The coronavirus pandemic has seen communities from across Scotland help each other.

Now, they make the food at home and deliver it to front line NHS staff at the nearby Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, and also to vulnerable people in the area.Copyright: Sukhpreet SinghCopyright: Sukhpreet SinghCopyright: Sukhpreet SinghCopyright: Sukhpreet Singh

As lockdown measures force most people to stay at home, a landscape artist from Kinross-shire ran a marathon round his own garden on Saturday.
Andy Laycock, a member of a local running club, Kinross Road Runners, completed 700 laps of his garden in Milnathort, the same small town from where Scottish running star Laura Muir hails.
Mr Laycock, who works at the University of Edinburgh, took just over four hours and 39 minutes to complete the 26.2 miles marathon distance.

Health Secretary Jeane Freeman says the Scottish government hope to be able to share figures for the number of coronavirus cases in care homes later this week.
About half of Scotland's privately-run care homes have suspected coronavirus cases, according to industry leaders, with several reporting multiple deaths in recent weeks, but official figures only include cases recorded in hospitals.
"We have tried to make sure the information we share is as transparent as possible but it is really important that we have confidence about the robustness and accuracy of that information," Ms Freeman said.
"So we are working with the Care Inspectorate to check and double-check the information they are working with before we have the confidence to do that. We intend to be able to do that later this week."

There are also five people with either confirmed or suspected Covid-19 in the Golden Jubilee National Hospital in Clydebank, a Special Health Board appointed by NHS Scotland.
Boris Johnson singles out individual names while praising the "astonishing" care he received in hospital.
Here's a summary of developments from today's briefing from the Scottish government:
- A further 24 people have died in Scottish hospitals from Covid-19, although the government says this number should be treated with caution.
- There has been a drop of 100 in the number of patients in hospital with either confirmed or suspected Covid-19 to 1,755, although "it is too early to read anything into that".
- Adult social care workers will get a pay increase to ensure they all receive the minimum living wage of £9.30 per hour.
- More than 8,000 health or social care workers have been tested across Scotland so far.
- More than100 taxi and car hire firms have offered to help transport people to Covid-19 community assessment centres.
- More than 60,000 people have registered to volunteer for the government's 'Scotland Cares' campaign.
Scotland’s National Clinical Director Prof Jason Leitch says parents must not be scared to take their children to hospital if any underlying health conditions - such as asthma, diabetes, or a neurological condition - show signs of deteriorating.
"You must access the health care your child needs," he stresses, adding if people need advice, they should phone their GP, or 111 out of hours.
There appears to be some confusion between self-isolation and social distancing, Prof Leitch says, reiterating that:
- If you have any coronavirus symptons, you should stay at home for seven full days, and shouldn't go out for any reason
- the rest of household should stay at home for 14 days
His main message is that the safest place for individuals and their families is at home.Quote Message: "The best protection against this virus is your front door. You are not stuck at home, you are safe at home." from Professor Jason Leitch Scotland's national clinical director
Fiona McQueen, Scotland's chief nursing officer, says she has been "bowled over" by more than 16,000 doctors, nurses, midwives, and other medical professionals offering to rejoin the NHS to help tackle the coronavirus crisis.
She stresses that just because the service is focusing on Covid-19, it "doesn't mean the rest of the NHS has changed course".
Community nurses are continuing to provide palliative and end-of-life care, while midwives remain on call for expectant mothers, even if some meetings may be done electronically rather than face-to-face.
Birthing partners will still be able to come and support mothers during the birth of their children, she adds.

As of lunchtime on Friday, more than 60,000 people had registered to volunteer for the government's 'Scotland Cares' campaign.
Jeane Freeman says not all volunteers will be used immediately, but that all offers to help are very welcome.
"At a time when so many of us have anxieties and concerns, it lifts our hearts to see so many people stepping forward to help others," adds the health secretary.
While ambulances have so far been used to transport people suspected of having Covid-19 to community assessment centres, Jeane Freeman says the Scottish government is keen to free up those vehicles and crews.
After talks with Transport Scotland, Public Health Scotland and NHS Scotland, she says they have received more than 100 offers of help from taxi companies and car hire firms to help take people to the centres, subject to social distancing guidelines.
"I am grateful to all the companies who have volunteered their vehicles and drivers to help our NHS," she added.
