LOTUS, a health care centre set up under Vietnam-Poland cooperative efforts, is supporting Vietnamese people in the European country free of charge in handling testing procedures for COVID-19.

The centre began the assistance on May 25th, as overseas Vietnamese in Poland have significant demand for coronavirus testing.

Those with ambiguous symptoms must pay for the tests, and many others, especially manual laborers, have encountered difficulties in accessing testing services due to limited language skills and the lack of a bank account.

LOTUS will provide free support for Vietnamese people to complete procedures for registering for tests at the Diagnostycka laboratory, including registering online, completing paperwork, paying fees online, and preparing for testing.

Tests for COVID-19 at medical centres in Warsaw currently cost PLN534 (USD131) each. Results are available in 48 hours or 72 hours on the weekend.

Established in October 2009 as a joint stock company, LOTUS is the first concern of its kind set up under the two countries’ cooperative efforts in Poland.

The Vietnamese community in Poland has some 25,000 people.

The number of confirmed coronavirus infections in Poland increased by 236 since May 25th and reached 21,867 on May 26th morning. Another six people have died, bringing the death toll to 1,013./.
