What should be a time of celebration, the Chinese Lunar New Year has begun on a somber note as a novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak spreads across China. First identified in Wuhan City, the virus now has more than 11,791 confirmed cases throughout China, with several thousand identified in more than 20 countries worldwide.
As part of the pharmaceutical industry, Asymchem is paying close attention to the developing virus. To help the medical personal and institutions at the forefront of the outbreak, Asymchem Group and Asymchem founder, Dr. Hao Hong personally, will donate 3 million RMB to the cause. The aid will be used in resolving medical resource shortages in the area and distributed to designated hospitals in Wuhan City, Hubei Province and the Tianjin Municipality.
