Situation by Local Authority within Scotland
In the week leading up to 9 April 2022, Shetland Islands had the highest combined PCR and LFD weekly case rate by specimen date, reporting 1,509 cases per 100,000 population. Orkney Islands had the lowest weekly combined LFD and PCR case rate in the same time period, reporting 540 cases per 100,000. The total combined LFD and PCR weekly case rates by specimen date per 100,000 had increased in one local authority (Shetland Islands) in the week leading up to 9 April 2022 compared with the weekly case rate leading up to 2 April 2022, while the other 31 local authorities saw a decrease in the same period (Figure 14).
Projections of the number of cases per 100,000 population are not published in the Modelling the Epidemic report this week. This analysis indicated which local authorities are likely to experience high levels of Covid-19 in two weeks’ time. As a result of changes to widespread population testing the projections of numbers of positive tests are now much less useful for tracking the progression of the disease in Scotland.
