Hundreds of white mice, genetically engineered to catch and carry the Covid-19 virus, were found at a secretive, illegal lab in Reedley, California, near Fresno, the MidValley Times reports. The illegal lab harbored potentially infectious bacterial and viral agents including chlamydia, E. Coli, streptococcus pneumonia, hepatitis B and C, herpes 1 and 5, rubella, samples of malaria and “thousands of vials that contained unlabeled fluids.”
Never authorized or officially permitted, the lab had been operated since October 2022 by Prestige Biotech, a company registered in Nevada but not licensed in California. In a ramshackle furniture warehouse, “patently unfit,” for biological purposes, the company reportedly made Covid and pregnancy test kits, but there was more to it.
According to court documents, 35 separate refrigerators and freezers contained biological material, blood, tissue, serum, bodily fluid samples, and medical waste. On July 5, officials removed from the property 48 containers, each with 44 gallons of “biological material and medical waste.”
Wang Zhaolin, Prestige representative onsite during the investigation, told investigators that the mice were genetically engineered to catch and carry the Covid-19 virus. Court documents identify Xiuquin Yao as the president of Prestige, founded in Nevada in 2019, and both are listed in this profile. After a fire in its Fresno lab in 2022, the company moved to Fresno, without any record of authorization.
According to Fresno County Department of Public Health official Joe Prado, Prestige representative David He “completely avoided the questions” about infectious agents on the property and were “intentionally trying to mislead us.” No one from Prestige, or any other company associated the property, has taken responsibility for the contents of the lab or proper medical waste disposal.
“Why would a Covid lab run by a shady Chinese company be operating in Reedley?” wondered Katy Grimes of the California Globe. At the end of July, after multiple reports on the lab, the Fresno Bee and Sacramento Bee were ignoring the story. So was Gov. Gavin Newsom, who shows strong support for Chinese companies.
In April, 2020, Gov. Newsom struck a $1 billion deal for masks with the Chinese company Build Your Dreams (BYD), not known for protective equipment. Newsom kept the details secret and the governor and his pals did not wear masks as they partied at an upscale eatery. It is now known that masks were ineffective and even harmful, but what happened to the $1 billion remains something of a mystery.
The federal Centers for Disease Control found at least 20 potentially infectious viral, bacterial and parasitic agents at the rogue lab. At this writing, the CDC news website showed no information on the Reedley lab. Like Gov. Newsom, the CDC also shows a distinct preference for China.
In early 2020, the telebriefings of the CDC’s Dr. Nancy Messonnier, conducted on January 17, January 24, January 29, January 30, February 3, February 5, February 12, February 25, and March 10, 2020, faithfully echoed China’s talking points.
On January 24, reporters who asked about China were told, “CDC has a team that’s been in China for many years where we work closely with the Department of Health in China.” There was information “from China” but Dr. Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, wasn’t giving it out.
The CDC mouthpiece was “not at liberty to talk about” the issue of travel from Wuhan, and Dr. Messonnier was eager to “compliment the Chinese” for recognizing the source in the “Wuhan market.’ And so on.
Dr. Messonnier started her career with the CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS), the CDC’s medical CIA tasked to prevent epidemics from arriving on American soil. The EIS failed to stop Covid, but their exact role remains unclear.
The EIS includes nationals from many countries, including China. Embattled Americans might wonder which nation’s interests the Chinese EIS officers represent, and if any were on the CDC “team” working with China for many years.
CDC veteran James LeDuc, as director of the Galveston National Lab (GNL), hosted students from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), the Chinese lab funded by Dr. Anthony Fauci to conduct dangerous gain-of-function research. According to LeDuc, the GNL was “squeaky clean” in its work with China, and the coronavirus developed naturally in the wild.
After the virus spread around the world, LeDuc signed agreements with three Chinese labs, including the WIV, giving China the power to destroy “secret files, materials and equipment, without any backups.” The agreements applied to “all cooperation and exchange documents, data, details and materials,” were renewable every five years, and the confidentiality terms remaining in force even after termination.
With this kind of official collaboration with the Communist regime, a secret Chinese lab in California should be no problem for federal and California authorities. Katy Grimes wonders if there are “more labs like this” in California and across the United States.
As revelations await, the allegedly retired Dr. Anthony Fauci is now the subject of an “official criminal referral,” by Sen. Rand Paul for lying about funding gain-of-function research at the WIV.
Sen. Paul, a medical doctor, charges that “viruses that in nature only infect animals were manipulated in the Wuhan lab to gain the function of infecting humans.”
In “China and Viruses: The Case of Dr. Xiangguo Qiu,” released in 2020, Israeli microbiologist Dr. Dany Shoham revealed that the Wuhan lab had been supplied with a cargo of deadly pathogens, including exceptionally dangerous Ebola and Nipah.
The WIV was one of four facilities involved in China’s biological weapons development. According to Dr. Shoham, all four facilities collaborated with Dr. Qiu, an “outstanding Chinese scientist” who headed the special pathogens program at Canada’s National Microbiology Lab (NML) in Winnipeg.
In 2017-18 alone. Dr. Qiu made at least five trips to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. According to FBI director Christopher Wray, the origin of the Covid-19 pandemic was “most likely a potential lab incident” in Wuhan, China.
