Dear Lee Odams, 
 
Request under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) 
 
Thank you for your request of 17 August 2020 under the Freedom of Information 
(Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA). 
 
Your request 
You asked for “Coronavirus deaths recorded during this current Pandemic recorded 
in Scotland by job sector” and noted a specific interest in bus workers.  
 
Response to your request  
The information you have requested is available from page 22 of this report 
https://www.nrscotland.gov.uk/files/statistics/covid19/covid-deaths-report-week-
32.pdf 
and table S7 of the accompanying spreadsheet  
https://www.nrscotland.gov.uk/files//statistics/covid19/covid-deaths-extra-tables-
week-32.xlsx 
 
Bus workers would come under the category “82 – transport and mobile machine 
drivers and operatives” in table S7. It is not possible to break this analysis down into 
more detailed occupations because of the small numbers involved. 
 
Under section 25(1) of FOISA, we do not have to provide you with information if it is 
already reasonably accessible to you.  
 
Your right to request a review 
If you are unhappy with this response to your FOI request, you may ask us to carry 
out an internal review of the response, by writing to:

Your review request should explain why you are dissatisfied with this response, and 
should be made within 40 working days from the date when you received this letter.  
We will complete the review and tell you the result, within 20 working days from the 
date when we receive your review request.   
 
If you are not satisfied with the result of the review, you then have the right to appeal 
to the Scottish Information Commissioner.  More detailed information on your rights 
is available on the Commissioner’s website at:
