A medical laboratory in Henan province said on its WeChat account on Wednesday that it had communicated with government departments to resolve problems involving payment for COVID-19 testing and will continue to provide services.

On Tuesday, a notice released by Xuchang CapitalBoi Runkang Medical Laboratory roused public concern. It said its headquarters had informed it to suspend receipt of all COVID-19 nucleic acid samples from all counties and districts in Xuchang starting on Friday because of financial difficulties.

"Since January 2021, the laboratory has been undertaking large-scale COVID-19 nucleic acid tests in urban areas, and the cost of reagents, supplies and labor is high," the notice said. "Currently, we haven't received timely payment, bringing us great operating pressure."

No further details were released.
