Chinese Scientists Create Man-Made Virus — China in Focus

Coronavirus outbreak: Chinese virologist claims it was lab created

While the exact cause of the move remains unknown, many people immediately guessed it was because of her publication with some of them accusing Twitter of "covering for" the Chinese Communist Party. "They don't want you sharing the video, and they are limiting the number of people who can view it".

It was, like Yan's, uploaded to an unregulated website called OSF, which is a data-sharing online storage center operated by the Open Science Foundation, which offers a variety of tools and services to assist in the research process, but does not appear to review the merit of items uploaded. Yan said more evidence would be released but pointed to her own high-ranking position at a World Health Organization reference lab as a reason to trust her allegation.

The ex-Hong Kong University scientist said she worked on Human-to-Human transmission research on coronavirus.

Twitter has suspended the social media account of the Chinese virologist who claimed that coronavirus was developed in a Wuhan laboratory.

Dr Yan, a former analysis specialist at Hong Kong's Faculty of Public Well being, stated her supervisor first requested her to research a brand new "SARS-like" virus in Wuhan on December 31 - however that her efforts have been later stifled.

Either late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning, Twitter reportedly suspended an account purportedly belonging to Yan for violating Twitter rules and regulations.

The description also adds that "a result, Dr Li claims she had to flee to the United States for her own safety and is now determined to spread her findings to the world".

'SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring virus, ' she wrote.

Li-Meng Yan, the Chinese Virologist who claimed that COVID19 is a man-made virus, is facing the ire of Twitter.

Some members of the Trump administration have pushed a fringe theory that the virus accidentally leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China, but there's no evidence of this.

So far, Twitter has not commented on the suspension of Yan's account.

However, The Chinese National Health Commission, World Health Organisation and University Of Hong Kong have disputed her claims, according to The Sun.

Bannon, who describes himself as an "ultra-hawk" on China, earlier claimed to have "shocking" evidence proving the virus originated in the Wuhan lab and the Chinese Communist Party had a hand in it, while citing evidence from some Chinese scientists who "defected" to the US.

Lead Stories reached out to Yan on September 16, 2020, for a list of reputable science journals that have refused publication of her article and will revise this report with that list, if appropriate, when Yan replies.

Dr. Yan secretly traveled to the USA in April.

Guo fled China for NY in 2014 after the Chinese Communist Party accused him of bribery and fraud.

"We will get in trouble and we'll be disappeared", is what was allegedly told to her.
