Seventeen people were in intensive care, no change on the day before.

So far 3,531,461 people have received the first dose of a Covid vaccination and 2,470,181 have received their second dose.

However, the Scottish Government said that Public Health Scotland experienced IT issues which had an impact on the extraction of vaccination data on June 15.

It said Tuesday’s figures may be an underestimate, and any missing data will be reported in tomorrow’s figures.

A total of 248,515 people have now tested positive for the virus since the start of the pandemic.
