According to reports reaching oyogist.com, Scotland has one new case of the new Omicron Covid-19 variant.
The country also recorded 14 coronavirus-linked deaths and 1,257 new cases in the past 24 hours, the latest data has shown.
The total number of people infected with the new Covid 19 strain in the country is now pegged at 30.
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has the most of the new variant cases at 11, followed by NHS Lanarkshire with nine, five in NHS Forth Valley, three in NHS Highland and two in NHS Grampian.
However a “processing issue with UK government lab tests” has contributed to lower than expected cases and tests. Investigations are ongoing to resolve the problem.
