‘Following Major Projects Canberra taking responsibility for the SPIRE projects on 1 July 2019, it has undertaken a number of consultations and meetings with the Garran Primary School (26 August 2019 and 6 November 2019), the Garran community (26 September 2019) and the Garran Residents’ Association (30 October 2019) to inform these groups of the SPIRE planning, preliminary sketch design and procurement. The ACT Government has also established a Local Community Reference Group to provide a formal mechanism for the community to provide comments and feedback in the planning and development of the project. During these consultations and meetings the community has conveyed a number of concerns to Major Projects Canberra, the ACT Government and the ACT Health Directorate. It is in the public interest for the community to know how their concerns have, or have not, resulted in any changes to the planning and design works undertaken to date. I would like a copy of all documents and instructions between Major Projects Canberra, the ACT Government and the ACT Health Directorate, and Silver Thomas Hanley since 1 July 2019 concerning the matters brought to the attention at these consultation meetings.’

Information Requested

I would like a copy of the documents I refer to below sent to the above address OR, if appropriate, to inspect them.

During 2009-2010 a multi-storey car park was erected at the Canberra Hospital. At that time a car park at the Garran Neighbourhood Oval [Garran, Block 9, Section 33 designated PRZ1: Urban Open Space] was enlarged to accommodate vehicles that would otherwise be parked on the Hospital campus. As part of the enlargement, the work involved the removal of two cricket pitches and associated nets. Subsequently, decisions were made:

  1. to reserve and restrict the enlarged car park for the exclusive use of Hospital staff during the construction of the multi-story car park, and
  2. following the completion of the multi-storey park at the Hospital, to continue to restrict the use of the enlarged car park at the Garran Oval for the exclusive use of Hospital staff.

I would like to access all documents (including relevant correspondence between Directorates) relating to these decisions.

Information Requested

I am writing to you on advice from the Australian Department of Health (the Department) to seek clarification on information requested in a Freedom of Information (FOI) request that was sent to the Department.

I am therefore writing to you to on initial advice by the Department of Health to confirm whether you do hold the information requested in the original request to the Department, as shown in attachment "FOI 1937" and pasted again below:

“All records in the possession, custody or control of The Department of Health describing the isolation of a SARS-COV-2 virus, directly from a sample taken from a diseased patient, where the patient sample was not first combined with any other source of genetic material (i.e. monkey kidney cells aka vero cells; lung cells from a lung cancer patient). Please note that I am using "isolation" in the every-day sense of the word: the act of separating a thing(s) from everything else. I am not requesting records where "isolation of SARS-COV-2" refers instead to:

  • the culturing of something,
  • or the performance of an amplification test (i.e. a PCR test),
  • or the sequencing of something.

also note that my request is not limited to records that were authored by The Department of Health or that pertain to work done by The Department of Health. My request includes any sort of record, for example (but not limited to) any published peer reviewed study that The Department of Health has downloaded or printed.”

Information Requested

This request relates to the “Public Health (Emergency) Declaration 2020”, its subsequent extensions and the directions made pursuant to it, by the Minister for Health and the Chief Health Officer since 16 March 2020.
A number of claims are made in, or can be reasonably inferred from, the declaration, directions and supporting material available online, which I am seeking material evidence for under this Freedom of Information request. I have summarised these claims in the points that follow (which are based on information published on the ACT government’s website):
1) That there is a novel coronavirus designated SARS-CoV-2 that has been reliably identified according to the scientific method.
2) That SARS-CoV-2 is the sole cause of a new coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), which is a distinct disease that is reliably differentiated from other diseases.
3) That COVID-19 presents a public health risk to the ACT community in general that exceeds the public health risk from other diseases in the community to date.
4) That people who are asymptomatic but diagnosed with COVID-19 spread the disease to others in a substantial enough way that merits concern.
5) That the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method and all of its derivatives are a reliable diagnostic test for whether a person has the SARS-CoV-2 virus and are infectious.
6) That the SARS-CoV-2 virus is transmitted from person to person in a manner that face masks prevent, and the benefits of face mask use outweigh any harms to the wearer in the short, medium and long term, and other harms to the public and the environment.
7) That testing, quarantining, limiting gatherings, social distancing, contact tracing, lock downs, border closures, travel restrictions, frequent hand sanitisation and vaccination using novel technologies are justified in the circumstances and that there are no other viable alternatives to better respond to the perceived risks posed.
8) That people who have had COVID-19 should still get a vaccine for COVID-19 as it will protect the person from getting COVID-19 again or passing it onto someone else.
9) That the COVID-19 vaccines currently available are safe and do not contain potential toxic ingredients or cause potential toxicity within the body.
It is in the public interest that material evidence is supplied to substantiate these claims as the broader community has patiently endured infringements to their rights for approximately 18 months without being able to truly ascertain whether there is justifiable cause. There have been additional impacts on local businesses and the local economy, which will have long standing consequences for the community, and must be well evidenced particularly if they are to continue.

