S. Korea Donates COVID-19 Test Kits to Romania


SEOUL, May 26 (Korea Bizwire)South Korea and Romania continue to engage in cooperation to fight against the pandemic.

The South Korean Embassy in Romania said Wednesday it had donated some 600,000 Korean-made COVID-19 test kits to the Romanian government.

This follows the European country’s donation of surplus vaccines to South Korea last summer when the country was dealing with a vaccine shortage.


Bucharest donated and sold some 2 million shots of Moderna and Pfizer vaccines to South Korea.

Seoul vowed to donate Korean-made medical equipment in return and the test kits were given to Romania as part of the commitment.

Romania imported 15 million euros (US$16 million) worth of real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test kits from South Korea in March 2020 during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.
