(REUTERS) China’s Andon Health Co Ltd has said on Friday it has signed a contract worth $1.28 billion with the U.S. Army Contracting Command to supply COVID-19 self-test kits, according to Reuters.

“Andon Health’s unit iHealth Labs Inc has agreed to provide at-home coronavirus antigen test kits that can serve 250 million people, the company said in a stock exchange filing,” Reuters reported.

The U.S. Army Contracting Command signed the contract on behalf of the country’s Department of Health and Human Services, Andon Health said.

Earlier in the week, iHealth Labs signed a contract worth $ 120 million with the New York State Department of Health to supply the self-test kits. It had also received orders totaling $65.3 million sent from the New York State Department of Health in December, Andon Health said late on Wednesday.

Andon said iHealth Labs also obtained contracts for the kits worth a combined $148.3 million from The Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Executive office of Health and Human Services between Dec. 3, 2021 and Jan. 5, 2022.
