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.
