Article, which is called «Unusual features of the SARS-CoV-2 genome, suggesting complex laboratory modifications, rather than natural evolution and the determination of its probable synthetic pathway “, while not reviewed not a single scientific journal.
The author of the article claims to note that «SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics incompatible with naturally occurring zoonotic virus. ”
Yan’s article comes after an interview she did on a UK talk show «Free women “on Friday, in which she reiterated her claims that the coronavirus «comes from a laboratory – a laboratory in Wuhan, and the laboratory is controlled by the Chinese government. ”
She insisted that widespread reports that the virus originated in the Wuhan market last year are «smoke screen “.
«The data indicates that SARS-CoV-2 should be a laboratory product created using ZC45 and / or ZXC21 bat coronaviruses as a template and / or base. Based on the evidence, we further postulate a synthetic route of infection with SARS-CoV-2, demonstrating that laboratory creation of this coronavirus is convenient and can be completed in about six months, ”Li-Meng Yan emphasized in her article.
Yan reportedly fled Hong Kong to America in April to «raise awareness ”about the pandemic. She is said to have been hiding out of fear for her safety.
Yan said her former executives at the Hong Kong School of Public Health «silenced her ”when she sounded the alarm about human-to-human transmission in December last year.
She also claimed that her information was erased from government databases before fleeing China.
The lab denied that Yan had ever «has done any research on human-to-human transmission of the virus, ”and said that her statements «have no scientific basis. ”
Previously NV wrote that researchers from two American universities – Columbia University in New York and Tulane University in New Orleans – and the University of Sydney in Australia published the results of a sensational study.
They argue that the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, originated and developed to its current state in a purely evolutionary way.
Accordingly, tales of the laboratory origin of the coronavirus and the conspiracy (whether China versus the whole world, or the West versus China – depends on the specific conspiracy theory) have no foundation.
Scientists analyzed the structure of the virus and found no signs of editing that would have been required to create it.
