China cover-up: Beijing scientist promises proof coronavirus made in Wuhan weapons lab

 

Doctor Li Meng-Yan has previously backed claims Beijing tried to silence anyone who attempted to raise the alarm when the virus first broke out in Wuhan last year. In December Doctor Li was tasked with looking into a cluster of virus cases that we now know to be coronavirus. She claims she discovered a cover-up operation and that the Chinese government knew about the spread of the virus before publicly acknowledging the outbreak.

She maintains she has had to flee to the US for her own safety.

She is now living at a secret location within the US.

The virologist claims she was asked to study a cluster of unknown virus cases that were coming out of Wuhan in December.

When she went to Wuhan Doctor Li reported to her supervisor that infections appeared to be rising exponentially there.

The response she received was that she had to "keep silent and be careful".

Her supervisor said: "We will get in trouble and we'll be disappeared."

The doctor then went on to explain how the virus did not come from the wet market in Wuhan but was manmade in a virology institute in the city.

The virologist appeared on ITV's Loose Women and said: "It comes from the lab in Wuhan.

"The genome sequence is like a human fingerprint.

"Based on this you can identify these things.

"I will use this evidence to tell people why this has come from the lab in China, why they are the ones who made it.

"Anyone, even if you have no biology knowledge, will be able to read it, and check and identify and verify it yourself."

Speaking out has come at a cost to Doctor Li and her family.

She spoke of how Chinese authorities would delete, "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."

Cyberattacks on Japan coronavirus vaccine projects point to China
This article highlights how numerous research institutions in Japan, currently working to develop a vaccine for Coronavirus, have been hit by cyberattacks believed to be sent from a Chinese hacker group. The attacks have been happening since April this year, fortunately with no reported information leaks as of yet. Japan’s National Centre of Incident Readiness and Strategy for Cybersecurity continues to urge the country’s research organisations to stay alert and be ready for more incoming attacks aiming to steal confidential information. The article crucially points out that state-led espionage is increasing as governments race to develop effective Coronavirus vaccines.

When the U.S. and China Fight, It Is the Environment That Suffers
This article highlights the evidence behind Trump’s recent criticism of China’s contribution to the global environmental crisis. The piece notes that steel production, coal production and coal consumption have increased in China since 2017 with this looking set to continue as the government aims to re-generate the economy following the Coronavirus pandemic. Despite President Xi Jinping’s recent pledge that China will be carbon neutral by 2060, this article suggests there is no indication that any central measures brought in by the government have sufficiently reduced the country’s pollution levels and emission rates. According to the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air, from June this year the country had greater coal-fuelled capacity planned than the entire current capacity of the USA and India respectively.

Coronavirus: air pollution imporived during China’s lockdowns – and it may have reduced hospital visits
It is a fact – the lockdown in China has resulted in a reduction in air pollution and this in turn has kept many thousands of Chinese people out of hospital with other illnesses. The one ‘benefit’ to the pandemic is it gives scientists the chance to look at what happens to the environment and human health when travel and industry grind to a halt and air pollution is reduced. In China, the health burden is steep where air pollution has caused an estimated 1.24m deaths in 2017. Given such high levels, the lockdown would have been substantial and likely to have a beneficial effect on respiratory health.
