EbeneInfo – GB – Covid in Scotland: more severe restrictions for three municipalities


css-14iz86j-BoldText {font-weight: bold;} Three areas of Scottish Council to face stricter coronavirus rules, fearing an increase in cases

Fife, Angus, Perth and Kinross will all upgrade from level two to level three in the Scottish five-level system

This means that pubs and restaurants in these areas will no longer be allowed to serve alcohol

But residents of Shetland, Orkney and the Western Isles will be able to find themselves at home with another household from Friday

Ms Sturgeon said the « necessary and precautionary » decision to move Fife, Perth and Kinross and Angus to level three from Friday was taken because cases in all three areas were on a « steep upward trajectory « 

The most recent data shows that within a week the number of cases per 100,000 population increased by 32% in Perth and Kinross, by 40% in Fife and by 47% in Angus

Medical experts had strongly recommended upgrading to level three, as they felt that level two might not be enough to reverse increases of this magnitude

The Prime Minister said: « I know it will be disappointing for residents and businesses in these areas

« However, by acting now, we can hopefully prevent an even more serious deterioration of the situation »
