Hospitals across the country are preparing for a rise in Covid-19 cases, BBC Scotland was given special access to Borders General Hospital as staff there get new coronavirus wards ready. Sarah Horan, associate director of nursing, said: "When people are admitted with suspected Covid then we have them in side rooms. "Once we know they do have Covid - and they have a positive swab result - then it's very safe that we can move them from the side room into one of these six-bedded bays. "Once you have a positive result, in a healthcare setting, you are not at risk to anyone else who has a positive result. "So that then means we can care for the patients is a six-bedded area, and keep the side rooms safe for the patients that need them." Gareth Clinkscale, hospital manager, said: "We have detailed modelling, that is updated on a daily basis, looking at the activity that is coming in, that we base our bed plans on. "It is absolutely planning for that worst case scenario. "The key message is for us is that people need to stay at home. We are hoping social distancing will help flatten that curve."
