Cases

This chart shows the number of new cases identified each day by specimen date (the day the test was conducted, rather than just the day it was reported). The most recent two days are incomplete, as not all tests conducted on these days have been reported yet. The figures shown for these incomplete days will increase in future updates.

 

The dotted line shows the 7-day average number of new daily cases, ignoring the most recent two days.

 

Up until the 5th of January 2022, a case was someone who tested positive for the virus on a PCR test. From the 6th of January onwards, someone who tests positive on a lateral flow test (LFD) is also counted as a new case. From the 1st of March 2022, reinfections are also counted (anyone who tests positive more than 90 days after their last positive test).

 

 

Deaths

This chart shows the number of new deaths occurring each day by date of death (the day the death occured, rather than just the day it was reported). The dotted line shows the 7-day average number of new daily deaths.

 

A death is someone who has died from any cause within 28 days of testing positive for the virus.

 

These figures stopped being updated on the 31st of May 2022.

This Week at a Glance

In the past week, 7,417 new vaccinations have been administered, which is a decrease from the previous weeks figure of 8,129. This was made up of 1,178 first doses, 3,605 second doses, 1,993 third doses, and 0,641 fourth doses.

In total, 80.7% of the entire Scottish population has had their first dose, 76.2% have a second dose, 64.5% have had a third dose, and 10.0% have had a fourth dose.

In the past week, 95,533 new tests were conducted, which is a decrease from the previous weeks figure of 103,105. From these, roughly 36% were from PCR tests, and 64% were from LFD tests.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, 17,329,338 PCR tests have been conducted in Scotland. The total number of LFD tests conducted is not available, as these were not recorded in the figures throughout 2020/2021. But since the beginning of 2022, we have conducted 10,811,483.

In the past week, 4,391 new cases were identified, which is a decrease from the previous weeks figure of 5,362. From these, 3,307 (75%) were first infections, and 1,084 (25%) were reinfections.

The total number of confirmed cases in Scotland is now at 2,083,741. This figure is made up of 1,946,509 first infections, and 137,232 reinfections. However, as not everyone who catches the virus is tested for it, this is likely to be a fairly significant undercount.
There are currently 903 people in hospital throughout Scotland who have recently tested positive for the virus, which is 125 fewer than this time last week.

From that 903 number, 8 are currently in ICU (with a stay of under 28 days), which is 3 fewer than than this time last week. There a further 2 people in ICU with a stay of more than 28 days.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, 12,389 people have died within 28 days of testing positive for the virus. If we also take into account deaths where no test was conducted, but the virus was still mentioned on the death certificate as a cause of death, then that figure is at least 15,491.

The figures showing the number of people who have died within 28 days of testing positive for the virus have not been updated since the 31st of May 2022. To see the latest trends in Covid-19 deaths, please visit the additional death data page here.

This chart is based on data from the weekly ONS infection survey. It provides an accurate estimate of the number of people in Scotland who have Covid-19 each week.

 

By randomly testing sections of the population and then using modelling, they are able to provide an estimate on how many people across Scotland currently have the virus. For more information about the data and how it all works, you can visit here.

 

The figures here should allow for us to more accurately track the prevalence of the virus across Scotland, as these figures will not be impacted by changes in testing. 

 

The lightly shaded area shows the 95% credible interval, meaning that it is very likely that the exact percentage of people who currently have Covid-19 is in that range somewhere. The thicker line shows the central estimate for that week.

 

If you hover over or select a week on the chart, the tooltip will tell you the exact figure for that week, in addition to the "1 in ..." figure. This chart will be updated once a week on Friday.

Daily Increases

This chart shows the number of new vaccinations administered each day, split by first, second, third, and fourth dose. It is based on the date when the vaccination was actually administered, and not just the date it was reported.

 

When someone who has been vaccinated passes away, or moves out of Scotland, they are removed from these figures. So you may see historical figures gradually decrease.

 

 

Total Coverage

This chart shows what percentage of Scotlands total population have had their first, second, third, and fourth doses of the vaccine, both in total and in the past week specifically. There is also a fourth bar, which shows Scotlands total population split by age range, just for reference. 

