PCR testing centres across the UAE are witnessing an increase in the number of residents queuing up to get tested.

The UAE health ministry recently announced that daily Covid-19 cases have more than doubled in a week, with authorities noting an increase in hospitalisation rates of infected people.

Authorities also reduced the validity of the Green Pass on the AlHosn from 30 days to 14. This means fully vaccinated residents will get a 14-day Green Pass after receiving a negative Covid-19 PCR test result.

Doctors are attributing the rise in cases due to everyone’s casual attitude towards Covid-19 protocols and are emphasising the importance of following the mask rule and getting tested if they display Covid symptoms.

As per current guidelines, a minimum of 10 days of home isolation is still recommended if one tests positive.

Here’s a list of a few testing centres or home testing facilities that provide the service at less than Dh100 in Dubai.
