Dear Richard Cooke

Subject: PAC Report – Test and Trace Update

I refer to the above subject. A copy of the report dated 21 October prepared by “Public Accounts Committee” [PAC] is attached hereto [LINK].

I have noted the content and recommendations to UK Government. I offer the following observations that may be helpful to PAC in its scrutiny and overview role.

The RT-PCR test – referred to in the report – has been found to be not fit for purpose; following an external peer review by a well respected group of 22 international virologists, microbiologists and related scientists [LINK]. They published a call for the scientific journal “Eurosurveillance” to retract the article by Dr Christian Drosten published 23 January 2020 titled “Detection of 2019 novel coronavirus {2019 – nCoV} by real-time RT-PCR [Eurosurveillance 25{8}2020]. The peer review revealed, inter alia, 10 major scientific flaws at the molecular and methodological level, and concluded that the test should not be used for the diagnosis of viral infection. The findings have subsequently been endorsed in court judgements. A chronology of recent litigation on this subject is set out in Annex 1 below.

The PAC refer to an eye-watering budget of £37 billion over two years for the test and trace programme. It remains unclear why important information regarding the invalidity of the RT-PCR test has not been drawn to the attention of Committee members by UK Government officials. The invalidity of the test undermines the entire UK Government Covid response strategy and policy.

I would be grateful if you could arrange to circulate this information to Committee members for their information in their scrutiny and overview role. I have attached hereto details of the external peer review. Thank you.

Annex 1
Evidence – Invalidity of RT-PCR test for diagnosis of Covid 19 infection

8 April 2021
In summary proceedings [Ref: 9F 148/21], the Weimar Family Court in Germany ruled on the subject of the RT-PCR test. The expert witness Prof. Dr. med Kappstein pointed out in her testimony that the RT-PCR test can only detect genetic material, but not whether the RNA originates from viruses that are capable of infection and thus capable of replication [i.e. capable of reproduction]. The expert witness Prof. Dr. rer. biol. hum. Kammerer confirmed, in her testimony on molecular biology, that a RT-PCR test – even if it is carried out correctly – cannot provide any information on whether a person is infected with an active pathogen or not. This is because the test cannot distinguish between “dead” matter, e.g. a completely harmless genome fragment of the body’s own immune system’s fight against a cold or flu [such genome fragments can still be found many months after the immune system has “dealt with” the problem] and “living” matter, i.e. a “fresh” virus capable of reproducing.

24 March 2021
The Vienna Administrative Court judgement VGW-103/048/3227/2021-2 ruled on a complaint filed by the Freedom Party of Austria [FPO] against what is considered a grossly illegal ban on a registered rally. In its ruling, the court rejected the Corona policy of the federal government. Citing internationally recognised experts, studies and the World Health Organisation, the court found that the Minister of Health, Anschober’s, disease definitions were wrong and that a RT-PCR test for Covid 19 diagnosis was unsuitable. The RT-PCR test is destroyed as a credible determinant of Covid illness. Antigen tests are also deemed not credible. Certified medical doctors alone are able to determine specific cases pf illness. The Vienna Administrative Court examined closely the basis for the Austrian federal government’s policy and found that definition of illness from the Ministry of Health alone is completely wrong and baseless. Confirmed Covid 19 “case” is defined 23 December 2020 as:
1]  Any person with detection of SARS-CoV-2 specific nucleic acid [RT-PCR test], regardless of clinical manifestation, or
2]  Any person with detection of SARS-CoV-2 specific antigen, who fulfils the clinical criteria, or
3]  Any person with detection of SARS-CoV-2 specific antigen, who fulfils the epidemiological criteria.
None of the three “confirmed cases” defined by the Minister of Health meet the requirements of the World Health Organisation [WHO] term “ill / infected person.” The sole reliance on the RT-PCR test [confirmed case 1] is rejected by the WHO. The Health Service of the City of Vienna uses the words “case numbers,” “test results,” “case incidence,” as well as “numbers of infections.” This jumbling of terms does not do justice to a scientific assessment of the epidemic situation. For the WHO, the decisive factor is the number of infection / illnesses and not the number of people tested positive or other “case numbers.” This is similar to a ruling made by a Portuguese appeals court in November 2020 that the tests are unreliable and that it is unlawful to quarantine people based on test result. The verdict can still be appealed to the Constitutional Court or an extraordinary appeal can be filed with the Administrative Court. 

15 December 2020
“Cease and Desist” papers served on Dr Christian Drosten regarding the fraudulent content of the “Corman – Drosten paper” on RT-PCR tests, by Dr Reiner Fuellmich [Dr in Law] who leads a team of international lawyers prosecuting global officials over Covid 19.

