2,000 coronavirus tests laboratory Ana Brnabic Chen Bo

Our country is now testing between 3,000 and 3,500 people a day, and thanks to new labs in Belgrade and in Niš, which is under construction and also with the support of Chinese companies BGI and Zi Jin, those capacities to be doubled, Prime Minister Ana Brnabić said.

With these capacities, we will be among the first two countries in this part of Europe when it comes to testing, she said.

The Prime Minister said that this lab would help to launch antibodies soon to determine the resistance of the population to this virus.

According to her, after this donation, Serbia will have the best and most up-to-date laboratory in this part of Europe, after fighting the coronavirus.

The Prime Minister noted that Serbia has shown that it has a solid healthcare system, excellent scientists, researchers, engineers, but also great friends, such as China, at times of greatest need.

This is a very important day for Serbia, not only in the fight against COVID-19 but also a phenomenal basis for what we want to do in the future – full digitalisation and strengthening of our health, for it to be among the best in Europe, said PM Brnabić.

Two state-of-the-art laboratories, donated by China to Serbia to assist in the fight against coronavirus, were shipped from the country a few days ago.

The second lab, which will be installed in Niš, will be able to perform 1,000 tests a day.
