Sars Covi-2

David Renwick made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for David Renwick to read a recent response and update the status.

From: David Renwick

Dear Ministry of Health,

Under the official Information Act, I am making a request for documentation (from the Minister/s) the Isolation of the SARS-COV-2 virus, certifiable evidence that this sample was isolated uncombined, free from other genetic material, in its purest form, identified and validated.

I ask that these documents show the virus has been isolated from a sample of an asymptomatic patient of COVID 19.

Please note that I am using "isolation" meaning the complete separation of the viral specimen and not simply a PCR test or cultured sample from a lab.

Yours faithfully,

David Renwick

Yours faithfully,

David Renwick
