Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

Public Health Wales Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Public Health Wales,
All records in the possession , custody or control of Public Health Wales describing the the isolation of a SARS-COV-2 virus, directly from a sample taken from a diseased patient , where the patient sample was not first combined with any other source of genetic material (i.e. monkey kidney cells aka vero cells; liver cancer cells)

Please note that I am using "isolation" in the every-day sense of the word: the
act of separating a thing(s) from everything else. I am not requesting records
where "isolation of SARS-COV-2" refers instead to:
· the culturing of something, or
· the performance of an amplification test (i.e. a PCR test), or
· the sequencing of something.
To clarify, I am requesting all such records that are in the possession, custody
or control of Public Health Wales (for example:downloaded to a computer, printed
in hard copy, etc.).

Please also note that my request is not limited to records that were
authored by the PHW or that pertain to work done by the PHW. My request
includes any sort of record, for example (but not limited to) any published
peer-reviewed study that the NRC has downloaded or printed.
If any records match the above description of requested records and are
currently available to the public elsewhere, please provide enough
information about each record so that I may identify and access each
record with certainty (i.e. title, author(s), date, journal, where the public
may access it).”

Yours faithfully,

D HUGHES

Public Health Wales
