How Does A Lay Person Evaluate Medical Info?

in Deep Dives2 years ago (edited)


The more credible evidence to date is from the ABC
I'll update if it withstands or crumbles to the FoI I've thrown at it. (30day wait)

As much of the info and resource links gathered here is beyond my ability to critique or review, and in some cases even the relevancy to my eyes is dubious.
But I have no medical training, so hopefully a reader who does can advise if this answers my FOI query?


But as its been sent as part of a Freedom of Info Reply, throwing it out to the community is a quick way to have it peer reviewed. Is is just medical fog or is the proof in here?


What I hope is that other eyes with medical and virology backgrounds will be able to make use of it, and please leave me a comment if there is evidence in here that shows:

a pure, isolated Sars-cov-2 virus from a living patient, has been gathered and identified. No amplification, no cutures or computer modelling, uncontaminated by other mammalian cells
