Chinese virologist plans to release proof COVID-19 was made in Wuhan lab
“It comes from the lab — the lab in Wuhan and the lab is controlled by China’s government.”
Legal Insurrection has been following the news related to the Wuhan Coronavirus since early January of this year.
While difficult to find in the midst of China-based, anti-Trump media, reports have surfaced that the pathogen originated in a virology laboratory in Wuhan, China (the epicenter of the pandemic).
Now a Chinese virologist who has reportedly been in hiding for fear of her life says she is planning to share the scientific evidence to prove COVID-19 was man-made in a lab in China.
Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a scientist who says she did some of the earliest research into COVID-19 last year, made the comments Friday during an interview on British talk show “Loose Women.”
When asked where the deadly virus that has killed more than 900,000 around the globe comes from, Yan — speaking via video chat from a secret location — replied, “It comes from the lab — the lab in Wuhan and the lab is controlled by China’s government.”
She insisted that widespread reports that the virus originated last year from a wet market in Wuhan, China, are “a smokescreen.”
I recall the initial Chinese efforts to contain the virus. They were a mixture of panic, stage-craft, and distraction. It could be argued that they were designed to scare the people of Wuhan out of the country, to spread the virus around the globe.
Yan indicates that her life and her work were erased from official Chinese records.
She claimed that ahead of fleeing her country, her information was wiped from government databases and that her peers were ‘told to spread rumours about her’.
‘This is some common sense for Chinese people’, she said. ‘We know under Chinese government [they are at risk]
‘They deleted all my information and also they told people to spread rumours about me, that I’m a liar, I don’t know anything, I just killed a hamster in the lab. They will try to control my family and friends and then suddenly I don’t exist.’
Yan was one of the first to recognize the potential for human-to-human transmission.
Dr. Yan worked at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, specializing in virology and immunology. The university is one of the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) global epidemiology network and the world’s leading centers for infectious disease research.
Since she speaks Mandarin, she was assigned to research in China and looked into the odd cluster of SARS-like cases. She claimed to have found evidence about human transmission and she immediately advised her supervisors about her findings. However, her bosses ignored her research, which could have saved lives. They even tried to silence her because they were worried.
“So I kept silent,” Dr. Yan said. However, she knew she had to expose the situation which she deemed urgent. With the help of a famous U.S.-based Chinese YouTuber, she exposed how the Chinese government already knew about the human-to-human transmission of the coronavirus even before reports emerged.

Once again, the first wild-assed report was correct. That is why I am not that concerned about my tendency to “jump the gun”. I am right far more often than not. It takes time to squelch the early testimony from the various sources. Careers have to be threatened, people killed and imprisoned, population misinformed by the media with the usual “conspiracy theorist!” accusations, etc…
The very first source way back when were obviously credible. But then, I risk nothing by jumping the gun. I am not a journalist, just a troll on a blog comment thread.
Many a truth is told in jest.
What is that old Jewish saying?
In a little wine and out a lot of government covered up truth?
Want to hear the latest coronavirus joke?
I would tell you but I’m afraid you’d spread it around!
Look at those vials in the Wuhan Chinese virus lab.
They say funded by the DNC!
Close. Fauci approved a $3.7m NIH grant to that lab in 2013. I’m sure he is proud and wants as many people as possible to know about it.
The money was to underwrite ‘Gain of Function’ research. Where you modify a virus to add new characteristics. Supposedly, this is to help develop vaccines against the virus. But, it sounds a lot like Andromeda Strain research to me.
Twitter Suspends Account Of Chinese Scientist Who Published Paper Alleging Covid Was Created In Wuhan Lab
What’s the time frame for her disappearance, airplane crash, or heart attack?
Not happening unless she has dirt on the Clintons.
IMHO, this flu was part of the China/Swamp Rats plan to get their Manchurian Horse elected. How could the Clintons NOT be involved?
To my eyes, this it is definitely possible but unproven.
Let’s not get suckered into what could be a publicity stunt, the individual worked in HK not Wuhan. OTOH, virology is a small world and scientists in that field know each others; they have to collaborate as the work is quite difficult. She may have enough knowledge of goings on in Wuhan to know rather than guess it was a lab release.
For us, with little to zero knowledge of virology and no contacts at WIV, it is foolish to speculate.
