The Department of Health is publishing a bank of evidence papers that have helped shape its response to Covid-19.

The documents, now available on the Department’s website, include reports from SAGE (Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies), weekly papers on the R number in Northern Ireland, and links to other expert assessments.

Also published are the slides made public by the Department each week, detailing the path being taken by the virus.

Chief Scientific Adviser Professor Ian Young said: “This evidence bank brings documents on key Covid-related issues together in the one place.

“It will be updated as appropriate and will help to inform public debate and discussion on Northern Ireland’s response to the pandemic.”
