From design to construction, the workshop follows the relevant biosafety regulations and standards of China and the World Health Organization, and introduces experienced design teams from China and abroad. From building to maintaining, the production is in accordance with the high-level biosafety protection standard. The construction of the plant took only 2 months, and the construction was completed on April 15, 2020.
The construction of the high-level biosafety facilities and supporting laboratory complex of the Wuhan Institute of Biological Products of China National Biotech was completed on July 1. It strives to obtain relevant inspections and have production conditions as soon as possible.
The company says that China Biotech Group-Wuhan Institute of Biological Products will also become the world's only biological product R&D and production unit with a high-level biosafety R&D laboratory and production facility complex.
After the production plants of the two research institutes in Beijing and Wuhan are put into use, they will be able to guarantee that the annual production capacity of the COVID-19 inactivated vaccine will reach 220 million doses.
