Says China Must Be Held Accountable For Pandemic and Economic Damage Done


Las Vegas, NV/April 13, 2020…Today Sam Peters, United States Air Force veteran, Bronze Star recipient, and Republican candidate for Congress in Nevada’s 4th District, called for immediate economic reimbursements from the Peoples Republic of China for the spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) the national pandemic and the economic hardships that have resulted in the United States. Peters said China must be held accountable for the damage it has caused. Peters highlights that top Chinese political and military leaders failed to truthfully report on the pandemic, cooperate with the United States and other nations in preventing the spread of the coronavirus, and also falsely accusing the United States military of being behind the pandemic. Studies have shown that China’s failure to report honestly on the pandemic has caused at least $4 trillion in economic damages and thousands of deaths. Additionally, Peters said the United States should inform Taiwan it will support its movement toward independence and provide recognition once the island nation is formed as the Republic of Taiwan.

“The deaths and economic devastation from the coronavirus can be put squarely at the feet of the Chinese Communist Party leadership and the Chinese military,” said Sam Peters. “Nearly 20,000 Americans are dead from this pandemic with one hundred and two Nevadans are dead today because of China and that number continues to rise. China must be held accountable and punished. The leadership could easily have prevented what is happening today and they chose not to. The Chinese leadership has blood on its hands.”

“I am calling for China and its leadership to pay the United States for the economic damages they have caused this nation,” continued Peters. “China must learn that there are severe consequences for what it has done and only by taking punitive actions against the Chinese leadership can we ensure that this will never happen again.”

Peters is a veteran of the United States Air Force. He served his country in Afghanistan, Iraq, Panama, and Korea. He earned the Bronze Star for his efforts in Afghanistan.

After his service to our nation, Peters worked for two years as a corporate employee where he managed nearly $100 million in annual revenue across the largest geographical region in the United States. Peters settled in Las Vegas with his family, and exercising his entrepreneurial spirit, Peters founded Peters Family Insurance with two locations. He presently employs eight.
