The UAE’s Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) plans to increase its testing capacity for coronavirus disease (COVID-19) by 72 percent, according to the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.
SEHA confirmed that will be able to provide 7,000 more COVID-19 tests, or over 115,000 a week once Ambulatory Healthcare Services (AHS) opens five new mobile drive-thru test centers in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, and Dubai.
