1.Mississippi has become the second US state to sue China

On 22nd April , Mississippi announced to sue Chinese government over the “mishandling during the outbreak”. This is the second American state who decided to sue CCP after Missouri.

Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch announces this state on Wednesday. She said: “For many Mississippians have suffered as a result of China’s cover-up.”

Fitch said she would hold China accountable for “the malicious and dangerous act” on behalf of the state. “They must not be allowed to act with impunity. Mississippians deserve justice and I will seek that in court.”

The lawsuit will seek compensation under the Foreign Sovereign Immunity Act, short for FSIA, according to a document released Wednesday by the state’s Justice Department. Missouri’s attorney general Eric Schmitt filed the similar lawsuit against Beijing’s handling of the outbreak on Tuesday.
