Nicola Sturgeon was referred to the UK Statistical Watch over concerns that figures about the spread of the virus between Scotland and the UK “may be seriously skewed”.

The minister told the Scottish Parliament on Thursday that the level of infection in the UK was “more than 20% higher than in Scotland,” according to this week’s Office of Statistics (ONS) figures.

However, Willie Rennie, MSP for the Liberal Democrats in Scotland, wrote to Sir David Norgrove, the head of the UK Statistical Office, about the use of statistics.

His party pointed to ONS figures of 1 in 20 infected in Scotland and the UK in the week ending January 15th.

The figure also indicates that the estimated average percentage of the population with Covid-19 in Scotland is 4.49%, while 5.47% is a difference of less than 1%.

A spokeswoman for the Scottish government said the figures used by the First Minister were correct and that Willie Rennie was mistaken.

In the letter, former leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats, Lenny, argued that the use of public health data should not be biased, biased or manipulated.

“The public has a right to always expect the Scottish government’s interpretation of the data to be strong,” he wrote.

“This is even more important when that data is used to justify and substantiate restrictions on their freedom and freedom under the use of emergency powers.

“Congress has given powers to ministers that would otherwise be unacceptable, so an investigation into how these powers are being used is essential.

“We must not jeopardize public confidence in these statistics. There should be no bias, spin or manipulation. However, I am concerned that these statistics may be seriously distorted.”
