Missouri Attorney General Files a Lawsuit Against Chinese Government

Missouri filed a lawsuit against the Chinese government over its handling of the coronavirus outbreak, saying China’s response led to devastating economic losses in the state.

A growing chorus of voices around the world is calling for China to compensate for the damages incurred due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

The coronavirus outbreak was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan late last year. It has since spread to over 180 countries and territories, killing more than 190,000 people around the world, data from Johns Hopkins University showed. The number of reported cases globally has exceeded 2.7 million.

Missouri’s lawsuit was filed in a federal court this week by state Attorney General Eric Schmitt, alleging negligence on China’s part. The complaint said Missouri and its residents have lost possibly tens of billions of dollars, and it seeks cash compensation.

“The Chinese government lied to the world about the danger and contagious nature of COVID-19, silenced whistleblowers, and did little to stop the spread of the disease,” Schmitt, a Republican, said in a statement. “They must be held accountable for their actions.”

Other lawsuits have been filed in U.S. courts on behalf of business owners, including a class-action lawsuit in Florida seeking reparations from the Chinese government for coronavirus-related damages on behalf of thousands of people.AMIBC® - VOTE! BE COUNTED! BE HEARD!
