On the past few days, due to the outbreak of COVID-19 epidemic, the demand of COVID-19 testing services of customers has risen dramatically. It also led to an increase in the number of COVID-19 testing samples at FV Hospital. As the result of the continuous and overloaded operation, one of the two PCR testing machines broke down. FV Hospital had to announce the suspension of the service for a few days. Currently, this PCR testing machine has been repaired and is fully operational. The COVID-19 testing service at FV Hospital has returned to normal operation to serve the demand for testing of our patients and customers.
Currently, COVID-19 testing services at FV Hospital will be available 24/7 and we also provide services to collect samples on site by appointment. FV Hospital’s COVID-19 testing service has many advantages:
