THREE more people in Scotland have died after testing positive for coronavirus, doubling the total number killed by the virus in Scotland to six.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed the deaths at First Minister's Questions at the Scottish Parliament today (Thursday).

She also announced that there are now 266 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Scotland, up by 39 from yesterday.

The First Minister also said those figures were likely to be an underestimate of the total number of cases in the country.
