Death total exceeds 10,000
Data produced by the National Records of Scotland (NRS) shows 34 deaths relating to Covid-19 were registered between April 5 and 11, down four on the previous week.
Of the deaths recorded this week, 26 happened in hospital, five in care homes and three at home or in a non-institutional setting.
