About these data
The data reported are management information based on a range of operational systems. While checks are completed before publication to ensure data robustness, due to the speed of reporting these data are not currently subject to the full range of processes and quality assurance that would be required for Official Statistics. For more information about the data please see Data definitions and sources.
The latest numbers will publish at 2pm each day.
Occasionally we publish one-off pieces of data and information when there is public interest in making them available. An example of this was when we released figures to show the percentage of reported cases that were likely to be the variant (VOC-202012/01). Please see our additional data and information page for more detail.
Other data sources
Public Health Scotland weekly statistical report
Public Health Scotland publish a weekly statistical report that presents data on COVID-19 across NHSScotland. As well as providing information on COVID-19 confirmed cases and admissions to hospital, it looks at some of the wider impacts of the virus on the healthcare system, including trends in COVID-19 related use of other NHS services such as NHS24 and Scottish Ambulance Service. It also presents statistics on Test and Protect and quarantining and demographic characteristics (age, sex, deprivation) of people affected by COVID-19. Weekly reports and accompanying interactive dashboards are available on the Public Health Scotland website.
COVID-19: modelling the epidemic in Scotland
The Scottish Government, like other governments around the world, is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. A key part of this response is to model the potential spread and level of the virus in Scotland, and to compare the Scottish experience to other parts of the UK and other countries around the world. The results of this work are used to help the Scottish Government and the wider public sector, and in particular the health service, plan and put in place what is needed to keep us safe and treat people who have virus e.g. to decide how many Intensive Care Beds (ICU) we need for COVID patients. Modelling reports are available on the Coronavirus (COVID-19): modelling the epidemic publications page
Scottish Government COVID-19 four harms dashboard
The Scottish Government publishes a dashboard which brings together data and evidence on the broader impacts of COVID-19. These are referred to as the four harms of COVID-19:
- direct health impact
- wider health impacts
- societal impacts
- economic impacts
It is updated every Monday.
Isolate and support data
We publish a monthly summary of management information provided by local authorities on support provided for self-isolation and to those in wider need during the coronavirus pandemic.
ONS Covid-19 Infection Survey
The Scottish results of the Office for National Statistics (ONS) COVID-19 Infection Survey are published on the Scottish Government website, and on the ONS website alongside results for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The survey aims to establish:
- how many people test positive for COVID-19 infection at a given point in time, regardless of whether they report experiencing coronavirus symptoms (estimates first published on 23 October)
- the number of people who test positive for antibodies, to indicate how many people are ever likely to have had the infection, or have been vaccinated
- the average number of new infections per week over the course of the study
