The globe reported Friday at a COVID lab run by a shady Chinese company operating 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.
What they found was astonishing and extremely troubling: 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 liquids 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 all the state and federal agencies brought in, as well as all documents and materials found at the illegal lab site. Fresno County DPH responded almost immediately with a series of legal documents, including the Superior Court application for abatement order. But they said since this is an ongoing investigation, there are no additional records available to disclose at this time.
A doctor friend who just returned from a meeting shared some information with me about the spread of CCP-sponsored intrusions into domestic American society. Colleagues believe that our current government has invited and supports Chinese government-sponsored operations throughout the United States in academia, online data collection (social media apps), law enforcement, and scientific research. He said that what I wrote about in Friday’s article is another example of this.
Here are some of the highlights from the FCDPH documents, embedded below:
Since October 2022, Universal Meditech, Inc. (“UMI”) and Prestige Biotech operated an unlicensed and unregulated laboratory in a large warehouse located on the Property. (Id., at ¶ 7.) Prestige Biotech is the successor to UMI, a California corporation that is now defunct and undergoing bankruptcy proceedings. (Id., at ¶ 8.) UMI transferred biological material and laboratory equipment from a former site located in the City of Fresno. (Ibid.) The warehouse is obviously unsuitable for this purpose.
The city (Fresno) had serious concerns about what appeared to be the on-site laboratory operation, storage and use of biological material, and experiments on laboratory mice. The city contacted Fresno County Public Health to assist with 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 medical devices under embargo, e.g. COVID tests and pregnancy tests are believed to have been developed on site. Certain rooms in the warehouse were found to contain several containers of liquid and various devices. In plain view during this inspection, Fresno County Public Health personnel also observed blood, tissue and other body fluid samples; serum; 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 ultra-low temperature freezers (-80 and -60 degrees C) and 29 refrigerators/freezers (-20 degrees C). (Ibid.) Ultra-low temperature freezers raised concerns that infectious agents were being stored on site. During this inspection, a room was found housing hundreds of laboratory mice. (Ibid.) An individual associated with Prestige Biotech and who appeared to be in control of the property informed investigators that these mice were genetically engineered to catch and carry the COVID-19 virus. (Id., at ¶ 15.) The mice kept at the warehouse appeared to be in distress and were kept in inadequate conditions in overcrowded cages, and there was a shortage of food and water for the animals. (Id., at ¶ 19.)
CDC found potentially infectious agents at the site, 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:
- Archived as Nevada Domestic Corporation April 3, 2019
- Without license in CA
- Archiving status: active
- File number: E0153542019
- Registered Agent: Barry Zhang CPA
- Listed on the Korean Stock Exchange, company based in Singapore
- President: Xiu Yao
- When Fresno City officials contacted Yao via email, Yao told officials that Prestige was moving assets formerly belonging to Universal Meditech to the Fresno warehouse. Prestige Biotech is a creditor of 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
- The Fresno warehouse is operated by Wang Zhoalin
- Information regarding bizapedia refers to both Yao and Zhoalin as president, as well as several other executive roles, so Zhoalin likely has a much larger role in the company than just running the Fresno warehouse
- The Fresno warehouse lab has been operating illegally since October 2022
Prestige is accused of fails to comply with orders, such as providing a biological control and hazardous materials disposal plan; failed to grant a license or permit allowing for experiments and other laboratory activity.

In February 2023, The FDA reported a recall of Universal Meditech’s COVID-19 test kit: 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 on a defunct company, and not during COVID?
Universal Meditech Inc. is recalling Skippack Medical Lab COVID-19 Direct Antigen Rapid Tests that are not approved, 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 can cause serious injury or death.
The devices described in this recall notice are the same devices advertised in the FDA safety notice. Do not use Skippack Medical Lab SARS-CoV-2 COVID-19 tests.
The globe has a few unanswered questionsand a few more after reading the documents and statements:
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?
Are there more labs like this in California or in the US?
Does the current open borders policy play a role in operations?
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 authorized spending $1 billion of taxpayer funds in April 2020 on masks by the Chinese company BYD, which had not previously made personal protective equipment, yet just days after FDA approval it secured a $1 billion deal to supply masks to California…
