These are the questions being asked as the fallout from the coronavirus wreaks havoc on lives and the global economy. 
Shurat HaDin is hosting a roundtable panel discussion with legal experts on Tuesday. May 12 at 1 pm EST (8 pm Israel time) to discuss this fascinating question and its ramifications’.

"Generally, sovereign states have immunity that allows them to avoid being sued in court," explained attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, president of Shurat HaDin. "There is an exception under American law, however, that state sponsors of terrorism can be held liable for the terror acts they support and finance. This exception has allowed Shurat HaDin to represents terror victims in cases against North Korea, Syria, and Iran."

Darshan-Leitner said that people are approaching Shurat HaDin and asking whether China's failure to act might constitute a a breach of its duty under international law that could open it up to damages.
During the panel, she and other experts will tackle the issue.
Among those expected to participate are US Senator Marsha Blackburn, former US National Security Advisor John Bolton and lawyers Gordon G. Chang and John B. Bellinger, III.
