An interactive map, created by Public Health Scotland, allows the user to select any local authority and see the number of recent cases, as well as the rate per 100,000 population across a seven-day period.

The most recent figures show data collected on people tested between April 3 to April 9.

During that period, the Borders recorded four cases of coronavirus, giving the region a seven-day case rate of 3.5 per 100,000 – the second lowest in mainland Scotland.

Only the islands – all recording zero cases – and neighbouring Dumfries and Galloway recorded a lower positive case rate per 100,000 (2).

Clackmannanshire recorded the highest rate of coronavirus in Scotland during that period (102.8).
