Judicial Watch announced that it and the Daily Caller News Foundation received 301 pages of emails of Dr. Anthony Fauci from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services showing that National Institutes of Health (NIH) officials tailored confidentiality forms to China’s terms and that the World Health Organization (WHO) conducted an unreleased, “strictly confidential” Covid-19 epidemiological analysis in January 2020.
“These new emails show the WHO and Fauci’s NIH special accommodations to Chinese communist efforts to control information about Covid-19,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
The emails, obtained by Judicial Watch via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, “set the tone early on in the coronavirus outbreak. It’s clear that the WHO allowed China to control the information flow from the start. True transparency is crucial,” said Ethan Barton, editor-in chief for the Daily Caller News Foundation.
