Dear PHE FOI,

As PHE is advising the UK Government on its Covid 19 response it seems strange not to hold such basic information as a total number of deaths were covid 19 is listed as the sole cause.

Yours sincerely,

Iain Ashton

Dear FOI,

Hi have found some of the information I needed on ONS here is link

https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationa...

The information in section 3.Deaths registered by age group was helpfully. I would still like the data or a link to the correct page that shows deaths separated by those who died with lots of pre existing/co morbidities and those who sadly died of Covid 19 with no other comorbidities or other contributing health problems.

Yours sincerely,

Iain Ashton
