Thirteen people die in Glasgow Care home within one week.
Staff within Burlington Care Home in Cranhill are closely monitoring the health of other people within the care home and have placed strict protocols.
All of those who have sadly died did have underlying health conditions having tested positive for coronavirus.
Two members of staff from the care home have tested positive and have been taken to hospital for treatment.
The Scottish Sun reported that tests had not been carried out at the care home and were only taking place if residents were admitted to hospital.
The Four Seasons Health Care spokeswoman said “With deep sadness, we can confirm that 13 residents at Burlington Care Home have passed away over the past seven days.
“Our condolences are with their families and we are providing them with our ongoing support during this difficult time.
“The passing of a loved one is always traumatic irrespective of the circumstances.
“Within the home, the focus of the team continues to be the ongoing care and protection of all our residents and our colleagues, two of whom are currently being treated for coronavirus.”
“In these exceptional circumstances, we are sincerely grateful for the dedication of our colleagues and can assure our residents and their families that we are putting all our resources and energy into supporting and protecting everyone in our homes,”
