World Health Organization Wins Dismissal Of New York Lawsuit For Gross Negligence Over Its Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic Response

Reuters: WHO wins dismissal of lawsuit in New York over pandemic response
NEW YORK, April 5 (Reuters) – A U.S. judge has dismissed a lawsuit by residents of a suburban New York City county who accused the World Health Organization of gross negligence in responding to the coronavirus pandemic.
U.S. District Judge Cathy Seibel on Monday said the WHO was immune under its own 1948 constitution and the International Organization Immunities Act from the proposed class-action lawsuit by the seven Westchester County plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs, including a New Rochelle doctor and six Mount Vernon residents who contracted COVID-19, sought damages for Westchester adults over the WHO’s alleged downplaying of the coronavirus early in the outbreak, and failure to quickly declare a pandemic and coordinate a global response.
