IAEA + COVID-19

IAEA +FAO

For over 20 years, the IAEA, in partnership with the the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) , has trained and equipped experts from all over the world to use the real time RT–PCR method, particularly through its VETLAB Network of veterinary diagnostic laboratories. Recently, this technique has also been employed to diagnose other diseases, such as Ebola, Zika, MERS and SARS, as well as other major animal diseases. It has also been used to detect major zoonotic diseases, which are animal diseases that can also infect humans.
