Terry I started this petition to Congress and the President of the US

Since the beginning of Covid-19, it's clear that China is responsible for the pandemic. The Chinese government worsened matters by deliberately preventing transparent scientific investigations.  Sadly, as of the end of May 2021, more than 3.5 million people have died worldwide, as well as economic losses into the trillions of dollars.  All of this belies the overwhelming grief and pain caused by the virus.

China needs to be held accountable for their irresponsible actions that vigorously infers a strategy of deception regarding the truth about Covid-19.  Doing so would also serve to warn those who may act negligently in any possible future pandemic.

Hence, I urge the President and Congress of the United States to convene a meeting of nations regarding Covid-19.  China should be held financially responsible for the economic cost of the pandemic to governments.  To ensure that China pays this "debt", I propose a 20% tariff (or more) on goods and services by Chinese companies.  Likewise, countries should place a 20% tariff (or more) on goods and services sold to Chinese companies and their government.  The 20% assessments will remain in place until China fully compensates for the cost of the pandemic.  Since a country may opt out of this proposal, 20% countervailing tariffs would also be applied to those who choose not to participate in this plan, so that no other nation exploits the situation.
