I am Donald Beswick, the author of Testing Germ Warfare Agents in New Zealand. In 1987-88 I was one of five staff members who contracted a painful incapacitating illness later known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Working with me at the time were two staff members from Medical Electronics; a charge orderly, a nurse manager, and a medical librarian.
Our research uncovered no evidence of a hospital acquired infection.This experience led me to my investigation of germ warfare experimentation, as has been documented in other countries.
