Abu Dhabi Opens First Drive-Through Test Centre - Coming Soon in UAE
30 March 2020

As part of preventive measures to curb the spread of the COVID-19, Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) launches the first drive-through lab.

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces has opened a first drive-through centre in Abu Dhabi. By the order, local authorities will launch such centres across UAE to test for Coronavirus.

The first test centre is based in Abu Dhabi, it will operate daily between 08:00 AM and 08:00 PM. It takes five minutes to carry out the test with a qualified member of the medical staff, using the latest methods in healthcare technology. Before coming to the test centre, individuals should make a pre-screening appointment.

SEHA created the four-lane facility to provide the most effective diagnostics and enable proactive measures to deal with the coronavirus outbreak. Having a total capacity of 600 tests daily, all the procedures are carried out on individuals whilst they stay in the vehicle.

In the next 10 days, test centres will be opened in Dubai, Sharjah (to also serve Ajman and Umm al Quwain), Ras Al Khaimah, Al Fujairah, Al Ain and Al Dhafra to provide rapid-response tests for UAE’s citizens and residents using the latest medical technology.
