Seeking scientific evidence of a virus that causes disease

D J Blair made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Ministry of Health should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: D J Blair

Dear Ministry of Health,

Please provide empirical scientific proof that social distancing is in any way effective against any virus (which is inate, not living)
The isolation we suffer is not self imposed as fines and arrest are threatened, it is house arrest by definition.
The current procedure which is mandatory and fines will be imposed if not followed would suggest that until now the government has been highly neglegent in failing to protect us from HIV and AIDS.
Also killer viruses but no serious measures implemented by the state.

Only one of the two scenarios above can be correct so my question is:

Has it ever been scientifically proven that any virus has caused any disease?
Please provide evidence.

My evidence shows that a virus is the result of disease, not the cause.

Yours faithfully,

D J Blair
