  • 1,526 Scottish Ambulance Service (SAS) attendances, of which 320 were for suspected COVID-19. SAS took 218 people to hospital with suspected COVID-19.

  • 429 (40%) adult care homes with a current case of suspected COVID-19 as at 28 April. (At least one resident in the care home has exhibited symptoms during the last 14 days.)

  • 554 (51%) adult care homes which have lodged at least one notification for suspected COVID-19 to the Care Inspectorate since the start of the epidemic. 367 of these care homes have reported more than one case of suspected COVID-19. 

  • 3,221 cumulative cases of suspected COVID-19 in care homes. This is an increase of 126 suspected cases on the previous day.

  • a total of 7,203 staff, or around 4.3% of the NHS workforce, reporting as absent due to a range of reasons related to COVID-19.

  • 2,583 inpatients have been discharged from hospital since the 5 March, who had been tested positive for COVID-19, up from yesterday’s total of 2,521.

  • 597 people delayed in hospital. This is 1,015 less than the baseline period (04/03 weekly return). An initial target to reduce delays by 400 by the end of March and a further target of reducing by a further 500 by the end of April have now been met.

  • 3,732 staff were reported as absent in adult care homes due to COVID-19, based on returns received from 708 (65%) adult care homes as at 21 April. Staff absent due to COVID-19 represents 10% of all adult care home staff (37,213) for whom a return was provided. The absence figures for NHS staff and care home staff are calculated in different ways and caution should be exercised in making comparisons.
