A Chinese virologist has claimed in a video interview that she has scientific proof that the novel coronavirus was made in a Wuhan laboratory.
Dr.Li-Meng Yan is a Chinese scientist who had been researching the novel coronavirus since last year. She was working at the Hong Kong School of Public Health when she came across the proof of coronavirus being lab-made.
She said in the interview that she came to know about the virus while studying pneumonia in Wuhan. She said that there was no response from the World Health Organization when coronavirus was reported and that the Chinese officials ignored her warnings despite being aware of the danger the world was about to face.
Yan, in a video interview, claimed that the virus was lab-made in Wuhan, and that particular lab is controlled by the Chinese government. She also stressed that the reasoning being given of the coronavirus originating from a wet market in Wuhan is simply ‘a smokescreen’ She claimed to be sure about it as she got her intelligence from the CDC in China, from the local doctors.
Yan said she had to flee to the United States after being threatened by the Chinese officials when she wanted to sound the alarm. She also alleged the Chinese authorities of employing people to spread rumors about her and deleting all her information. Yan is now hiding in the United States as she is worried about her safety after being labeled as a whistleblower.
