Dear Simon Purvis, 

 

Thank you for your two requests dated 3 August 2020 under the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) requesting data related to deaths
in Scotland and the impact of COVID-19.  

 

We have received two requests from you on the same day, one we are
replying to and the other attached, which we received at 19:44 via
whatdotheyknow website. They seem to ask the same questions except one
additional question contained within the one I am replying to. Can you
please confirm whether you are happy for us to combine both under one FOI
request or can you let us know which of the two requests you would like us
to answer.

 

Yours sincerely,
