Virologist Says COVID-19 Created in Lab Based on Genome Evidence


Hong Kong's 'Whistleblower' Dr Li-Meng Yan joins Tucker Carlson with an insight into 'Tucker Carlson Tonight.  

Facebook & Twitter have since censored this interview (according to Zero Hedge). 

A Chinese virologist and whistleblower on Monday (Sept. 14) followed through on her pledge to release a paper explaining how the genome of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) indicates that it was constructed in a Chinese lab rather than naturally occurring.

Yan released the report on the data platform Zenodo with the title "Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route." Zenodo is a general open access repository developed under the European OpenAIRE project and operated by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), allowing researchers to store data, software, reports, and any research-related tools.

The paper pointed out that the biological characteristics of SARS-CoV-2 are not consistent with a naturally occurring zoonotic virus. The researchers assert that the genomic, structural, medical, and literaty evidence presented in the paper strongly contradicts the natural origin theory.

'The Chinese government purposely engineered and unleashed the COVID-19 virus that resulted in worldwide mass shutdowns and deaths, a top virologist and whistleblower told Fox News host Tucker Carlson Tuesday. Yan said further information will be released but referred to her own high-ranking role in a research lab for the World Health Organization as a justification for believing her claim.

"I worked 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 coronavirus virologist in the world," she said.

Yan's remarks were in contrast with the opinion of Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and advisor on coronavirus in the White House, who had previously cast doubt on the notion that the virus was developed artificially. He told National Geographic in May: "When you look at the evolution of the virus in bats, then what's out there now is very, very strongly leaning towards that [virus] could not have been engineered intentionally or deliberately — the way the mutations developed naturally."

Her findings fuelled growing concerns that the Chinese government had neglected to warn the world about the danger of the virus early on. In particular, she claims the Chinese government has neglected research that could save lives. The State Department did not respond immediately to a request for comment from Fox News.

His former employer, Hong Kong University, attacked her account in response. A press release noted that "the substance of the above news article does not adhere to the core facts we understand."

Yan, who said she was one of the world's first scientists to research the novel coronavirus, has fled China and is now fearing retribution. In 2019, her boss at the University / WHO reference laboratory, Dr. Leo Poon, allegedly asked her to look into the unusual cluster of SARS-like cases coming out of mainland China at the end of December 2019.

Dr Li-Meng Yan was already working at a certain Hong Kong School of Public Health before the actual start of the whole COVID-19 pandemic. She then turned into a whistleblower herself on the entire Chinese government after she alleged that they already knew about the fact of coronavirus spread even before the dangerous outbreak was officially recognized.

Dr. Yan then said she had to escape to the US for her own safety and is now determined to talk to the whole world about her findings.

Dr. Yan also alleged that the White House health advisor known as Dr. Fauci probably knew even more than her about how they approved the previous gain-of-function study results to (fund) the specific Chinese laboratories that were under the jurisdiction of the CCP as a whole.

She said Dr. Fauci had more information than her and was also more invested in the whole project. A previous article by Newsweek has actually published that stated allegations that Dr. Fauci was actually funding the coronavirus with the use of US dollars!

The gain-of-function or GOF research, which was previously written about all the way back in July, is the actual euphemism for the whole government-sponsored biological research that was conducted for biodefense purposes and also aimed at increasing the virulence and also the lethality of the pathogens and the viruses.

After a month of the interview, Dr. Yan said she had proof that the COVID-19 was actually created in the known Wuhan laboratory. She also said she plans to release the current evidence showing that the COVID-19 did not emerge in nature but was in fact developed in the very Wuhan Virology Institute itself.

During the recent interview, Dr. Yan confirmed that she certainly intends to release the evidence showing why the coronavirus came from China's established laboratory and why they're really the only ones who did it.

In Part 1 of the paper, the scientists provide evidence that the SARS-CoV-2 was subjected to in vitro manipulation. First, it states that the genomic sequence of the virus is strikingly similar to that of a bat coronavirus found by People's Liberation Army (PLA) labs in the Third Military Medical University in Chongqing, China, and the Research Institute for Medicine of Nanjing Command in Nanjing, China.

Second, it shows that the receptor-binding motif (RBM) found in the virus's notorious spike protein is "suspiciously" similar to SARS-CoV from the 2003 SARS outbreak, indicating it was genetically modified. Third, the spike protein of the virus contains a unique furin cleavage site that is "completely absent in this particular class of coronaviruses found in nature," while the rare codons seen in this sequence suggest that it could have been inserted into the genome artificially

Regarding the "Zhoushan bat virus," the team wrote that ZC45 and ZXC2 have the highest sequence identity with SARS-CoV-2. In terms of similarity between ZC45/ZXC2 and SARS-CoV-2, the genome is 97 percent identical, the nucleocapsid protein is 94 percent identical, the membrane protein is 98.6 percent identical, and the S2 portion (2nd half) of the spike protein is 95 percent identical.
