The Standard – Thousands back suit seeking to put China in the dock for virus devastation

Thousands of Americans have reportedly signed onto a class action lawsuit in the southern US state of Florida which seeks compensation from the Chinese Government for coronavirus damages, as Western politicians increasingly call for accountability.

According to a statement from the Miami-based Berman Law Group, the lawsuit “seeks billions of dollars in compensatory damages for those who have suffered personal injuries, wrongful deaths, property damage and other damages due to China’s failure to contain the COVID-19 virus, despite their ability to have stopped the spread of the virus in its early stages,” ABC News reports.

The firm said it “looks forward to fighting for the rights of people and businesses across Florida and the rest of the country, who are now becoming sick or caring for loved ones, dealing with financial calamity, and navigating this new world of panic and social distancing and isolation.”
