A Chinese virologist Dr. Li Meng Yan has made the assertion that the COVID-19 virus was intentionally created and released by the government of China.

She had made the same claims in September 2020, during an interview with “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

On Monday, she reiterated that she still believed that the virus was deliberately released nearly three years after the outbreak began.

“Of course, it was not an accident,” she responded to Carlson.

A classified intelligence report states China intentionally released COVID-19

Recently, a classified intelligence report from the Energy Department concluded that the virus most likely originated in a Chinese laboratory.

This prompted the Chinese virologist who previously warned about the virus’s origin in early 2020 to state that the U.S. had achieved a significant milestone.

“Maybe for people who don’t have this kind of biosafety lab three or four [years] experience on coronavirus, maybe it’s easy for them to accept the accident lab leak. However, I’m a scientist, working in [a] research lab using coronavirus.

And I can tell you, based on the print protocol and also the other surveillance system, it would be impossible for the lab leak [to] accidentally happen in such [a] lab and cause the Wuhan outbreak and also the pandemic,” Yan said.

“So definitely now we just reached the first step. It was from China’s lab, and we need to pursue the truth of origin, and we need to keep going on,” the Chinese virologist added.

According to Tucker Carlson, the Chinese government purposely released COVID-19 with the intention of crippling Western economies and strengthening their own global standing.

Dr. Yan, however, claimed that based on the information and sources she had access to, the virus was deliberately taken out of a high-security laboratory and introduced into the community.

Why did Yan leave China?

Before fleeing Hong Kong in April 2020, Dr. Li Meng Yan was a well-respected specialist in virology and immunology at the Hong Kong School of Public Health.

Her decision to leave was prompted by her investigation into the increasing number of cases in mainland China that indicated human-to-human transmission of the virus.

Yan claims that she shared her findings with her supervisor on January 16, but he allegedly advised her to remain silent and be cautious.