The specific Freedom of Information request I am making is split into parts as follows in descending order of priority, which can be responded to separately according to the effort estimated and capacity of the ACT Health Directorate:
a) I request all decision support materials (e.g. briefing materials) in the possession, custody or control of the ACT Health Directorate, that were supplied to the Minister for Health to support their declaration and/or extension of a public health emergency and/or the chief health officer to support their consideration prior to issuance of a public health direction, describing the real world (i.e. not simulated, modelled or theorised) isolation and purification of the novel coronavirus designated SARS-CoV-2 from a diseased patient anywhere in the world, which evidences that the patient was infected by this isolated and purified novel coronavirus and that the disease they were suffering from was solely caused by this isolated and purified novel coronavirus.
b) I request all decision support materials (e.g. briefing materials) in the possession, custody or control of the ACT Health Directorate, that were supplied to the Minister for Health to support their declaration and/or extension of a public health emergency and/or the chief health officer to support their consideration prior to issuance of a public health direction, describing the public health risk to the ACT community in general, and also according to particular groups who may be more at risk than others, in relation to:
b.i. the infection fatality rate of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19, and also with reference to how this compares to seasonal Influenza and recorded Influenza outbreaks; and
b.ii. the estimated prevalence of natural immunity and robust immune responses for SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 from individuals that have been previously exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus and/or other viruses that enable cross-reactivity.
c) I request all records in the possession, custody or control of the ACT Health Directorate’s COVID-19 response areas, and the Pathology area of Canberra Health Services, describing the following in relation to testing and diagnosis for SARS-CoV-2 and/or COVID-19:
c.i. the diagnostic sensitivity and diagnostic specificity of each type of test used within the ACT;
c.ii. the cycle threshold that laboratories adhere to when using the PCR method on specimens, and whether this threshold has changed over time, and whether this threshold is different for different groups of people including but not limited to vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals;
c.iii. the known limitations and the estimated false positive rate of tests used within the ACT; and
c.iv. the clinical diagnostic criteria for differentiating a case of COVID-19 from a case of another disease with similar clinical characteristics, in conjunction with, and also in the absence of, a laboratory test result.
d) I request all decision support materials (e.g. briefing materials) in the possession, custody or control of the ACT Health Directorate, that were supplied to the Minister for Health to support their declaration and/or extension of a public health emergency and/or the chief health officer to support their consideration prior to issuance of a public health direction, describing the extent to which asymptomatic individuals have been a significant contributor in driving:
d.i. the spread of SARS-CoV-2; and
d.ii. the spread of any virus in any previous viral epidemic or pandemic.
e) I request all decision support materials (e.g. briefing materials) in the possession, custody or control of the ACT Health Directorate, that were supplied to the Minister for Health to support their declaration and/or extension of a public health emergency and/or the chief health officer to support their consideration prior to issuance of a public health direction, describing the real world (i.e. not simulated, modelled or theorised) effectiveness of cloth, surgical and respirator face mask use in the general community for preventing the contraction and transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus or any other Influenza or coronavirus, as well as the individual, societal and environmental harms that can occur from general community use of these face masks in the short, medium and long term.
f) I request all records in the possession, custody or control of the ACT Health Directorate’s COVID-19 response vaccination program areas describing the potential and/or known toxicity, including but not limited to reproductive toxicity and genotoxicity, of current COVID-19 vaccines and the same for their individual ingredients.
g) I request all records in the possession, custody or control of the ACT Health Directorate’s COVID-19 response vaccination program areas describing the absolute risk reduction from COVID-19 vaccination per type of vaccine for people who:
g.i. have never been diagnosed with COVID-19, covering risk reduction from disease, risk reduction from death, and risk reduction from transmission to others; and
g.ii. have recovered from COVID-19, covering risk reduction for recurrence of disease, risk reduction from death and risk reduction for transmission to others.
h) I request all decision support materials (e.g. briefing materials) in the possession, custody or control of the ACT Health Directorate, that were supplied to the Minister for Health to support their declaration and/or extension of a public health emergency and/or the chief health officer to support their consideration prior to issuance of a public health direction, describing the alternatives that have been considered to date to mitigate perceived risks to the ACT community from SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 in relation to:
h.i. focused protection of the most vulnerable groups;
h.ii. use of re-purposed medicines and supplements individually or in combination including but not limited to Hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin, Favipirivir, Fluvoxamine, Quercetin, Metformin, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, and Zinc either in prophylaxis or treatment; and
h.iii. promotion of dietary and lifestyle changes that can improve the immune system, including but not limited to reduced stress, exercise, a diet full of essential vitamins and minerals linked to a healthy immune system, and avoiding exposure to known toxins that can impair the immune system.

I refer to the recent TV interview on Sunrise where Prof Collignon makes some pretty big claims relating to COVID, he said "those that are unvaccinated are more of a risk to others..." and "at least 70% more chance that they will get it (COVID) than a vaccinated person", and that "if they get it, they tend to be sicker for longer"

So my request under the FOI act is as follows;

  1. The data you have relied on to make these claims mentioned above.
  2. Can you please share with me the scientific evidence you (ACT health and/or the Professor) have showing the existence and isolation of
    1. SARS-CoV-2 virus; and
    2. Delta variant; or
    3. Any other variant. And
    4.  
  3. The reduced efficacy in reference to any materials you have that show the efficacy of the vaccine/s and their overall performance.
  4. The evidence of how the vaccine targets all the variants at once, or if not, which variants and which vaccines people in Australia are getting to be protected from said variant.
