Report: White House looks into lawsuits against China

The White House is looking into lawsuits brought by private US citizens against China over the country's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, the Nikkei Asian Review reported citing an anonymous source with knowledge of the matter.

The report also noted that one class-action lawsuit has been brought against the Communist Party of China which, if successful, could lead to the seizing of properties linked to the ruling party that are located in the US.

Washington has been exploring potential retaliation measures against Beijing, while President Donald Trump cast doubt over the supposed natural origin of the novel coronavirus, suggesting it may have been released from a lab in Wuhan.
