Dear Public Health Scotland,

I understand that the coronavirus disease 2019 was listed as a notifiable disease and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 was listed notifiable organism on 22 February 2020.

https://www.legislation.gov.uk/asp/2008/...

I also understand that:

Doctors are legally required to notify the health board where they suspect the person, they are attending has COVID-19 and;

Directors of diagnostic laboratories are legally required to inform the health board and Common Services Agency where they have identified (SARS-CoV-2).

PHE publish weekly NOID's data for both the disease COVID-19 and the organism SARS-CoV-2, which can be accessed by the public at:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio...

Can you please direct me to where I can find the same data for Scotland? I have searched for it on the relevant websites and cannot seem to find anything.

Thank you in advance.

Yours faithfully,
Amanda Johnstone
