2. a reference to the authority and research used to justify the CT setting being used,
3. the world Health Organisation statement supporting this CT setting which has been adopted by Queensland Health,
4. the body, foundation, company or business allocated to collect and or test these PCR tests,
5. how or where these PCR tests are processed to determine the results,
