Tamouh Healthcare has announced that it will open its second new tent for laser-based DPI screening in Seih Shoaib ‘after the checkpoint’ on Sunday to mitigate the crowd being experienced at the first tent in Ghantoot area.
The DPI technology has been adopted recently to detect suspected cases of COVID-19 before entering the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, as it shows result in a few seconds.
The move comes to preserve public health and to curb the spread of the virus.
Tamouh explained that the new tent will be three times larger than the first one, and will be allocated to families only so that they can serve them better.
While, labors will continue to be prohibited from entering or exiting the emirate as per an official decision issued by the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Committee for the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Due to high demand for the laser-based DPI screening to enter Abu Dhabi, the committee stressed the necessity of planning and conducting checks in advance whenever possible to avoid any possible congestion or delay.
The new tent will have the capacity to serve 2,400 appointments daily.
Meanwhile, Travellers with a negative COVID19- test (PCR) result will continue to be allowed to enter the emirate within 48 hours from receiving the result, the Committee stated.
Those wishing to enter Abu Dhabi can register to book an appointment via the website. The process takes a few minutes to enter name, Emirates ID number, phone number, date of birth, country, city and nationality for residents, Tamouh added.
During the past days, the first tent was allocated to families only due to the large turnout of workers who flocked to the tent for the screening in order to enter Abu Dhabi.
It will be available for all following the opening of the new tent, which will be allocated to families only, Tamouh confirmed.
