Covid-19: Universal credit £20 uplift ends, and ‘Covid toe’ explained – BBC News

Scotland’s first recognised Covid outbreak, which was traced to a Nike conference in Edinburgh, did not result in community transmission. A Public Health Scotland report found a single case among the 71 delegates led to 38 further infections, mostly among people at the conference. It was reported to Health Protection Scotland on 2 March last year, but only became public following a BBC investigation. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon later hit back at suggestions that the outbreak was covered up.
