Abu Dhabi Intensidies PCR Tests in These Areas

The Abu Dhabi Crisis, Emergencies and Disasters Committee announced on Tuesday its plan to carry out an extensive COVID-19 testing campaign in five districts in and near the city.

Screening will be increased in Al Danah, Al Shawamekh, Bani Yas, Al Shamkha,  and Al Zahiyah, also known as Tourist Club.

Medics knock on someone’s door, register each person in the home and conduct the PCR tests, which take less than two minutes.

The chief executive of Tamouh, Abdullah Al Rashdi, said the purpose of the drive was to screen as many people as possible.

The teams often work at night, when more people are at home.

The UAE announced 2,022 new cases of coronavirus on Tuesday, bringing the country’s total number of infections to 487,697.