27 November 2020
A highly respected group of 22 international virologists, microbiologists and related scientists published a call for the scientific journal “Eurosurveillance” to retract the article by Dr Christian Drosten published 23 January 2020 titled “Detection of 2019 novel coronavirus {2019 – nCoV} by real-time RT-PCR [Eurosurveillance 25{8}2020]. The external peer review by the 22 scientists revealed, inter alia, 10 major scientific flaws at the molecular and methodological level, and concluded that the test should not be used for the diagnosis of viral infection. The following key findings were revealed.
1.  Qualitative Covid RT-PCR tests are incapable of distinguishing between the virus and remnants of viral fragments discarded by the immune system after successfully dispatching the virus.
2.  Qualitative Covid RT-PCR tests cannot be used diagnostically to determine who is infectious and who is not.
3.  Recommended Cycle Threshold [Ct] Values to determine a reasonable cut off point for who is likely infectious versus who is likely not infectious were curiously omitted.
4.  The products for the Qualitative Covid RT-PCR tests were never validated at the molecular level.
5.  The peer-review process for the Corman-Drosten paper lasted only two days. For reference, it is common practice for most published manuscripts to go through an extensive two-month [or longer] peer-review process.
6.  The Corman-Drosten authors had significant financial conflicts of interest that they did not disclose during the peer-review process.

11 November 2020
An appeal court in Portugal has ruled that the RT-PCR process is not a reliable test for SARS-CoV-2 [the purported cause of the Covid 19 disease]. The virus has not been isolated or identified with a compiled genome available, and therefore any enforced quarantine based on those test results is unlawful. Further, the ruling suggested that any forced quarantine applied to healthy people could be a violation of their fundamental right to liberty. Most importantly, the judges ruled that a single positive RT-PCR test result cannot be used as an effective diagnosis of infection.

Dear Customer Contact Team

Subject: Covid passes extended to Cinemas, theatres and concert halls from 15 November 2021

I refer to the announcement by the First Minister 29 October 2021 that the requirement for “Covid passes” will be extended to cinemas, theatres and concert halls from 15 November 2021 and that public houses, restaurants and cafes might also require passes if infection rates continue to rise.

The First Minister confirmed that approximately 2000 cases of a new and possibly more transmissible form of the delta variant had been identified in Wales. 

Following the announcement, I have received numerous requests for further information and clarification from businesses affected by the latest restrictions. Accordingly, I would be grateful if you could arrange to respond to the following 3-point enquiry. Can you please arrange to provide:

  1. Details of the new form of delta variant now identified in Wales, and
  2. A copy of the scientific evidence available to Welsh Government to support the decision to extend Covid passes to cinemas, theatres and concert halls from 15 November 2021.
  3. A “hyperlink” to the latest version of the new regulations that take effect in Wales from 15 November 2021.    

The information, now requested, will enable me to respond to enquires received from affected businesses in Wales. As the new restrictions take effect from 15 November, a prompt reply would be appreciated. Thank you.

Subject: Suspension of visitors to all hospitals in H D U H B area

I refer to the above subject and attach article published in Tivyside Advertiser 2 November 2021. [LINK]

I note the decision taken by the H D U H B to only allow visitors at hospitals in Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion in extenuating circumstances such as end of life and critical visits, due to a rise in Covid 19 case rates in the H D U H B area. Covid “case” rates are based on the results of RT-PCR tests.  The test has been found to be not fit for purpose by a highly respected group of 22 international virologists, microbiologists and related scientists. They published a call for the scientific journal “Eurosurveillance” to retract the article by Dr Christian Drosten published 23 January 2020 titled “Detection of 2019 novel coronavirus {2019 – nCoV} by real-time RT-PCR [Eurosurveillance 25{8}2020]. The external peer review revealed, inter alia, 10 major scientific flaws at the molecular and methodological level, and concluded that the test should not be used for the diagnosis of viral infection. The findings have subsequently been endorsed in recent court judgements, as outlined in Annex 1 below. The following documents are attached hereto as supporting evidence.

  1. Paper by “Corman-Drosten” published 23 January 2020. “Cease and Desist” papers were served on Dr Christian Drosten 15 December 2020 regarding the fraudulent content of the paper. [LINK]
  2. External Peer Review dated 27 November 2020. [LINL]

I would be grateful if the Board could urgently review the decision not to allow visitors to hospitals, taking into consideration the recent court judgements regarding the invalidity of the RT-PCR test for the diagnosis of viral infection. I take the view that important decisions should not be taken by the Board based on fraudulent test data and flawed health data / statistics.

I would be grateful if you could arrange to circulate this important information to all Board members. If you require additional information you are welcome to contact me at any time.

