Ethylene Oxide Inside Children’s Covid19 Rapid Antigen Lateral Flow Test Kits

OFFICIAL

Dear Paul,

Many thanks for your email, copied below for information.

Lateral flow tests have been rigorously tested and are safe to use on a regular basis. Any suggestion otherwise is inaccurate and harmful misinformation.

Ethylene oxide is only used in the sterilisation of swabs and it is one of the most commonly used sterilisation tools in the healthcare industry, principally applied by manufacturers to keep medical devices safe. Any traces of ethylene oxide remaining in the lateral flow device or packaging after sterilisation are below limits that would be considered hazardous for health and comply with international standards. The types of devices that are sterilized with ethylene oxide range from devices used in general health care practices (for example, wound dressings) to more specialized devices that are used inside the body. The manufacturers have confirmed that *1-2ug/g of ethylene oxide is used in the swabs, which is well within national/international safety standards.

Kind regards,

Stephen

*Wirral In It Together. OUR ANNOTATION. 1-2 µG/G is equivalent to 1-2 ppm or parts per million. However this assertion – like all the others peppering this email – has to be taken on trust because Mr Flanagan hasn’t backed himself up, opting instead to use several unevidenced assertions. Nowhere is there any evidence derived from the specific official standards applicable to these Lateral Flow Rapid Antigen testing swabs / testing kits. So we’re still in the dark on this. Our forthcoming response will seek further information in this area.

Subject: Cancer-causing ethylene oxide inside children’s Covid19 test kits

Dear Public Health England (North West),

Your name was helpfully passed to me on 23rd March by Weatherhead High Senior Deputy Headteacher Miss N Sullivan when I raised with her via email the above pressing issue as a concerned parent.

In order to hasten the process and to avoid repetition, please proceed to the following two web links in order to appraise yourself of the details under discussion here:

1. https://wirralinittogether.blog/2021/03/20/has-your-child-brought-this-nhs-covid19-testing-kit-home-from-school/

2. https://wirralinittogether.blog/2021/03/24/cancer-causing-ethylene-oxide-inside-childrens-covid19-test-kits-theres-no-acknowledgement-of-any-danger-but-weve-had-a-response-from-the-school-to-our-concerns/

On the face of it, the threat to children appears to be very serious, but thus far has neither been acknowledged nor acted upon directly, nor given the level of importance it warrants.

I would be most grateful if you could contact me as soon as possible with your proposals,

Many thanks,

Paul Cardin

    Please share the email of Stephen Flanagan – Senior Health Protection Practitioner – Public Health England. I would like to write back to him that his reply is unacceptable. ANY AMOUNT of Carcinogenic chemical inserted into the blood brain barrier is DANGEROUS. To tell us otherwise is negligent.

    Please see this article – Cotton is especially absorbent and will retain Ethylene Oxide. We have been told many times by BIG PHARMA that things are safe, and they turn out to be the opposite. Schools should be put on notice to inform all parents that the nasal tests contain Ethylene Oxide. https://www.steris-ast.com/techtip/overview-ethylene-oxide-residuals/
