As of 29 June the Government has released minutes and papers, discussed at the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) and its sub-committees, up to SAGE 40 on 4 June. The release of documents will continue as soon as is reasonably practicable after each SAGE meeting throughout the COVID-19 emergency. The only scientific papers with any redactions will be ones where a national security or personal information issue exists, and these necessary redactions take time. These publications can be found at the following link:
