On Twitter, Ms Sturgeon said: “123 Covid cases reported today. The circumstances and any connections/patterns are being closely examined, and Test and Protect is working hard to break transmission chains.
“While the increase is of course a worry, it is important to note that the positivity rate remains below one per cent.”
The number of new cases was 0.7 per cent of those tested – the same as the day before.
