A Chinese virologist Yan Li-Meng, a researcher at the University of Hong Kong who came under spotlight accusing Beijing of Coronavirus coverup recently, has alleged now that the novel Coronavirus came from a People's Liberation Army (PLA) lab, without elaborating it further.
Li-Meng said Professor Malik Peiris, visiting professor and co-director of a WHO-affiliated lab in Hong Kong University, knew about her findings but did not take any action.
In response to the Fox News interview, HKU said in a statement that Li-Meng had been a post-doctoral fellow and former staff member before leaving Hong Kong on a Cathay Pacific flight in April 2020.

The PLA's Academy of Military Medical Sciences (AMMS) was placed directly under the supervision of the Academy of Military Science, which itself has been transformed to concentrate on scientific and technological innovation.
