A respected Chinese virologist who fled China for the US has said Beijing knew about the possible perils of the novel coronavirus before it was declared a pandemic and that she’ll publish evidence to prove the virus is man-made.
Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a virologist specializing in immunology as well from the prestigious Hong Kong School of Public Health is accusing the Communist Party of China of shrouding the real source of the novel coronavirus which she claims comes from a Wuhan lab.
Hong Kong’s School of Public Health is one of the most high-profile institutes globally doing research on public health and is at the forefront of WHO’s effects on epidemic management.
According to the Yan, she fled China because her life is in danger and the Chinese government has removed all her data from the government database.
Now she is opening up in the US because she faces a moral and scientific obligation to let out the truth since she knows “if I don’t tell the truth to the world, I will be regretful.”
Earlier this month, the virologist appeared at a British talk show called ‘Loose women’ from a secret location where she revealed her secrets to the entire world.
“It comes from the lab — the lab in Wuhan and the lab is controlled by China’s government,” the doctor says in the explosive claim from a webcam conversation in the talk show.
She said the virus is not from nature and all the other reports widespread that say the virus emerged from a wet market in Wuhan are ‘smokescreen.’ She plans to publish a report in layman’s language to outline her claim with evidence.
“The genome sequence is like a human fingerprint. And based on this you can identify these things. I will [use this] evidence to tell people why this has come from the lab in China, why they are the ones who made it,” Dr. Yen said in the video seen by We The World.
She also said her report will be made in a way anyone without any deep knowledge of biology will be able to read and interpret the same for themselves. Both the Hong Kong University and the WHO has disputed her claims.
Giving more shocking details about the origin of the virus and the way the Chinese government works, she said the government not only wiped out all her data from the database, but the regime also encouraged people to spread rumors that she is a liar.
According to Yen, it was back in December last year she was already studying the virus which would later become the COVID-19 and was reportedly one of the first scientists to do so.
At the end of December 2019, one of her supervisors asked her to look upon odd SARS-like cases that had erupted in Mainland China causing ‘new pneumonia.’
Pulling some professional strings, Yen got to know a massive lie the Chinese government was covering from the rest of the world, and all the alarms she raised consequently were ignored, she said.
“I was a medical doctor and Ph.D., said Yan, ‘I work with a bunch of the top experts in the world and because I had my two degrees from mainland China, I was the one assigned to do the secret investigation about new pneumonia in Wuhan.
“During my investigation, what I found I reported to my supervisor, there was no response, because everyone was worried.
“So I kept silent, I knew I had to tell people because it’s urgent and on the account of a famous Chinese YouTuber in the US it was told to the world [that] China had discovered the COVID situation and [that] human to human transmission already exists.”
Speaking to the talk show host, Dr. Yen said she did not expect she had to flee and thought her supervisors at the university will take care of the report and let the world know the same, ethically. But she was soon proven wrong.
“But what I saw from the deep investigation was that no one responded to that. People are scared of the government and that they are waiting to collaborate with China government and WHO to get more benefit, to become safe,” she said about the result of her revelation to the authorities.
This is not the first time anyone has sprung up out of nowhere to claim some groundbreaking truths about the virus and its origin. There has been a number of conspiracy theories and rumors about the biggest public crisis of the century.
But what Dr. Li-Meng Yan said is partly in-line with the first whistleblower doctor Li Wenliang who was one of the first medical experts to blow the whistle over the loaming public crisis over the virus back in December 2019.
But Wenliang was reportedly zipped by the Chinese authorities on the pretext of spreading misinformation and making false comments. Months later the world encountered what is what of the ‘new pneumonia,’ as COVID-19 was referred to as before.
The director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the institution which was the target of accusations on the pretext the virus emerged from there, has however refuted the claims in April.
“There’s no way this virus came from us,” Yuan Zhiming told the state media.

“This is a critical thing for us to know the origin of the virus. If not, we cannot overcome it. I will be life-threatening for everyone around us,” Dr. Yan said ending her statement.
