Charles Lieber aka Charles M. Lieber was born in 1959 and from the United States. He is an American chemist and pioneer in nanoscience and nanotechnology. However, in January 2020, the Harvard professor was arrested along with two Chinese researchers in the U.S.
But recently after COVID-19 outbreak in the United States his video went viral on the Social Media and labeled him as Chinese Spy and even claimed that he sold deadly Coronavirus to China for money, Charles headed Chemistry and Chemical biology department at the Harvard and he also helped to set up a Lab in Wuhan city which is said to COVID-19 emerged from there, Charles was working with Chinese and being funded by the Chineses while also getting Money from the U.S Department of Defence.
On April 5th, his arrest video went viral on social media and the video claimed that United States has found the man who made and sold the deadly COVID-19 virus to China and also claimed that he was paid 50k per month and he also called as Corona Virus culprit? but this was fake news which was spread on Social Media.
