Why would a COVID lab run by a shady Chinese company operate in Reedley, California 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.
Darren Fraser knows The MidValley Times reported earlier this week that the building has been illegally operated since October 2022 by Wang Zhaolin of Prestige Biotech, and the lab was used to produce COVID-19 tests and pregnancy tests.
City of Reedley officials called in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the FBI, the State Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), the State Department of Health, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the Fresno County Department of Public Health (FCDPH).
“Reedley officials and personnel from CDPH and FCDPH executed a warrant on March 16 to inspect the warehouse at 850 I Street,” the MidValley Times reported. “According to an affidavit by Humero Prado, assistant director of Fresno County Public Health, filed in Superior Court, investigators discovered that a room in the warehouse was being used to produce COVID-19 and pregnancy tests. In other rooms, investigators found blood, tissue – and other body fluid samples. They also found thousands of vials containing unlabeled fluids.”
And they found 900 genetically engineered mice, engineered to catch and carry COVID-19, living in “inhumane” conditions. 773 of the mice had to be euthanized, and officials found another 178 mice already dead.
We have a few questions:
Why was a Chinese company doing COVID-19 tests in California?
Where should these tests be used? California Public Health Authorities? Medical groups and hospitals?
Is the California Department of Public Health involved?
Who approved this lab?
What does the Newsom administration know about this?
Mid Valley Times on reports:
“From May 2 to May 4, the CDC’s Select Agents and Toxins Division inspected 850 I Street. Court documents confirm CDC found potentially infectious agents at the site. These included both bacterial and viral agents, including: chlamydia, E. coli, strep pneumonia, hepatitis B and C, herpes 1 and 5, and rubella. The CDC also found samples of malaria.”
“Court documents identify Xiuquin Yao as the alleged president of Prestige. Neither Reedley nor FCDPH were able to obtain significant information from Yao about Prestige or why infectious agents and mice were stored at 850 I Street beyond saying that the company developed diagnostic test kits .”
“Court documents include copies of an email exchange Prado conducted with David He, who identified himself as a representative of Prestige, beginning on May 31 and continuing through June 13. Over the course of several emails, Prado asks him repeatedly to provide documentation regarding licensed physician waste disposal, Prestige’s rationale for storing infectious agents, and how the company will respond to the biological abatement orders issued by FCDPH.”
“They (Prestige) completely avoided the questions,” Prado said. “This person (Han) was either ignorant or intentionally trying to mislead us.”
As a start, the Globe submitted public records requests to the City of Reedly and the Fresno County Department of Public Health for information and communications between all agencies, as well as all documents and materials found at the illegal lab site.

As we reported in February 2021 about the thousands of uncertain test results coming out of Governor Gavin Newsom’s $100 million COVID-19 testing lab with the $1.7 billion contract with PerkinElmer, “Is anything about the COVID-19 virus true, or is this the greatest political manipulation this country has ever seen?”
The Globe will report back on this bizarre story.
