New figures show 521 deaths across Tayside and Fife have been linked to coronavirus since the beginning of the pandemic.
The latest National Records of Scotland (NRS) data reveals that as of Sunday, September 13 Covid-19 has been mentioned on the death certificates of a total of 4236 people in Scotland since the start of the outbreak.
Of this number, five were registered last week with one of the deaths recorded in Fife.
A regional breakdown shows that 317 Scottish Covid-19 deaths registered through the NRS measurement since the start of the pandemic were in Tayside and 204 in Fife.
Of the overall Tayside death toll: 170 were in Dundee, 76 were in Angus, and 71 were in Perth and Kinross.
The figures show 1,966 fatalities where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate occurred in care homes, 1,967 in hospitals, 296 in homes or non-institutional settings, and seven in other locations.
The five coronavirus deaths recorded through the NRS system last week are a rise on the two recorded the week before.
The NRS figures include all cases where Covid-19 is mentioned in a person’s death certificate and are distinct from the daily figures produced by Health Protection Scotland (HPS), which have so far included only individuals who have died within 28 days of testing positive for the virus.
This method recorded 4236 deaths in Scotland linked to Covid-19 as of September 13, compared to the 2,501 fatalities recorded by the HPS system at the time of publication.
