Coronavirus screening centres across Abu Dhabi will offer free PCR tests for children throughout September.

The decision extends to all public and private clinics across the emirate, the government said.

Saliva tests, primarily for young children, are also available in all centres run by G42 Healthcare and Seha, Abu Dhabi's public hospital operator.

Pupils returning to school required a PCR test before the first day of school, and must take two PCR tests in September, 14 days apart.
