(Michael Barnes, Liberty Headlines) U.S. Rep. John Curtis has joined a growing list of elected officials calling for China to be held accountable for the Wuhan virus catastrophe.

The Utah Republican introduced legislation last week that would sanction any senior foreign official responsible for deliberately concealing health data regarding a pandemic.

The legislation would also sanction any official who profited off of the concealment of health information, and anyone acting on their behalf, including revoking their visas and seizing assets.

Curtis named the bill after Dr. Li Wenliang, the Wuhan physician who was punished by the Chinese Communist Party for alerting others about the deadly super virus in the earliest days of the outbreak.

“The Li Wenliang Global Public Health Accountability Act—named after the heroic Chinese doctor whistleblower—will ensure that dictators and their cronies think twice before once allowing a local health crisis spiral out of control into a pandemic that endangers the globe,” said Curtis.

Curtis now joins GOP Sens. Josh Hawley of Missouri and Tom Cotton of Arkansas in filing legislation aimed at holding China responsible.

Hawley has introduced a bicameral resolution calling for an “international investigation” into the Chinese government’s devious cover-up of the disease, and for China to reimburse all nations impacted by the CCP’s lies and corruption.

Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY, filed companion legislation in the House of Representatives.

“Since day one, the Chinese Communist Party intentionally lied to the world about the origin of this pandemic,” Hawley said in a statement.

Cotton, a decorated Afghan War veteran, has filed legislation to bring America’s pharmaceutical supply chain home and was first to rip the CCP for its handling of the Wuhan virus.

“If they had acted quickly, rather than lying to their own people, suppressing the whistleblowers and lying to the world, then not only China, but U.S. and other scientists and researchers and epidemiologists and other experts from around the world could have helped them contain this in Wuhan or in Hubei province,” said Cotton.

And Sen Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., warned the Chinese Communist Party that the U.S. trade relationship with China  will “change” if the nation does not ban wet markets, the New York Post reported.

“I don’t think this came from a Chinese military lab, but these wet markets are gross, they’re just absolutely disgusting, selling exotic animals that transmit viruses from animals to human beings,” he said on “Fox and Friends” last week. “Those things need to shut down.”

Curtis said his sanctions bill will “ensure that dictators and their cronies think twice before allowing a local health crisis spiral out of control.”
