Dubai authorities have significantly decreased the cost of COVID-19 tests again

The cost of COVID-19 PCR tests have been reduced in Dubai.

The Dubai Health Authority announced the cost of tests in government facilities are now Dhs150.

“To encourage pre-emptive medical examinations as a precautionary and preventive measure, we reduced the cost of #COVID19 PCR tests to AED150 in DHA facilities,” the authority announced on their official Twitter page.

Meanwhile, the cost of PCR tests in private health facilities in the emirate remains at Dhs250, which is still at a reduced cost to what it previously was.

A couple of weeks ago the decision was made to decrease the cost of the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test, where a nasal swab is taken in order to detect any traces of coronavirus.

A reduction of more than Dhs100 has been implemented, making the cost of COVID-19 PCR tests now Dhs250 throughout Dubai in all licensed public and private healthcare establishments.

The previous cost of a PCR test was Dhs370.
