Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 17 December 2020: The Dubai Health Authority is providing COVID-19 testing services at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) for visitors said a high-level official.
Dr. Farida Al Khaja, CEO of Clinical Support Services and Nursing Sector said that the DHA has provided this service for company representatives, exhibitors and exhibition-goers who participate in international conferences that are hosted at DWTC.
She said the move is in line with the Authority's vision to continue to provide easy and accessible COVID-19 testing services across the Emirate.
