Ajman has launched an initiative to provide free PCR test services for community members in the comfort of their homes.

Titled 'We reach you for your health', the move is the emirate's latest bid to safeguard the safety and health of its citizens and residents against the coronavirus.

The campaign will aim to reach different groups of society at their homes to provide them with the examination services. The elderly, those with chronic diseases and other vulnerable categories will be prioritised.

Specialised medical staff will visit various residential areas of the emirate and conduct the PCR tests in order to reduce the time and effort otherwise involved in personally going to examination centres.

The Crisis, Disasters and Emergency Team urged the public to cooperate with the screening team to ensure the safety and health of all, and help limit the spread of the pandemic.
