Dear Department of Health,

This is a formal request for access to general records, made under Canada’s Access to Information Act.

Description of Requested Records:

All studies and/or reports in the possession, custody or control of the National Research Council (NRC) describing the purification (i.e. via filtration and ultra-centrifugation and chromatography) of any “COVID-19 virus” (aka “SARS-COV-2”, including any alleged “variants” i.e. “B.1.1.7”, “B.1.351”, “P.1”) directly from a sample taken from a diseased human, where the patient sample was not first combined with any other source of genetic material (i.e. monkey kidney cells aka Vero cells; fetal bovine serum).

Please note that I am not requesting studies/reports where researchers failed to purify the suspected “virus” (separate the alleged “virus” from everything thing else in the patient sample) and instead:

cultured an unpurified sample or other unpurified substance, and/or
performed an amplification test (i.e. a PCR test) on the total RNA from a patient sample or from a cell culture, or on genetic material from any unpurified substance, and/or
fabricated a genome based on PCR-detected sequences in the total RNA from a patient sample or from a cell culture or from any unpurified substance, and/or
produced electron microscopy images of unpurified things in a cell culture.
Clarification of Request

For further clarity, please note I am already aware that according to virus theory a “virus” requires host cells in order to replicate, and I am not requesting records describing the replication of a “virus” without host cells.

Further, I am not requesting private patient information, or records that describe a suspected “virus” floating in a vacuum; I am simply requesting records that describe its purification (separation from everything else in the patient sample, as per standard laboratory practices for the purification of other very small things).

Please note that my request includes any study/report matching the above description, for example (but not limited to) any published peer-reviewed study authored by anyone, anywhere.

If any records match the above description of requested records and are currently available in the public domain, please provide enough information about each record so that I may identify and access each one with certainty (i.e. title, author(s), date, journal, where the public may access it). Please provide URLs where possible.
