    When Li-Meng Yan was asked to pop into her boss’s office on the final day of last year, she had no idea such a routine summons might be the start of events that would lead to her fleeing her family, her work and her country in fear for her life. The Chinese-born virologist was based at a prestigious Hong Kong university, one of the world’s leading centres for researching infectious diseases and a key part of the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) global epidemiology network. Her professor asked her to find out what she could about a mysterious cluster of virus cases that had erupted in the Chinese city of Wuhan – and through her medical and scientific contacts she claims to have stumbled upon a cover-up of epic proportions. Yet her evidence about human transmission was ignored, her claim that Beijing was deliberately distorting details of the origins buried, her warning they had already sequenced the genetic code of a deadly new coronavirus (crucial for developing diagnostic tests and vaccines) swept aside. So, as the death toll rose, Dr Yan...
