The First Minister will be aware of recent Covid outbreaks in some care homes in Fife, where, very sadly, we have seen the deaths of some residents during the outbreak. The First Minister will also be aware of an increase in the number of schools linked to positive outbreaks in Fife. Can she clarify whether those developments have played a part in Fife remaining in level 3 and can she take this opportunity to reiterate the importance of maintaining social distance, of wearing face coverings and of avoiding crowded places, so that we can hopefully stem the transmission of the virus and avoid seeing Fife going up to level 4 next week or thereafter?
