Republican Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama called for China to “pay restitution” after having “created” and “lied about” the coronavirus, causing death and severe harm to the world.
“Communist China should be held financially accountable for damages and injuries caused by COVID-19,” said Brooks. “That is why I’ve introduced the ‘China COVID–19 Restitution Act.'”
“The bill, first introduced by Brooks in June, requires the president to impose duties on Chinese manufactured goods and components, with resulting funds providing compensation and reimbursement for COVID-19-related losses,” reports Breitbart News.

“Brooks, a candidate for U.S. Senate in Alabama, accused China of having engineered the original strain of the now ubiquitous respiratory virus and then having sought to cover it up,” reported Breitbart News.
“I am persuaded by the evidence that the Communist Chinese Party created COVID-19 in their Wuhan bioweapons lab,” Brooks said. “Making matters worse, China’s subsequent lies about the contagiousness and lethality of COVID-19 increased tragic loss of life and economic damage to America and Americans.”
