Lebanese startup Find A Nurse has launched a new service that lets a patient request at-home PCR testing for COVID-19. The samples are collected by trained, certified healthcare specialists and transferred to the hospital laboratory according to the Standard Operating Procedures set by the Ministry of Public Health in Lebanon (MoPH).
Find A Nurse has set up collaborations with accredited hospitals including AUBMC and LAUMC-RH in order to provide you with accurate at-home COVID-19 PCR testing. These hospitals are MoPH-accredited as eligible for COVID-19 testing using RT-PCR.
The service reduces the risk of contracting the virus while visiting a testing facility and allows the patient to receive a professional sample collection service with maximum safety standards.
The test can be requested by visiting the company’s website or by calling the following mobile number 70 992 813.
The test is available in the greater Beirut area at a cost of 285,000 LBP. Requests from other areas are processed on a case-by-case basis with the possibility of an additional cost for transportation. Further details are available online: https://findanurse.org/covid-19-pcr/
