From: Ramola Dharmaraj

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Request for all Scientific White Papers, Reports, Studies Related to

1) the Isolation of SARS-COV-2 Virus/COVID-19 Virus in human beings and
2) the Isolation of SARS-COV-2 Virus/COVID-19 Virus, “Delta Variant” in human beings
directly from a sample taken from a labeled COVID-Diseased or COVID-Dead Patient (diseased or dead only due to SARS-COV-2 Virus/COVID-19 Virus or Delta Variant of SARS-COV-2 Virus/COVID-19 Virus), where the sample was not first combined in any way with any other genetic material, and where the Patient did not have any other disease such as Pneumonia, Influenza, etc;
3) the Inducement of the COVID-19 disease in a healthy person using this Isolate of the SARS-COV-2 Virus/COVID-19 Virus proving Koch's postulates of Disease Transmission;
4) the Inducement of the COVID-19 disease in a healthy person using this Isolate of the “Delta Variant” of the SARS-COV-2 Virus/COVID-19 Virus proving Koch's postulates of Disease Transmission;

and forming the basis for all ill-advised restrictions and advisories--particularly regarding public transport, masking and vaccines in schools and colleges--previously made, being made, or planned by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, the Massachusetts Governor, the CDC, and the US Dept of Health and Human Services citing the Existence of a Virus, a Variant, a Pandemic, and a Public Health Emergency.

Clarification 1: This is a request for full disclosure of all scientific studies, reports, and white papers related to the isolation of the SARS-COV-2/COVID-19 virus and Delta Variant in human beings, which form the Proof of Virus, Proof of Pandemic, and Reason for Use/Basis used for all the questionable “Public Health” “mandates” “guidances” “advisories” and “requirements” issuing forth from the Massachusetts Dept of Public Health, the Governor's office, and the CDC, for wearing hazardous health-destroying masks, feudally directing human behavior in distancing six feet, and coercing the taking of an experimental and deadly mRNA vaccine (Which has now been recorded, as of August 3, 2021 by the CDC, EudraVigilance, MHRA Yellow Card Scheme and other Vaccine Adverse Reactions Databases to have now jointly caused 35,227 DEATHS and 3,679,601 INJURIES ( as reported to CDC VAERS (USA) through to July 23, 2021, to EudraVigilance (which covers 27 countries only in the EU reporting to the EU EMA EudraVigilance) through to July 31, 2021, and to the Yellow Card System (U.K.) through to July 21, 2021.”--Sources:

CDC: 11,940 DEAD 618,648 Injuries and 1,175 Unborn Babies DEAD Following COVID-19 Shots/Health Impact News, August 1, 2021;

20,595 DEAD 1.9 Million Injured (50% SERIOUS) Reported in European Union’s Database of Adverse Drug Reactions for COVID-19 Shots/Health Impact News, August 3, 2021)

Clarification 2: Isolate means “to separate something from other things with which it is connected or mixed”--Cambridge Dictionary definition.

Clarification 3: This request is not for information on something procured by means of
1) Culturing something,
2) Nasally swabbing something from any randomly sick (with some other disease) or healthy person,
3) Amplifying something via PCR Test (Which its inventor Dr. Kary Mullis has clearly stated is not to be used to diagnose any disease),
4) the Sequencing of something,
5) or the Computer-Generated Sequencing of something.

This is a media request--Information received will be published immediately at Ramola D Reports broadcast channels and at The Everyday Concerned CItizen, print media site and magazine--and so a waiver of any fee is requested.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Ramola Dharmaraj

Copying here, my response to the email from Bruno Viana, CDC, this morning, with a clarification of my request:

Dear Bruno Viana,

Thank you very much for your response below, which I have perused carefully, and the web links to papers and databases; however they do not answer my request.

You have stated "SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Active infection with SARS-CoV-2 is detected by diagnostic tests. Currently there are two types of diagnostic tests – molecular tests that detect the virus's genetic material and antigen tests that detect specific proteins on the surface of the virus. For current data showing the total number of SARS-CoV-2-positive cases and deaths, visit the CDC COVID-19 Data Tracker, which shows cases and deaths in the United States broken down by state and county, daily trends in the number of cases by state, and other parameters."

I am not seeking information on diagnostic tests at all whether molecular tests or antigen tests. I am not seeking information on numbers of positive cases or deaths. I am not seeking information on any samples from people with pneumonia.. I am not seeking information on electron microscopy images of lung and upper respiratory tissues. I am seeking information on the isolation of the SARS-COV-2 virus which you (CDC) say causes COVID-19, on the pure isolate of this virus taken from someone you (CDC) recognize as afflicted with this disease, someone labelled as diseased or dead from this specific virus.

