Kuwait will open a new drive-through PCR testing station to expand the COVID-19 testing capacity of the Arab country, the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) said Thursday.
The new PCR testing station will be launched on Sept. 20 in Sabhan Area, KUNA quoted Fahad Al-Qemlas, Director of Public Health in the Kuwait’s Ministry of Health (MoH), as saying.
The station will conduct swab tests and is part of the MoH’s efforts to conduct as many tests as possible to contribute to curbing the spread of the coronavirus, Fahad Al-Qemlas said, adding that people wishing to conduct swab tests could make an appointment through the ministry’s website.
The new facility, in full compliance with health and safety measures, could test up to 1,000 people per day at its initial phase, he noted.
It is the third drive-through testing station following the ones at Jazeera Airways Park & Fly facility at the Kuwait International Airport and Jaber Al-Ahmad Stadium, he added.
