China's biotech company BGI group will open two COVID-19 testing labs in Serbia to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic, according to an agreement it signed with the Serbian government Wednesday.The two "most modern, new" labs -- one in Belgrade and the other in the southern city of Nis -- will add a combined daily testing capacity of 3,000 to Serbia, said Prime Minister Ana Brnabic at the signing ceremony.The additional testing capacity is more than triple Serbia's current capability, according to a press release by the Serbian government.
Branislav Nedimovic, Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management signed the deal with Zhu Yanmei, executive director of the BGI Group, and Li Ning, BGI's Vice President, via video conference.The agreement foresees that Serbia provides and adapts the space for the new labs as well as testing kits, while the BGI, headquartered in the southern city of Shenzhen, pledged to supply key instruments.
The lab in Belgrade has already been adapted and will start working in several days, while the other one in Nis, the third-largest Serbian city, will be built anew in 45 days, Brnabic said at the ceremony.
"This is only a part of the enormous support in technology, protective equipment, ventilators, knowledge, and expert assistance that we received from China so far during this struggle [against COVID-19]," she said.Governments are grappling with how to balance public safety against the devastating economic impact of stay-at-home orders that have erased millions of jobs in a matter of weeks.
More than 90,000 people worldwide have died in the virus crisis, which has sent the global economy spiraling and forced billions of people to remain at home as much as possible.As the economic downturn starts to bite, health experts stressed that any premature loosening of restrictions could accelerate the spread of a contagion that has already infiltrated nearly every country.
In France, one of the hardest-hit nations in Europe with more than 10,000 deaths, President Emmanuel Macron will address the nation next week to explain the path forward.The confinement order issued on March 17 "will be extended" beyond the current deadline of April 15, an official close to Macron told AFP.
