The black market laboratory in Fresno County, which was raided earlier this month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was reportedly making illegal Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) tests and was a cesspool of infectious diseases including the coronavirus, malaria, rubella, HIV, chlamydia, E. coli, pneumonia, hepatitis and herpes. Federal agents also found other kinds of hazardous materials, medical waste and over 1,000 lab mice.
According to public records, the biolab previously tied to Universal Meditech Inc. (UMI), received $149,824 from the federal government through a COVID-19-era loan program. The loans were disbursed in April 2020 and February 2021.
UMI also secured a $360,000 income tax credit through the CalCompetes program of Gov. Gavin Newsom in 2018. However, UMI's failure to meet program guidelines prevented the actual disbursement of those funds.
The company eventually filed for bankruptcy in 2022, paving the way for its acquisition by Prestige BioTech, a company reportedly owned by people based in China, including one mysterious man named Xiuquin Yao, who was listed as the president of Prestige BioTech.
While it produced COVID-19 tests illegally, at the time of the raid the lab was operating legally and the facility was properly licensed and permitted by the state to produce pregnancy, ovulation and menopause diagnostic tests.
At the time of the raid, local authorities and federal agencies discovered 900 genetically engineered mice living in distressing conditions, while another 175 were discovered dead. Subsequently, 773 of the mice were humanely euthanized due to their dire condition.
Because of this revelation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Energy confirmed the connection of this biolab to the origins of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

"The FBI has for quite some time now assessed that the origins of the pandemic are most likely a potential lab incident in Wuhan," said FBI Director Christopher Wray, suggesting a possible accidental leak. Yet, some experts, including Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist, contend that deliberate actions may have triggered the initial outbreak.
“Of course, it was not an accident. I can tell you based on the protocol and also the other surveillance systems it will be impossible for the lab leak to accidentally happen in such a lab.”
As the investigation unfolds, Joe Prado, a division manager from the Fresno County Department of Public Health assured the public that all hazardous materials have been disposed of safely. "The evaluation required coordination and collaboration with multiple federal and state agencies to determine and classify biological and chemical contents onsite," Prado stated, highlighting the complexity of handling such hazardous situations.
Xiuquin Yao and Prestige BioTech now face a litany of charges, including "illegal disposal of hazardous materials" and "failure to comply with biological abatement orders." The ongoing investigation continues as authorities work diligently to fully comprehend the scope and implications of this disturbing operation.
