IAEA unveils ZODIAC project to co-ordinate Covid-19 response

By JP Casey

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has unveiled a new project to aid in the management of Covid-19 across its member states, in the latest statement to its board of governors.

The announcement, made by director general Rafael Mariano Grossi, highlights the Zoonotic Disease Integrated Action project (ZODIAC), which will be the primary means by which IAEA member states receive support from the body to manage the spread of Covid-19. The project will establish what Mariano Grossi called “a global network of national diagnostic laboratories” to aid in testing and monitoring efforts, and provide equipment, such as personal protective gear, to those in need.

“With national laboratories connected to a regional network, and regional networks linked through a global platform, decision-makers will receive up-to-date, user-friendly information that will enable them to act quickly,” said Mariano Grossi.
