Srinagar, Sept 16: Twitter has suspended the account of a Chinese virologist who has claimed that COVID-19 was manufactured in a laboratory.
Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a former researcher at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, went dark on the platform after she accused China of covering up evidence that the deadly virus came from a lab in Wuhan.
“They don’t want the people to know this truth. Also, that’s why I got suspended, I got suppression [and] I am the target that China Communist Part wants to [sic] disappear,” she told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday.
Twitter declined to comment to The Post on Wednesday.
The whistleblower released a paper Monday on the open-access repository website Zenote that she says backs up her claims and shows how the virus could be “conveniently created” in a lab setting in six months.
