A Chinese virologist claimed the coronavirus was ‘intentionally’ released. Turns out, she works for a group led by Steve Bannon.

A strange new paper claiming the coronavirus was a “laboratory product” quietly made its way into a repository of preliminary research on Monday.

“The laboratory creation of this coronavirus is convenient and can be accomplished in approximately six months,” the paper’s authors, four Chinese virologists who fled to the US earlier this year, wrote.

Li-Meng Yan, the lead author, went a step further in a Tuesday interview with the Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

She told Carlson that her government had “intentionally” released the “man-made virus” — comments that echoed a fringe conspiracy theory that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and President Donald Trump alluded to in May.
