Covid-19: Drive-through testing centre opens in Lagos

A drive-through coronavirus testing centre has also opened in Lagos. This is the fourth in the Algarve.

It has been set up at the Escola das Naus car park in a partnership between Lagos Council and the Algarve Health Authority (ARS Algarve).

As in other testing centres, it is only open to people who have been referred by the National Health Service (SNS) as possibly infected with the virus.

People are told to drive through the tent and simply wind down the window for health professionals to collect a sample.

This is the fourth drive-through testing centre to open in the Algarve, with others being located in Portimão, Silves and near the Estádio do Algarve between Loulé and Faro. More are expected soon.
