Twitter Bans Account of Chinese Virologist Who Claims the CCP Virus Was Created in Lab
Sept 16, 2020 – The Epoch Times:
Twitter has suspended the account of a Chinese virologist who claimed to have evidence showing that the CCP virus was manufactured in a lab.
Dr. Yan Limeng, who fled Hong Kong to the United States in April, released a study on Sept. 14 claiming that the virus shows “biological characteristics that are inconsistent with a naturally occurring, zoonotic virus” and thus “should be a laboratory product.” The study has not been peer-reviewed.
Twitter quickly banned Yan’s account following her tweet announcing the study. The account, which Yan only opened on Sunday, had garnered over 59,000 followers in its short lifespan.
Yan said that the scientific community has “kept silence and worked together with the Chinese Communist Party” to censor studies that came to similar conclusions. “They don’t want people to know the truth,” she said in a Fox interview on Tuesday. “That’s why I got suspended; I got suppression; I am the target that the Chinese Communist Party wants be [sic] disappeared.”
