Screening centres are spread in the UAE capital, including Zayed Sports City and the Corniche as mass testing of the public is being highlighted in the country’s efforts to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
Proof of a negative PCR test is also required for entering Abu Dhabi from the other emirates, and many employees have to take regular PCR tests to attend work.
To date, over 54 million PCR tests have been done so far across the UAE and people have been asked to contact the number 80050 for information about Seha’s PCR testing services. (AW)
