China should be held responsible for the coronavirus outbreak and compensate the rest of the world for its “criminal conduct,” a Republican senator said.

Sen. Josh Hawley, a Missouri Republican, announced on Tuesday he was introducing a resolution calling for a “full investigation” into the Chinese Communist Party’s “lies and actions” that allowed the spread of the COVID-19 virus around the world. And he called on Beijing to “pay damages to the USA and the world.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The text of Hawley’s resolution, which was introduced with a companion resolution in the House from Rep. Elise Stefanik, a New York Republican, calls for the United States and other nations to “design a mechanism for delivering compensation” for the coronavirus outbreak. The resolution does not specify how much money the Chinese government should pay.

Hawley tweeted on Tuesday, “Today I will introduce a resolution calling for full investigation of #China Communist Party’s lies & actions that killed thousands of their own people & turned #CoronavirusOutbreak #COVID19 into a global pandemic.”

“The cost of Beijing’s criminal conduct should be assessed and they should pay damages to USA and the world,” he added.
