FRANKFURT, Oct 7 (Reuters) - Swiss drugs and diagnostics
firm Roche said on Wednesday it was aiming solve by the
end of next week problems at a new warehouse which have delayed
the dispatch of COVID-19 testing products.
"We are confident that the plans we have put in place will
deliver significant improvements by the weekend to the supply of
the tests affected by these logistical issues. We will be well
on the way to resolution by the end of next week," Geoff Twist,
General Manager of Roche Diagnostics UK and Ireland, said in a
written statement to Reuters.
Britain's COVID-19 testing system faced more disruption on
Wednesday after Roche said problems at a new warehouse had
caused a significant drop in processing capacity.