Daily Increases
Total Coverage

This chart shows the entire Scottish population, with each dot representing about 20,000 people. It shows those who have only had their first dose of the vaccine (yellow), those who have only had both doses (green), those who have had their third (and fourth) dose (blue), and those who are completely unvaccinated (grey).

 

It is worth noting that the 'unvaccinated' group also includes children under the age of 5, who are not currently eligible for the vaccine. There are around 260,000 children under the age of 5, which makes up 5% of the population (13 dots on the chart).

This chart shows the running total number of first, second, third, and fourth doses which had been administered on each day of the pandemic, and what percentage of the total population this covered.

 

When someone who has been vaccinated passes away, or moves out of Scotland, they are removed from these figures. So you may see historical figures gradually decrease.

 

You can hover over a specific day to see the figures for it in a popup! 

Total Coverage

This chart shows the total number of people in each age group who have had their first, second, and third dose of the vaccine. You can select an age group to see more specific figures for it. 

 

The coverage figures are calculated using the NRS mid-2020 population estimates. As these estimates aren't completely accurate, and vaccine uptake has been so high, it has resulted in the coverage figures for some age groups going beyond 100%. The true figure for these age groups is likely somewhere in the high 90s. 

 

When someone who has been vaccinated passes away, or moves out of Scotland, they are removed from these figures. So you may see some of the cumulative figures gradually decrease.

 

 

Past 7 Days

This chart shows the number of first, second, and third doses which have been administered in each age group over the past 7 days. You can deselect either 'First Doses', 'Second Doses'. or 'Third Doses', and it will show the figures for the remaining selection more clearly.

Total Coverage
This Week

This chart shows the number of vaccinations administered by type. In Scotland, we are currently administering Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and Moderna vaccines. 

 

You can use the top row of buttons to switch between the number of vaccinations administered in total since the start of the rollout, and the number administered in the past week alone. You can also use the bottom row of buttons to switch between total combined doses, first doses, second doses, third doses, and fourth doses. 

 

When someone who has been vaccinated passes away, or moves out of Scotland, they are removed from these figures. So you may see some of the cumulative figures gradually decrease.

This chart shows the number of covid hospital admissions in each age group. You can use the drop-down menu to view the number of new admissions this week, last week, and in total since the beginning of the pandemic. You can also switch between the actual figures, and the per 100k population figures. 

 

A covid hospital admission is someone who has either tested positive within the 14 days prior to admission, or has tested positive during their stay in hospital. 

Currently In Hospital

This chart shows the total number of people who are in hospital each day with covid, and also how many of these patients are in ICU. Someone is counted as a covid patient if they tested positive in the 14 days prior to their admission, or if they test positive during their stay in hospital. Patients stop being counted once they are discharged, or if they have been in hospital for longer than 28 days.

 

The decrease seen in September 2020 was because of a change in methodology.

 

 

New Admissions

This chart shows the number of people who are admitted into hospital (and ICU specifically) each day with covid. Someone is counted as a covid admission if they tested positive in the 14 days prior to their admission (or the 21 days prior to their ICU admission), or if they test positive during their stay in hospital. The figures here are based on the date of admission, and not just the reported date.

 

The figures for the most recent seven days will be incomplete due to missing data / reporting delays, and will increase in future updates. For this reason, they are not included in the 7-day average line.

Currently In Hospital
New Admissions

Cases

This chart shows the number of new cases each day by specimen date (the day the test was conducted, rather than just the day it was reported).

 

Each column shows the total number of new cases identified per day. The darker columns (mainly found in the most recent days) show the new cases that have been added to the chart since the last time it was updated. 

 

 

Deaths

This chart shows the number of new deaths each day by date of death (the day the death occured, rather than just the day it was reported).

 

Each column shows the total number of new deaths occurring per day. These figures have stopped being released on the 31st of May 2022.

Cases
Deaths

These charts shows the number of cases / deaths reported in each age group this week (for cases only), and in total. You can use the drop-down menu to switch between these, and also to switch between the actual figures and per 100k population figures.

 

The 'New This Week' figure is based on specimen date, and shows the number of new cases identified in the 7 days up to 6 days before today. For example, if today is the 20th of August, then it will show the number of cases found in the 7 days up to the 14th of August. The death data stopped being released on the 31st of May 2022.