Dear David Lewis,

Subject: – Tesco Christmas Advertising – Covid 19 Passport

I refer to the above subject and note reference to “Covid 19 Passport” in your Christmas advertising campaign. Video footage is available at the following link:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=0P7QSCLtRwI

Tesco confirms that Santa could be quarantined if not vaccinated. You need to be aware that Covid experimental gene-editing therapies [also referred to as vaccines] have not been approved for use in the human population. In the UK, they have received temporary emergency authorisation under R.174 Human Medicines Regulations 2012. Trials are due to end in 2023. The latest official data available regarding vaccine adverse reactions, and deaths, following national roll-out is set out in Annex 1 below. Experimentation on human subject is a clear breach of the Nuremberg Code: a summary is set out in Annex 2 below.

I take the view that it is a matter for UK Government to issue factually correct information to the general public regarding the requirement to quarantine, and not a matter for Tesco in a Christmas advertising campaign.

I would therefore be grateful if you could provide me with details of your formal complaints process so that these matters can be examined in detail.

I look forward to your response at your earliest convenience. I reserve the right to refer this matter to UK Government departments / external stakeholders, as necessary, if issues can not be resolved through Tesco “internal complaints process“. Thank you.

Yours sincerely

Annex 1
Evidence – MHRA adverse reaction “yellow card” data
Covid 19 experimental gene-editing treatments [vaccine]

Data to 20 October 2021
AstraZeneca – total adverse reactions 835,086 – total deaths 1,107
Moderna – total adverse reactions 54,555 – total deaths 20
Pfizer – total adverse reactions 350,870 – total deaths 576
Unspecified – total adverse reactions 3,483 – total deaths 31
Total – total adverse reactions 1,243,994 – total deaths 1,734
It is estimated that, for various reasons,only 10% of serious reactions and between 3 and 4% of non-serious reactions are reported. The information provided above can therefore be adjusted accordingly.

Annex 2
Nuremberg Code

Well respected eminent members of the medical and scientific profession are now on record demanding an end to the roll-out of experimental unlicensed Covid 19 gene-editing treatments as the risks to the human population is considered to be too high. These doctors and scientists take the view that people should not be pressured to comply with taking an experimental unlicensed vaccine, with coercion implemented by government legislation or through policy directives by large private and public corporations, including airlines, employers, schools and other institutions. They argue that this type of assault on medical privacy is invasive, aggressive and unethical; and in contravention of the established “Nuremberg Code“, as set out below. The Nuremberg Code is the most important document in the history of the ethics of medical research. It serves as a blueprint for today’s principles that ensure the rights of subjects in medical research.

    1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment. The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.
    2. The experiment should be such as to yield fruitful results for the good of society; unprocurable by other methods or means of study, and not random and unnecessary in nature.
    3. The experiment should be so designed and based on the results of animal experimentation and a knowledge of the natural history of the disease or other problem under study that the anticipated results will justify the performance of the experiment.
    4. The experiment should be so conducted as to avoid all unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injury.
    5. No experiment should be conducted where there is a priori reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur; except, perhaps, in those experiments where the experimental physicians also serve as subjects.
    6. The degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by the experiment.
    7. Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote possibilities of injury, disability, or death.
    8. The experiment should be conducted only by scientifically qualified persons. The highest degree of skill and care should be required through all stages of the experiment of those who conduct or engage in the experiment.
    9. During the course of the experiment the human subject should be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end if he has reached the physical or mental state where continuation of the experiment seems to him to be impossible.
    1. During the course of the experiment the scientist in charge must be prepared to terminate the experiment at any stage, if he has probable cause to believe, in the exercise of the good faith, superior skill, and careful judgement required of him, that a continuation of the experiment is likely to result in injury, disability, or death to the experimental subject.

Dear Team Members

Subject:  Validation process for Covid 19 test kits in the private market

I refer to the Regulatory Impact Assessment [RIA] undertaken to support the “Medical Devices [Coronavirus Test Device Approvals] [Amendment] Regulations 2021“. A copy is attached hereto. I note from paragraph 78 – highlighted for your convenience – that new strains [variants] of  SARS-CoV-2 virus will require new test kits to be developed by the private sector and re-validated to ensure public confidence in the quality of the testing process. As the validation process is under the control of the Department for Health and Social Care [DHSC] I would be grateful if you could arrange to provide me with the following information.

I would be pleased to receive a copy of the guidance issued by DHSC to test kit manufacturers regarding the re-validation process when new SARS-CoV-2 variants – for example ” Delta variant” and “Omicron variant” – are detected in the UK.

If you require further clarification you are welcome to contact me at any time. I look forward to receiving the information at your convenience. Thank you.

Yours sincerely
