Dear National Records of Scotland,

The report on deaths involving COVID-19 Week 44: 26th October - 1st November that can be viewed on the National Records of Scotland, surprisingly (or maybe unsurprisingly) does not seem to detail any "average" values for deaths but merely allude to the age demographics.

In the anticipation of Sturgeon and Leitch are blocking the NRS from releasing data on the age of deaths associated with COVID 19 (i.e. some deaths that have a “strong positive” that is determined at a “local level” by the rRT-PCR test that likely uses a synthetic RNA sequence as the reference standard and which would amplify DNA reverse transcribed from potentially thousands of corona virus RNA sequences) then this FOISA 2002 is submitted to get the NRS data out there and into the public domain.

What are the mean, median and mode ages of death involving COVID-19 that have been recorded for Week 44: 26th October - 1st November (n=167)?

Yours faithfully,

J Grove
