- China has reacted in anger after Germany sent it a bill of GHC929 trillion (£130 billion) for damages resulting from the outbreak of the coronavirus
- The act follows similar condemnations from the United Kingdom (UK), France and the United States of America (USA)

China has reacted in anger after Germany prepared and sent a GHC929 trillion (£130 billion) invoice for damages resulting from the coronavirus outbreak.
Germany’s move comes after the United Kingdom (UK), France and the United States of America (USA) descended on the Asian nation for its role in the global pandemic.
YEN.com.gh has learned that the bill was prepared by Bild, a major newspaper, amid reports that Beijing hid the true details of the coronavirus from the rest of the world.
Bild’s list includes a €27 billion charge for lost tourism revenue, up to €7.2 billion for the German film industry, a million euros an hour for German airline Lufthansa and €50 billion for German small businesses.
It added that this amounts to €1,784 (£1,550) per person if Germany's GDP falls by 4.2%, under the title "What China owes us."
This comes as rumours of an intentional spread continue to spread all over the world and the source of the outbreak remains a mystery.
Meanwhile, Ghana's President Akufo-Addo has lifted the partial lockdown imposed on Accra, Kumasi, and Kaso.
The Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has thus warned that the government will no longer share food to people.
Many people have disagreed with the government's decision to lift the lockdown when the country has confirmed over 1,000 cases of coronavirus.
