Of these deaths, 118 happened on 12 April and 537 were recorded between 1 April 11 April. The last 12 deaths took place last month to 26 March.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said restrictions will still continue, and there are “optimistic signs” the coronavirus lockdown is working.

A total of 6,067 people have now tested positive for the virus in Scotland, up 155 from 5,912 the day before.

There are 211 people in intensive care in Scotland, with symptoms or coronavirus, a fall of 10 from Sunday. 1,797 people are in hospital with confirmed or suspected with the virus.

Sturgeon said labs in the Tayside and Ayrshire and Arran health board areas have not reported testing figures from the last 24 hours. She added, the death figures are often lower after the weekend.

She said, “There are early optimistic signs that the steps we are taking are working but until we know more, until we have solid evidence, we must stick with it.”

The Department of Health will announce later on Monday the UK’s number of new cases.
