In our Weekly COVID19 Statistical Reports, Public Health Scotland publishes analysis that aims to develop understanding of the impact of COVID19 across the population. Today our report includes an initial analysis of the number of cases (people who have tested positive with a test date on or after 28 May) and the numbers of contacts traced as result.
From 28 May to 7 June 2020, 681 cases were recorded in the contact tracing system, from which 741 contacts have been traced.
Scott Heald, Head of Profession for Statistics at Public Health Scotland said:
"The total number of people going through the contact tracing system reflects expected demand during this period of national lockdown.
"Importantly, the figures show that every case that needed followed up was actioned, with the national network of health boards working with Public Health Scotland to respond to current needs.
"In the weeks ahead we’ll be analysing the data further to present trends and geographical breakdowns.”
