Commenting on the imposition of new coronavirus guidance in Glasgow, East Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire, Scottish Greens Co-Leader and Glasgow MSP Patrick Harvie said: 

“Most people in Scotland have shown great commitment to achieving control of the virus, and understand that we must do everything possible to eliminate community transmission. But there is no reason for complacency. 

“I would urge everyone in the affected areas to remember how dangerous this virus is, and how important it is for us all to play our part in keeping one another safe. We can only avoid a more severe local lockdown if we act quickly to stop the virus from circulating in our communities.

“The Scottish Government must immediately make additional resources available to NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and all three local authorities to ensure that the new measures are communicated across the area and additional support can be provided to all those who require it.”
