There were at least 23 positive cases of Covid-19 recorded across Caithness in the latest seven-day period recorded by Public Health Scotland.

The latest figures are based on people tested between June 29 and July 5.

The national agency's interactive dashboard has a map giving the number of positive cases in specific Scottish neighbourhoods, seven of which are in Caithness.

Caithness North West showed eight positive cases over the seven days, while Caithness North East, Wick South and Thurso West recorded four each. Thurso East had three cases over the seven days.

If a neighbourhood has fewer than three positive cases, the number is presented as 0-2 "to help protect patient confidentiality". Caithness South and Wick North each fell into this category, meaning there could have been zero, one or two positive cases in each.

There were a further 16 positive cases recorded across the three Sutherland neighbourhood areas.

In total, Public Health Scotland reported 615 positive cases in the Highland local authority area during the seven-day period. The region's seven-day positive rate per 100,000 population was 260.8.
