Nicola Sturgeon Urges Scots to Keep Following the Rules – ‘Covid will pass in a few months’

Scotlands First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has issued a hopeful rallying cry as she suggested the country could be over the worst of the pandemic within a ‘few months’.

The First Minister also urged Scots to follow the rules and stick together in the bid to subdue the coronavirus threat. While reminding the country that the clocks go back in the early hours of Sunday morning she admitted she wished she could skip ahead ‘a few months and be out of the Covid pandemic ‘.

Nicola Sturgeon also urged people to think carefully about how often they need to go to a pub or restaurant. During a Scottish government coronavirus briefing, she said images on social media of large gatherings with no physical distancing made her “want to cry”. Ms Sturgeon added that it was largely younger people who had been gathering with little or no distancing in place.
