COVID-19 testing

Together, we fight the virus - Covid-19 Testing

Consider the outbreak of Covid-19 cases worldwide; many of us have become more aware of our health conditions. However, with the overwhelming information and unclear details on testing options or procedures, it may become one of the hesitations for many in taking the Covid-19 screening test. To help to fight against the Covid-19 pandemic and minimise the risk of community transmission, Marina Medical now provides deep-throat saliva, nasopharyngeal and blood test for Covid-19 screening.


“Early testing and detection are very important”


Why is testing for Covid-19 important?

As some people infected with COVID-19 only have mild symptoms or none at all, we advised individuals to seek medical advice promptly when feeling unwell (even if having very mild symptoms only).  Appropriate diagnosis and management can then be given at the earliest possible time.

Besides suspected cases, who else would consider taking the test?

Individuals who:

  • need to provide medical documentation for travel, work or school
