Did China just catch 250 lab workers who were paid by the West to spread COVID-19?!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : China Caught Lab Workers Paid To Spread COVID-19!
The Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛) and pro-CCP netizens are now promoting a video as evidence that 250 lab workers were just caught spreading COVID-19 in China for Western countries!
Truth : China Did Not Catch Lab Workers Paid To Spread COVID-19!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), and pro-CCP netizens, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Video Was Taken From Kuaishou
The original video was posted on Kuaishou – a Chinese short-video platform like Douyin / TikTok, by a user called 水果花花 (Fruit Blossoms) on November 30, 2022.
Fact #2 : Video Was About Fake / Wrong PCR Test Results
My Mandarin isn’t good, but with a ton of help from Chai, I was able to determine that the video was not about lab workers spreading COVID-19 in China.
Instead, the narrator of the video was talking about a person called Zhang Shanshan who is backed by Zhang Hezi (who may or may not be her father) who owns a company which conducts PCR tests.
Unfortunately, the company was found to be falsifying test results, because they can make more money from more testing. Allegedly, that is why whenever they open up a new testing centre, there is a surge of COVID-positive cases.
The video did not mention anything about these lab workers spreading COVID-19, only that they were falsifying or making mistakes in PCR test results.
Here is a rough transcript of what the narrator in the video was saying:
Incidentally, here are some translations of the labels in the video:
Fact #3 : Arrested Lab Workers Not Accused Of Spreading COVID-19
The lab workers, including Zhang Shanshan, were arrested because they were accused of giving false PCR test results, either intentionally or due to negligence.
They are all from the Chinese testing company called Shenzhen Nucleus Gene Technology Go. which is being accused of falsifying or improperly conducting PCR tests.
To be clear – the lab workers were not accused of helping Western countries spread COVID-19.
Fact #4 : There Were Only 8-9 People In The Video
If you look carefully at the video, there were only 8-9 lab workers who were standing trial in that courtroom.
There is no evidence of 250 lab workers being arrested in China for falsifying or mishandling PCR testing, never mind working for Western countries to spread COVID-19.
Fact #4 : Shenzhen Nucleus Gene Technology Co Is Under Investigation
Shenzhen Nucleus Gene Technology Go. (核子基因科技) is currently in hot water after on-site inspection by local authorities in Lanzhou (in the northwest province of Gansu) found inconsistencies in their PCR test results.
On November 25, 2022, the Lanzhou Municipal Health Commission reported that when they transferred people who tested positive in tests conducted by Nucleus Gene, some of them had green health codes which meant that their PCR test was negative.
Their investigation found that the staff of the Lanzhou Huaxi laboratory (华曦医学检验灾验室, owned by Nucleus Gene) mistakenly entered the wrong information into the health code database.

Fact #5 : Nucleus Gene Accused Of Multiple Crimes
Chinese media outlets have accused Nucleus Gene of crimes like manipulating test results to create demand for more tests.
Since April 2020, Nucleus Gene has been fined at least 10 times for mishandling test samples to lying and manipulating test results, as well as forging medical certifications.
Nucleus Gene was also fined for hiring unqualified personnel to handle test samples, and wrongly labelling people as COVID-19 positive.
Fact #6 : Zhang Shanshan Allegedly Supervises 38 Testing Companies
After recent Nucleus Gene testing controversy came to light, Chinese netizens began looking into its supervisor, Zhang Shanshan.
They found that Zhang Shanshan allegedly supervises 35-38 medical testing companies across China, most of them only registered in recent months.
In fact, the Lanzhou Huaxi laboratory was only registered in August 2022, with a capital of 10 million yuan (US$1.4 million), and immediately secured a large contract to provide PCR testing in Lanzhou.
Netizens joked that, “Where her company is found, that’s where a pandemic breaks out!”, and “Give an umbrella seller the ability to make rain, will the rain stop?”.
While it is not confirmed, Zhang Shanshan is allegedly the daughter of Zhang Hezi, who owns Nucleus Gene – the parent company which was established in Shenzhen in 2012.
