Confirmed or suspected coronavirus deaths in Scotland fell to below 100 in the week to May 1, according to the latest figures.

Data from National Records of Scotland (NRS) shows there were 94 deaths involving Covid-19 in the week April 25 to May 1 – 27 fewer than the previous week.

It means that as of May 1, there have been 14,556 deaths registered in Scotland where Covid was mentioned on the death certificate.

The statistics are published weekly and differ from the lab-confirmed coronavirus deaths announced on weekdays by Public Health Scotland because the NRS figures include suspected or probable cases of Covid.
