Nicola Sturgeon coronavirus update RECAP as Scotland to meet vaccine targets despite supply shortages

Nicola Sturgeon has announced that seven people have passed away after testing positive for coronavirus.

In the last 24 hours there has been 624 new cases which brings the total number to 211,854 since the start of the pandemic in March.

The First Minister addressed the vaccine situation with fears production issues could hamper the jab programme in Scotland.

Reduced vaccine supplies could slow the easing of lockdown restrictions, an expert has warned, after health officials said volumes for first doses will be “significantly constrained” from the end of March.

Cabinet Minister Robert Jenrick said: “We have learned from some of our manufacturers that there are going to be some supply issues in the last few days.

“A number of global manufacturers are experiencing issues.”

Pressed if the issue was vaccine coming from India, he said: “It’s not that there’s any one factory responsible for this or any one country.”
