According to the reports, Freedom Watch, a Washington-based advocacy organization, and Buzz Photos, a Texas firm, specialized in high school sports imagery, have initiated a class-action lawsuit against the Chinese government, seeking $20 trillion as compensation for its ‘callous and irresponsible negligence and malicious acts’ that incurred inadmissible damages from the novel coronavirus.

The plaintiffs have reportedly accused the Chinese government of developing coronavirus as an illegal biological weapon in the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Wuhan, China where the virus has initially outbroken.

“Although it appears that the COVID-19 virus was released at an unplanned, unexpected time, it was prepared and stockpiled as a biological weapon to be used against China’s perceived enemies, including but not limited to the people of the US,” stated the plaint.

Larry Klayman, the lawyer appearing for the plaintiffs mentioned in the complaint that ‘the Chinese people, are good people, but their government is not and it must be made to pay dearly’. Meanwhile, Buzz Photos stated in the lawsuit that it has reportedly lost around $50,000 last weekend, due to school closures and sports cancellations, forcing to lay off workers.

Earlier, on 23 March, the President of United States Donald Trump asserted that he is ‘a little upset’ with China over its late sharing of information on the outbreak of the deadly COVID-19 and refusing to accept a visit by American medical experts to the country ‘out of pride’. He further added that the Chinese government has even punished the whistle-blowers who tried to expose it.

The US administration had also criticized Beijing for the coronavirus pandemic after the Chinese authorities held American troops accountable for introducing the deadly epidemic to China.

According to the World Health Organization, coronavirus, which appeared first in the Chinese city of Wuhan has spread across 189 nations, affected over 334,000 people and killed about 14,500.
