Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland’s first minister, has called for the country to abide by the country’s rules to stop the spread of the virus amid growing cases.
A total of 714 people tested positive for coronavirus in Scotland’s largest daily newspaper.
The record came the same day, with Northern Ireland reporting its largest one-day increase in coronavirus cases, with the country’s health ministry reporting 311 new cases in the last 24 hours.
The ban on mixing indoors was extended earlier this week across Northern Ireland.
A total of 227,200 people in Scotland have tested positive for Covid-9 since the Scottish Government updated its national list on Saturday.
No new deaths were reported, which put the death toll at 2,511.
“This is our biggest daily case list so far,” Mess Starzion tweeted.
He said the country was testing more for the virus than in the spring and that new figures had been “influenced by university clusters”.
Hundreds of students have become self-isolated following the virus outbreak in Glasgow, Edinburgh Napier and other universities.
Ms Stargen said the new figures showed “absolutely no room for complacency” on Saturday, urging people to follow Scotland’s Covid-19 rules – without going to other people’s homes.
