A Chinese whistleblower claims she has proof that the coronavirus was created in a lab in Wuhan – after previously claiming Beijing had covered up the outbreak.
Dr Li Meng-Yan, who is a researcher at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, says she was among the first to study the deadly virus when it first emerged last year.
Speaking on ITV’s Loose Women, the scientist explained that she was warned by bosses to “keep silent and be careful” when Covid cases began to spiral out of control in mainland China.
And she claims a supervisor even told her “we will get in trouble” if they spoke out over the deadly virus.
Dr Meng-Yan featured on Loose Women on Friday where she offered even more information about the virus.
She said: "The genome sequence is like a human fingerprint. Based on this you can identify these things.
“I will (use this) evidence to tell people why this has come from the lab in China, why they are the ones who made it.

"Anyone, even if you have no biology knowledge, will be able to read it, and check and identify and verify it yourself."
Dr Meng-Yan escaped to the USA from Hony Kong earlier this year amid allegations that Beijing had attempted to silence her.
She had previously suggested the virus had escaped from a People's Liberation Army (PLA) facility.
She explained that Chinese authorities had tried to discredit her before she had even escaped China to tell her version of events.

She claimed: “They deleted all my information and also they told people to spread rumours about me.
"That I'm a liar, I don't know anything, I just killed a hamster in the lab.
“They will try to control my family and friends and then suddenly I don't exist."
