Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has tested positive for Covid-19.
Ms Sturgeon announced on Twitter she had been experiencing mild symptoms on Friday evening.
She said: “In line with Scottish government guidance, I’ll work from home over next few days, and hopefully be back out and about later next week.”
The Scottish leader’s annoucement follows her holding talks with Sinn Féin vice president Michelle O’Neill at her Bute House residence in Edinburgh.
It is believed this is the first time Ms Sturgeon has tested positive for the virus.
Ms Sturgeon had returned from a visit to the US this week spoke at the Brookings Institute about the global threat caused by climate change.
