The ONS Covid infection survey estimates there were about 104,400 people infected on any given day in the week up to 28 August - that's about one in 50 people.

There were 30 Covid deaths in the same week, which is lower than the previous week.

A total of 15,622 people in Scotland have died with Covid since the outbreak began in March 2020.

Estimated cases of Covid-19
The ONS has been carrying out a Covid infection survey of randomly selected households in Scotland since September 2020.

Now mass testing has ended, it has become the best estimate of the extent of the coronavirus outbreak in Scotland.

How many people are in hospital?
The pandemic has created a huge load on Scotland's hospitals.

At the peak of the outbreak in spring 2020, there were more than 1,500 Covid patients in hospital, with more than 200 being treated in intensive care.

Numbers reduced over the summer of 2020, but started to rise steadily again in the autumn. In January 2021, the number of patients with Covid in hospital went above 2,000.

During the Omicron surge in cases in early 2022, the total number of patients with Covid surpassed the 2021 peak. However, the numbers being treated in intensive care are lower than they were early in the pandemic.
