In a shocking statement, a Chinese virologist, Dr Li-Meng Yan, has said the coronavirus was manufactured in a lab in Wuhan, China. She also claimed to be having proof for the same.
In an exclusive conversation with ‘Loose Women’, a British talk show, Dr Li-Meng Yan, the scientist said she was assigned to investigate “new pneumonia” in Wuhan. She claimed that she discovered a cover-up operation regarding coronavirus during her investigation.
Li joined the Loose Women talk from a secret location. It was said on the show, “Dr Li claims she had to flee to the US for her own safety and is now determined to spread her findings to the world. She joined the Loose Women from a secret location to tell us why she felt compelled to speak out, even if it meant putting her life on the line.”
Li claimed she has proof that the virus came from a virology lab in the city and not from the wet-food market.
She said in the video released on YouTube, “The genome sequence is like a human fingerprint.”
She also claimed that she was asked to keep silent and careful when she reported that cases appeared to be rising exponentially.
“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,” she adds. “Anyone, even if you have no biology knowledge, will be able to read it, and check and identify and verify it yourself,” she said as quoted in the article.
Accusing the Chinese authorities of dismissing her even before she fled the country, she said, “They deleted all my information and also they told people to spread rumours about me.”
However, The Chinese National Health Commission, World Health Organisation and University Of Hong Kong have disputed her claims, according to sources.
