Drive-through swabbing hubs in Qatar will help detect COVID-19 cases early: PHCC

The drive-through swab hubs that test random people for COVID-19 in Qatar will lead to early detection of the infection and shed light on the extent of the community spread in the country彩票信誉平台, the  Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) has said.
The drive-through hubs are located at the PHCC centres in Al Thumama, Al Waab and Leabaib.
Participants of the invitation-only test will be randomly selected based on age, gender and ethnicity and the selected participant will be notified through a text message from the PHCC. 
Invitation does not mean the participant is a suspect patient and participation is entirely voluntary, it added.
The aim of this exercise is to conduct a community survey and gain more insight into community transmission and asymptomatic cases, which will in turn inform policy decisions.
Nearly 2,500 random people were tested through the hubs on May 6 and 7. They were operationalised again from May 31 and runs from 2pm to 10pm.
