{Update} It appears that Gavin Newsom was using California taxpayer money to help fund the illegal and shady COVID-19 laboratory in California.

The California Globe writes, “A document released on March 24, 2019 by Governor Newsom’s Office of Business and Economic Development, a California Competes tax credit allocation agreement of $360,000 was cemented with UMI.”

Authorities in the small, rural county of Fresno in California have uncovered a disturbing illegal laboratory being run in a warehouse after a monthslong investigation into the site. The facility was filled with infectious agents, medical waste, and hundreds of bioengineered mice that were specifically designed to catch and carry the COVID-19 virus.

The warehouse was being run by a company out of China. 

Health and licensing said Monday that Prestige Biotech, a Chinese medical company registered in Nevada, was operating the unlicensed facility in Reedley, California, a small city about 24 miles southeast of Fresno. The company, according to Reedley City Manager Nicole Zieba, had a goal of being a diagnostics lab.

“They never had a business license,” Zieba told USA TODAY. “The city was completely unaware that they were in this building, operating under the cover of night.”

The Fresno County Public Health Department launched its investigation into the facility in December 2022 after a code enforcement officer saw a garden hose attached to a building that was presumed to be vacant and had no active business license, Zieba said.

Further inspection in March revealed that the facility housed various chemicals, suspected biological materials, bodily fluids and hundreds of lab mice, among other lab supplies, according to court documents.

County public health officials said they also found medical devices believed to have been developed on-site, such as COVID-19 and pregnancy tests.

The company’s president, Xiuquin Yao, told Fresno officials that Prestige began operating the site after taking over the now-defunct Universal Meditech Inc, which had been evicted from a lab facility in Fresno.

“The other addresses provided for identified authorized agents were either empty offices or addresses in China that could not be verified,” the court documents state.

Fresno City Councilman Garry Bredefeld voiced his outrage earlier in the week.

“There was blood, tissue, bodily fluid samples, and thousands of vials with fluids that are not labeled,” Councilman Bredefeld said. “They also found 900 mice, 200 mice that were dead.”

“The CDC tested the infectious agents found at the lab, and along with COVID-19, E. Coli and malaria, the agency found the lab was working with HIV, hepatitis and herpes, according to the US Department of Health and Humans Services,” according to The New York Post.

“Some of the chemicals and infectious agents were stored in bins that included English and Chinese labels, according to photos of the lab released in the court documents.

Prestige BioTech is accused of failing to comply with orders, including providing plans for biological abatement and disposal of hazardous materials. A criminal investigation is ongoing.”

Prestige’s website claims “to be one of the fastest growing biopharmaceuticals specialising in the discovery and development of first-in-class antibody drugs, biosimilars, and vaccines.”

The National Review reported that Wang Zhaolin, a spokesman for Prestige Biotech, said the mice “were genetically engineered to catch and carry the Covid-19 virus,” the newspaper reported. Court documents further showed that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) conducted tests on the more than 800 chemicals found at the site and that over 20 infectious agents were found present, including Hepatitis B and C, streptococcus pneumonia, chlamydia, rubella, and Herpes 1 and 5.

“Certain rooms of the warehouse were found to contain several vessels of liquid and various apparatus,” one document reads. “Fresno County Public Health staff also observed blood, tissue and other bodily fluid samples and serums; and thousands of vials of unlabeled fluids and suspected biological material.”

“Here at the public health department, we operate our own lab, so we are very well versed in the legal requirements and how to maintain and control an infectious agent,” Fresno County Department of Public Health official Joe Prado said in a statement broadcast on television. “And there was just a complete absence of those controls in place at the warehouse.”

“I’ve been with the department for 30 years, and I don’t recall a similar situation,” Fresno public-health official David Luchini told another local newspaper.
