Dear Steven,

I am writing to notify you that the Department of Health (department) has
received your request for access to documents under the Freedom of
Information Act 1982 (Cth) (FOI Act) as follows:

“Requesting An Analytical Report On COVID‑19 Showing the Number Of Cases
and Deceased In Australia.”

 

Request for extension of time

 

The department is actively processing your request and is aiming to
finalise it as quickly as possible. However, the department is currently
experiencing an increased workload to manage and respond to the
coronavirus pandemic, with a large amount of resources being diverted to
do so. The content of your request means that any documents that exist
would sit with the line area who has responsibility for the department’s
continued response to the coronavirus.

 

On this basis, the department is seeking an extension of 30 calendar days,
with a decision to be provided to you no later than COB 25 May 2020.

 

Next Steps

 

Could you please advise the department by COB Monday, 30 March 2020 if
you agree to the request for extension of time?

 

Kind regards
