Scotland recorded 17 new positive cases of coronavirus in the last 24 hours, but none were in Forth Valley.

The daily figures from the Scottish Government show there have been no changes to the situation recorded in the health board area since yesterday (Wednesday).

The total number of positive cases in Forth Valley is currently 948, and nine people are being treated in hospital for Covid-19.

There are less than five people in the intensive care unit at Forth Valley Royal Hospital.

Over night there were 17 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 throughout Scotland.

The deaths of five people who had tested positive for the virus have been recorded in the last 24 hours.

A total of 132,001 people in Scotland have been tested through NHS labs to date.

Of these, 116,319 were negative and 15,682 were positive.

However, the government has said this will be an underestimate of the number of cases as not everyone with the virus will display symptoms, and not all those with symptoms will be tested.
