Team Sturgeon and the Riddle of Scotland's Covid Figures
Covid in Scotland: Percent infected (ONS survey) now up five weeks in a row. Falling in other UK nations. Scotland hospital cases up. ICU still below 20.— Chris Musson (@ChrisMusson) March 7, 2022

Scottish Ministers are only interested in comparative Covid figures if they show Scotland in a better light than other parts of the UK.
But it would be good to have a sensible discussion about why Scotland's cases are increasing so rapidly even though we have allegedly tougher Covid restrictions, eg compulsory mask wearing, still in place.
Same thing happened in August/September 2021 when Scotland became the Covid capital of Europe, yet Team Sturgeon shies away from asking tough questions and finding an explanation to this riddle.
