Chinese virologist says Dr. Fauci’s emails confirm her Wuhan lab leak claims

The Chinese virologist, who was the first to suggest that Covid-19 virus was leaked from a Wuhan lab, said that US top coronavirus advisor Anthony Fauci’s emails prove that she was right throughout. 

A treasure trove of Fauci’s emails hiding the origins of the Covid-19 outbreak was released this week to media under a request of freedom of information.

In one email that was sent last April, an executive at a health charity thanked Fauci for publicly announcing that scientific evidence does not support the lab-leak theory.

New York Post reported that Dr. Li-Meng Yan was one of the first to research the emerging Covid-19 and earlier revealed that she was forced into hiding after accusing Beijing of a cover-up.

Now, that the international leaders finally pay attention on her Wuhan lab-leak theory, the scientist told Newsmax that Fauci’s emails consist “a lot of useful information” suggesting that he always knew more than he disclosed.

“They verify my work from the very beginning, even from last January, that these people know what happened, but they choose to hide for the Chinese Communist Party and for their own benefits,” Yan insisted speaking of the treasure trove of documents released this week.

She claimed that he knows all these things and the supposed gain-of-function work implemented by the now-notorious Wuhan Institute of Virology in the city’s heart where the pandemic first surfaced.

She said one email showed that “Dr. Fauci back to 1 February 2020 realized that there would be gain-of-function experiment involved in the Covid-19 virus.

About 3,000 pages of emails were acquired by the Washington Post, Buzzfeed News and CNN through Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, dated from January to June 2020.

Those emails have instigated debate whether Fauci chose to remain silent despite knowing about the origins of the coronavirus.

The emails have disclosed about the initial days of the US Covid-19 outbreak. Dr Fauci and his colleagues noticed the theory in the initial days that Covid-19 may have leaked from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.

In an interview with CNN, Fauci said that the email had been taken out of context by critics and said he had an “open mind” about the origins of the Covid-19 virus.

Given the “lab leak” email, Fauci told CNN that he still finds it doubtful that a Wuhan laboratory released the Covid-19 virus.

Dr. Fauci added he doesn’t remember what was in that email, but the idea is quite far-fetched that the Chinese purposely engineered something so that they could kill themselves as well as other people.

Amidst the criticism of an ambiguous international inquiry into the origins of the virus and new reports of Covid-related illness in the region weeks before it was officially identified, the theory is once again kindling the debate.
