Coronavirus: University of Glasgow outbreak linked to mixing during freshers’ week


At least 124 students have tested positive at the University of Glasgow, and more than 500 are self-isolating.

The sharp rise in cases has been linked to new students arriving for freshers’ week, and rules around hygiene and social distancing not being followed as closely as they should be.

Sky News’ Dan Whitehead has visited some of the young people affected.
