Facebook censored an article about an interview featuring a former Chinese virologist about the origins of COVID-19. The censorship came despite some evidence supporting the theory that the virus came from a lab and despite world leaders being briefed on it as the most likely scenario.
Dr. Li-Meng Yan is a Chinese virologist who escaped to the US after facing threats for talking about the origins of the virus in China. She has faced online censorship many times before.
Last week, The Daily Signal published an interview with Yan, who claims to have evidence that the virus was created in a research lab in Wuhan, China. She speculated that the virus was created with the approval of China’s army, the People’s Liberation Army.
