The tests will be produced by a laboratory run by an innovative Polish company called Warsaw Genomics.

The bank’s donation comes to PLN 3 million (EUR 660,000, USD 710,000), public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.

In total, the bank and its affiliates have channeled PLN 14 million to help contain the coronavirus, according to the news agency.

The money has mostly been used to buy medical supplies for hospitals and healthcare facilities.

Meanwhile, Polish state-run copper giant KGHM has paid for a planeload of face masks, respirators and protective gowns from China as the coronavirus pandemic spreads.

Several other Polish state-run firms have also pitched in to help fight the coronavirus.

According to Deputy Prime Minister and State Assets Minister Jacek Sasin, Poland's state-owned companies have so far transferred over PLN 70 million to aid the battle against the coronavirus.
