Nicola Sturgeon: Cautious approach to Covid will continue in Scotland

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has refused to move away from taking a “cautious” approach to dealing with the pandemic after the Scottish Conservative leader claimed recent restrictions had been unnecessary.Ms Sturgeon told MSPs last week that the projection of 50,000 new coronavirus infections per day by mid-January had not been met, with spread limited to around 30,000 per day after restrictions on hospitality and large events were put in place in December.But Douglas Ross claimed the restrictions were not needed given the Omicron variant appears to be less severe than other strains.
