Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Cabinet Office should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Cabinet Office,

Data from the World Integrated Trade Solution (WITS) show that in 2017 and 2018 the UK bought COVID-19 Test kits with the code 300215 and 902780 as Medical Diagnostic Test instruments, e.g. “COVID-19 Test kits (300215) exports by country in 2017. Additional Product information - Diagnostic reagents based on immunological reactions – Category: COVID-19 Test kits/ Instruments, apparatus used in Diagnostic Testing” -
• “In 2017, Top importers of COVID-19 Test kits are European Union ($17,131,541.68K , 2,759,970 Kg), Germany ($8,731,545.89K , 3,015,010 Kg), United States ($7,927,894.38K , 2,627,050 Kg), United Kingdom ($6,291,366.96K , 1,062,590 Kg)”
• The in 2018 sold Medical Test kits/ Instruments, apparatus used in Diagnostic Testing are now classified by the World Customs Organization as critical to tackling COVID-19: under HS Code 902780: HS Classification Reference based on Covid-19 medical supplies list 2nd edition, prepared by World Customs Organization (WCO) and WHO. Reporter Trade Flow Product Code Product Description -Trade Value 1000USD Quantity Unit-
United Kingdom Export 902780 Medical Diagnostic Test instruments and apparatus 453,206.36

Please will you provide of above mention purchases; the records, including:
1. The names of those involved in said purchase of test kits (code 300215 and 902780);

It will be interesting to know whether these "test kits" are the sampling materials (e.g. swabs), the serum antibody test kits or the test kits for the real time reverse transcriptase chain reaction (rRT-PCR) test that does not use a purified virus as the reference standard but rather a synthetic RNA sequence (e.g. N Gene; Genbank accession: MN908947.2 as described in The Centre for Disease Control reports).

Dear FOI Team Mailbox,
It is not creditable that the UK Govt and its Cabinet has no record of these purchases: Whereas:
*The WITS recorded that is it was the UK Govt. who bought the test kits in 2017/18. Be it that it was Matt Hancock (prior part of DHSC) who since these years prepared Covid19; as via his meetings with Bill Gates at Davos. One has to assume that he did record his negotiations and purchases to the Govt.
*The ‘European Ted’ record that it is the UK Govt. who for the MHRA will pay for the Artificial Intelligence (AI) software tool to process the expected high volume of Covid-19 vaccine Adverse Drug Reaction.
*The £75 million purchase of antibody tests from Abingdon Health; the Govt suppressed an official report that proved there were issues with rapid antibody tests purchased by DHSC; and the Govt is still refusing to fully disclose this info to the public.

I will put the same Question of FOI 202015044 to DHSC: Yet is is likely they too will eschew in one way or another their accountability.

Yours sincerely,
Bartholomeus Lakeman

Perhaps one of the members of parliament who participate in the ‘China Research Group' could assist in the understanding of this purchase.
The ‘China Research Group' comprises Tom Tugendhat MP, Neil O’Brien MP, Dehenna Davison MP, Anthony Browne MP, Laura Trott MP, Kevin Hollinrake MP, Alicia Kearns MP, Andrew Bowie MP and Damian Green MP.
The mainstream media news today has Tom Tugendhat MP speculating that people will not be allowed back into offices and pubs until they are vaccinated.
There can now be no doubt that the UK’s leadership are part of the process to vaccinate the entire population (as desired by Gates and Fauci) against a “disease” with an average age of death around the mean age of death pre-COVID and that this has been in the planning stages for many years.

Dear Cabinet Office,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Cabinet Office's handling of my FOI request 'COVID-19 Test kits purchases in 2017/18'.
Pursuing my email and request for an internal review of 14 Nov- 2020 (left unanswered). That it is not creditable that the UK Govt and its Cabinet members have no record of purchasing the Covid-19 test kits in 2017/18: Whereas said purchase fits in with the following data:
The World Integrated Trade Solution (WITS) data show that WHO members states (including the UK) ordered in 2018 Covid-19 Test kits named “Diagnostic reagents based on immunological reactions” with the HS code 300215 and 902780.
In 2018, Zhengli Shi and co published to have generated a chimeric CoVs virus; attaching a sequence coding for a spike protein that attaches to human ACE2 receptors.
On 24/01/19, after a WHO meeting at Davos, as part of pandemic preparation the USA introduced its Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act HR 748) (a version of UK Corona Act 2020).
On 24/01/20, in a meeting at Davos the WHO told its member states to buy the RT-PCR tests to confirm a Covid-19 case (which was prior the SARS CoV-2 virus scientific test data was reviewed).
In Feb. 2020, Shi Zhengli and colleagues published a paper with SARS CoV-2 virus’s partial genome, and so did Bruno Coutard and co, who mentioned its novel supercharged site CGGCGG and he commented that this “may provide a gain-of-function” capability to the virus, “for efficient spreading” to humans.
Late July 2020, Zhengli Shi, the leading CoV researcher from WIV (Wuhan), in an email interview asserted the renaming of the RaTG13 (Covid-19 virus) sample and declared that the full sequencing of RaTG13 has been carried out as far back as in 2018 and not after the SARS‐CoV‐2 outbreak. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/article...
On 03/03/20, the WHO director-general Tedros A. Ghebreyesus tweeted "Globally, about 3.4% [CFR] of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% [IFR] of those infected" [however, in general the CFR is about 10 to 20 x higher than its IFR].
On 11/03/2020 when there were, outside China, 83 Covid-19 cases; the WHO declared its pandemic. On 19/03/20, when there were, outside China, on a population of 6,4 billion 44,000 cases (IFR of 0.0000007) WHO member states authorised their versions of the Corona Act and they provided to those who might cause (and benefit from) the injuries under this Act; a harmless clausal.
In March/April 2020 the UK Govt told to the public that there will be a will be a new normal.

Yet, if the Govt had not endorsed with said PCR tests its tale that asymptomatic people transmit the virus: then peoples’ collective belief that Covid-19 is such a threat that anyone should (under the Corona Act) sacrifice his/her basic rights; peoples’ collective acceptance of the Covid-19 threat implies to accept its vaccination: these would not have occurred.
Peoples’ collective obedience’s to accept their collective injury (due to the Corona Act) and the Covid19 vaccines: was only possible if these were well prepared. The WHO member states and the UK started this preparedness plan years prior the official SARS-CoV-2 outbreak in Wuhan; even prior 2018.
