The decision was made to encourage more people in Dubai to get tested for the virus
The price of Covid-19 tests in Dubai has been slashed to AED 250, announced the Dubai Health Authority (DHA). Previously, the typical cost of a PCR nasal swab test was AED 370.
On Sunday, DHA reduced the price of PCR nasal swabs in both private and public medical facilities by more than AED 100.
The move part of the authority's precautionary and preventive measures, as it aims to encourage more residents, citizens, and visitors in the emirate to be more proactive with their Covid-19 tests.
DHA said they would spare no effort to combat Covid-19 to ensure the safety of the UAE community.
The decision follows a similar announcement by the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) to cut down the costs of Covid-19 tests.
