Chinese Embassy in SL slams reports

The Chinese Embassy in Sri Lanka yesterday slammed allegations by Chinese virologist Dr Li-Meng Yan who has claimed that the novel coronavirus which has so far claimed hundreds of thousands of lives world over, was made in a government-controlled laboratory in Wuhan and asserted that she has scientific proof to back the claim.

The scientist who was working in Hong Kong claimed that she discovered a cover-up operation during her investigation and said that the Chinese government knew about the spread of the virus before publicly acknowledging it.

Dr Li-Meng, who specialised in virology and immunology at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, was allegedly forced to flee to the United States over safety concerns.
