Nicola Sturgeon shamed over delayed Aberdeen lockdown – ‘Not quick enough’ | UK | News (Reports)


Nicola Sturgeon on Wednesday announced Aberdeen would be forced to abide by stricter social distancing rules yet again after a resurgence of coronavirus cases in the area.

Ms Sturgeon ordered all bars and restaurants to shut down, and she reimposed a five-miles limit to travel around Aberdeer.

But Aberdeen Council co-leader Douglas Lumsden suggested the First Minister may not have acted “quickly enough” to contain the spike.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast, Mr Lumsden said: “I wrote to the First Minister early this week about concerns I have around track and trace.

“I’m not sure things were done quickly enough after the initial outbreak on July 26.

“It seems to be that bars people had been to hadn’t been notified yet and that is something I’m concerned about and that’s something I’ve raised with the Scottish Government.”