A publicity stunt? With all of the early reports of specific Chinese scientists stealing virus samples from a specific lab in Canada, specific Chinese scientists from that Wuhan lab arrested and then dying in captivity, Chinese scientists being rounded up and disappearing, Chinese students working in US labs while on visas being kicked out of the country….?????
So if it’s a publicity stunt and we believe it, who gets hurt? At some point, when it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, that’s good enough. We don’t need a lawyer warning us to “not jump the gun”. Geez.
A publicity stunt? Why in the world would she do this simply as a publicity stunt when it almost assuredly has led to a death sentence imposed on her if she can be found and returned to China. Pres. Winnie Jinping and the CCP freaked out when the virus was called the “Chinese virus”. What the hell do you think is going to happen to this woman who is accusing the CCP of actually creating the virus that has killed 900,000 people worldwide.
If her claims stood alone, I would agree. But there is lots of evidence that CCP intentionally spread the virus internationally, while limiting spread in China, and that they have systematically conspired to profit from it. There is way too much incriminating evidence.
I think that we, the world, should strangle China’s economy until CCP is overthrown. When all of CCP has been squashed like bugs, then we can look at trying to help the Chinese recover.
Of all sad words of CNN, the saddest are these..
“Trump’s right again.”
Troll level – Grandmaster
Darn… US consumer… “Do we seriously face China or do I still want that flat screen at the lower price than Samsung?”
The list of strange presentations for this supposedly “natural” virus expands. JAMA…. right-sided neck adenopathy is a presentation of Wuhan. Then we have the vascular and neurological issues… and finally… what about the potential syndromes in the years ahead for those exposed?
CCP should get the first even Nobel Non-Peace prize. I would say “Pox upon them” but I’d settle for an Ebola/Marburg variant selective to Marxist mentalities.
Having had the virus, and a fairly bad experience with it, I can tell you it was the worst experience of “sick” I ever had, and the longest-lasting (measured by fever). However, nothing was particularly strange about the presentation vs. the flu, etc…, it was just an exceptionally bad and long-lasting “cold” with nasty GI symptoms, at least for me. I have wondered if some of these one-off symptoms are just person-specific and not attributable to the virus.
“potential syndromes in the years ahead for those exposed?” – speculation – nothing more.
Not provable or refutable and could apply to a number of minor cold infections that come and go. Just because we are putting full attention (and then some) on this virus and not the after-effects of some rhinovirus once considered innocuous does not mean those do not occur as well. In fact the vaunted cardio inflammation reported in covid patients is in fact noted in a substantial number of other viral infections.
If we lived in the day and age of Smallpox this wouldn’t even be a blip on the radar….
I’m pretty sure that I had it, too, particularly after reading Stacey’s post about it. I had a horrible few weeks of a weird cough with no sore throat or other cold-like symptoms (no mucus, etc.), and I was absolutely fatigued, sleeping a crazy number of hours (which is weird for me since I am a long-time insomniac).
I wasn’t going near the hospital at the time (this was before we had a handle on how much the left was hyping the whole thing for political gain); I’m already high risk due to heart issues and associated stuff (high blood pressure, blah blah blah), and I figured going to the WuFlu Hotel would not be good for me . . . unless or until I felt that I was unable to breathe or otherwise felt my life was threatened.
After a while, the weird cough went away, then slowly, I began to be less fatigued, though I still tired easily (like just frying an egg would make me want to nap for hours), but that, too, passed. I have no idea why I had such a mild case, but I was drinking a lot of oregano tea (black tea, milk, honey, oregano powder), popping benedryl to keep my airways clear (which probably contributed to my sleeping, though not the fatigue), and sipping tonic water (with quinine–you have to check, they actually make tonic water that doesn’t have any quinine at all). I also took a daily vitamin (which I don’t usually) and a zinc supplement. I also had some throat lozenges that contain zinc. They didn’t help in terms of that weird cough, but the zinc may have been helpful.
I believe I had it, but I can’t prove it and have no interest in doing so. I suspect that a lot of people have had the same experience, and even those who are high risk, like me, survived just fine without going near a doctor/hospital.
All that said, I was never tested, but I’m pretty sure that I had the WuFlu. I’ve been sick plenty, including the “regular” seasonal flu, but that was definitely different.
When you said “weird” cough, what are you referring to (just curious)? I didn’t have a cough to speak of until the worst symptoms subsided – and they went away abruptly, not over the course of days. But when I inhaled deep, I had upper tracheal pain that lasted a week or so beyond.
