Coronavirus (COVID-19) data and guidance

A current priority for Public Health Scotland is to support the management of the COVID-19 pandemic in Scotland with relevant and timely guidance and information.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) daily update of new reported cases (including historic cases) and deaths in Scotland

This dashboard is based on cases reported to Public Health Scotland by NHS Scotland and UK Government Regional Testing Centre laboratories and the number of deaths in individuals who were laboratory confirmed with coronavirus (COVID-19).

Data is provided at the level of Scotland, NHS Board and Local Authority with time trends. Additional age, sex and deprivation views are provided at the level of Scotland only.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) wider impacts to the health care system

This provides a high level overview of how the COVID-19 response is impacting more widely on health and health inequalities. The initial version focuses on hospital admissions, unscheduled care and volume of calls to NHS24. You can view the data presented by age, sex, deprivation quintile, specialty, elective versus emergency and by geographical location. Further data will be added as it becomes available and the dashboard will be updated weekly, aligned to the release of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) weekly report for Scotland.
