We’ve put together a collection of daily updated charts to track the coronavirus crisis in Scotland.
Use the links below to navigate to the data you are most interested in.
- Key statistics
- Vaccination status
- Local authority data
- Where are people catching Covid-19?
- Age demographics
The table below shows an at-a-glance view of the situation in each local authority. It shows new reported cases and deaths in the last day, as well as the total cases in each area since the pandemic began.
At this stage in the pandemic with the vaccination rollout well underway, the number of people in hospital becomes one of the most important metrics. The chart below shows the number of people in hospitals in each health board and Scotland as a whole with recently confirmed Covid-19
Covid-related deaths are another key way of measuring the pandemic. The chart below shows the daily number of deaths within 28 days of a positive test.
Whilst the number of cases are less relevant now that the link between cases and hospitalisations and deaths has been weakened, we continue to track the figures as the link has not been completely broken.
Related to cases is the positivity rate, which is a measure of how many of the people tested each day returned a positive result. Ideally this number should be under 5%, which is highlighted in green on the charts below.
A key figure to look at to balance the case figures are the number of people tested each day. You may often find that days with high numbers of new cases also show high testing levels. The chart below shows pillar one and two PCR tests.
The R value is a measure of transmission. To see a sustained reduction in infections the R value should be less than one. The chart below shows how the value has changed over time.
There is not currently a lot of available data on the key metrics by vaccination status, however we have collated the data that is available and will update as any further information is provided. The data below comes from the weekly Public Health Scotland report on the pandemic.
The chart below shows weekly data on acute Covid-related hospital admissions by the number of doses the patient had received.
Public Health Scotland have also analysed data on confirmed Covid-19 deaths since the start of the vaccination rollout. The data below shows the total number of deaths since December 29 2020, broken down by age range. Each icon represents five people.
Data is also available on the seven day case-rate by vaccination status. The chart below shows the difference between the rate in the unvaccinated population compared with people who have received both doses.
For more detailed data on the vaccination rollout, see our daily-updating vaccine tracker.
Local authority data
The charts below contain more detailed data at a local authority level. The first chart shows the seven day rate per 100,000 people of newly reported cases in each area. You can add up to four areas to the chart to compare.
Another important local metric is the positivity rate as shown in the chart below.
Where are people catching Covid-19?
Public Health Scotland provide weekly data on the locations people were in prior to their positive test.
The heatmaps below show daily data on the age ranges involved in both cases and deaths.
