Dear Mr Hewitt 
 
 
Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 
 
I refer to your e-mail received 2 July 2021, requesting: 
 
“Would it be possible to view the numbers of deaths, caused by Corona virus in 
Morayshire from 1/1/21 through to 30/6/21.” 
 
 
I can now respond as follows: 
 
Would it be possible to view the numbers of deaths, caused by Corona virus in 
Morayshire from 1/1/21 through to 30/6/21. 
There were16 deaths in Moray during 2021 where Covid (U07) has been listed as a cause 
of death on the death certificate.

in  relation  to  your  request,  and  you  have  a  right  to  appeal  to  the  Scottish  Information 
Commissioner.   
 
A  request  for  review  must  be  made  within  40  working  days  and  should,  in  the  first
