The Scottish Government is currently working with a NHSGGC-led Incident Management Team and Health Protection Scotland (HPS) to provide support.

Those contacted are being advised to self-isolate and other identified contacts are being followed up and given appropriate advice.

The latest figures showed  there were 260 people in hospital a decrease of four and the number of people in intensive care remained at two.

The SNP leader added there had been no new admissions to ICU units since July 9.
