A Chinese virologist who claims coronavirus is a man-made disease that originated in a laboratory in China released a report on Monday that she says supports her explosive claim.
Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a former researcher at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, believes she has proven how SARS-CoV-2, the deadly strain of the coronavirus, can be ‘easily’ created in a lab setting in just six months.
The scientist posted a paper on the open-access repository website Zenote, co-authored with two others, entitled “Unusual features of the SARS-CoV-2 genome suggest advanced laboratory modification rather than natural evolution and delineation of the likely synthetic pathway “.
It claims to note how Covid-19 “exhibits biological characteristics inconsistent with a naturally occurring zoonotic virus,” indicating that the disease is man-made.
Dr. Yan’s newspaper comes after the whistleblower gave an interview to Loose Women on Friday, reiterating her claim that the coronavirus “comes from the laboratory – the laboratory in Wuhan and the laboratory is controlled by the Chinese government.”
She maintained that the common belief that Covid-19 came from a wet market in Wuhan last year is “a smokescreen,” adding, “This virus is not from nature.”
The virologist, who claims to have conducted one of the first studies of the deadly disease last year, has previously accused Beijing of lying when it learned of the deadly disease and engaged in an extensive cover-up of her work.
In April, Dr. Yan reportedly fled Hong Kong and fled to the US to raise awareness about the pandemic.
She allegedly hid in fear for her safety, claiming that her former supervisors from the Hong Kong School of Public Health, a reference laboratory for the World Health Organization, silenced her when she raised the alarm about human-to-human transmission. in December last year.
Yan said that before she fled China, her data had been wiped from government databases.
She claimed, ‘They deleted all my information and also told people to spread rumors about me.
“That I’m a liar, I don’t know, I just killed a hamster in the lab.
“They will try to control my family and friends and then suddenly I don’t exist.”
But the lab has denied Yan’s claims, claiming that she “never did any research on human-to-human transmission,” adding that her claims have “no scientific basis.”
Yuan Zhiming, director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, has previously denied that the bug accidentally spread from his facility.
