Are 70 countries around the world preparing to sue China for COVID-19 vaccine deaths?!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : 70 Countries Are Preparing To Sue China For Vaccine Deaths!
This message is going viral on WhatsApp and Twitter, claiming that 70 countries around the world are preparing to sue China for COVID-19 vaccine deaths.
The message is often linked to the source of that claim – this Gnews article :
Truth : 70 Countries Are Not Preparing To Sue China For Vaccine Deaths!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by G News, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : No Country Is Preparing To Sue China For Vaccine Deaths
Despite what Miles Guo may claim, there is no country that is planning to sue the Chinese Communist Party for deaths related to Chinese vaccines.
Fact #2 : There Is No International Arbitration Court
There is no international body called the International Arbitration Court. The two major courts that deal with disputes between countries are :
- The International Court of Justice (ICJ), which is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations
- The Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA), which is a non-UN intergovernmental organisation.
Neither the ICJ nor the PCA are based in London, the United Kingdom. They are both based in The Hague, Netherlands.
There is a London Court of International Arbitration, but that is a British private company offers dispute resolution through arbitration and mediation. Hardly a proper channel to “sue” China, isn’t it?
Fact #3 : G-Times News Is Infamous For Fake News
This fake story was created by G-Times News (also known as GNews or G News), a website owned by Guo Media.
Guo Media is a company associated with Guo Wengui (also known as Miles Guo), an exiled Chinese businessman, and Steve Bannon – both of whom are infamous for creating and spreading misinformation.
Naturally, both Guo and Bannon are often featured in G News coverage. It doesn’t make them prescient, just pretentious.
Just like the time G-Times News claimed that Pfizer delisted itself on the Nasdaq and NYSE!

Fact #4 : Chinese Vaccines Save Lives
They were not very efficacious even against the ancestral COVID-19 virus, but they offered very good protection against severe disease and death, as this table shows.
Their efficacy against COVID-19 variants like Delta and Omicron were much poorer to be sure. But we have to acknowledge that these Chinese vaccines still saved lives.

|COVID-19 Vaccine||Protection Against|
|Gamaleya Sputnik V||91.6%||100%||100%|
|AstraZeneca AZD1222||62% ~ 90%||100%||100%|
|Sinopharm BBIBP-CorV||79% ~ 86%||90%||100%|
|J&J Janssen COVID-19||66.0%||85%||100%|
Fact #5 : CCP Did Not Make COVID-19 Vaccines
The Chinese COVID-19 vaccines were developed and produced by various Chinese pharmaceutical companies, not the Chinese Communist Party.
So it would be really absurd to sue the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), or the country of China, for the poor efficacy of vaccines produced by Chinese companies.
Only fake news creators and conspiracy theorists can come up with such ridiculous claims, and expect to be taken seriously.
