COVID-19: Singapore launches drive-through test site for 'priority groups'

Jun 03, 2020 | 🚀 Fathership
SINGAPORE: A drive-through site for COVID-19 swab tests has been launched in Singapore to test "Priority groups" for the coronavirus.

At One Farrer Hotel, cars entering the test site will park head-first in a large parking lot.

Mr Madhavan said the hotel could have been chosen as a drive-through test site due to the size and isolated nature of its drive-through area, as well as its proximity to Farrer Park Hospital.

SWAB TEST BOOTHS. Located adjacent to the drive-through lots are swab test booths for patients who turn up on foot.

According to Esco Aster's website, the test booths are designed for "Mass swabbing" of potential COVID-19 patients, and can test about 12 to 15 patients an hour.
