Yan, a Chinese virologist, was working at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, was studying pneumonia in Wuhan. She has claimed in a video interview that the coronavirus was not natural as was lab-made and that she has scientific proof of the same. The virus emerging from the wet market of Wuhan is just a cover-up.
She had warned the Chinese officials regarding the catastrophic effect the virus can bring to the world, but all in vain. The lab, in which the virus was made, was owned by the Chinese Government. She said to save her life; she flees to the US, where she is currently hidden for her safety.
It is not the first time that such an incident has happened in history. In 1977, a Russian Laboratory while developing a vaccine for flu, unintentionally free the extinct H1N1 infection virus which lead to becoming a worldwide pandemic virus. As per the reports, since the check of the SARS outbreak in 2003, six SARS disease outbreaks have originated from Research Laboratories, out of which four originated from China.
