The Scottish government is not considering further reducing Covid self-isolation periods, Health Secretary Humza Yousaf has said.

Let's start with SLOT ONLINE the gameplay. The graphics format of the game is also intermediate. Not very beautiful.

It came after Nadhim Zahawi, the UK government education secretary, backed dropping England's quarantine limit from seven days to five.

On Thursday the isolation period in Scotland was cut from 10 days to seven.

Mr Yousaf said ministers wanted to see the impact of that move before making any further decisions.

It came as another 7,561 new cases of Covid were reported in Scotland.

The latest daily statistics also reveal there were 1,382 Covid patients in hospital on Saturday, and 55 in intensive care - up from 48 on Friday.

Scotland was the last of the four nations to reduce the self-isolation period.

Under the new rules, people who test positive for Covid can leave isolation if they have no fever and record two negative lateral flow tests.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast, Mr Yousaf said it was a risky move to change the quarantine rules.

"It's not that there isn't a risk attached with going from 10 days to seven days, there is a risk," he said.

"It's just that we wanted time to consider whether or not we would, inadvertently, for example, accelerate the transmission of the virus by cutting that isolation period."

Mr Yousaf said the Scottish government intended to keep the matter under review.
