The Globe reported Friday on a COVID lab run by a shady Chinese company operating in Reedley, CA in the central San Joaquin Valley. The lab, which was supposed to be an empty building, was discovered by Reedley city code enforcement officers when they saw a garden hose attached to the building and investigated.
What they found was stunning and extremely concerning: investigators discovered that one rooms of the warehouse was used to produce COVID-19 and pregnancy tests. In other rooms, investigators found blood, tissue and other bodily fluid samples. They also found thousands of vials that contained unlabeled fluids, the MidValley Times reported.
The Globe made public records requests to the City of Reedly and the Fresno County Department of Public Health for information and communications between the all of the state and federal agencies brought in, as well as any documents and materials found at the illegal lab location. The Fresno County DPH responded almost immediately with a bevy of legal documents including the Superior Court Application for Abatement Warrant. But they said since this is an ongoing investigation, there are no additional records available to disclose at this time.
A medical friend who just returned from a meeting shared some information with me about the spread of CCP-sponsored incursions into domestic American society. Colleagues believe that our current government has invited in and is supporting Chinese government-sponsored operations throughout the United States in academia, online data gathering (social media apps), law enforcement, and scientific research. He said what I wrote about in Friday’s article is yet another example of this.
Here are some of the highlights from the FCDPH documents which are embedded below:
Since October 2022, Universal Meditech, Inc. (“UMI”), and Prestige Biotech has been operating an unlicensed and unregulated laboratory within a large warehouse located on the Property. (Id., at ¶ 7.) Prestige Biotech is the successor to UMI, a California corporation, which is now defunct and going through the bankruptcy process. (Id., at ¶ 8.) UMI transferred biological material and laboratory equipment from a previous site located in the City of Fresno. (Ibid.) The warehouse is patently unfit for this purpose.
The City [Fresno] had grave concerns over what appeared to be the laboratory operation on site, storage and use of biological material, and experimentation on laboratory mice. The City contacted Fresno County Public Health to assist in the City’s enforcement efforts because unknown biological material and toxic chemicals were discovered on the Property. (Ibid.) The City also contacted the California Department of Toxic Substance Control (“DTSC”), the California Department of Public Health (“CDPH”), and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (“FBI”). (Id., at ¶ 6.)
CDPH documented embargoed medical devices, e.g. COVID tests and pregnancy tests, believed to be developed on site. Certain rooms of the warehouse were found to contain several vessels of liquid and various apparatus. In open view during this inspection, Fresno County Public Health staff also observed blood, tissue and other bodily fluid samples; serums; and thousands of vials of unlabeled fluids and suspected biological material. (Ibid.) Various laboratory equipment was also found to include a biological safety cabinet and centrifuge. Cold temperature storage units were also observed, which included 2 ultralow temperature freezer units (-80 and -60 degrees C) and 29 refrigerators/freezers (-20 degrees C). (Ibid.) Ultralow temperature freezers raised concerns that infectious agents were stored on site. During this inspection a room was found housing hundreds of laboratory mice. (Ibid.) A person associated with Prestige Biotech and who appeared to be in control of the Property, informed the investigators that these mice were genetically engineered to catch and carry the COVID-19 virus. (Id., at ¶ 15.) The mice held in the warehouse appeared to be in distress and were kept in inadequate conditions in overcrowded cages and there was a lack of food and water for the animals. (Id., at ¶ 19.)
The CDC found potentially infectious agents at the location including both bacterial and viral agents: chlamydia, E. Coli, streptococcus pneumonia, hepatitis B and C, herpes 1 and 5 and rubella. The CDC also found samples of malaria.
A friend did some digging and provided this on Prestige Biotech:
- Filed as Nevada Domestic Corporation April 3rd, 2019
- Unlicensed in CA
- Filing status: active
- File number: E0153542019
- Registered agent: Barry Zhang CPA
- Publicly traded on Korean Stock Exchange, company based in Singapore
- President: Xiu Yao
- When Fresno City officials contacted Yao via email, Yao told officials that Prestige moved assets previously belonging to Universal Meditech to the Fresno warehouse. Prestige Biotech is a creditor to UMI and its successor according to court documents
- No CA address can be found for Prestige; addresses found for authorized agents were either empty offices or unverifiable addresses in China
- Fresno warehouse operated by Wang Zhoalin
- Info on bizapedia refers to both Yao and Zhoalin as President, as well as several other executive roles, so Zhoalin likely has much larger role at company than just operating the Fresno warehouse
- Fresno warehouse lab has been illegally operating since October 2022
Prestige is accused of failing to comply with orders, such as providing plan for biological abatement and disposal of hazardous materials; failed to provide license or permit that allows for experimentation and other lab activity.

ZHAOLIN WANG, Director at one of the same addresses as XIUQIN YAO.
In February 2023, the FDA reported a recall of Universal Meditech’s COVID-19 test kits: I thought Prestige Biotech took over for Universal Meditech, which is now defunct and going through the bankruptcy process. And why is the FDA now doing a recall of a defunct company, and not during COVID?
Universal Meditech Inc. Recalls Skippack Medical Lab COVID-19 Direct Antigen Rapid Tests That Are Not Authorized, Cleared, or Approved by the FDA
The FDA has identified this as a Class I recall, the most serious type of recall. Use of these devices may cause serious injuries or death.
The devices described in this recall notice are the same devices announced in the FDA safety communication Do Not Use Skippack Medical Lab SARS-CoV-2 COVID-19 Tests.
The Globe has a few unanswered questions, and a few more after reading the documents and affidavits:
Why was a Chinese company making COVID-19 tests in California?
Where were these tests to be used? California public health agencies? Medical groups and hospitals?
Is the California Department of Public Health involved?
Who authorized this lab?
What does the Newsom administration know about this?
Are there more Labs like this in California or in the U.S.?
Does the current open border policy play a part in operation?
How could the Newsom administration not know about this given how Gov. Newsom so tediously micromanaged California’s COVID policies and even bought Chinese-made masks from BYD: Gov. Gavin Newsom approved spending $1 Billion of taxpayers funds in April 2020 on masks from Chinese company BYD which had no prior history of making personal protective equipment, and yet days after the FDA approval, it secured a $1 billion deal to supply masks to California…
