Hyderabad-based Tenet Diagnostics has launched a drive-through RT-PCR COVID-19 and COVID-related blood tests facility at Hitex, Madhapur that is available from 9 am to 5 pm.
About 250 people are expected to utilise this service, and the capacity and locations are to be increased in the near future as and when the need arises, Tenet Diagnostics said in a press note issued today.
To utilise this facility, one needs to drive into it and remain seated in his/her car. A phlebotomist will take the sample from the person. Once it is collected, the person will receive a WhatsApp message with details and a digital invoice. Tenet Diagnostics will deliver the report within the time frame of 24-48 hours.
The person who is giving the sample needs to submit documents like PAN or Aadhar Card during registration. Payment is required to be made via UPI/card/Google Pay, etc at the drive-through.
In the drive-through process, people go through the entire testing process in a matter of few minutes thereby limiting the exposure of themselves and frontline workers to the virus. Furthermore, the process prevents asymptomatic patients from contaminating.
