The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “In full: Nicola Sturgeon halts lockdown roadmap for swathes of Scotland” – below is their description.
Covid-19 restrictions will be eased in parts of Scotland on Saturday, but much of the country will retain tougher measures due to spikes in cases of the virus, Nicola Sturgeon has said.
The First Minister updated MSPs in the Scottish Parliament on coronavirus restrictions.
She said parts of Scotland could move from Level 2 to Level 1 of the five tiers of restrictions, which run from 0-4.
But Edinburgh and Midlothian, Dundee, East Dunbartonshire, Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire, the three Ayrshire areas, North and South Lanarkshire and Clackmannanshire and Stirling will remain in Level 2.
Glasgow, which was kept in Level 3 when measures eased in the rest of the country on May 17, will move to Level 2 on Saturday, with Ms Sturgeon saying the outbreak there had stabilised with case numbers falling slightly.
Glaswegians will be able to drink alcohol indoors, meet in private residences, and hug loved ones from the weekend.
Those in Level 1 areas can meet outside and indoors in public places in larger groups.
Numbers at events, weddings and funerals can also increase, and pubs can open slightly later indoors.
Scotland currently has the highest rate of new cases of Covid-19 of the four nations of the UK.
