A virologist who claimed the Chinese government covered up the coronavirus outbreak says she will produce scientific evidence the virus was man-made.
Respected Chinese virologist Dr Li-Meng Yan, who specialised in virology and immunology at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, claimed that Beijing knew about the coronavirus well before reports began to emerge.
She has since been forced to flee Hong Kong fearing her life is in danger, and appeared today on Loose Women from a secret location, revealing that the Chinese government had 'removed all her information' from government data bases.
Dr Yan claimed that reports that Covid-19 originated at a wet market in Wuhan are a 'smoke screen', and that she plans to publish a report she claims has evidence the virus is manmade.
'The first thing is the meat market in Wuhan is a smoke screen and this virus is not from nature,' Dr Yan said.
When asked where the virus comes from, the scientist replied: 'It comes from the lab in Wuhan.'
'The genome sequence is like a human finger print', she said. '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.
'Anyone, even if you have no biology knowledge, will be able to read it, and check and identify and verify it yourself.
