Li-Meng Yan has been making headlines as the Chinese virologist who recently claimed that the SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19 was actually made within a lab in Wuhan and that the Chinese government themselves along with certain high-profile individuals like Dr. Faun were fully aware of this happening.
Yan's own hometown, which she cannot go back to, is in Qingdao. She received her MD degree from the esteemed Xiangya Medical College of the Central South University. She then earned her own PhD from the Southern Medical University.
Her own personal research includes the certain study of The inhibition effect of propranolol on the corneal neovascularization in an alkali-induced injury mouse model and also the challenges in actually developing a particular universal influenza vaccine.

COVID-19 Whistleblower Dr. Li-Meng Yan Credibility Check: Background, Other Coronavirus Papers She Co-Authored, and MORE!
Li-Meng Yan's working background
At the time of the whole COVID-19 pandemic, she was actually employed at the known Hong Kong School of Public Health or the University of Hong Kong where she was conducting her research that was specialized in both virology and immunology.
Dr. Li-Meng Yan also claims that she was indeed amongst the first scientists of the entire world to actually study the whole coronavirus outbreak that happened in Wuhan, after Leo Poon, her own supervisor at the University of Hong Kong, requested her to take a look into a whole cluster of certain SARS-like cases sometime in December 2019 in Wuhan itself.
As reported by Fox News, Li-Meng Yan still maintained a rather extensive network with other medical professionals coming from mainland China, one of them actually told Yan about the whole human-to-human transmission of the COVID-19 disease back in December 31, 2019. She then reported her findings to her superiors several times but was told to be "silent and careful" about those findings.
Publications about the coronavirus
Li-Meng also co-authored a paper known as the Pathogenesis and transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in golden hamsters in Nature in May 2020. This paper focused on the transmission of the known virus in actual hamsters. The paper was also co-authored by her former colleagues coming from the HKU.
She also co-authored another paper titled the Viral dynamics in mild and severe cases of COVID-19 in the known The Lancet back in March of 2020. This publication talked about the viral shedding patterns that they were able to observe in certain patients with severe all the way to mild COVID-19.
Li-Meng Yan is famous for stating that the Chinese government actually knew about the coronavirus before it was publicly spread. She also accused her own supervisors that included Malik Peiris and Leo Poon of ignoring her own research when it could have helped them get ahead.
Yan is now in the United States where she arrived on April 28 with the strong intention of delivering "the truth of COVID-19" saying that she was unable to tell her story in China due to it being unsafe and that she could be "disappeared and killed".
