The Information & eGovernment Authority (iGA) has announced a new service to the ‘BeAware Bahrain’ app that allows users to upload photos of their COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test results to the app and submit them to relevant authorities at the Ministry of Health.
The Rapid Antigen Test is currently available at pharmacies throughout Bahrain. The service provides a digital channel that allows individuals to communicate quickly with specialized authorities at the Ministry of Health and streamlines test procedures for the public, ensuring quicker testing and results.
Users can select ‘Reporting COVID-19 Test Results’ under the eServices List and enter their ID card numbers. They can then take a photo of the test results, whether positive or negative, upload it, and then enter their phone numbers and send their photos. Once the results are received, an automatic SMS is sent to the user’s phone containing the report’s reference number and the sender will then be contacted by specialists.
The iGA emphasized that the use of the ‘Reporting COVID-19 Test Results’ service is mandatory for all positive cases in order to ensure that they receive the necessary help, to examine the accuracy of the test, their symptoms, and to set a date for a nasal swab test (PCR).
