BEIJING, Jan. 14 (Reuters) – China’s Andon Health Co Ltd (002432.SZ) said Friday it has signed a $1.28 billion contract with the US Army Contracting Command to supply COVID-19 self-test kits.
Andon Health’s iHealth Labs Inc unit has agreed to provide home coronavirus antigen testing kits that could serve 250 million people, the company said in a grant application.
The US military’s Contracting Command signed the contract on behalf of the country’s Department of Health and Human Services, Andon Health said.
Earlier this week, iHealth Labs signed a $120 million contract with the New York State Department of Health to provide the self-test kits. It had also received orders totaling $65.3 million from the New York State Department of Health in December, Andon Health said late Wednesday.
Andon said that between December 3, 2021 and January 5, 2022, iHealth Labs also obtained contracts for the kits totaling $148.3 million from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Executive Office of Health and Human Services.
