Dr. Li-Meng Yan is a Chinese Virologist and a whistleblower who claimed in January 2020 that Coronavirus was created in a laboratory in Wuhan.
Dr. Yan became an MD after graduating from the Xiangya Medical College and earned a PhD from the Southern Medical University.
In December 2019, Dr. Yan was requested to investigate a series of pneumonia cases that had risen in the Wuhan district.
Through her research, Dr. Yan believed that a highly mutated virus was in circulation, ultimately the coronavirus, but was told to stay silent.
She went on to make this information public, but was forced to flee her homeland of China and take up residency in the United States.
Dr. Li-Meng Yan has been widely criticised and discredited by both the Chinese government and the World Health Organisation, as well as having her social media accounts suspended.
