China hit with trillion-dollar coronavirus lawsuit

A Las Vegas lawyer has filed a federal lawsuit seeking compensation from China for the financial carnage wrought by the coronavirus pandemic.

Eglet Adams is seeking a whopping $20 trillion.

The class action suit is on behalf of several small businesses.

The suit is targeting various organizations such as the People's Republic of China, the Wuhan city authority, several government ministries and health agencies.

It says various agencies conspired to cover up the seriousness of the virus outbreak 'in a campaign of misinformation and lies.'

"They engaged in a campaign of intimidating and arresting any Chinese doctors, scientists, attorneys and/or reporters who tried to alert the public about this dangerous 'new' coronavirus," it claims.

Adams says the lawsuit is not a frivolous one.

"China has trillions in assets here in the United States, so this judgment's collectible," he said.

The suit says over a million small businesses in the US have closed or had to downsize their operations.

"The PRC and the other defendants had a responsibility to its own citizens, the World Health Organization, and the international community, including the citizens and businesses of the US and those in the State of Nevada, to immediately disclose this."

Plaintiffs named in the complaint include a Las Vegas restaurant and a real estate firm.
