According to the Ministry of Public Health, starting tomorrow Thursday 6 January at 4 pm, a new Drive-Through Testing Center will open in Lusail to significantly expand capacity and enhance accessibility for COVID-19 swabbing. It will be located opposite Lusail Circuit.

The new 10-lane in-vehicle screening center will provide only PCR test, and not the Rapid Antigen test that PHCC will continue to provide.

The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) has also announced a set of updates to its COVID-19 testing protocol to enhance access to COVID-19 tests and ensure tests are processed in the most efficient and effective manner.
