Dr Li Meng-Yan, a specialist in virology at Hong Kong’s School of Public Health who fled to the US says that she “clearly assessed” that Coronavirus was created in a lab linked to the People’s Liberation Army. However, Beijing have denied the allegations.
Speaking during a live-stream interview with Taiwan News Agency Lude Press, Dr Li-Meng said: “At that time, I had clearly assessed that the virus came from a Chinese Communist Party military lab.
“The Wuhan wet market was just used as a decoy.”
She stressed that when she reported her findings to her superiors, she was not taken seriously and ignored.
At that point, she claimed that it would be impossible for her to report the discovery to the high levels of the Communist Party.
She continued: “I knew that once I spoke up, I could disappear at any time, just like all the brave protesters in Hong Kong.
“I could disappear at any time. Even my name would no longer exist.”
She claimed that it was her responsibility to get the information out before being “disappeared.”
Before speaking out, she fleed to the US in April from Hong Kong fearing for her life.