 

The figures here might not match the national totals due to missing age data. Also, the figures are just released in these awkward age ranges, so unfortunately I can't change them to more even ranges!

Cases
Deaths

This chart shows the number of new tests conducted each day by specimen date (the day the test was conducted, rather than just the day the result was reported). For example, if someone takes a test on Wednesday, and the result is reported back on Friday, then that new test will be included in the figures on Friday as a 'new test reported'. However, the person actually took the test on Wednesday. So this chart helps us to see how many people are taking tests on each day more accurately!

 

The figures are split by test type, and you can deselect either by selecting it on the legend. Up until the 5th of January 2022, the chart is just showing PCR tests. But after this date, Lateral Flow Tests (LFDs) begin to be included in the figures, which explains the sudden increase around this time. Later in 2022 testing became more restricted, as most people became ineligible to receive free tests from the government. 

 

The dotted line shows the 7-day average number of new daily tests conducted (the combined total of both PCR and LFD tests); however, it ignores the most recent 2 days, as tests conducted on these days won't all have been reported yet, and therefore the figures shown are likely to be an undercount which will increase further in the next update.

 

This chart is based on specimen date, and shows the number of new cases identified over the past 7 days in each age group, per 100k population.

 

You can use the buttons to switch between a view of the past 30 days or 90 days, and use the search bar at the top to view one or more age ranges in more detail. Also, the figures are just released in these awkward age ranges, so unfortunately I can't change them to more even ranges!

This chart shows the trend of cases, deaths, hospital/ICU admissions, tests, and the percentage of the population estimated to currently have Covid-19 throughout the course of the entire pandemic. The data is based on specimen date, date of death, and date of admission, so the figures here accurately reflect what was going on at each point of the pandemic.

 

Each metric is shown on its own scale, so they are not directly comparable to each other in that sense, however, they can be compared to each other to see how the relationship between each metric changed over the course of the pandemic. For each metric the '100%' mark is set at the peak in January 2021. For example, if we were having 50 deaths a day at the peak in January 2021, this would be the 100% level.. then if we started to have 200 deaths a day later in the pandemic, this would be shown at the 400% level, and if we started to have 25 deaths a day, this would be shown at the 50% level. 

 

This should let us see how things changed after that January 2021 as a result of the vaccine rollout. For example, at the peak of the second wave in January 2021, we were averaging around 2,300 new cases and 60 new deaths a day. In August 2021 another wave hit, and we peaked at around 6500 cases a day (almost triple (300%) of the January 2021 peak). If nothing changed, then during that wave we would also have expected to see almost triple the deaths we saw in January 2021, which would be around 180 deaths a day. Thankfully the successful rollout of the vaccine meant that this was not the case, and the relationship between cases and deaths/hospitalisations was much weaker! At the peak of the August 2021 wave, we were seeing around 23 deaths a day.

 

You can add/remove metrics by selecting them on the legend. Also, you can hover over a specific day on the chart to see more detailed figures for each metric that day. The death data here stopped being updated on the 31st of May 2022.

F.A.Q

Me! I’m John, a 27-year-old student and Cat lover at the University of the Highlands and Islands (Argyll College). I started tracking the Scottish Coronavirus (COVID-19) data in a spreadsheet out of interest, which eventually led to me making this page. 

Rather than buying a new domain to host it, I just added it to my ‘Travelling Tabby’ website. This is a travel blog, and has absolutely nothing to do with the Coronavirus. But still, feel free to look around if you want! (although there isn’t much on the blog, as most of my free time since the start of 2020 has been spent on this page)

If you need to contact me, you can use the contact form on this page, or email me at [email protected]. I will respond when I can, but I’m pretty busy right now and get a lot of emails, so replies may take a while!

Loads! Here are some of them:

UK Coronavirus Tracker – Another page by me, keeping track of all the UK  and worldwide data (with lots of national/regional comparisons included)

Argyll Coronavirus Tracker – Yet another page by me, keeping track of all the case data in the intermediate zones of Argyll & Bute / Arran

Worldometers – Worldwide Data in an easy table format

WHO – Worldwide Data with an attractive design

Our World in Data – A large website with heaps of data on the pandemic across the world

NYT – Great for USA Data

Public Health Scotland – The official Scottish dashboard, with some additional figures on there 

The Courier – Another page keeping track of all the Scottish data, with some additional visualizations included (and their separate vaccination page here is especially nice!)

