    The “my concerns” link seems to be broken.

    Seems to be working now. I think it was a problem with my browser settings rather than the link. Apologies for my error.

    no problem – there is an error in the piece which I hope has been fixed now – After the campaign rates were 97 per 100,000 in the control group versus 112 in the INTERVENTION group
