The state of Missouri is suing the Chinese government for its mishandling of COVID-19.

According to news reports, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt has filed a federal lawsuit in a U.S. court, seeking to hold China accountable for the COVID-19 pandemic. Missouri claims China did little to stop the spread of the virus and “lied to the world about the danger and contagious nature of COVID-19.”
