27 April 2020

The transformed ambulances will ease the process of testing for seniors and people of determination.

Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services has announced the launch of the Mobile Laboratory Unit (MLU). There will be ambulances with free testing for the elderly and people of determination at their homes. This initiative is a part of the programme to combat the COVID-19 spread.

As it was shown, an MLU ambulance is converted vehicle with the latest equipment and technology for patient tests. All medical staff wears high protective gear, while the ambulance is fitted with an auto-sterilization system, thermal scanners, and safe storage cabins for collected samples.

The new service is aimed at decreasing the number of patients in hospital and testing centres, and it will support the country’s efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19. Dubai Media Office urged that the new MLU will “play a key role in reducing pressure on hospitals amidst the Covid-19 crisis and help protect people at high risk.”

The Global Response to Infectious Diseases (GRID) table stated that the UAE’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has ranked in the global top 10 countries above Germany, India, UK, Denmark and the USA. The reaction of all services was quick, and the results show that regulations have been implemented effectively.
