Hospital visiting in Scotland will restart from 26 April, the Scottish health secretary says, APA reports quoting BBC News.

Depending on the continued suppression of the virus, one visitor will be allowed per patient, Jeane Freeman told the coronavirus briefing in Edinburgh.

She says: "April 26 will not be a return to normal visiting, but it is I think an important step towards normality and will, I hope, be welcomed by health staff, by patients and by their loved ones."

More funding will also be made available for digital visitation, Freeman says but she did not confirm how much money this would equate to.
