” We won’ t think twice to do that if we believe it’s essential for the cumulative safety and health and wellbeing of the population.”
Ms Sturgeon stated it was “not due to the fact that I wish to be enforcing these constraints, but it is due to the fact that the development we have actually made up until now in taking on COVID-19 is merely not ensured and it is not permanent”.
