NHS Borders has stopped sending regular updates to the media about the number of coronavirus patients being treated in hospital.

The health board started sending updates on March 31, but the practice has now ended.

A statement, issue today (June 22), reads: "With immediate effect the weekly email we have been issuing in relation to COVID-19 data will cease."

NHS Borders says statistics will continue to be published daily by the Scottish Government.

The updates from NHS Borders were originally issued every day, before changing to a weekly pattern.
