Linkwell Corporation Runs 24/7 Disinfectant Operations to Support China's Earthquake Relief Efforts
Date:5/23/2008

SHANGHAI, China, May 23 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Linkwell Corporation (Linkwell) (OTC Bulletin Board: LWLL), a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of healthcare related disinfectants in China, announced today that it was running 24/7 operations in support of China's earthquake relief efforts. The Chinese government, non-government organizations (NGOs) and even individuals have mobilized on an unprecedented scale in response to the earthquake in the southwestern Sichuan Province.

According to Linkwell Chairman and CEO, Mr. Xuelian Bian, the Company's response compares to the scale and efforts given during the 2002 - 2003 SARS epidemic. High level operations are expected to last through mid-June. Mr. Bian commented, ''We are working with several emergency organizations, with authorization from the MOH Emergency Response Office, to provide disinfectant training and products throughout the affected region.''

According to independent news sources, More than 5,000 health personnel are working to disinfect China's earthquake-hit villages, and doctors and nurses are stationed round the clock in refugee camps to try to prevent survivors from falling sick. Linkwell's wholly owned subsidiary, LiKang Disinfectant Company, is providing emergency training for disinfectant operators and disinfectant products, primarily to NGOs, including the Red Cross and the Communist Youth League. It is expected that the MOH will continue to recognize Linkwell as an authorized provider of products and services in future health crises.

According to health reports, hot, humid weather and overcrowded temporary shelters have heightened the danger of epidemics among survivors. World Health Organization official Arturo Pesigan warned: ''Unsafe food and a lack of access to safe water, facilities for personal hygiene and safe sanitation arrangements are creating a real risk of outbreaks of infectious disease at any time.''

LiKang manufacturing operations are going around the clock to meet disinfection requirements and emergency support teams are on call 24/7. The products are distributed via military transportation to the emergency areas; usually by air. ''We are proud to have such a vital role and help in this relief effort,'' said Mr. Bian, ''The products we are providing are used to control infection in the environment and on material surfaces and hand disinfection.'' Products for the relief effort include Aiershi and Lvshaxing disinfectant tablets, which are used in environment and surface disinfection; and Jifro disinfectant gel, which is used in hand disinfection.

LiKang Disinfection's manufacturing capacity is 300 metric tons of tablet and 180 metric tons of powder disinfectant annually. The average manufacturing cycle for the tablets and powder, from formulation to finished product, is one day. Tablets are packaged in 50, 100 and 200 tablet bottles, while powder disinfectants are packaged in 250 gram and 500 gram containers.

In response to emergency relief efforts, the disinfection and pest control training and licensing program has converted to emergency training for disinfection operators going to the disaster areas. Once this is completed, the Company will revert to normal operations. Other than the training program, the Company does not anticipate any negative effects on its other business functions.

The May 12th earthquake registered a 7.92 Richter scale magnitude and has left more than 74,000 dead or missing, 247,000 injured and 5 million homeless. More than 100,000 troops and police have been deployed to help survivors and to rescue people trapped by rubble and landslides.
