Nicola Sturgeon outlines Scotland’s ‘test, trace and isolate’ approach for suppressing coronavirus

In order to successfully track and trace cases in Scotland, Ms Sturgeon stated that testing capacity will need to be 15,500 per day and will require 2,000 contract tracers.

Members of the public who are found to have contracted the virus will be required to undergo seven days of self-isolation, with “close contacts” also forced to stay indoors for 14 days.
