Attorney Matthew Moore, of Boca Raton, Florida has filed a nationwide class action suite against the People’s Republic of China for failing to report and contain the coronavirus outbreak that led to it become a global pandemic.

The complaint alleges that the China and other related defendants were aware that COVID-19 was contagious and capable of spreading quickly, yet they proverbially put their head in the sand to cover their own economic interest.

In addition to China, the suit also names various Chinese health and emergency departments, the Hubei province and the city of Wuhan, where COVID-19 first emerged in late December. The World Health Organization has since declared COVID-19 outbreak a global pandemic and President Trump has declared a national emergency.
