New Yorkers Sue WHO for 'Incalculable' Damages, Covering Up for China
The lawsuit was filed in the federal court in White Plains, New York
In a proposed class-action lawsuit, three men from New York are suing the World Health Organization (WHO) for 'incalculable' damages over its response to the coronavirus pandemic, which brought the world to a standstill.
One man, a resident of Westchester County, also accuses the WHO of not reacting quickly enough to declare a pandemic, and also covering up for Communist China.
The lawsuit was filed in the federal court in White Plains, New York, by Richard Kling, Steve Rotker, and Gennaro Purchia.
The suit seeks damages for 'incalculable' harm to the roughly 756,000 adult residents in Westchester County.
Westchester county became one of the coronavirus hot spots.
The plaintiffs accuse the United Nations health body of covering up and responding inappropriately to the pandemic.
The three men also accuse WHO of failing to monitor China's response to the outbreak, coordinate a global response, provide treatment guidelines, and advise on response to the virus.
As Neon Nettle reported earlier this month, the WHO received a warning about a deadly new coronavirus outbreak in China but chose to ignore it.
The Taiwanese government accused the WHO of ignoring its inquiries about COVID-19, and they were denied adequate information to fight the coronavirus.
The men also accuse WHO of a conspiracy with the Chinese government to cover up COVID-19's severity.
"The Chinese government and the WHO intentionally misled the international community, including the named Plaintiffs, about the coronavirus and its devastating medical and economic effects," according to the lawsuit.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly warned about China's mismanagement, cover-up, and missteps.
The president ultimately cut the body's funding after he declared, "they blew it."
Meanwhile, another group of lawyers in the United States has launched an unprecedented lawsuit against China, accusing the government of covering up the deadly coronavirus outbreak and allowing it to explode into a global pandemic.
The landmark legal action, to sue the Chinese government for trillions of dollars over the coronavirus pandemic, accuses leaders of the ruling Communist Party of China (CPC) of negligence and an attempted cover-up of COVID-19.
The class-action lawsuit was filed in Florida and involved thousands of claimants from 40 countries, including Britain and the U.S.
Trump also vowed to "find out" whether the deadly COVID-19 leaked from a Chinese lab before triggering a global pandemic.
"We're looking at it. A lot of people are looking at it. It seems to make sense," Trump told reporters at the White House last week.
