The Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee has approved a pilot of advanced scanners to identify Covid-19 cases, as part of efforts to further enhance the protection of public health and safety by using the most advanced technology.
The new state-of-the-art scanners will add to existing precautionary measures, with no changes to any existing protocols. The technology screens (without recording) for potential Covid-19 infection and provides immediate results. It is operated at a distance and is effective for mass screening, such as at the entry to public locations.
If the scanner identifies a person as not infected, they are permitted to enter. If the scanner identifies a person as potentially infected, they must conduct a PCR test within 24 hours. All PCR tests related to red results are free.
