Dear Public Health England,

This is a request for information pursuant Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000.

Public Health England is obligated through the FOI Act and ought to be compliant with Public Accountability, Interest and Transparency doctrines to fulfil this request, particularly since a regulatory framework has been established to mitigate SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, presumably on an evidence basis.

1. Please disclose any recorded information proving that a SARS-CoV-2 virus exists in Nature.

2. Please disclose any recorded information proving that a COVID-19 disease exists in Nature and is proven to be caused by a SARS-CoV-2 virus.

3. Please disclose any recorded information that the Pfizer vaccine said to mitigate symptoms of a COVID-19 disease is proven safe and effective against a SARS-CoV-2 virus, or in simple terms, is proven to provide immunity against a purported SARS-CoV-2 viral infection.

4. Please disclose any recorded information demonstrating the evidence that a SARS-CoV-2 virus is capable of transmission causing COVID-19. Note: this requires evidence that an identifiable SARS-CoV-2 virus [nucleic acid particle] travelling through the air from a subject in aerosol or some other form and is caught or received by another subject who then goes on to suffer with COVID-19, the purported disease resultant or caused by a SARS-CoV-2 virus.

5. Please disclose any recorded information demonstrating the evidence that a SARS-CoV-2 virus is capable of spread, by being exhaled in sputum or other bodily fluid from a subject onto and retained on a surface [and the time period established for SARS-CoV-2 to remain as a living organism] so as to be collected or picked up by a second subject at any point within the recognised and proven timeframe.

6. Please disclose any recorded information proving that face coverings mitigate the transmission and spread of a SARS-CoV-2 virus.

7. Please disclose the proof that a RT-PCR, Rapid antigen test or any other test is capable of identifying a SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Note: Real micrographic imagery is to be accepted as fundamental proof. Computer generated imagery is not to be accepted as fundamental proof.

Yours faithfully,

P Newton
