CHINA: Dr. Li Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist, has praised the United States for acknowledging that COVID-19 most likely originated from a lab leak in Wuhan, China.
Yan had rung the first alarm bell on the theory of a COVID-19 lab leak as early as 2020.
She had accused the Chinese Communist Party of intentionally manufacturing and releasing the COVID-19 virus into the world, which led to lockdowns and deaths worldwide.
In an interview with FOX News, Yan argued that the lab leak was not an accident, based on her experience working at a research lab using coronavirus.
She further explained that it would have been impossible for the lab leak to accidentally happen in such a lab and cause the Wuhan outbreak and the pandemic.
Yan based her argument on evidence she sourced after studying and speaking to several people who said the virus was “intentionally brought out of this strict lab and released in the community.”
Dr. Yan made the shocking revelation in September 2020 that the virus originated from a government-controlled lab in Wuhan when the entire world was reeling under the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.
She said she was assigned to investigate a “new pneumonia” in Wuhan, where she discovered a cover-up operation on a coronavirus.
The US Energy Department recently released a classified intelligence report that confirmed that the COVID-19 virus most likely originated from a lab leak.
The team later gave their findings to the White House and key members of Congress.
Yan called the report a “milestone achievement,” but he was criticised and told to shut up.
The acknowledgement of the lab leak theory by the US Energy Department is a significant development in the ongoing debate over the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It has also brought back calls for more research into where the virus came from and for those responsible to be held accountable.
