Coronavirus developed at government lab in Wuhan, claims Chinese virologist Li-Meng Yan


Chinese virologist Dr Li-Meng Yan on Tuesday (September 22) claimed that coronavirus was developed in a government laboratory in Wuhan and alleged that the World Health Organization (WHO) is very much part of the cover-up. 

Dr Li-Meng Yan made these startling revelations in an exclusive interview with news channel WION's Executive Editor Palki Sharma. She also said that the Chinese government was aware of the spread of COVID-19. 

The Chinese virologist, who investigated the origin of the COVID-19 virus during the initial outbreak in Wuhan, said that she discovered a cover-up operation in Wuhan. The Chinese government knew about the spread of the deadly virus before publicly acknowledging it, she added.

According to Dr Li-Meng Yan, Wuhan's wet market is just a smokescreen from the Chinese Communist Party. She also claimed that the Chinese government is trying to tarnish her reputation through social media, conduct cyber-attacks on her and intimidate her family in China.

The Chinese virologist, who was a post-doctoral fellow in virology and immunology at Hong Kong School of Public Health, said that she was also muzzled by her supervisors.

Yan claims the Chinese government is now trying to tarnish her reputation through social media, conduct cyber-attacks on her and intimidate her family in China.

Earlier on September 14, Chinese virologist Dr Li-Meng Yan had claimed that COVID-19 was made in a Wuhan laboratory. Yan, who was associated with the Hong Kong School of Public Health, had been researching the coronavirus for a long time. The Chinese virologist claimed that during her research she came across that coronavirus was developed in a laboratory in China.

Dr Li-Meng Yan had also accused China of not taking proper precautions to contain the spread of coronavirus and offered scientific proof that COVID-19 is lab-made in Wuhan.

Her Twitter account was later suspended by the social media giant claiming the account violated the "Twitter rules". 

Dr Yan had also revealed that she had to flee to the US for her safety after being threatened by the Chinese officials when she wanted to alert the world about the pandemic. 

She claimed that she was in Wuhan to investigate the Pneumonia outbreak, but stumbled upon information about the deadly virus. The Chinese virologist is understood to have tried to alert the authorities but got no response from the World Health Organisation. 

Yan has already published her report and put it out on the internet for the world to access it. The report is titled "Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route".

The coronavirus pandemic killed 833 French people in just 24 hours, making it the nation’s deadliest day since the global outbreak started in China and quickly spread to the rest of the world. Health Minister Olivier Véran warned Monday that despite the tragic figure, France has still not yet seen the worst of the virus, BBC News reported. “We have not reached the end of the ascent of this epidemic,” he said. “We must keep up our efforts as citizens by staying at home." The total number of cases, combining hospital and nursing home statistics, increased by 5,171 between Sunday and Monday to 98,010.
By early Tuesday, the number of infected climbed to 98,984, meaning France wi…

Citing lack of masks and soap, Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez fears Brooklyn federal jail is ‘powder keg of coronavirus infection’

Measures to combat a COVID-19 outbreak inside a federal jail in Brooklyn are woefully inadequate, Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez wrote in a letter Monday, detailing screwups she fears will make the lockup “a potential powder keg of coronavirus infection.” Soap is in short supply at the Metropolitan Detention Center on the Sunset Park waterfront, according to the letter Velazquez sent to the Bureau of Prisons Monday. Yet correctional officers and other staff are prohibited from bringing alcohol-based hand sanitizer or their own face masks to work. Staff are rotated in and out of four housing units in quarantine without adequate protective gear, Velazquez wrote. Correctional officers who go home with COVID-19 symptoms are routinely ordered to return to work “in a couple days,” according to the letter. Meanwhile, the jail holding 1,700 inmates is one of the busiest in the federal system, with 150 or 200 inmates coming or going from the facility per we…

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is making progress in his battle against coronavirus after a brutal week that included shivering so violently that he chipped a tooth. The newsman, brother of Gov. Cuomo, was on “day 11” Monday, marking the time since he first exhibited allergy-like symptoms, his wife, Cristina Cuomo, posted in an update on Instagram. “Many have asked how Chris is doing and what meds he’s taking. Here’s an update,” she said in a post that began with, “Every day is a gift.” “After one week of up and down symptoms — chills, body aches, total exhaustion, sleeplessness, and a fever that hit 103, he is on day 11 today, (day 1 being first day of allergy-like symptoms) — he seems slightly better, but still feels the…
