FOIA Case Targets Wuhan Links of UN WHO's Daszak,  300 Pages Per Month Were Ordered

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 7 – A FOIA case was filed by the publisher of The Intercept, First Look Institute, against the National Institutes of Health, for records "demonstrative of funding to provided to virologist Dr. Peter Daszak to study the emergence of zoonotice diseases such as Sars-CoV-2, the virus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic."    

         On August 30 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Gregory H. Woods held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it. 

 The complaint states that Daszak "is the sole U.S. scientist on the World Health Organization (WHO) team investigating the orders of the virus... Daszak has deep, longstanding ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a Chinese research facility central to questions about the origin of the pandemic."

  Judge Woods ordered the production of 300 pages per month, with a status letter due on December 1.

Inner City Press said it would follow the case, and it has. The joint December 1 letter says the pool of communications is down from 11,000 pages to 2,100. But, plaintiffs say, NIH will go no further.

 NIH, for its part, says it will be finished producing records in seven months.

The case is First Look Institute, Inc. et al v. National Institutes of Health, 21-cv-4024 (Woods)
