The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) on Thursday opened a drive-through Covid-19 testing centre near Lusail Sports Complex to significantly expand capacity and enhance accessibility for swabbing.
The new 10 lane drive-through centre will provide only PCR tests with capacity to swab up to 5,000 people a day. Rapid Antigen Tests will continue to be provided at the Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) health centres.

The new drive-through testing centre will be open seven days a week from 8am to 10pm and continue to operate as a PCR test centre as demand for Covid-19 testing remains exceptionally high due to the Omicron wave, the MoPH said Wednesday.

Last entry to the centre will be at 9pm daily. Those who do not own a car can visit the centre in a taxi. The process cannot be completed on foot. QID, Health Card and Ehteraz app are a must. All visitors to the centre should also wear a mask.
