New testing lab opened in Uman, the project was supported by the Jewish community
Roughly one half of the lab's cost was covered by Jewish community.
The governor of Cherkassy region Alexander Skichko, Uman city mayor Irina Pletneva and the head of Uman district state administration, Igor Miklashuk were present at the grand opening of the PCR-lab.
Jewish community was represented by the Chief Rabbi of Ukraine Moshe Reuven Azman and the head of charity fund ‘Kvitna’, Uriel Stern. The Jewish community provided nearly a half of the cost of the lab – more than 2.8 million of hryvnya.
The new PCR-testing lab has a throughput of 500 tests per day and may, in case of emergency, perform even more tests.
The Chief Rabbi of Ukraine Moshe Reuven Azman granted the lab a big bundle of protective masks decorated with Ukrainian national symbols.
