Dubai Opens Three New Coronavirus PCR Testing Centers

Dubai opens three new Coronavirus PCR testing centers and consequently increases its testing capacity by 1650.

The three new centers are at Al Rashidiya Majlis, Al Hamriya Port Majlis and Jumeirah 1 Port Majlis, and they offer polymerase chain reaction nasal swab tests (PCR) for only Dh150 after Dubai Health Authority (DHA) revised its pricing structure.

With these three new centers, and with the exception of certain private testing centers, Dubai now has five facilities dedicated to Coronavirus testing, the others two being of course at Al Shabab Al Ahli and Al Nasr clubs.

With the development, the Emirate can now test more than 78,000 people daily.

“The new centres were prepared in record time,” said Dr Farida Al Khaja, chief executive of DHA’s clinical support services and nursing sector.

“They will operate seven days a week from 11am to 6pm, with a capacity of 550 examinations per day at each centre.

“The DHA is working continuously to combat the global pandemic and provide the highest levels of health security for the community.

“This is done through preventive steps, including the expansion of laboratory Covid-19 testing.”

The DHA increased capacity with the help of public and private hospitals.

The UAE reported 995 new coronavirus cases on Tuesday.

Authorities said 1,076 patients were cleared of the virus, taking the total number of recoveries to 82,538.

The infections were detected after 98,412 tests were carried out in the past 24 hours.

More than 9.5 million tests have been carried out since the outbreak began as part of a mass screening strategy.

To test for Coronavirus in Dubai for free, among other possible places, visit Atlantis The Palm. Atlantis however doesn’t test Dubai residents for free. This offer is best for the hotel’s guests who are staying with them. They can take a free Covid-19 test before checking out.
