Marking the culmination of a process that began more than a month ago, a Senate committee is backing a bill that would allow Americans to sue China for failing to stop the coronavirus pandemic.

It's the latest in a growing list of antagonistic tit-for-tat actions including ordering the closure of China's consulate in Houston, the first to open in the US following President Nixon's historic meeting with Mao back in the early 1970s. China retaliated by closing a US consulate in Chengdu, the capital of China's Sichuan Province.
