Good to hear Nick. There’s lots for the health authorities to learn from this experience and their response to it and this data is very valuable.

Thanks Nick,

I'm a bit late to this but the link to the full interim report and graphics doesn't work for me - says the page no longer exists.

Hope you're well

Hi Jackie, thanks, am battling on, all a wearisome at times for us all at the moment I think. Hope the good weather comes back soon ;-)

I have a feeling there was a temporary redirect issue earlier or one of the sites were down. All seems OK now.

Let me know if you are still having problems
