Dear Therapeutic Goods Administration,

I am requesting information under the freedom of information act.
The information I am requesting is related to the current PCR tests in use by state governments to test for Covid-19. As these tests are intrusive and invasive, millions of DNA samples have been taken unknowingly from Australian citizens under the guise of testing for Covid-19. I would like to know where this information and DNA profiling is stored, why it is stored and what the government is planning to do with this information.
You can email me on [email address]

Yours faithfully,

Chris Thanos

Information Act (FOI Act) to the following:

 

              The information I am requesting is related to the current
PCR tests in use by state governments to test for   Covid-19. As these

unknowingly      from Australian citizens under the guise of testing for
Covid-19. I would like to know where this information     and DNA
profiling is stored, why it is stored and what the government is planning

As your request refers to state governments, we advise that the request is
better suited for the State and Territory Health Departments to respond.
