Results Within 48 Hours From Drive-Thru Covid-19 Test Allows Quick Medical Attention

Negeri Sembilan, 1 April 2020 – Effective April 1, 2020, Nilai Medical Centre (Nilai Medical) will provide drive-thru Covid-19 testing with results ready within 48 hours. This shorter processing time will give peace of mind to those testing negative while immediate medical action can be taken for positive cases. Nilai Medical’s ‘time-sensitive’ initiative is aimed at supporting the Ministry of Health’s efforts to scale up detection, isolation and treatment; all with the aim to flatten the curve and eliminate the virus.

According to Jasmine Lau, Chief Executive Officer, Nilai Medical Centre, “With the rising number of Covid-19 cases, the 10-minute drive-thru test will encourage the public to get tested if they have any concerns or suspect that they may have been exposed to the virus. The drive-thru concept minimises close contact while also ensuring the safety of our staff. Swabs are taken while individuals remain in their vehicles. If any persons are tested positive, we will immediately notify and direct them for treatment at the appropriate government hospitals.

“With the fast processing drive-thru test, Nilai Medical is able to play an important role to expedite medical attention and isolation. We want to stand in solidarity with our fellow healthcare professionals at government facilities and do our part to help,” she said.

Nilai Medical’s drive-thru Covid-19 testing is available from Wednesdays to Fridays, 2.00pm – 5.00pm. The test is offered at RM580 for the general public and RM500 for senior citizens (aged 60 years and above) and healthcare workers. Call 06-8505 100 or email hotline@nilaimc.com to book your drive-thru time slot.