I can’t really explain it in other terms, it was just weird. I didn’t really feel a throat tickle, had no mucus, but I had this (there’s that word again) “weird” cough. It would even wake me up, my coughing in my sleep, but I had no real reason to cough that I could tell. I just kept up with the oregano tea (the honey in it coats the throat, so it’s good for coughs, even “weird” ones) and those zinc lozenges, though they didn’t really help with that cough. I just coughed a lot and didn’t really think I needed to, but my body did it anyway. I wish I could explain it better.
I never had any upper tracheal pain, though the back of my throat was sore (from the weird, not-needed coughing).
I may have had it, but it was early and not really on the radar, being late January. I’ve rarely had the flu, and when I’ve had it it is a 2 day affair. This lasted two weeks and I felt like crap the whole time. But I was working 12 hours a day on a project that was not cooperating, and thought the long hours were the reason for the exceptional length and symptoms.
I’ve given blood and had the antibody tests as a result with no detection of the chinaVirus. But it was several months later, so meaningless.
Oh, and just for the record I’m 67. So, at risk. But no health problems at all.
I think that a lot of us had it, Barry, and we are all still alive and well. I think it’s time to open the darn country. I’m so sick of the “let’s lockdown until Nov 3” and “gee, let’s see about opening after the election” crap. It’s so transparent that the Democrats are trying to play this against President Trump.
I’m with you Fuzzy. I’ve always been opposed to lockdowns except in the most effected area’s such as NYC. Here in the state of NC, THE university is online schooling as is NC State. Public schools across the sate are online in many area’s – and we still to this day do not have a death of an under 25 person in the entire state. Over half our deaths are congregate living deaths and 80% of the deaths are over age 65.
The commie governor has us shutdown and mask mandates for political reasons, nothing more.
““potential syndromes in the years ahead for those exposed?” – speculation – nothing more.”
I am surprised that you do not understand that many people who survive China’s virus will suffer life long, and likely a shorter lives.
I’ve heard this, but nobody defines “many”.
Well why don’t you explain it to us then?
I’d ask you to share the statistics but I know you can’t – there aren’t any to share.
Like the cold virus and the flu virus, a few people will suffer from abnormal effects. It happens with colds and flu.
You can’t share information because it is so rare it is not kept.
What? You haven’t looted your flat screen television yet?
can’t remember when I posted it but I had said earlier on was manmade and most odds were released on purpose.
Same here. There sure was a lot of evidence at the very start before the usual media clamp down. I’m half-expecting the DOJ to launch an investigation.
” I’m half-expecting the DOJ to launch an investigation. ”
That cracks me up. LoL
Sorry, but I have to channel Hillary: “what difference, at this point, does it make?” Wake me when any of this forces China to pay reparations for damaged fortunes and dead grandmothers. I’m pretty confident I won’t be missing out on any beauty sleep.
Early on, some questioned the safety of locating a lab in a densely-populated urban area. I said that the lab’s location made sense only because of the nearby wet market, so that the wet market could be used to provide plausible deniability in the event of the escape or release of a pathogen from the facility.
But even if lab-made, that would only mean the Chinese were experimenting with the virus. Being lab-made would not rule out an escape, nor would it necessarily infer a release.
If you had a lab in Wuhan, and intended to intentionally release a virus created in your lab, would you release it in Wuhan, and bring the world’s attention to your doorstep? Probably not. If you were smart, you’d release it in another city’s wet market, or in multiple locations at once to confuse the situation. (I know I would. Or I’d release it in a place like Hong Kong. Shut down the protests and infect the rest of the world with a single act. The CCP would give me a medal.) Doing otherwise would be stupid.
Because of this I believe that if this virus comes from the Wuhan lab, whether created or natural in origin, it’s an escape, not a release. There are smarter ways to release a bio-weapon like this, giving both more deniability and better results.
I agree 100%. The Chinese could not have called more unwanted attention to themselves if they had deliberately undertaken a worldwide publicity campaign.
