A Chinese virologist claiming to have been man-made proof of COVID-19 has revealed her alleged proofs.
Dr Li-Meng Yan, a scientist who has performed some of the earliest coronavirus studies, posted her statements publicly on Zenodo’s open-access repository website.
She writes that COVID-19 could be produced “conveniently” within six months in a laboratory environment.
Her report claims to note how ““SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring, zoonotic virus”.
The earliest evidence of coronavirus origin occurred in a wet market.
“In this report, we describe the genomic, structural, medical, and literature evidence, which, when considered together, strongly contradicts the natural origin theory,” the report’s hypothesis reads.
Yan first made the claim that the wet market origin story was a “smokescreen” on a British talk show.
“It comes from the lab, the lab in Wuhan and the lab is controlled by China’s government,” she said, citing her source as “local doctors”.
“The first thing is the market in Wuhan … is a smokescreen. This virus is not from nature.”
China has stated repeatedly that COVID-19 could not have originated from Asia at all.
Chinese health officials pointed the finger at Spain in July, saying wastewater tests there in March 2019 found signs of the virus.
