    • Dr Catherine Calderwood is visited by police and warned over her future conduct, with some MSPs saying her position is untenable.
    • Nicola Sturgeon says Dr Calderwood's actions were "wrong" but she will remain in her post, although withdrawn from a public-facing role.
    • Two more people have died from the virus in Scotland, bringing the total to 220, although Ms Sturgeon warns this figure will be "artificially low".

  2. 15 deaths connected to Covid-19 at Glasgow care home

    Burlington Court Care Home

    A total of 15 residents at a care home in the east end of Glasgow have died after showing symptoms of coronavirus.

    Yesterday, Burlington Court Care Home in Cranhill said 13 people had passed away in the last week, but BBC Scotland understands the figure now stands at 15 since 27 March.

    At her daily briefing earlier, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon insisted the Scottish Government will do "everything they can" to ensure those in care homes get the treatment they need.

  3. Care worker dies with suspected coronavirus

    A care worker in West Dunbartonshire has died with suspected coronavirus, according to Scottish Labour MSP Monica Lennon.

    The death of the employee of West Dunbartonshire Health and Social Care Partnership was confirmed "with deepest sadness" by its chief officer, Ben Culshaw.

    Ms Lennon said absence levels among social care workers were "soaring" across Scotland and there were fears about a lack of personal protective equipment.

    She said she has written to the first minister asking her to guarantee safe systems of work for all social care staff "because lives are at risk".

    Mr Culshaw said it was following government and health guidance and "doing everything we can to protect, support and safeguard our workers, including by providing training and PPE."

  4. How may coronavirus cases are there in Scotland?

    Chart showing number of cases in Scotland

    The first coronavirus case in Scotland was detected on 1 March by NHS Tayside and the number of patients testing positive for Covid-19 has risen steadily since then.

    There are currently 3,706 confirmed cases, although the actual number could be more than 200,000.

    The chart below shows how the number of reported deaths from coronavirus has risen since the first death on 13 March.

    Nicola Sturgeon highlighted that today's modest rise of two deaths, bringing the confirmed total to 220, is likely to be "artificially low" because of reporting processes and a truer picture is likely to emerge in the coming days.

  5. 'The rules are there for everyone'

    UK Government Health Secretary Matt Hancock

    Asked at a UK Government coronavirus briefing about Scotland's chief medical officer Dr Catherine Calderwood, who faced calls to resign after travelling to her second home, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: "This is a matter for the Scottish government."

    "These rules are there for everyone," he added.

    Mr Hancock also said the government "can't rule out further steps" if people fail to heed rules with regard to exercise, although he stressed the importance of it to both physical and mental health.

    "I don't want anyone to think any changes on social distancing are imminent, because the vast majority are following the rules," he added.

  6. Chief medical officer withdrawn from media briefings 'for foreseeable future'

    First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says she is "acutely aware" of the importance of public trust in government advice to stay at home, and that Dr Catherine Calderwood will no longer have a public-facing role.

    "To maintain that trust we will be revising our public information campaign and the chief medical officer will be withdrawing from media briefings for the foreseeable future," she said.

    "She will continue to provide the Scottish government with the scientific and medical advice on the spread of coronavirus."

  11. Government pledges £38m to help feed struggling families

    Nicola Sturgeon

    Nicola Sturgeon says the Scottish government is making £38m available to local authorities to help people who are struggling to feed themselves during the current crisis, particularly families whose children rely on free school meals.

    "This funding is intended to help councils help them," she said.

    The first minister also revealed that almost 10,000 people have come forward to help increase health service capacity, including medical students, retired NHS staff, those on a career break and health care workers from outside the NHS.

    Ms Sturgeon said processes such as disclosure checks were being fast-tracked so they can join the workforce as soon as possible.

    Catherine Calderwood

    Asked about the reasons behind her visits to her second home, Dr Calderwood said: "There are no reasons I can give you that would justify being away from my own home in Edinburgh.

    "I have let the public in Scotland down and colleagues in the NHS down. I apologize unreservedly for that."

  13. 16 deaths at Burlington care home

    Care home

    Earlier in her briefing, Nicola Sturgeon confimed that the Burlington Court Care Home in Glasgow has notified the Care Inspectorate of 16 deaths since 27 March, 12 of them "displaying symptoms consistent with Covid-19".

    "My thoughts are with the families of all of them," added the first minister.

    "This has brought home that staff in the care sector are doing a very demanding job in very stressful circumstances, and I am grateful to each and every one of them for the work they do."

  14. Latest figures 'not representative of events' - Sturgeon


    In announcing the latest coronavirus figures, with two more deaths taking the tally of hospital deaths in Scotland to 220, Nicola Sturgeon said they should "not be taken as representative of events over this weekend".

    The first minister noted that the reporting system for deaths is not fully up and running seven days a week and that she expects the figures reported today, and on Monday, to be "artificially low".

    "These figures will be reconciled on Tuesday and Wednesday and I expect them to increase from the 46 deaths reported yesterday," she added.

  15. 'This was a mistake and there are no excuses' - Calderwood

    The chief medical officer, Dr Catherine Calderwood, added: "I know how important the advice is that I have issued.

    "This was a mistake, human error and there are no excuses," she said.

    "My intention is to continue to focus on my job."

    She said she recognised that she had let both the NHS and the general public down.

    Dr Catherine Calderwood confirms that as well as this weekend, she was also at her second home in Fife with her husband last weekend.

    "I did not follow the advice I am giving to others and I am truly sorry for that," she said.

    She added that she had seen comments calling her a "hypocrite" and that what she had done was "irresponsible".

    "What I did was wrong, I am very sorry - it will not happen again," she added.

  17. BreakingCalderwood was 'wrong' but her 'expertise is invaulable'

    Nicola Sturgeon says Dr Catherine Calderwood was "wrong" to visit her second home in Fife.

    "She has apologised to me unreservedly and the public, and she was right to do so," said the first minister.

    "All of us, including me, will make mistakes in these unprecedented times, and when we do, we must be candid about it and learn from it.

    "Her advice and expertise has been invaluable to me and continues to be so. If I am able to do what I need to do and steer the country through this crisis to the best of my ability, I need her to focus on the job that she is doing - notwithstanding her mistake on this - extremely well.”

    A further two people have died with coronavirus in Scotland, taking the total to 220, according to the latest figures released by the Scottish government.
