The data published by Scotland Government shows the estimated number of infectious people in Scotland on 08 May to be around 35,000.
Scotland has been in lockdown since 23 March and did not make major changes to restrictions when they introduced in England earlier in May. The ministers of Scotland also believed that COVID-19 is spreading much more slowly than a few weeks ago. The statistics from Public Health Scotland(PHS) shows that the number of new infections has been steadily declined since from mid of April.
