Congresswoman Elise Stefanik says she wants China to be held accountable for what she calls the coronavirus coverup.    

Stefanik introduced a resolution on Tuesday.


“There is no doubt that China’s unconscionable decision to orchestrate an elaborate coverup of the wide-ranging and deadly implications of coronavirus led to the death of thousands of people, including hundreds of Americans and climbing. This Resolution calls for China to provide compensation for the harm, loss, and destruction their arrogance brought upon the rest of the world,” said Congresswoman Stefanik.    

Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri introduced similar legislation in the Senate.