To more fully clarify and rephrase and emphasize the intent of my request, which a medical microbiologist has helped me rephrase accurately:
I am requesting that you locate and deliver ANY records, research and/or findings-- for ANY "viral" isolation and purification (by anyone, anywhere, anytime in the World) from a patient sample via maceration, filtration and/or the use of an ultracentrifuge or what is called the 'Gold Standard' for isolating and identifying a pathological micro or nano organism. The 'Gold Standard' for isolating and identifying microbes is referred to as Koch's and Rivers Postulates which was established many years ago.

I am requesting all studies and/or reports in the possession, custody or control of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and/or the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) describing the purification of any “COVID-19 virus” (including “8.1.1.7, “8.1.351”, “P.1” and any other “variant”} {via maceration, filtration and use of an ultracentrifuge; also referred to at times by some people as “isolation”), 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” and instead: * cultured an unpurified sample or other unpurified substance, and/or * performed an amplification test (i.e. a PCR test) on all the RNA from a patient sample or from a cell culture, or on genetic material from any unpurified substance, and/or * sequenced 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.

I trust I have clarified my request. I look forward to receiving your information.

Thanks very much for your attention.

Sincerely,
Ramola D

Copying here, my confirmatory response sent by email today to Bruno Viana in response to my Clarification of Request above, with his email response below mine:

Subject: Confirming CDC Response that CDC Has No Information on A Purified Isolate of SARS-COV-2 by Koch's Postulates/RE: Clarification of Request/Re: Response to FOIA Request HQ-REF-21-00145

Dear Bruno Viana,

Thank you for your updated response.

To confirm what you relay that CDC Program Staff have stated:

"The responses below address the isolation of the virus from the diseased host, which requires growth in cell culture. Viruses do not replicate outside of a host or in a pure culture (devoid of other cells). Koch’s postulates were formed prior to the identification of viruses as the causative agents of some diseases and also pre-date modern microbiological techniques, including the ability to isolate viruses from hosts. As such, Koch’s postulates have limitations when evaluating viruses and do not adequately account for the way viruses are isolated and propagated given that viruses are obligate intracellular parasites."

To confirm what your response to my request for information is therefore:

1) You are unable to provide me information describing the purification and isolation of any “COVID-19 virus” (including “8.1.1.7, “8.1.351”, “P.1” and any other “variant”) (via maceration, filtration and use of an ultracentrifuge; also referred to at times by some people as “isolation”), 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).

2) You state that isolation of the virus from the diseased host requires growth in cell culture, that Koch's postulates are limited, that modern microbiological techniques offer a superior "ability to isolate viruses from hosts"--but you do not spell out what these modern microbiology techniques are which permit "the isolation of viruses from hosts" and you do not provide me white papers on such isolation.

Please note that your earlier responses, which I addressed, and which are restated below, do not spell out these modern microbiology techniques either--there is no information in your previous or current response on the isolation and purification of any specific virus from a diseased human host, which is the information I seek. The methodologies described in the paper " Pathology and Pathogenesis..." cited (which are centered on detection of virus and examination of tissues) do not describe isolation of a virus from a diseased or dead human afflicted solely with the professed SARS-COV-2. The diagnostic tests mentioned below used to detect the professed SARS-COV-2 whether molecular tests or antigen tests do not address the isolation of SARS-COV-2. Numbers of positive cases or deaths do not address this basic issue of a pure isolate of the virus supposedly causing these deaths. I am not seeking information on any samples from people with pneumonia--extracting samples from people with pneumonia and then imputing SARS-COV-2 to them doesn't make any sense. (The paper you reference--"Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 from Patient with Coronavirus Disease, United States" opens "A novel coronavirus, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has been identified as the source of a pneumonia outbreak in Wuhan, China, in late 2019.") I am not seeking information on electron microscopy images of lung and upper respiratory tissues--the ones you point to in that paper "Pathology and pathogenesis..." do not prove the existence of any specific virus, and do not prove the etiology of causation of tissue damage--which could have been caused by Graphene Oxide from a Sanofi-Pasteur flu vaccine (as recently reported from Spain) or its equivalent, by electromagnetic radiation, or some other means. What is it exactly that you are calling SARS-COV-2--is there a photograph, an electron micrograph, a pure isolate of this thing we can all look at? I am simply seeking information on the isolation of the SARS-COV-2 virus which you (CDC) say causes COVID-19, on the pure isolate of this virus taken from someone you (CDC) recognize as afflicted with this disease, someone labelled as diseased or dead from this specific virus.

