The Apollo diagnostics, a part of the Apollo Health and Lifestyle Pvt. Ltd., has now organized a one-of-a-kind testing method called the 'Drive-Thru .' performs quick and efficient testing and is 100% contactless procedure right from the payment to the test.
The registration of this test can be done at a kiosk at Jubilee Hills Public School. The drive-through test will test up to 250 patients per day and will mainly focus on the residents of Banjara Hills, Jubilee Hills, Attapur, Madhapur, Hitec City, Shaikpet, and Film Nagar. Note that the drive-thru test will only conduct the RT-PCR test and does not conduct the Covid Antigen test after the quarantine and recovery period. The Apollo group has seen a surge in people flocking to various test centers across the city, and with the massive rise of cases, had decided to do something different to ramp up testing figures.
The Apollo Diagnostics, after reviewing the feedback, and efficiency of the drive-thru branch at Jubilee Hills, will decide on opening up more such branches of drive-thru tests across the city. People willing to get themselves tested at the drive-through center will have to complete a registration process by scanning a QR code, giving them a token number. Also, this kiosk will only accept cashless payments of all kinds, after which they will proceed for the test where their sample will be taken, and an invoice will be sent to their registered mobile number. The reports will be sent in 48-72 hours via email or a WhatsApp document. Carrying the government-specified identification to the test center is mandatory.
