It’s a Chinese bioweapon that escaped a BSL-4 Laboratory in Wuhan. Reparations to ALL are in order.

Recall a gas leak incident on the night of December 2, 1984 at the Union Carbide India Limited pesticide plant in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India. It is considered to be the world’s worst industrial disaster. The reparations paid by Union Carbide were equivalent to $845 million in 2018 — for killing 3,787 in the gas release, and to 574,366 injured victims…in India where daily wage was roughly US$0.50/day in 1984. Today’s annual wage in PRC and EU, respectively, is US$10/day and $100/day. Multiply China’s exposure against PRC and EU wage increases (20x and 200x respectively):

US$17 Billion inside China (117,921,010,000 RMB)

US$17 Billion outside China (117,921,010,000 RMB)

US$3 Trillion in economic losses to economies connected to China (20,809,590,000,000 RMB).

Before this is done, the costs attributable to Chinese Communist Party malfeasance could exceed US$ 5 Trillion in economic and personal losses worldwide. (35,000,000,000,000 RMB).

There are presently 3,214 deaths and 94,250 confirmed coronavirus cases worldwide, with more cases popping up outside China than inside.

Union Carbide took responsibility for their actions — so MUST Chinese Communist Party. These are real “damage” caused by real “negligence”.
