COVID-19 Emergency: Ambassador Eisenberg Praises Efforts by Italian Companies

Rome, March 19, 2020

We are delighted the Italian company Copan Diagnostics continues to produce COVID-19 testing swabs in sufficient quantity to satisfy Italian need and sell abroad.

Italian private enterprise is helping to save lives around the world. I applaud this effort. The US will continue to buy these swabs from Italian companies as needed. The US and Italy have always worked as the closest of partners.
