Drive through PCR test Centre Dubai

The newly opened Expo 2020 PCR testing centre can conduct 10,000 tests per day, with results available in 4 hours.

The authorities have setup a huge drive-through testing facility inorder to accommodate the PCR Covid-19 tests requirements since it is mandatory for unvaccinated visitors to Expo 2020 Dubai.

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has started the five-lane PCR testing facility that can issue 10,000 test results per day. The results of the PCR checking will be issued within four hours.

This announcement was made at the time of visit by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai to the Expo 2020's operations centre on Sunday.

He had reviewed the preparations of multiple departments, including the DHA and Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services (DCAS).

The DHA’s Expo 2020 Emergency Centre will be offering comprehensive healthcare services to the exhibition visitors.

Being held for the first time in the Middle East, Africa and Southeast Asia, the World’s Greatest Show will be starting its six-month programmes from October 1.

Neuro centre of the mega event

Sheikh Mohammed reviewed the processes followed by the main operations centre, which is the base for 134 government and private units in charge of operations, safety and security of the mega event. Members of the units represent over 95 nationalities.

He was briefed on the coordination mechanisms used by the teams based at the centre.

"We promised to organise the most exceptional Expo in the history of the event. Our nation’s talented citizens were able to convert this vision into a comprehensive plan for success, conveying a message to the world that our commitment to excellence makes us an important contributor to shaping the globe’s future,” Sheikh Mohammed said.

“Their unwavering positivity, determination and diligent planning gave us the confidence that our mission will be accomplished.”

AI-powered security

Sheikh Mohammed reviewed the Dubai Police’s preparations for the event. The police are using the latest smart technologies to ensure the highest standards of security. An artificial intelligence (AI)-powered system enables the police to respond to any emergency within a minute.

Free buses

The Dubai Ruler was also briefed about the plans of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to provide public transport facilities. He reviewed the operations of the Dubai Metro Route 2020, which is set to serve up to half-a-million riders per day.

The RTA has deployed 126 buses from nine stations to serve Expo visitors for free. Additionally, shuttle buses will ferry visitors to and from hotels to the Expo venue.