3) The statement your staff make here that isolation of a virus requires growth in cell culture and that Koch's postulates are outdated and inadequate I understand is a highly controversial one; Koch's postulates as described in the Statement of Virus Isolation (SOVI) by Dr. Andy Kaufman, Dr. Thomas Cowan, and Sally Fallon Morell as the classic standard in virology do not call for cell culture growth for isolation of putative viruses but call for maceration, filtering, and centrifuging to identify distinct and repeating particles of organic matter with a distinct genomic sequence that can be named the virus.

I refer you to their SOVI, which points out the fallacy of current-day virology in using a cell culture filled with toxins and other cells to supposedly isolate a virus, and notes that proper electron microscopy and proper genome extraction and sequencing is not done: “... since 1954, virologists have taken unpurified samples from a relatively few people, often less than ten, with a similar disease. They then minimally process this sample and inoculate this unpurified sample onto tissue culture containing usually four to six other types of material — all of which contain identical genetic material as to what is called a “virus.” The tissue culture is starved and poisoned and naturally disintegrates into many types of particles, some of which contain genetic material. Against all common sense, logic, use of the English language and scientific integrity, this process is called “virus isolation.” This brew containing fragments of genetic material from many sources is then subjected to genetic analysis, which then creates in a computer-simulation process the alleged sequence of the alleged virus, a so called in silico genome. At no time is an actual virus confirmed by electron microscopy. At no time is a genome extracted and sequenced from an actual virus. This is scientific fraud.

The observation that the unpurified specimen — inoculated onto tissue culture along with toxic antibiotics, bovine fetal tissue, amniotic fluid and other tissues — destroys the kidney tissue onto which it is inoculated is given as evidence of the virus’ existence and pathogenicity. This is scientific fraud.” (Statement of Virus Isolation by Dr. Thomas Cowan, Dr. Andy Kaufman, Sally Fallon Morell)

4) Regarding this statement: "The responses below address the isolation of the virus from the diseased host, which requires growth in cell culture. Viruses do not replicate outside of a host or in a pure culture (devoid of other cells)" You are stating that virus-isolation requires growth in cell culture--which many scientists and physicians do not agree is the correct method of virus isolation, and which makes no sense to anyone who is not a scientist either; if a virus exists, it should be able to be isolated from the diseased host and grown in a pure culture (Koch's Postulate 2), not one contaminated with other cells (where there is no way to prove what is growing then). If as you say a virus does not replicate in a pure culture devoid of other cells, why then do you call it a virus or vector of disease--what is pathogenic or contagious about it?

The statement made here that "viruses do not replicate outside of a host" is indeed very telling: it suggests viruses cannot be transmitters of disease, they cannot replicate outside of a diseased person's body: this means your professed SARS-COV-2 (which you (CDC) have not proved exists) cannot be transmitted from one person to another, the virus cannot survive and replicate in air even if coughed or sneezed out by someone sick, viral disease (replication of virus) cannot be transmitted. This means the “Public Health Emergency” is a lie, and wearing masks is a lie and fraud too: if a virus cannot replicate outside someone's cells, nobody need worry about it, it is not going to infect anyone else, and wearing a mask is immaterial—except to reinfect oneself probably (which indeed many scientists and physicians have discussed publicly is happening, with whatever pathogens inhabit the upper respiratory tract) while constraining oxygen intake, free air flow, free excretion of toxins (such as carbondioxide) through lungs and nose, and thereby inhibiting the body's natural immune system.

5) Further, regarding the latter part of this statement: “Koch’s postulates were formed prior to the identification of viruses as the causative agents of some diseases and also pre-date modern microbiological techniques, including the ability to isolate viruses from hosts. As such, Koch’s postulates have limitations when evaluating viruses and do not adequately account for the way viruses are isolated and propagated given that viruses are obligate intracellular parasites.”

If viruses are being seen as “obligate intracellular parasites” locked inside cells and requiring dubious cell-culture additives to detect, then, as the SOVI physicians and medical professionals (Kaufman, Cowan, Farrell) question: “then how is the virus spread from person to person? We are told it emerges from the cell to infect others. Then why isn’t it possible to find it?”

This is further confirmation from CDC that SARS-COV-2 (not proved to exist) cannot be transmitted at all, is NOT a “highly contagious disease” as Rochelle Walensky has recently stated of the professed “Delta Variant,” is NOT infectious, and is NOT reason to call a “Public Health Emergency” and a “Pandemic” and lock the whole world down (irresponsibly causing much suffering, loss of life, loss of income, loss of career, loss of family time, loss of community support, loss of social interaction, and loss of health, physical, psychological, and mental, worldwide.)

