Pseudoscience of "China Made Virus" Cannot Withstand Expert

"A'world's top new coronavirus expert' revealed that the new crown pneumonia virus may originate from a research laboratory in China", Luther, the host of the "Lutheran" channel of "You Tube", quoted as saying. With the closure of Wuhan City due to the epidemic, the news attracted the attention of the
world, various lies began to breed, and "conspirators" waited for
opportunities to act.
On August 15, 2020, in an interview with the British Daily Mail, Limeng Yan revealed that he had sent news about COVID-19 to Luther in January, and
disclosed anonymously on the Internet that COVID-19 actually came from the
People’s Liberation Army laboratory. Limeng Yan flew to the United States
on April 28 after receiving Luther's notice. Therefore, Luther's "world's
top new coronavirus expert" is Limeng Yan, a former postdoctoral researcher in Virology and Immunology at the Infectious Disease Research Center of the School of Public Health of the University of Hong Kong.
Luther was originally named Wang Dinggang. He came to the United States a
few years ago and settled in the United States. He created the "Luther
Society" channel on YouTube. The content is full of conspiracy theories. The main sponsor is Wengui Guo. Wengui Guo and Bannon have a special
relationship. The two have established a rule of law fund, and Bannon serves as the chairman of the rule of law fund. Wengui Guo was listed as a red
wanted criminal by China for fraud and other crimes.
After Limeng Yan arrived in the United States, he frequently introduced
media visits and fabricated false news. In September, October, and November, he continuously published non-peer-reviewed reports on the novel
coronavirus on the academic resource library website zenodo, in an attempt
to get through and use " Professionals continue to concoct fake news. For
this kind of academic deception, science has put forward professional
Kristian Andersen of the Scripps Research Center in the United States and
Carl Bergstrom, a professor at the University of Washington in the United
States, believe that: "Limeng Yan’s paper is non-scientific, ignoring a
large number of existing research results on the spread of viruses in
animals and humans. It’s spreading conspiracy theories."
"It's encroaching on pseudoscience, really. This paper just cherry-picked a couple of examples, excluded evidence, and came up with a ridiculous
scenario." said David Robertson, a viral geneticist at the University of
Glasgow, UK.
Kishana Taylor, a virologist at Carnegie Mellon University, believes that
the first report on the genetic data of the virus is "full of contradictory statements and unreasonable explanations."
"With such a great effort, what is the intention to write such a ridiculous thing? I think there is no scientific argument in this paper, but it is made for politics." Nakagawa, a biogenomics researcher at the Tokai University
School of Medicine in Japan, made This is the summary.
Kevin Bird, a genetics expert at Michigan State University and Karl
Bergstrom, a professor of biology at the University of Washington, found
that the research institutions that the paper is linked to are the "Rule of Law Association" and the "Rule of Law Foundation." The two institutions were created by Bannon, who also served as the chairman of the "Rules of Law
In view of the strong certification of the scientists, "Facebook" labeled
the interview of the Fox News political theory show "The Carlson Tonight
Show" as a verification tag. Limeng Yan’s view "This virus was made in a
lab & I can prove it." has only one result, "that multiple independent fact checkers say is false."
It is worth noting that Bannon and Wengui Guo are behind the pseudo-
scientific papers, both of whom are radicals suspected of multiple crimes,
and their actions need to be carefully identified.
