Covid-19 Deaths

The request was successful.

Dear Grampian Health Board,
I am doing some research regarding Covid-19 Deaths, and As per the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

I would like you to supply me with the following information:

How many people have died in NHS Grampian Health Boards from Covid-19 alone? 
As in, they were admitted to hospital Due to Covid 19 and died only because of Covid 19 alone.

I can see the figures that you publish online, but these are the deaths recorded within 28 days of a positive covid test and also deaths with covid mentioned as a secondary cause or paitents having underlying conditions, so it is possible that they could have died from other causes other than Covid alone.

I would like to know the exact figure of Deaths from COVID 19 alone and not from any other reason or condition from 31st January 2020 until the present day, (Today's date- 19/12/21)

I look forward to your reply

Yours faithfully,
Mr J Macdonald

Dear Mr Macdonald

Thank you for your email advising that Miss Bains sent her email without the attachment. I now attach same. We had been experiencing considerable technical IT issues at the start of the week which affected our ability to process.
