Suit in Texas District Court as COVID-19 was designed by China as a bio-warfare weapon

American lawyer Larry Klayman has filed a USD 20 trillion lawsuit against China for the creation and the release of the novel coronavirus that has infected more than 334,000 people globally.

Prior Facts:

The virus, which first originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan, has spread 189 countries or territories, infected more than 334,000 people and killed over 14,500, as per the latest data available on the World Health Organisation website.

Key Features:

  • Larry Klayman, his advocacy group Freedom Watch and Buzz Photos, a Texas company, filed the lawsuit in the US District Court for the Northern District of Texas, alleging that the novel coronavirus was “designed by China to be a biological weapon of war“, and that whether or not the country intended to release it, China violated “US law, international laws, treaties, and norms.”
  • The lawsuit stated that, “Because China has agreed by treaty to outlaw such weapons, these actions cannot be official governmental actions of the People’s Republic of China and are not subject to any possible claim of legal immunity from suit”.
  • It went on to allege that the purpose of maintaining the virus within the laboratory was to use it to “kill US citizens and other persons and entities in nations perceived to be an enemy of China.”
  • It added that, “COVID-19 is an extremely dangerous disease because it has an extremely aggressive nature, was designed to mutate from person to person, spreads very quickly and easily, no vaccine exists yet on account of it being a new disease, the means of transmission are not fully known with certainty, and treatments are only just being worked out, and the disease appears to be about ten times as deadly as the flu”.
  • It said that the lawsuit was designed by China such as to be an effective and catastrophic biological warfare weapon to kill mass populations.
  • To build their case that the new Coronavirus is a military weapon originating from Wuhan, the plaintiffs point to reports concerning the Chinese Government’s efforts to silence doctors in Wuhan and throughout China from disclosing any information about the new disease initially.
  • In this regard, the plaintiffs also highlight reports that a prominent Chinese health professional – Major General Chen Wei – attempted to self-inject an untested vaccine, in an alleged attempt to contain the Coronavirus outbreak.
  • The Plaintiff’s in particular stated that, “Indeed, curiously, in the attempt to put the COVID-19 disease “back in the bottle” Major Gen. Chen injected herself and six members of her staff with a potential vaccine which had not yet been tested on animals… Thus, through the use of a possible vaccine on herself, Major Gen. Chen’s actions are consistent with desperation and her and her nation’s guilt that the Chinese military and all of the Defendants, acting in concert, jointly and severally as joint tort-feasors, caused this burgeoning national and world catastrophe”.
  • It is also added that, “the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology released a new directive titled: “Instructions on strengthening biosecurity management in microbiology labs that handle advanced viruses like the novel coronavirus.”
