Coronavirus: 200 tests per day at Dubai’s five-minute COVID-19 drive thru test centre
The first five minute drive through testing centre set up by Al Futtaim Health at Festival City since March 29, is already conducting anything between 100-200 COVID-19 nasal swab tests per day. The testing facility is free for all Al Futtaim’s 20,000 employees and open for the eligible UAE residents at Dh 370 which is the cost price of the test.
Al Futtaim Health is rolling out its own drive-thru testing stations at six different locations – Silicon Oasis, Al Ghusais, International City, Discovery Gardens, Al Warqa and of course, Festival City will go live for members of the general public by Tuesday April 7.
These are expected to build up capacity of close to 1,000 tests per day once launched.
In addition, during such challenging times, Al Futtaim Health is supporting other healthcare providers technically and operationally as they manage the COVID-19 pandemic by using the collective expertise of its healthcare professionals and putting it at the service of the UAE, its citizens, and residents.
