Thank you for your request which I received on 16 January 2022, following our request for clarification you confirmed that you were asking for the following:
Any information that was officially withheld or marked not for disclosure that describes covid death statistics or prediction of covid deaths.
The Welsh Government does not hold the information requested. All COVID-19 death statistics have been regularly published.
The Office for National Statistics publish weekly provisional counts of the number of deaths registered in Wales, these are available at the link below. These include the most up-to-date figures available for deaths involving COVID-19.https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/datasets/weeklyprovisionalfiguresondeathsregisteredinenglandandwales
Covid-19 modelling, including modelling of Covid-19 deaths has been published by the Technical Advisory Cell.

You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
