  • COVID-19 infections among school pupils in Scotland

    • Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    The report presents the distribution of cases of COVID-19 across the pupil population in Scotland from 17 August to 18 October 2020, covering the period of Term 1 of the 2020 to 2021 school year. These data show the occurrence of COVID-19 cases in this population across the course of Term 1, and by area, and by school type. This does not reflect directly the measurement of COVID-19 incidents within schools, as not all pupil cases identified will have been present in school during their infectious period.

  • Enhanced Surveillance of COVID-19 in Scotland – Community Surveillance in Primary Care Settings

    • 11 November 2020
    • Statistical report
    • Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    The data presented in this report has been collected as part of the community surveillance programme in primary care, from a sample of 13,832 individuals so far since April 2020, provide insights into the characteristics of people with mild to moderate COVID-19 symptoms. Those without symptoms are excluded from the sample. The findings are from data collected in phases 1 and 2 of the programme which took place over twenty-six weeks, up until October 2020. Participants in the surveillance programme were recruited across all 14 Health Boards in Scotland and were those with mild to moderate symptoms, presenting to NHS24, who received a telephone consultation or were seen at a COVID-19 Community Assessment Centre (CAC) for a face-to-face consultation. A key finding is that the symptoms of cough and altered sense of taste/smell were associated with an increased odd of a positive test, followed by headache, diarrhoea and fatigue. There were no symptoms which were more likely to be associated with a positive test result in children and adolescents.
