Authorities in Abu Dhabi have announced plans to expand screenings for COVID-19 in densely populated areas across the emirate.
The tests will be conducted free-of-charge in residential blocks and housing complexes with large populations.
The Department of Health-Abu Dhabi is implementing the initiative in partnership with other relevant entities.
They have already started the process of evaluating the locations where the tests have to be carried out.
