Yesterday Nicola Sturgeon announced that large gatherings will be canceled on Monday in an attempt to delay the outbreak of the coronavirus.

At a press conference, the Prime Minister informed, “If you have symptoms suggestive of coronavirus, you need to self-isolate yourself at home for seven days or until the symptoms disappear.”

He was speaking after official data revealed that the number of Scots positive for Covid-19 has increased to 60, 10 of them in Glasgow.
