How It Works
Qualified doctors enrolled with Ingress Healthcare are conducting COVID-19 screening consultations. During the consultation, the doctor will assess whether the patient is exhibiting symptoms or signs of COVID-19 and if they meet the criteria for testing. The doctor will also be able to counsel the patient and answer any questions they may have.
If the patient is symptomatic (shows signs of COVID-19), the doctor will test the patient on-site.The test will then be sent to PathCare.
The reason for only testing symptomatic individuals is that the test results may reflect as negative before the development of symptoms in patients with COVID-19, furthermore testing patients inappropriately (not yet symptomatic) may rapidly saturate testing capacity.
If you suspect you or a loved one has been exposed or is carrying COVID-19, a screening will confirm whether you need to undergo testing. Testing is held in a safe and secure area to avoid cross-contamination.
