Suzhou Bioni Biotech Co in Zhangjiagang, East China’s Jiangsu province, is working to relieve the nationwide shortage of medical equipment due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus pneumonia.

All production lines have been at full capacity since Jan 24, the Eve of the Chinese Luna New Year, local officials said.

To date, the company has supplied more than 100 medical disinfection machines and 2,000 kilograms of hydrogen peroxide disinfectant to more than 80 institutions, including the Wuhan Institute of Virology of CAS, Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica of CAS, and Shanghai Municipal Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

To cope with the shortage of raw materials and production plants, the local government has helped the company purchase materials from overseas and offered a space of about 200 square meters for production.