UK Government – The official UK dashboard, with some additional figures on there (their interactive map here is especially nice)

Covidvax.live – Worldwide vaccine tracker in real time

Covid-19 Risk – A neat website that lets you calculate the level of risk involved in attending an event in your area, based on recent case rates

ZOE – An app that allows users to report Covid-19 symptoms, and from that, estimates the current prevalence of the virus across the UK

Yeah! I routinely post different types of charts and comparisons on Twitter!

Also, here is a link to the spreadsheet I useFeel free to download a copy. It is a bit of a mess, but it could be useful if you were looking for some raw data. 

Here is a list of all the official pages involving Coronavirus figures for Scotland (that I know of):

ScotGov – Daily headline figures on cases, deaths, testing, hospital occupancy, and vaccinations 

PHS Dashboard – Daily figures going into the above in more detail, including local figures, demographics, and detailed vaccination figures 

NRS Weekly Report – A weekly report looking at deaths by an alternative death count. Also includes extra information, like excess deaths, location of death, more detailed ages of death. Once a month a very detailed report comes out, looking at factors such as deprivation, pre-existing conditions, and so forth.

PHS Weekly Report – A weekly report looking at a whole range of things, including lateral flow tests, cases in children, contact tracing, quarantining stats, lateral flow tests, community testing, and cases by profession.

PHS Weekly Dashboard – A dashboard that is updated once a week, consisting of data included in the PHS weekly report above. 

PHS Wider Impacts Dashboard – A dashboard looking at a range of general health factors and how the pandemic has impacted them (primarily through comparisons to previous years). Such as total hospital appointments, A&E attendances, cancer diagnoses, and much more.

PHS Education Dashboard – A weekly dashboard looking at cases, testing, and hospital admissions in children and those working in the education sector. 

ScotGov Impact Dashboard – A weekly dashboard looking at covids impact throughout society. Includes stuff like public opinion polls, school attendance, crime rates, unemployment rate, and more. 

ScotGov Modelling the Pandemic – A weekly report which provides an update of the current R number, and covers other areas relating to the current prevalence of the virus in Scotland. 

UK Gov – A page looking at the UK covid wide data, but a lot of it shows each nation separately. 

ONS Weekly Infection Survey – A weekly report that looks at covid rates throughout the UK (which includes a section Scotland specifically), and estimates the total number of people who currently have the virus. 

ONS Monthly Long Covid Study – A monthly report that looks at the prevalence of Long Covid throughout the UK. 

ONS Additional Insights – A weekly dashboard that keeps track of various metrics across the UK, such as cases, hospitalizations, vaccinations, antibodies, well-being, lifestyle, work, and more.

COG-UK – A neat website that keeps track of which variants of the virus which are currently active throughout the UK.

SEPA Wastewater Dashboard – A dashboard that analyses wastewater samples across Scotland and tracks how many traces of Covid-19 are being found in them.  

Sorry!

One issue might be that you’re using Firefox. This browser seems to break the page for a lot of people, and I have no idea what is causing it. My only suggestion would be to try viewing the page on another browser, as it just seems to be Firefox which has issues, on a range of devices.

If things in general aren’t updating, then it might just be that the page your browser is showing you hasn’t updated to show the most recent version. This seems to be an issue for only some people, for whatever reason. But if you view the page in private/incognito mode, then the issue should go away. 

It’s a WordPress site, built with Elementor. That covers most of the page, but all the graphs/charts/tables are embedded from a range of different places! 

These are Datawrapper, Flourish, and Everviz. The Datawrapper and Flourish charts will mention their name in the footer, and if there’s no mention, it is an Everviz chart. Oh, and the non Datawrapper maps are made with MapSVG!

I’d be happy to answer any other questions about it, but it is quite simple. I’m not really any good at programming/automation, and I’m new to all of this, so it is mostly just a lot of copying/pasting to get the website updated daily.  

