Nicola Sturgeon warns pandemic is not over despite easing restrictions in Scotland

The Prime Minister’s comments come as Scotland’s coronavirus restrictions are set to be eased further this weekend as self-isolation requirements will be scrapped.

People will instead be asked to “stay at home” if they feel unwell, according to Scottish government guidelines.

New guidelines said those with symptoms no longer needed to have a PCR and mass testing would end from Saturday as testing sites close and contact tracing ends.

Speaking during a campaign visit to Barrowfield Community Center in Camlachie, Glasgow, Ms Sturgeon said: “This is not the end of the pandemic. I think we need to be clear that this virus is always with us.

“We are seeing in other parts of the world that this is still causing a lot of problems and case levels here in Scotland remain high. The pressure on the National Health Service is still significant.”

As of May 1, the Scottish Government has indicated that the symptoms of the virus are considered to be: a continuous cough; high temperature, fever or chills; loss or change in your normal sense of taste or smell; shortness of breath; unexplained fatigue, lack of energy; muscle aches or pains; unusual hunger; headache; sore throat, stuffy or runny nose; and diarrhoea, nausea or vomiting.
