Lockdown restrictions are to be reimposed across the Aberdeen area after 54 new cases emerged in a coronavirus cluster, Scotland‘s first minister Nicola Sturgeon has said.

Ms Sturgeon said that 191 contacts have been traced in relation to the cluster. She said that the rise in cases has contributed to a greater fear there was a “significant outbreak” in the city. As a result, restrictions will be reimposed in the Aberdeen City Council area.

A Home Affairs Committee has meanwhile concluded that the “inexplicable” failure to quarantine travellers to the UK fuelled the Covid-19 pandemic and led to unnecessary infections and deaths.
