From: Adrianne Jeffries

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

News reports stated that CDC decided not to use the World Health Organization test for the novel coronavirus (ex. https://www.propublica.org/article/cdc-coronavirus-covid-19-test) and Washington Senator Patty Murray sent a letter to CDC asking why the agency chose not to use the WHO test (https://www.help.senate.gov/ranking/newsroom/press/coronavirus-murray-demands-answers-from-vice-president-pence-over-coronavirus-diagnostic-testing-delay-).

I'm seeking copies of correspondence between CDC officials Robert Redfield, Mitch Wolfe, Steve Monroe, Stephen Redd, and John Dreyzehner between December 1, 2019, and March 15, 2020, regarding the choice of which test to use, and any correspondence between these officials, their staff, and staff at the World Health Organization regarding the decision to develop a new test.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Adrianne Jeffries
