Government-funded PCR testing available at some clinics beginning today; people testing positive with rapid antigen tests or with symptoms urged to get PCR tests at these clinics

On May 6, the Central Epidemic Command Center announced that it has allowed clinics to provide PCR testing services in order to increase epidemic prevention capacity at the primary care level and to increase access to COVID-19 testing for people requiring testing.

As of now, 190 clinics have joined the testing collaboration program and have been included in the list of COVID-19 designated community testing sites; these clinics can provide government-funded PCR testing for people eligible for such testing, including people testing positive with rapid antigen tests (at-home rapid tests included) and individuals with COVID-19 symptoms and assessed by a doctor to be suspected of having the disease. The list of such clinics is available to the public for viewing at Members of the public are requested to make an appointment and confirm their appointment as well as status of their appointment with such a clinic by phone before visiting the clinic.