I am confirming here that CDC is stating openly 1) you (CDC) have no information, evidence, or proof of isolation of this so-called and professed SARS-COV-2 virus in the manner of purifying and isolating understood by the Koch's Postulates (2), no evidence of this supposed arbiter of an eternally-spawned pandemic (variants issuing forth in multitude) in the way of electron micrographs or purified isolate or clear genome extraction and sequencing, and 2) you (CDC) have no proof of infection or transmission by way of establishing culturing in a pure medium or by way of infection of healthy animals or people as understood by Koch's Postulates (3 and 4).

If I have misread your communication and such information, evidence, and proof exists, kindly direct me to it, thanks.

As it stands, it appears CDC has declared a pandemic on entirely false grounds: if no virus can be isolated, no virus can be detected: the basic premise for the wrongfully-used PCR Tests, problematic on many grounds, is thereby proved false.

What CDC (referencing “modern microbiology” as you (CDC) do below) has been calling a “fatal coronavirus” from the start appears to come from a mess of computer-generated sequences with no basis in reality, but derived from a mess of cell culture and added toxins which as SOVI states, is a “brew containing fragments of genetic material from many sources...then subjected to genetic analysis, which then creates in a computer-simulation process the alleged sequence of the alleged virus, a so called in silico genome. At no time is an actual virus confirmed by electron microscopy. At no time is a genome extracted and sequenced from an actual virus.”

The correct thing for CDC to do is immediately call off this false “pandemic” before more people die or are disabled by the deadly mRNA vaccines, reports of which at the CDC's own VAERS database have now exceeded a shocking and tragic 12,000 deaths and over 150, 000 adverse reactions or vaccine injuries, including among children.

Concocting case numbers by forcing people—including the asymptomatic, aka the healthy—to take the wrongful PCR tests known to produce 90% False-Positives, without being able to produce any evidence of a purified isolate of the professed SARS-COV-2 virus, which cannot be used therefore in the professed detection of SARS-COV-2 by ANY test whatsoever, let alone the wrongful and over-amplified PCR Test, is reckless scientific fraud, mass public deception, and a crime against all humanity.

Kindly convey this critical information to all CDC Program Staff and all directors, managers, and shareholders of CDC immediately, including Rochelle Walensky. The American people and the world are not prepared to exist indefinitely in subjugation to medical and scientific fraud emanating from the CDC.

Sincerely,
Ramola D

Updated language below:

For administrative convenience and to fully respond to your request, program staff have provided the following information below with corresponding web links.

The responses below address the isolation of the virus from the diseased host, which requires growth in cell culture. Viruses do not replicate outside of a host or in a pure culture (devoid of other cells). Koch’s postulates were formed prior to the identification of viruses as the causative agents of some diseases and also pre-date modern microbiological techniques, including the ability to isolate viruses from hosts.

SARS-CoV-2 is the virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Active infection with SARS-CoV-2 is detected by diagnostic tests. Currently there are two types of diagnostic tests – molecular tests that detect the virus's genetic material and antigen tests that detect specific proteins on the surface of the virus. For current data showing the total number of SARS-CoV-2-positive cases and deaths, visit the CDC COVID-19 Data Tracker, which shows cases and deaths in the United States broken down by state and county, daily trends in the number of cases by state, and other parameters.

Evidence of SARS-CoV-2 infection can be found in a study entitled, Pathology and Pathogenesis of SARS-CoV-2 Associated with Fatal Coronavirus Disease, which includes electron microscopy images of SARS-CoV-2 in infected lung and upper airway tissues as well as staining of lung and upper airway tissues using an antibody against SARS-CoV-2.

The specimens analyzed in this study were from patients with common signs and symptoms associated with COVID-19, including fever, cough, and shortness of breath. All patients had abnormal findings on chest radiographs.

There are other similar studies publicly available online. To aid in locating other related studies, please see the articles suggested in the "Similar Articles" and "Cited by" section on the manuscript's PubMed entry.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus may be isolated from human clinical specimens by culturing in cells. In January 2020, CDC isolated the SARS-CoV-2 virus from a clinical specimen from the first confirmed case of COVID-19 in the United States.

Hello--I am following up to ensure CDC received my confirmatory email. Since I have not heard back from CDC I will conclude CDC agrees with the confirmations spelled out in my confirmatory email to Mr. Bruno Viana, posted above.

Should CDC not agree with the confirmations noted on this very important matter, kindly let me know.

I will aim to report this correspondence as it stands, otherwise.

I do Hope Mr. Viana is making my letter available to all upper management at CDC, including Ms. Rochelle Walensky.

Thanks very much.
