A 20-minute Summary of Dr. Li-Meng Yan’s 3rd Report


Production: MOS Himalaya Video Team

On March 31, 2021, Dr. Li-Meng Yan published her third report titled, The Wuhan Laboratory Origin of SARS-CoV-2 and the Validity of the Yan Reports Are Further Proven by the Failure of Two Uninvited “Peer Reviews.”Virologist Dr. Yan wasa core member of the WHO H5 Reference Lab at the University of Hong Kong. She is the first person that revealed the truths behind the origins of COVID-19 to the wholeworld. This video will summarize and explain Dr. Yan’s third report in layman’s terms within 20 minutes.

The opening section of the third report addresses milestones in Dr. Yan’s journey to reveal the laboratory origin of COVID-19. The CCP attempted to hide COVID-19’s bioweapon origin by spreading the natural origin theory through theirWestern colleagues in science and in the mainstream media. Part I & II of the third report responded to the uninvited “peer reviews” of Dr. Yan’s first report. The major pointsof the report include the identical E proteins, the inserted furin cleavage sites, the fabricated virus RaTG13 and the fake intermediate host pangolin.In addition, she further addresses CCP’s animal passage experiments used for enhancing pathogenicity of the virus and them covering up traces of their genetic engineering footprints. The report also covers a tale parallel to the COVID-19 pandemic written in the CCP’s 2015 military textbook.

Opening statement: A Brief Timeline of Dr. Yan’s Journey and Her Battles Against the CCP’s Unrestricted Scientific Misinformation Campaign

On December 31, 2019, Dr. Yan conducted a secret investigation into the outbreak in Wuhan. Through her connections with scientists and doctors from the Mainland China, Dr. Yan obtained first-hand information that the new infectious disease, COVID 19 caused by the virus SARS-COV-2 had a sinister origin. Dr. Yan immediately informed her supervisors of the CCP’s reluctance to address the disease in a timely manner as a way of covering up. Her supervisors were Leo Poon and Malik Peiris, both of whom are some of the top coronavirus experts in the world. However, Professor Poon warned Dr. Yan repeatedly that she “should not cross the red line” and, “if not, [she] would be disappeared”. At the same time, Dr. Yan noticed that the CCP published a mistaken genomic sequence of COVID-19 on January 12th, 2020.

On January 19th, 2020, Dr. Yan anonymously publicized details of COVID-19 through Lude Media, a popular YouTube channel intended forChinese-speaking audiences overseas. She informed her audience five messages which werelater affirmed to be true:

(1) The virus was created in a Chinese military lab using ZC45/ZXC21 viruses as the template.
(2) The CCP is actively covering up the information of the disease, especially in regards to its origin.
(3) There is human-to-human transmission.
(4) There are no animal intermediatory hosts.
(5)The virus has a potential to cause a major pandemic, and many mutants will emerge as a result. Within a day of her appearance on the LudeShow, the CCP authority admitted for the first time that there was human-to-human transmission. Three days later, Wuhan was placed under a city-wide lockdown.

The CCP’s well-planned crime was exposed by Dr. Yan. The CCP quickly mobilized the scientific and medical community to launch a disinformation campaign. On February 3rd, 2020, Dr. Zhengli Shi, a well-renowned bat expert from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) published a Nature paper which pinpointed the virus RaTG13 as the precursor to SARS-CoV-2 virus. RaTG13 was later proved to be fabricated. On February 19th, 2020, 27 scientists signed a letter published in the journal Lancet. The statement condemned the “conspiracy theories” that suggested a laboratory origin of the virus. It was later revealed through leaked emails that the letter was arranged secretly by Dr. Peter Daszak,the CEO of EcoHealth Alliance and a long-term collaborator of Dr. Zhengli Shi and the Wuhan Institute of Virology. On March 17th, 2020, Dr. Ian Lipkin, who received several prestigious awards from the CCP regime in the past two decades, published an opinion article titled “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2” in the top journal Nature Medicine, supporting the natural origin theory.

Sensing that Dr. Yan’s life might be in danger, Lude, the Rule of Law Foundation, and the Rule of Law Society helped Dr. Yan flee Hong Kong at the end of April 2020. Dr. Yan made her first public appearance on Fox Newsin July  2020. Despite Dr. Yan’s courage and tireless effort, the coordinated disinformation campaign by the CCP created huge obstacles for the scientific community and the general public to understand the risks of COVID-19 and its real origin, resulting in sharp rise of COVID-19 cases and deaths around the world.

