Covid-19 deaths only

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Aneurin Bevan University Health Board should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Aneurin Bevan University Health Board,

Under the Freedom of Information act, I would like to know how many people have died in your hospitals from Covid-19 alone. I can see the figures that you publish online, but these are deaths within 28 days of a positive test, so they could have died from other causes. I just want to know the exact figure from 1st February 2000 until the present day, of people who have died due to Covid-19 and not anything else please.

Yours faithfully,

Matthew Dando

Dear Lucy Bennett (Aneurin Bevan UHB - Corporate Services),

Thank you for your reply in regards to my request. I see you have given a link to Public Health Wales, which gives a total of Covid 19 deaths. This however does not meet the criteria of the request, as I have asked for deaths from Covid 19 alone, and not a death which may have occurred within 28 days of a positive test.

I am requiring the number of people who have died from Covid 19 without any comorbidity, or from within 28 days of a positive test.

Yours sincerely,

Matthew Dando
