PCR test in Dubai now only costs AED250


- Advertisment -

The price to get a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test in Dubai has been reduced to AED250. 

The reduced price cost was announced by the Dubai Health Authority. 

The move makes it more accessible to the public and encourages them to have tested for the coronavirus. 

PCR tests are used to directly detect the presence of an antigen, rather than the presence of the body’s immune response, or antibodies. By detecting viral RNA, which will be present in the body before antibodies form or symptoms of the disease are present, the tests can tell whether or not someone has the virus very early on.
