Dear Scottish Government,

In accordance with this foi request made to Scottish Government 596 people had died in Scotland of covid only, between of 3/3/2020 till 1/2/2021

https://www.gov.scot/publications/foi-20...

I would like to request the following information for the same period of 3/3/2020 till 1/2/2021
1)How many people had died in Scotland in total, from all things, not only covid.
2) Please provide a breakdown of these total deaths into each type or category of reason for death. Ie, 596 died of covid,
The number who died of cancer, the number who of dementia etc etc

I am unable to access the reports on the NRS website as I don't have the correct technology to do so and as the Scottish Government held this information regarding covid only deaths you should hold the information I'm requesting also.

Yours faithfully,

Miss G Simpson

Dear Scottish Government,

Thank you for providing the information I requested.

Can you also please provide these same statistis for the previous 10 years. I understand these statistics wouldn't include covid 19 but would be grateful if you can include in the breakdown, those who died of influenza flu for these years, and those who died with influenza as an underlying health condition, in the same way you have recorded covid deaths.

Yours faithfully,

Miss G Simpson
