Nicola Sturgeon will give another Covid update on Wednesday to Parliament as cases in Scotland continue to rise. 

It comes as Scotland reported over 7,000 cases on Monday, with the R number estimated between 1.3 and 1.6. 

During last week's update, the first minister urged people to comply with the measures still in place, as well as proposing the use of vaccine passports for certain events from the end of September. 

MSPs are due to vote on this on Thursday, with Labour, the Conservatives and LibDems expected to vote against the measure. 

Nicola Sturgeon also alluded to schools being back contributing to the rise in cases after Scottish schools returned weeks before those in England and Wales.