Additional Information / Clarifications

When someone tests positive in Scotland, the case is assigned to a council area based on their postcode. If there’s no postcode available for this person (either because they are not a resident, or because the information is missing), then this case will not be assigned to any council area.

It will still be included in the national total, just not in any council area. As a result, the council area totals won’t sum to match the national total. For example, we might see 100 new cases reported throughout Scotland, but only 98 new cases reported when you sum up the individual council areas. Suggesting that for 2 cases, no postcode data is available. 

To make things more confusing, I think postcodes can be assigned at a later date, which results in the council area having an ‘increase’, which actually happened weeks ago. Again using the above example, we might see Scotland report 100 new cases in a day, but there are 102 new cases reported when you sum up the individual council areas. Suggesting that postcode data was found for 2 old cases, and then they were added to the council area totals. 

So if you see the council area cases not matching the nationwide totals, then this will probably be why!

Most of the charts on this page will have their source linked directly underneath them. But still, here is a list of all the main sources used on this page: 

PHS Open Data – The data files here are where I get the bulk of the data on this page from. That includes all of the cases, deaths (within 28 days), and hospital figures.

PHS Vaccination Data – The data files here are where I get all of the vaccination data from. Including figures by age group, council area, and vaccine type. 

PHS Weekly Report – This is where I get the data on hospital admissions by age group. 

NRS Weekly Report – This is where I get the death certificate deaths for the additional death data page, and also the excess death figures. The deaths by age group figures are included in the ‘related statistics’ page, and I personally get them from the “Weekly deaths by sex and age group in NHS health boards, 2020 and 2021” sheet. The deaths by intermediate zone data are also released here, but only once a month. Go to the archive page to see the previous releases of the monthly report on it.

ONS Infection Survey – The data here is used for the ‘Percentage of People who Currently Have Covid-19’ chart. It is also used for any of the data showing how many people currently have covid (like the ‘1 in …’) figures.

NRS Population Estimate – This has the population figures for Scotland, including age groups and council areas. 

I think that covers all of it! A lot of the figures on the page aren’t included in these sources, as I just work it out myself (stuff like the percentage change from last week). But if you need help finding anything else, just send me a message I’d be happy to help! 

Below are some of the frequently requested additions for the page, with an explanation as to why they are not currently available: 

R Number
The R number was on this page before, however, it was removed at the start of 2022. The reason for this is that the ‘latest’ R number released lags behind 2-3 weeks. So we could have been in a situation where cases were rising rapidly, yet the R number was still sitting at 0.8 – 0.9, reflecting the situation a few weeks before.

It wasn’t very useful in that regard, and was actually quite misleading too. The R number is still released once a week though, and the best place to view the time series of it is on the UK Gov Dashboard here.

Excess Deaths
There are some excess death figures available on my Additional Death Data page here!

Cases / Hospital Admissions / Deaths by Vaccination Status
This data used to be available, but it is no longer released by PHS. Although, the UKHSA does release some data for England each week, which you can view in their reports here.

Deaths by Pre Existing Condition
There isn’t too much data released about this, so I can’t really add anything to the page for it. The best available would be in the monthly NRS death reports here.

The reports there are released once a week, but then once a month (normally around the mid point of the month), the weekly report will contain a lot of additional data in it, including some figures on deaths by pre-existing condition, occupation, and lots more. Try viewing the ‘archive’ link on the page and you’ll see the larger reports occurring once a month. 

If you are looking for additional death figures, they will probably be in there.

As just about all of the data on this page comes from PHS, I would recommend looking at the notes section on their dashboard here to see exactly what is included in each metric.

Additionally, on most charts you can click the header, and a drop down will appear that gives some more specific information about what it shows.

I aim to update this page every Thursday for 3pm. Although unfortunately, this isn’t always possible due to data not being released on time, or something else in my life taking priority.

But it is updated by 3pm or shortly after most of the time! If a delay or more than 10-15 minutes is expected, I will put out a tweet to let people know.

On public holidays, the amount of data being released can vary, so the page will only be partially updated, or potentially not updated at all. I’ll include a header banner on this page to let people know when/if that is occurring.

Most of the data is released from PHS on Wednesday, however, I do my updates on Thursday, as that allows me to include the NRS death data at the same time. Then on Friday, I also add in the ONS Infection Survey Data.
