Six months after she fled Hong Kong, Chinese virologist Dr. Li-Meng Yan broke her silence Tuesday night saying that the Chinese government intentionally manufactured and released the COVID-19 virus that led to mass shutdowns and deaths across the world.
Dr. Li-Meng Yan said she believes China knew about the coronavirus well before it claimed it did. She says her supervisors also ignored research she was doing that she believes could have saved lives. Dr. Yan went on to say that COVID-19 is man-made and that the virus was created by the Chinese military.
“I work[ed] in the WHO reference lab which is the top coronavirus lab in the world, in the University of Hong Kong. And the thing is I get deeply into such investigation in secret from the early beginning of this outbreak. I had my intelligence because I also get my own unit network in China, involved [in] the hospital … also I work with the top corona[virus] virologist in the world,” Dr. Yan told Fox News host Tucker Carlson in an exclusive interview on Tuesday night
When asked whether she believed the Chinese communist party released the virus “on purpose.” “Yes, of course, it’s intentionally,” she responded.
Yan said more evidence would be released but pointed to her own high-ranking position at a WHO reference lab as a reason to trust her allegation.
