Nnew episode in the test saga. More precisely in the financial fight between the Liege company ZenTech and the Belgian State. As a reminder, the authorities ordered 3.65 million serological tests (which detect the presence of anti-Covid antibodies in the blood) last spring. Several million tests have already been produced but they have never been delivered because the state has still not paid a single penny. The total price of the order is estimated between 15 and 20 million euros.
ZenTech should have already received a first part for delivery of the first batch of 1.2 million tests in May. The authorities refuse to pay and Walloon society has visibly lost patience. It announces in a press release that it is citing the Belgian State in summary proceedings so that it executes the payment of this installment.