Part I/II: Responses to “Peer Review” by Scientists Compromised by the CCP

The real battle of revealing the truth of COVID-19 using science started on September 14th, 2020. Dr. Yan and her team published their first scientific report titled “Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV-2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather Than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synthetic Route”. The first report presented substantial scientific evidence and analyses that SARS-CoV-2, the pathogen causing COVID-19, is a synthetic product of a laboratory. The report received unprecedented 1.1 million views and 750,000 downloads on Zenodo. On October 8th, 2020, Dr. Yan and her team published their second report titled “SARS-CoV-2 Is an Unrestricted Bioweapon: A Truth Revealed through Uncovering a Large-Scale, Organized Scientific Fraud”. The second report defined SARS-CoV-2 as an unrestricted bioweapon based on the evidence of lab creation, the planned cover-up by the CCP, and the characteristics of SARS-COV-2. Thus far, the first Yan report is the only report in her series which received unsolicited “peer review” by two university-based teams.

The first review was produced by a group of four scientists from Johns Hopkins’ Center for Health Security with immunologist Dr. Gigi Gronvall leading the review. Gronvall was a member of an expert group consulted by the US government very early on in the pandemic about the origins of SARS-CoV-2. The leaked email exchanges show that Gronvall was in the group organized by Peter Daszak to support the natural origin theory. The second review was published by the MIT Press and the leading reviewer was Dr. Robert Gallo, a top scientist in HIV/AIDS. Gallo has deep financial and research-based ties to the CCP government. There is a Gallo Virology Institute in Shandong province, China. The CCP regime awarded him the VCANBIO Award for Biosciences and Medicine.

Peer reviews have to honest, logical, evidence-based, and produced by scientists who are not self or politically motivated.

Unfortunately, these criteria are not met by the aforementioned two reviewsled by Drs. Gronvall and Gallo. Despite the fact that Gronvall and Gallo worked for Peter Daszak or the CCP, these reviews were cited bymedia outlets including the National Geographic, the New York Times, and CNN. Dr. Yan felt obligated to respond to such reviews in order to help the world recognize the ongoing disinformation campaign. Many of the claims in the two reviews are similar, indicating that they either copied each other or received the same instruction from the CCP. We will go over five examples of Dr. Yan’s response to their criticism.

1. Dr. Yan: The E proteins of the backbone virus ZC45/ZXC21 and SARS-CoV-2 are identical.

The peer reviews claim that the “military” virus ZC45/ZXC21 could not be the backbone virus of the SARS-CoV-2. They claim thatthere are over 3,000 nucleotide differences amongstthem, but does not mention the E protein. Nucleotides are units of DNA or RNA of any part of the genome. Dr. Yan explains that the military virus must be the backbone/template used for the creation of SARS-CoV-2. In fact, SARS-CoV-2 and the military virus are 100% identical on the E protein. E proteins, or envelope proteins of viruses, are like human fingerprints that are unique to individuals. If the coronavirus jumped from animals to humans, E proteins could not be preserved 100% during natural evolution. Dr. Yan believes that the CCP military scientists intentionally kept the E protein 100% identical during the genetic engineering process to preserve the virus’ ability to infect brains. In fact, many COVID-19 patients experience some type of neurological damages. The “military” virus was discovered and exclusively owned by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). Whoever owns the backbone virus must be the creator of SARS-CoV-2.

2. Dr. Yan: The furin cleavage site in S1/S2 junction of the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 cannot be a natural occurrence.

Dr. Yan’s first report stated that the furin cleavage site in S1/S2 junction of the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 cannot be a natural occurrence. A furin cleavage site allows the virus to use furin in the human body as an enzyme to dissolve its coating so it can release its genetic material to infect human cells. Viruses with furin cleavage sites tend to be more infectious than those using other enzymes. Since furin cleavage sites are present at the S1/S2 junction of SARS-CoV-2, but missing at similar locations of other lineage B β coronaviruses,  it is highly improbable that SARS-CoV-2 acquired the furincleavage sites through natural evolution. The analogy is that if your family members and relatives all have single eyelid features, you must have the single eyelid feature based on genetics, even if double eyelids are common in your hometown.

