People undergoing drive-through test won’t get grey colour in Ehteraz

Jun 25, 2020

Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) has confirmed that people who undergo testing at COVID-19 drive-through testing centers will not get grey colour in Ehteraz application, as the colour will remain green after taking the medical swab.

PHCC has established three COVID-19 drive-through testing centers in Al Waab, Al Thumama, and Leabaib, adding that only those who are invited are examined, as this service is not available to the public and it is limited only to those who meet the agreed national standards, as examination will be conducted only for cases that have received the invitation.

Director of Cancer Early Screening Program at the PHCC, Dr. Sheikha Abu Sheikha, said in response to some inquiries regarding examination from inside the vehicles, where some individuals who are over 50 years  of age or who have a chronic disease are contacted to take their samples. She added that the persons who are invited to the test are concerned about the possibility of changing the colour in Ehteraz application from green to grey, stressing that won’t happen until the results of the tests appear, as the color of the application will be linked to the result directly.

She explained that people who won’t come to undergo tests despite receiving invitation won’t have any procedures against them.
