Coronavirus (COVID-19): daily data for Scotland - 30 September 2021 -Almost 500 More Deaths In September
30th September 2021
The pandemic is far from over as shown by the figures showing deaths in the past few weeks. The number of people in hospital in Scotland is still very high. Those testing negative up until now may yet go on to catch the illness. The time for sitting on the fence regarding vaccinations is now well past as many in hospital have for one reason or another not been vaccinated. Younger people are increasingly affected as most older people have had two jabs and recover after being infected now which is very different from the start of the outbreak.
