From: Scott

Dear Ministry of Health,

Thank you for your response last week. I would like to make a follow-up request.

I would like to request copies of:

1) All COVID-19 Weekly Situation Updates, dated since 29 August
2) The latest COVID-19 disease indicator national quarterly summary report
3) The post-exercise report and action plan for the scenario planning exercise undertaken with the National COVID-19 Laboratory Testing Network (referred to in your initial response)
4) A copy of the “Delta variant work programme” referred to in your initial response

Finally, I would like to request, for every weekly or fortnightly reporting period since the beginning of August, the values for each of the 13 COVID-19 disease summary indicators. I note that a document recently published on the Ministry website:

https://www.health.govt.nz/system/files/...

states that summary reports since the beginning of August will only report on a subset of these indicators, and I take it that the report you told me would be published “within the next four weeks” of your initial response would only contain this partial data. I would like to highlight that my follow-up request is for the values of ‘all’ disease summary indicators.

Yours sincerely,

Scott
