"The spread of COVID-19 has posed an unprecedented global challenge. In the face of this war without smoke, Zai Lab responded quickly and has taken various measures to ensure the health and safety of our employees as well as the continuity of our product supply to meet patients’ needs. At the same time, we have supported efforts both in China and worldwide by donating funds and urgently needed medical supplies to support the front line relief efforts. Let us work together to tide over the difficulties and win the battle against the pandemic as soon as possible."
When the pandemic began, we established a panel to closely monitor and quickly respond to the development of COVID-19 so as to ensure the safety of our employees. We followed the guidance of health authorities and adopted stringent pandemic prevention measures. For example, we made teleworking mandatory during the most serious period of the pandemic, suspended non-essential business travel and group meetings, and limited on-site visitors. We regularly disinfected offices, implemented temperature screenings and provided protection equipment for each employee, including N95 face masks, disposable medical masks, disinfectant and wet wipes.
We are giving careful consideration to balance the continuity of support to our patients with the health and safety of our colleagues. Our product supply chain is robust, and we are closely monitoring the situation. We will continue to collaborate with our partners and take measures to ensure the needs of our patients are met during the pandemic.
COVID-19 has presented a global challenge to Zai Lab and the world, and has required concerted global efforts to overcome. As an innovative biopharmaceutical company, Zai Lab is committed to contributing to the global response. Since January, we have made several donations of funds and urgently needed medical supplies to support the community and front line relief efforts. Our support is still ongoing.· In January 2020, Zai Lab donated RMB 1 million to the Hubei Charity Federation for coronavirus relief efforts in Hubei Province.
