Only at government hospitals for now, DHA confirmed.
The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) on Tuesday announced that it has reduced the price of the nasal swab Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) tests for Covid-19 to Dh150.
However, the reduced prices will only apply to government hospitals for now, DHA confirmed.
Private hospitals and clinics will charge not more than Dh250 for the test, the authority added.
DHA had brought down the price of Covid-19 PCR tests to Dh250 for private and public clinics and hospitals on September 13.
It said the move is aimed at making the tests more accessible to the public and encouraging people to get screened as a preventive measure.
