Drive-through coronavirus testing centre launches in Sharjah

A drive-through coronavirus testing centre has launched near the Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club.

The centre, which is open between 10am and 6pm from Sunday to Thursday, can test 500 people a day.

You can book an appointment by calling 800 1717, or through the mobile app SEHA. You will need to provide your name, ID number, email and phone number before picking an appointment date and time.

Priority will be given to those with symptoms, senior citizens, pregnant women, people with chronic diseases or disabilities, and anyone who has come into contact with confirmed cases.

For those who want to take the test for reassurance only, you can pay Dhs370 for it.

Once you’ve got an appointment, you will need to bring your ID card with you to the centre. You’ll be asked to register before a nurse will come to take a swab from your nose.

The results, which will take between three to five days to arrive, will be sent to you via text message and you can access them through the SEHA app.
