There have been no new confirmed cases of Covid-19 recorded in Fife in the past 24 hours, new figures show.
The latest update from the Scottish Government shows the total positive cases for the region since the outbreak began remains at 824, with 76 people receiving hospital treatment.
There has been seven new cases confirmed across Tayside since Saturday, taking the region’s total to 1,589. There are currently 23 patients with confirmed Covid-19 in hospital in the area.
A total of 87,660 people in Scotland have been tested through NHS labs to date. Of these, 73,123 were confirmed negative and 14,537 were positive.
The latest update also shows 2,103 patients who tested positive have died since the outbreak began.
The pilot, which is expected to last two weeks, will allow NHS Fife, NHS Lanarkshire and NHS Highland to test out the software which contact tracers will use to collect the information that they need digitally.
The Scottish Government said this builds on existing contact tracing technology in place across the NHS and will allow health boards to trace more contacts faster.
