The Department of Health in Abu Dhabi has announced it will provide coronavirus tests for free in areas with high-density populations across the emirate, state news agency WAM reported.

The campaign, which is part of the UAE’s national screening program, aims to test those who live in crowded housing.

The UAE earlier committed to ensuring easy access to healthcare services for all people, including those who are most vulnerable to the pandemic.

The new initiative comes as the country records 726 new cases of COVID-19, taking total number of infections to 33,896.
