Scotland’s first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, has been quarantined after being identified as a close contact with anyone with Covid-19.
She said she would self-quarantine until the results of the PCR test were available.
Under coronavirus rules, double-vaccinated adults and all children can avoid self-isolation if they are in close contact with the coronavirus, as long as they are asymptomatic and have a negative PCR test. ..
The Prime Minister received a second dose of coronavirus vaccine in June.
Ms. Sturgeon tweeted on Sunday evening.
“Therefore, follow the rules and self-quarantine until you get the results of the PCR test.
“Thanks to all the contact tracers who work hard at NHS Test & Protect.”
According to Scottish government statistics released on Sunday, Scotland recorded a new coronavirus case, with 7,113 positive for the first time.
The number of hospitalized patients who have recently been confirmed to be infected with coronavirus has also increased for the ninth consecutive day, reaching 507, and 52 are receiving intensive care.
Previously, Ms Sturgeon urged people to follow their health advice and take wise precautions to keep themselves and others safe.
She tweeted. “In Scotland we see an increasing curve of cases.
“It is encouraging that the vaccine prevents the level of serious health damage that such a number of cases would have caused in the past.
“But we can’t be satisfied and we are watching closely.
“In the meantime, be careful.”
