Nicola Sturgeon has urged people in Scotland to keep following the lockdown ahead of Easter.
“I know how hard it is for people to do that, it will seem even harder over this Easter holiday weekend, especially for families with children and indeed for the children themselves and for older people who would normally be spending time with their grandchildren,” she said.
“Please stay in touch with family, friends and loved ones in whatever alternative way best works for you.
“Reach out to and look out for people even as you stay physically apart from them, but please do follow the rules and stay at home over Easter.”
The number of coronavirus patients to have died in Scotland has risen again – up by 81 to 447.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced the increase during a live online Scottish government Q&A with other party leaders.
There are also now 1,781 patients in hospital with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 in Scotland.
