Stats for covid infection cases, hospitalisations and deaths of teachers

RosieD made this Freedom of Information request to Office for National Statistics

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

We're waiting for RosieD to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Office for National Statistics,

4 days ago the BBC published an article citing your stats and stating: Teachers 'not at higher risk' of death than average. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-55795608

Please can you :
a) provide the data for deaths and infection cases from September 2020 to December 2020 (this should be possible as the data set from you used in the BBC article is from March 2020-December 2020.
b) Explain why your original data set published was from March - December 2020 when during that time period schools in England were only open fully for approx 12 weeks (Sep-Dec)?
c) Provide data on the risk of death from C19 for female teachers in secondary sector?
d) Provide data on the risks for teachers of long covid compared to other professions?

Yours faithfully,

Rosie Kelly-Smith
