(AmericanProsperity.com) – An explosive new report is once again drawing attention to concerns about Chinese companies siphoning private data from Americans. iHealth Labs, a facility headquartered in Mountain View, California, provides the government with COVID-19 testing kits under a recent White House initiative. Reporters at National Pulse say it has deep financial ties to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
In an exclusive report first published on February 1, 2022, National Pulse writer Natalie Winters reveals evidence that she says proves the CCP once praised the company that owns iHealth Labs, Andon Health, for falling in line with its orders.

In a letter initially posted in Chinese on the Andon Health website but later deleted, the CCP allegedly commended Andon Health for their hard work on a project involving the supply of infrared thermometers. The facility also won points for “consciously obey[ing] the joint defense of the State Council.”
The CCP also thanked Andon Health for serving as a “model group” in the middle of the pandemic during the Tianjin Municipal Commendation Conference. The event’s attendance list included more than 150 Communist Party loyalists and over 100 well-known grassroots organizations tied to China’s military.
Besides kudos alone, Andon Health’s willingness to play ball with the CCP produced several other benefits. It also received millions of dollars in investments from Xiaomi, a Chinese company blacklisted by US officials over CCP ties some time ago.
As a subsidiary of Andon Health, iHealth Labs allegedly falls under the scope of China’s National Intelligence Law Article 7. This piece of legislation mandates that any organization or citizen engaging in foreign business dealings with China will cooperate with state intelligence upon request.
The main concern here is that iHealth Labs and other Chinese-backed COVID-19 testing kit manufacturers, including BGI Group, may harvest American citizens’ private data. At least one former US official indicated that the test kits were being used to “collect, store and exploit” biometric information.
iHealth Labs received more than $2.1 billion in contract deals for at-home COVID-19 test kits from the US government. Over $1 billion of that money came directly from the Department of Defense (DOD).
