western Isles reached 1807.5.

Despite being a noticeable fall compared to the previous week's rate at 3218.9, it remains the highest infection rate in Scotland.  

Between March 26 and April 1, 55,137 new positive Covid-19 cases were recorded across the country - a decrease from 76,176 cases in the prior seven day period. 

However, the latest data from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) showed that the trend in people catching the virus was still uncertain.
