Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has reintroduced some coronavirus restrictions on households in a bid to stop recent outbreaks from spiralling out of control.

Glasgow was one of three key areas pinpointed as a concern as health authorities recorded 66 new cases in the past 24 hours.

Ms Sturgeon said transmission of the virus was largely occurring between households.

She asked that from midnight on Wednesday, people in the Glasgow region refrain from hosting people from other households.

Entire households would be required to self-isolate for 14 days if a single member tests positive to the virus, while care home visits will be limited to the outdoors only.

The new restrictions are set to stay in place for two weeks.
