India, like the rest of the world, is grappling with the ongoing impacts of the Covid-19. The spread of the novel coronavirus in India has quickened in the last few days with new infections are rising rapidly. While India’s Covid-19 case tally crosses 48 lakh mark with a spike of 92,071 new cases and 1,136 deaths reported in the last 24 hours.
The World Health Organization reported a record one-day increase in global coronavirus cases on Sunday, with the total rising by 3,07,930 on Sunday.
A former Chinese virologist from Hong Kong Dr Li-Meng Yan in a stunning revelation has claimed that the coronavirus was created in a government-controlled laboratory in Wuhan, the original epicentre of the outbreak and offered scientific evidence to back her claims.
Dr Li-Meng Yan Makes the stunning revelation
In an interview with ‘Loose Women’, a British talk show, Dr Li-Meng Yan, the scientist said she was assigned to investigate “new pneumonia” in Wuhan. She said that she discovered a cover-up operation regarding coronavirus during her investigation.
Dr Li-Meng, who specialised in virology and immunology at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, said she conducted two research on new pneumonia in China first between December and early January and the second one in mid-January, before fleeing to the US from Hong Kong.
“I decided to report this development to my supervisor, who is also a World Health Organisation (WHO) consultant. There was no response from the WHO and my supervisor. Everyone warned me that do not cross the right line and keep silence or else I would be made to disappear,” she said.
In the chat show, Li-Meng made the stunning revelation that the “virus is not from nature” and it was from a “laboratory controlled by the Chinese government in Wuhan”.
“This is based on the China Military Institute that discovered and owned some bad coronavirus named CC45 and ZXC41. Based on that, after lab modification becomes a novel virus,” she said.
Asked if she had scientific proof about the revelation, Dr Li-Meng said she has intelligence from the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), local doctors and other people across China. “These are the truths and all other things were covered up,” she added. The virologist said she is working on a scientific report with a small group of top scientists across the world and will be published soon.

“There are two reports. The first one will come in several days and it will tell the people all the evidence,” she said, adding that the coronavirus is a highly contagious and a dangerous virus.
Giving an insight into her unpublished scientific report, Dr Li-Meng said anyone, even those who do not have knowledge of biology, can read it.
“The genome sequence is like our human fingerprint. So, based on this you can recognise and identify this thing. So, I used the evidence existing in the genome sequence of Sars-CoV-2 to tell people why this came from China and why they are the only ones who made it,” she stated.
She further said, “You can check, identify and verify it by yourself. It is a critical thing for us to know the origins of the virus. If not, it will be life-threatening for everyone.”
“Covid-19 has brought life to still, while there are clouds of fear all overhead but if China had told the world the truth at the right time, perhaps the outbreak of this deadly virus it could have been controlled in time”, she added.
