Next steps

The Scottish Government continues to work closely with Public Health Scotland, modelling groups, the Office for National Statistics (ONS), the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and YouGov to monitor what is happening across Scotland.

To align with UKHSA reporting and the Modelling the Epidemic report, the State of the Epidemic report will move to publishing every two weeks from 1 April 2022. This report will continue to provide an overview of the current Covid-19 situation in Scotland incorporating a variety of data sources including estimates of the prevalence of Covid-19, hospitalisations and deaths and how Scotland's figures compare to those from the rest of the UK, where possible.

Investigations are ongoing by NERVTAG, SPI-M, SAGE, UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), and Public Health Scotland regarding the impact of new variants and of vaccination; this will be reflected here as work is undertaken.
