Full version controlled source code for Covid19 Model

Currently waiting for a response from Imperial College London, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Imperial College London,

Question with respect to the COVID-19 model developed by the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis.

I am aware that a 'partial' git repository has been made available at

Unfortunately for accountability, this git repository is insufficient. Git version control gives a history of code changes, unfortunately, Imperial has intentionally released their code with no prior history.

For this, I refer to

The commit marked 'Squash history for public release'

The act of squashing takes all prior changes and merges them into one commit, hence removing all history.

I request that in the public interest and to ensure public trust, you release all prior history (unredacted/unsquashed) of the Covid19 model in a git repository.

Yours faithfully,

Sarjan Narwan
