Corona Virus made in a Wuhan lab: Chinese virologist

Corona Virus made in a Wuhan lab: Chinese virologist
 

New Delhi, Sep 14 (UNI) A Chinese virologist has said the Corona virus is man-made in a Wuhan laboratory in China and she has proof of that.

The virologist, Dr Li-Meng Yan, who has allegedly fled China, is the second scientist to claim that the corona virus is man-made and created in a Wuhan laboratory. She said she has proof that the SARS-Cov-2 virus is in fact man-made in a Wuhan lab. She did not disclose further.
French Nobel prize winning scientist Luc Montagnier had also claimed in April that the corona virus is man-made and created in a Wuhan laboratory.
Dr Li-Meng Yan, who was working at the Hong Kong School of Public Health when she made the claims, said in a television interview that China knew about the spread of the corona virus before publicly acknowledging it.

She said that while working at Hong Kong’s School of Public Health, her supervisor asked her to investigate a new ‘’SARS-like virus’’ in Wuhan. She reported that the number of cases appeared to be increasing but was told to “keep silent and be careful.”

She also said she has proof that the virus came from a virology lab in the city of Wuhan and not from the animal food market. “The genome sequence is like a human fingerprint,” she said and added that she would use the evidence to tell people that the virus is from the laboratory in China.
Dr Li-Meng said Chinese authorities had begun to discredit her even before she fled the country. “They deleted all my information and told people to spread rumours about me,” she said.
The Chinese National Health Commission and the University of Hong Kong however, refuted her charges.

In December 2019 a Chinese doctor Li Wenliang had warned against a virus that looked like Sars. He was, told by police to “stop making false comments” and was accused of “spreading rumours”. Dr Li later died after contracting the virus while treating patients in Wuhan.
