On the heels of a bombshell report by the US government that again lent credence to the idea that the COVID-19 pandemic began with a laboratory leak of the virus, a Chinese virologist is now dropping the mother of all coronavirus bombshells.
COVID-19’s spread was seen by many medical experts as extraordinary, traversing the globe in weeks despite serious efforts to curtail the virus once it reached Europe. China, where the first outbreak began just miles from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, wasn’t all that forthcoming with information regarding the crisis, at times appearing to downplay the severity of COVID-19 and leaving the rest of the world unaware of just what was coming their way.
Some pundits even suggested that this was a purposeful misdirection in order for China to take passive advantage of the situation.
This week a Chinese virologist threw more fuel on the conspiratorial fire, with a claim that could see the world order rocked to its core.
A Chinese virologist who sounded the alarm in early 2020 about where the coronavirus came from said Monday the U.S. has reached a “milestone achievement” after a classified intelligence report from the Energy Department reportedly found the virus most likely originated in a Chinese lab.
Host Tucker Carlson asked Yan on Monday if she still believes the virus was intentionally released nearly three years after the pandemic started.
Yan was not ambiguous in her answer.
“Of course, it was not an accident,” she responded.
“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.”
If Yan’s claims can be corroborated, there is no telling just what sort of global recompense Beijing will be facing.
