The United Arab Emirates has launched a coronavirus home testing program for “people of determination,” the UAE’s term for people with disabilities.
Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan announced on Twitter on Sunday.
“As the UAE continues to work to prevent the spread of COVID-19, I applaud today’s launch of the National Home Testing Program for People of Determination,”
“It is essential that the UAE continues to ensure all segments of the community have adequate access to testing facilities.”
As of last week, the UAE completed over half a million screenings over several weeks after launching 13 mobile testing sites across the country, according to Health Minister Abdul Rahman al-Owais. He added test numbers will double over the coming period.
