FoI Req dated 2020 / 2021 asking in whole or part for evidence pure isolated sars-cov-2

We're waiting for verifysp to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Office of the Australian Information Commissioner,

Please make available all pdf doc requests FoI and the assoc decision doc in the 2 years dated 2020 & 2021 which specifically ask (in whole or in part of their scope) for evidence (ie proof: such as whitepapers, photos, video other media or documents) confirming the existence of a pure isolated sars-cov-2 virus. Alleged to cause Covid19

To further limit the scope of docs requested, the FOI requested docs should contain one (or more) of the caveat conditions below:
*Sample taken from a living human patient.
*Not contaminated with any other mammalian cell material.
*word 'Isolated' def is used in its normal meaning, not cell-cultured, not amplified (eg PCR) not sequenced or computer model or extrapolated. - but separated from everything else.

Please include pdf docs of requests & decisions made on them that fit the above criteria & scope entering by any channels, in addition to this website.

Please note this FOI Docs Request has been directed to your office intentionally as the overseer of the act and responsible for its transparency and execution of duties. I am requesting a finite number of docs and related decisions in a narrow scope, but I am not assuming the docs will come from 1 dept (eg Health), your mandate appears to address this issue of requests held in multiple depts.

Due to intense public interest in the overarching Pandemic I hope to receive a collection of PDFs with min delay. In advance, I am happy to have any PIN redacted out to maintain privacy on each pdf doc. I am not concerned who submitted each request, just the request wordings and decisions of each in turn.

Yours faithfully,

verifysp
