Dr. Li-Meng Yan – What’s Really Going on in Shanghai

Dr Yan Li-Meng joins Australian podcaster, Maria Zeee to give us her perspective on what’s really happening in Shanghai.

Dr Yan was one of the first scientists outside the Wuhan Institute of Virology to analyze SARS-CoV-2 in January of 2020. She fled her position as a virologist at the University of Hong Kong and defected to the US in April of that year, after conclusively determining that the virus was engineered in the lab to be a bioweapon.

For the past two years, Dr Yan has asserted that SARS-CoV-2 was developed by the People’s Liberation Army in 2017, the purpose of which is “to destroy your economy, destroy your social order, destroy your civilization. Finally, [you’ll be] controlled by Chinese Communist Party.”

She tells Maria that according to her intelligence sources, “I can tell you they didn’t release a new bioweapon in Shanghai and this is definitely not about any public health crisis. This is a pure political crisis.”

She explains the crackdown is being spurred by several destabilizing factors within China, which are jeopardizing Xi’s rule at a time when his first term is nearly up and his regime wants to remain in power.


They also want to replace the current US dollar-based world order with a Chinese world order and they’ve learned much about repressive strategies, after seeing them deployed in the West over the past two years.

She says that Xi doesn’t fully control Shanghai, which is the financial center of the Mainland, as well as the window through which the Mainland communicates with the rest of the world.

She says Shanghai is actually the territory of Xi’s political rivals, the group surrounding former CCP Chairman Jiang Zemin and Xi is using his zero-COVID policies to consolidate his control over the region.


“The CCP has never cared about human life,” she says. “They really care about their power and their money so that’s why using COVID policy, for Xi Jinping is a very useful weapon, because he can launch the Army and armed forces and also other related law enforcement teams to Shanghai from other cities to take over the city.”


Dr Yan describes how the Artificial Intelligence of the “COVID Code” works. Using the CCP’s color-coded “COVID Code” contact-tracing phone app, Xi is able to lock people down and to send people to COVID camps.

Without this app on your phone, you cannot go anywhere in China and they use your phone’s GPS to track you. Those found to have been in “close contact” with a carrier of SARS-CoV-2 while out shopping, who then go home can cause their entire apartment bloc to be locked down – or all sent to a COVID camp – if that is what convenes for the regime.

In such cases, children are often taken to different facilities from their parents and pets are beaten to death. She warns us that dystopian scenes playing out in Shanghai should serve as a warning to the West of where such policies inevitably lead.

However, Dr Yan points out that while similar contact-tracing apps and vaccine passport apps have been rolled-out in the West and while some Western jurisdictions, like Australia and Washington State have even built COVID camps, these things are not as easy to impose on societies which, unlike China have enjoyed basic human rights for centuries.

For example, the federal judge in Florida striking down the TSA’s mask mandate last week is something that could never have occurred in China.


Maria then asks Dr Yan about Xi’s alliance with Putin and she says that they don’t really trust each other but that they are like two Mafia families taking advantage of each other, allied with the common goal of upending the current US dollar world order.

To that end, she says the two signed a secret deal while attending the 2022 Winter Olympics, in which China agreed to supply Russia with financial and weapons support, during their invasion of Ukraine and the two agreed to exchange intelligence.

There are also 15 open deals made between the two nations to build pipelines from Russia to Shanghai and trade deals in which China agrees to buy Russian goods and agrees to give Russia access to their warm water ports, including that of her native city of Qindao.

“Russia needs these kinds of harbors, because they have very good nuclear submarines, which China doesn’t have.” So, Russia gets to park its subs up and down the Chinese coast and the two countries have also been doing joint military exercises together.

She says Westerners should not celebrate Putin as a hero, as he’s nearly as authoritarian as the CCP and he wants to resurrect the former Soviet Union and regain control over the Baltic states, Poland, Finland, the Balkan Peninsula and the Kuril Islands in the North Pacific.

She says Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is being studied by China as a potential blueprint for their own planned invasion of Taiwan. “Once they get Taiwan, they can switch the geopolitical factors. Based on Taiwan, they can also change the supply chain for the whole world, because Taiwan actually has the high technology, industry and also, once they get Taiwan, they can push their defense area forward.

“What Xi Jinping and Putin want is, they get Taiwan, they also, from the East side, get Europe and then, they break through the Second Island Chain.

“They want to directly confront America. They want to change the current world order based on the US dollar and they want to undermine America, they want to change the Western civilization.

“So when people talk about ‘Putin is just doing the invasion [of Ukraine] because NATO gave the pressure,’ no, this is just propaganda plus their excuse. If there was no NATO, they would also find another reason…

“Putin has Aleksandr Dugin, whose work is all talking about how to restore the Eurasian Continent to the old Russian Empire and that’s also what Putin wants.”

Meanwhile, China is the expert of infiltration. Dr Yan says there are many people in the US working for China and that the situation is even worse in Australia, where many in power are also blackmailed by the CCP.

She says a very clear example of how this works can be seen in how COVID has played out. “How they compromised Fauci, how they compromised The New York Times…so suddenly, you will see most of these people who you trusted before showed their side to be Chinese Communist Party.”

If there is any good news about the COVID war, she says it’s that many have awakened to the Chinese threat. Where many used to see China’s activities in Africa and around the world as harmless, many now recognize that everything they do has a nefarious purpose to destroy us and our civilization.


Dr Yan suggests that what appears to be an alliance between Globalists and China, since they seem to be pushing the same agenda is not an alliance. The Globalist agenda is the CCP’s agenda. The Globalists are pushing it because they’re all blackmailed and controlled by China.

When Maria asks her about the engineered food crisis and whether Globalists are working together with China to create the Great Reset, Dr Yan says, “No. That is not real, because we really have intelligence from China. If you don’t have this, of course people would have these kinds of concerns.

“I know people talk about the ‘Deep State’, which basically means that the Globalists, the big international organizations and businesses, they work with China very well but what I can tell you, the Xi Jinping regime really feels this pressure, because they even have done things to harm the Globalists on the matter of their health and now those people realize that they’re not working with allies [with whom] they can share the profits…

“Instead, this is a mafia that wants to kill all of them. So, the CCP is very dangerous. And what the CCP could do, COVID is just the beginning. Later on, more things will happen. You see, China has been accelerating and has become more aggressive now. Especially now that Communist China has been working with Russia – two countries with nuclear weapons, which they can use to threaten the whole world. That is a disaster.”

But Dr Yan is confident that people in the West are waking up to the danger. Whereas, many businesses have held their tongues about the Uyghur genocide in Xinjiang, thinking they can still make a lot of money in China, the fallout from the shutdown of the Port of Shanghai will irrevocably change this dynamic and many international businesses will move out of Mainland China.

According to her Chinese intelligence sources, Xi Jinping and the CCP are in a very dangerous position, they’re desperate and they’re reaching a quickening.

“But we really need to break down this evil regime and then, at that time, the whole of China will go back to the peaceful status,” and we will no longer have this threat hanging over our heads.

She says it’s important that we all stand up and spread the word, because Putin ad Xi Jinping want to get the world into World War III, which has actually already started in Ukraine.
