However, the DHA states that the AED150 tests are only applicable to government hospitals for the time being.
DHA stresses that the costs for private hospitals should not exceed beyond AED250.
Authorities provided a further discount to the PCR test in Dubai to help it become more accessible to the public and to continue the country’s fight to curb the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
