Dear Department of Health (Northern Ireland),
What information have you got on the pcr tests ability to know the difference between covid19 and any other coronaviruses?
What information have you got on why you test for coronavirus (flu, common cold covid19 etc) and not just covid19?
What information have you got about the false positive rates for the pcr tests? Testing positive for a coronavirus thats not covid19
What information have you got about the cycle rate of the pcr machines?
We have received your Freedom of Information request and I attach your acknowledgement letter and a Public Information Leaflet.
