Quantifiable Benefits of Gene Therapy

Chuck Schooner made this Official Information request to Chris Hipkins

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

From: Chuck Schooner

Dear Chris Hipkins,

Given the experimental gene therapy/vaccine does not prevent a person from getting Covid-19 or transmitting the virus please provide any and all documentation that confirms how

The Ministry of Health determine if the gene therapy is doing anything?
How does the Ministry of Health measure the results of this gene therapy?
What are the measurable benefits of this gene therapy and how are these determined?

The costs of the gene therapy are easily determined with over 130,000 reactions including death, abortion, heart conditions, potential future fertility problems for the innocent, strokes, paralysis. Please note vaccine adverse reactions are normally under reported by a multiple of four so I expect these numbers to be significantly higher. These are also short term so the long term could be even worse. There could be millions of people in New Zealand with long term health problems including our most vulnerable.

Please provide all benefits of this gene therapy and how they have been measured?

Yours faithfully,

Chuck Schooner
