Vietnamese-owned company presents 600 COVID-19 test kits to Moldova

Farmacia Orient, a Vietnamese-owned company, has presented 600 made-in-Germany COVID-19 test kits to the National Public Health Agency of Moldova.

A representative from the firm said the pandemic is spreading in almost all countries around the world, including Moldova.  The number of infection cases in the eastern European country is increasing day by day.

According to the Moldovan government's estimate, as of May 2020, more than 30,000 people of the country’s total 3 million might be infected with the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.

Given that situation, Farmacia Orient wants to contribute its efforts in helping the local government, hospitals and health facilities to cope with COVID-19 by donating the test kits.    

Preventive measures applied by the Moldovan government, especially quarantine solutions, have been proving effective, according to the company.

For their part, Moldovan authorities and representatives of the National Public Health Agency thanked the Vietnamese firm for its practical support, which they said, has helped reinforce local trust in winning the fight against COVID-19./.