The peer reviews claimed that SARS-CoV-1 and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) have furin cleavage sites in their spike protein. This is fairly common in other coronaviruses. Therefore, the furin cleavage sites could be acquired by SARS-CoV-2 during natural evolution. The reviewer distorted Dr. Yan’s description by omitting the words “lineage B  β” and “at the S1/S2 junction”. Furthermore, Dr. Yan pointed out that SARS-CoV-1 doesn’t have a furin cleavage site at the S1/S2 region as the reviewer claimed. MERS does have a furin cleavage site at the S1/S2 junction but it doesn’t belong to the lineage B of β coronaviruses.

3. Dr. Yan: RaTG13, the thought-to-be precursor of SARS-CoV-2, was fabricated.

The peer reviews claim that Dr. Yan’s attacks on RaTG 13 virus, the thought-to-be precursor of SARS-CoV-2 by Zhengli Shi, have not been referenced appropriately. Subsequently, Dr. Yan published the second report on October 8th, 2020 and provided substantial evidence and analyses to prove the bat virus RaTG13, RmYN02, and a series of pangolin coronaviruses were fabricated viruses by the CCP scientists to mislead the scientificcommunity. For example, no RaTG13 viruses have ever been isolated or recovered. The curves comparing non-synonymous mutations of RaTG13 and other coronaviruses have abnormal spikes. 

4. Dr. Yan: Serial passage allows viruses to adapt to novel host with significant lethality and can possibly remove some traces of genetic manipulation.

Dr. Yan’s first report explained that serial passage allows viruses to adapt to novel host with significant lethality and can possibly remove some traces of genetic manipulation. Serial passage refers to the process of growing viruses in iterations, for example, growing viruses in animal hosts. The peer review claims that serial passage would not necessarily make a virus more pathogenic in humans and Dr. Yan’s first report mischaracterizes the complexity of these processes and outcomes from serial passage.

Dr. Yan used her experience to prove that serial passage has allowed successful adaptation of a virus to infect a novel host with significant lethality. She had previously used serial passage to convert influenza A H3N2/Hong Kong/1/68 virus, which is not lethal to mice, to a novel strain that causes efficient infections and high lethality in mice. Dr. Yan pointed out that serial passage can also partially mimic natural evolution to remove some traces of genetic manipulation. It shows that the reviewer doesn’t have this knowledge or lacks wet lab experience in serial passage.

Dr. Yan noted that serial passage was discussed in the CCP’s military textbook as a way to create bioweapons that are indistinguishable from naturally occurring pathogens, which is one of the characteristics of a “contemporary genetic weapon”. The 2015 textbook titled “Unnatural Origin of SARS and Genetic Weapons Based on Artificial Human-Infectious Viruses” also described that an ideal “contemporary genetic weapon”  is not restricted for military battles, but is for non-military settings where it would be “causing terror (in) and gaining political and strategic advantage, regionally or internationally, (over the enemy state)”.

It’s also interesting to note that the reviewer thought the methods described by Dr. Yan to make SARS-CoV-2 do not present a “biological weapons” risk. However, Dr. Yan had not, for once, described SARS-CoV-2 as a bioweapon in her first report. Only in her subsequent reports, Dr. Yan brought up the concept of “unrestricted bioweapons”. Did the reviewer of Yan’s first report accidentally reveal the CCP’s plan to make bioweapons by denying it?

5. Yan: The Rule of Law Foundation and the Rule of Law Society provided crucial assistance in Dr. Yan’s escape from Hong Kong.

The peer review questioned Dr. Yan’s affiliation with the Rule of Law Foundation (ROLF) and the Rule of Law Society (ROLS). They are non-profit organizations that work to promote freedom, human rights, and equality for Chinese people. Dr. Yan thanked the twin organizations for helping her fleeing Hong Kong, otherwise, she would have been arrested and even persecuted by the CPP. Dr. Yan clarified that the Yan reports were produced solely by herself and her scientific team and the reports had not been altered in any way by the two foundations.

By now, we have highlighted the key points from the third Yan report. We hope you now have a better understanding of the real origin of COVID-19. We appreciate Dr. Yan’s hardwork to continue her battles against the Unrestricted Scientific Misinformation campaign by the CCP. Please refer to Dr. Yan’s three reports for more technicaldetails. Please help Dr. Yan spread the truth and raise awareness of the importance of holding the CCP accountable for COVID-19. Only then we, humans, can end the current pandemic and prevent the next one.
