Twitter has blacklisted the account of Chinese virologist Dr. Li-Meng Yan, who claims that coronavirus was manufactured in a laboratory in Wuhan, China.
The New York Post reports that Chinese virologist named Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a former researcher at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, has been suspended from Twitter shortly after giving an interview where she claimed that the coronavirus was manufactured in a laboratory in Wuhan, China.
Speaking with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, Dr. Yan alleged that China was covering up evidence that the virus came from a lab in Wuhan. Dr. Yan told Carlson: “They don’t want the people to know this truth. Also, that’s why I got suspended, I got suppression [and] I am the target that China Communist Part wants to [sic] disappear.”
Carlson replied to Dr. Yan stating: “I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt so I’m going to assume you’re not an anti-Chinese racist so it’s not clear why Twitter would shut you down or why you’re being ignored by the rest of the US media.”
Breitbart News reached out to Twitter for more information, a representative for the social media site stated that Twitter had no comment on the issue. Dr. Yan published a paper on Monday on the open-access repository website Zenote that she claims backs up her claims and details how COVID-19 could be “conveniently created” in a lab setting in six months.
The paper, which features two co-authors, claims to note how “SARS-CoV-2 shows biological characteristics that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring, zoonotic virus.” Beyond this paper, there is not yet scientific evidence and support for her claims.
Many have posted to Twitter questioning the removal of Dr. Yan’s account:
Best as I can tell, per Web Archive Dr. Li-Meng Yan published all of four tweets before seeing her account suspended @Twitter. Tweets concerned Chinese Communist Partys role in the coronavirus, including her allegations regarding its creation. On what grounds did

Chinese Virologist Dr. Li-Meng Yan was suspended from Twitter…
Because she said the Chinese Communist Government created and released COVID-19.
She put her life on the line to say this.

Hard to believe this account has been suspended.

Automated bots are peddling dangerous lies about coronavirus on social media
DANGEROUS lies about Covid are being peddled by automated bot accounts, a report reveals.
Social media sites have become the target of extremist groups out to spread misinformation and fear.

Researchers tracked the authors of all tweets about the anti-mask movement posted last month. Of 36,974 posts, 2,588 came from bot accounts.
Seven in ten accounts were pushing either hard left or extreme right-wing content, the probe by Mainstream UK found.
Chairman Ian Austin said: “Fake accounts promoting fake news about Covid-19 represent a real danger to public health.
“They are spreading the bogus claims of the cranks who want us to believe Covid is not a real danger and we should ‘take a stand’ by not wearing masks.”
The researchers found that while 40 per cent of bots were active for less than six months, they still generated high levels of content. A quarter made more than 50,000 posts, some as many as 300,000.

At the end of last month more than 10,000 anti-mask demonstrators gathered in Hyde Park. London, to brand Covid a hoax.
They heard speeches from conspiracy theorists David Icke and Piers Corbyn, brother of former Labour leader Jeremy.
Previous research has suggested bots account for between five and 15 per cent of all activity on Twitter.
