Missouri’s Attorney General Eric Schmitt files lawsuit against Chinese government, Chinese Communist Party, and other Chinese officials over COVID-19 pandemic

In yet another lawsuit against the Chinese government that has resulted as a result of the coronavirus which emerged from Wuhan China, the office of Missouri’s Attorney General Eric Schmitt stated, it had filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri against the Chinese government, the Chinese Communist Party, along with other Chinese officials.

According to the lawsuit, China has suppressed information, denied the contagious nature of the 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic as well as arrested whistleblowers.

“In Missouri, the impact of the virus is very real – thousands have been infected, and many have died, families have been separated from dying loved ones, small businesses are shuttering their doors, and those living paycheck to paycheck are struggling to put food on their table,” said Schmitt.

“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. They must be held accountable for their actions.”

A spokesperson representing Schmitt’s office described the move as “historical.”
