The number of cases linked to a Covid-hit chicken factory has risen to 152.
NHS Tayside confirmed positive test results from 134 of the 900 factory workers at the 2 Sisters plant in Coupar Angus, plus 18 community contacts.
It is an increase from the 110 cases reported on Sunday evening.
Dr Emma Fletcher, Associate Director of Public Health for NHS Tayside, said: “Today’s increase in positive cases was anticipated by the team managing the outbreak as the high volume of contact tracing, which was under way over the weekend, has now been largely complete.
“We are seeing fewer, new cases today for follow-up, however detailed contact tracing continues and we remain in a high state of vigilance across Tayside.”
She added: “At the Mobile Testing Units sited across Tayside over the past week, nearly 3,500 tests have been completed. At the two units in Coupar Angus and Dundee which were set up for workers from the 2 Sisters factory, more than 1,000 tests have been carried out.”
All workers and their household contacts, including children, have been told to stay indoors until August 31, even if they have had a negative result.
