Berman Law Group in Florida has brought forward the lawsuit against the Chinese Communist Party for negligence, lies and cover-up.

According to 9News, more than 10,000 people have signed onto the class action. Some are grieving family members, who are devastated after a loved one died from Covid-19, and others are healthcare workers who have been affected by the pandemic.

Chief strategist for the case, Jeremy Alters, told 60 Minutes: “We are now in the depth of this economic and human crisis that could have been mostly prevented, if not all prevented.

“This lawsuit is based on the fact that [China] knew about this virus.

“They failed to contain the virus. They failed to let us know in a timely fashion about the virus and have unleashed hell on our communities, on our countries, the United States, Australia and everywhere else.”