Furthermore, as a “super weapon” the Wuflu seems to be a dud comparable to a bad case of the flu. What caused such widespread infection and loss of life the US was the lunatic decisions of some blue states like NY to (1) downplay or ignore the pandemic in the early stages as “RethugiKKKan racism”, (2) turn nursing homes into killing fields by forcing them to take sick patients, and (3) encourage Antifa/BLM to flout these same states’ sacred and holy public health measures.
location is good for a controlled test though. but if the test went out of control….here you are.
yeah its pure opinion, just as likely to be wrong, but never assume good intention with human hubris.
The flu escaped (or was intentionally released) from the Wuhan lab. The CCP immediately banned domestic travel to/from Wuhan and imposed a quarantine on Wuhan but everyone was still allowed to travel abroad. THAT is how Trump concluded that this was an intentional attack on the West and being a racist, banned all travel with China.
Coronavirus has a short life cycle and naturally high mutation rate. Arguments were that there was no evidence of genetic engineering, but there is old fashioned selective breeding. And that is likely what they were doing.
In the end, as far as I am concerned, there is no acceptable excuse for what happened, their after the release actions are damning.
I tend to agree with you. My speculation is that some CCP official was “too busy” or “too important” to go thru the sterilization protocols while visiting the lab, and tracked it out that way. A simple explanation usually has merit.
I used to work for a company that had significant manufacturing presence in China and a large number of Chinese engineers. I tend to agree with the “escape” scenario because my experience at the Chinese factories and the Chinese employees was that while they may have been technically competent, they were shockingly indifferent to any kind of standards, policies, or procedures, especially anything safety-based. The notion that the corners they cut might cause inconvenience, injury or death to someone downstream simply didn’t slow them for one second. They didn’t care. Combine that with the “little emperor” syndrome and it was like narcissistic sociopathy writ large.
If it were an deliberate release it would have been more effective, more targeted, and served the CCP purposes more efficiently. Some arrogant SOB ignoring all the Level 4 protocols because he thinks the rules don’t apply to him is exactly what this looks like to me.
If you google images for “wuhan lab workers” today, the web is full of photos of unidentifiable people dressed like bright, shiny astronauts. But when this whole mess started, this was a sample of the photos at the lab’s own website, showing the amateurish safety protocols in place — photos which (of course) have mysteriously vanishedM/a> not just from their website, but from much of the web as well.

Sorry guys, no edit function, and the preview button doesn’t do anything for me.
Yep, I said from the beginning it was man made, by the chicoms, and the only question is was it released on purpose or accidentally.
On purpose fits with everything we know.
As I observed awhile ago, bats are not sold in the Wuhan wet market, and the bat from which the Wu flu could have come is not native to Wuhan. That type of bat, though, is found in the virology labs in Wuhan. So from where could this flu have arisen? Take a guess.
Very brave lady. Soon to be very brave LATE lady if the CCP has something to say about it.
Or the C-O-B Globalists…..
I can only imagine what they will release next on us
Maybe a virus more specific to the young, how horrible they are… these monsters
the dr-wife-biden/hillary-clinton/michelle-obama chimera.
How long will it be before our space force is ready to rest controlled asteroid reentry?
Meh. We already proved we could hit Australia with Spacelab.
She’s been saying this for two months. Stop acting like the DOJ and actually do it.
Are there any updates on this?
‘Rogue’ Chinese Virologist Joins Twitter, Publishes “Smoking Gun” Evidence COVID-19 Created In Lab – Zero Hedge
How shocking! Of course we’ve know this since the beginning.
It doesn’t really matter if the Wuhan virus was created or grown in a lab or came from the wild. The fact is that when the communist Chinese thought they had a serious pathogen on their hands they intentionally infected the world – the West mostly, and America, in particular. INTENTIONALLY!!
It was a clear act of war. They shut off all travel in and out of Wuhan within China but kept international travel in and out of Wuhan flowing – and even went so far as to scream “raaacissssm!!!!” to any nation that put travel restrictions on China. They intentionally let infected people leave wuhan to act as bio-terror guided missiles and let people from outside come in to Wuhan to get infected and take it back with them. It was one of the worst sneak attacks in history, and it was a bio-attack, which really calls for a nuclear response. Seriously.
Where the Wuhan virus actually came from and how it initially got into the CHinese population matters not in the least. It’s what the commies did with the virus once they knew they had it in their population – and that is without any doubt and it was a clear Act of War against us. ACT OF WAR.
Just say’n – Teddy already set the precedent. This was just round 2, with Nancy.
Both the Dems and Xi had been losing. Bigly. This fixed their problems.
