Public notice/report that PCR tests are withdrawn on CDC FDA advice

verifysp made this Freedom of Information request to Australian Communications and Media Authority as part of a batch sent to 10 authorities

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Australian Communications and Media Authority did not have the information requested.

Dear Australian Communications and Media Authority,
any report/advice/doc issued to advise public that the cdc recalled pcr tests as they are deemed unreliable to confirm sar-cov2 when cycled above 24 false positives of 50-80%

Below is the cdc/fda directive (links) I am referring to.

as such public advice or doc discussing such a report or statement should exist in the public sphere this request should not require a formal gipa form or any fee since such advice or reporting to the public would not require deep searching, and this informal request should suffice.
I am willing to accept no such disclosure exists but wish to be advised if a recommendation was made to another dept who would tell the public about the recall.

The FDA announced that the CDC's PCR test for COVID-19 "failed its full review" because it is "unable to differentiate between COVID and flu," resulting in the diagnostic tool's emergency use

Yours faithfully,


Freedom of Information, Australian Communications and Media Authority
