Transport of Specimens of Coronavirus (Covid-19)
The outbreak of novel coronavirus (Covid-19) has health officials worldwide on alert to ensure that any suspected cases are isolated and managed according to appropriate national health protocols.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has advised that so far, the transport of specimens to laboratories for analysis is working well, although there have been some delays caused by doubts in the classification of specimens of Covid-19 as UN 3373, Biological substance, Category B, where there has been an opinion that the specimens should be UN 2814, i.e. Category A.
Based on the experience of shipping specimens of SARS, swine flu, MERS and other similar types of viruses, WHO and national health authorities such as the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are advising health authorities to ship specimens of Covid-19 as UN 3373, Biological substance, Category B. To ensure that the global response to suspected cases of Covid-19 is as rapid as possible, it is important that specimens can be transported to laboratories for analysis without delay. Please assist in this response by facilitating the movement of specimens offered as UN 3373 and packed in accordance with PI 650.
