Our newly established testing laboratory in Berlin which supports the fight against the Corona virus is already running: In the lab, our employees – more than 140 have volunteered – are able to conduct up to 1,000 additional SARS-CoV-2 tests per day. This helps to slow down the spread of the virus as fewer infections remain undetected and infection chains can be better reconstructed.
Amid COVID-19, as industry leaders we must remember our long-term commitments to ALL our stakeholders.
I continue to be inspired by those on the frontline – the first responders, everyone on Team Dow and all our partners – who continue to keep us safe, keep us informed, and keep us moving forward through this COVID-19 crisis. I applaud you.
I also want to share a heartfelt thank you to my colleagues in our industry.
