PEOPLE in Glasgow will be BANNED from meeting other households from midnight tonight after a huge spike in cases.
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed the news this evening, which will also apply to East Renfrewshire, and West Dunbartonshire.
66 new positive tests were recorded in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area today.
She chaired a resiliance meeting of her top team today to discuss the new outbreak.
“We could see the virus run out control again,” she told a press conference this evening.
“We have seen 314 new cases, and 135 of these have been in the Greater Glasgow area and Clyde area.
“If these numbers continue, then more people will fall ill from Covid and more people will go into hospital.”
The average rate of cases per 100,000 in Scotland is around ten, but in some areas is now more than 20, she said.
