ZAGREB, March 31 (Hina) – The Andrija Stampar Teaching Institute of Public Health has introduced drive-in testing for coronavirus, the first in Croatia to do so, which will speed up the diagnosis process and increase the number of tests.
“An increased number of tests is the best measure for early diagnosis and prevention of coronavirus infection, hence the new method of testing at the institute will greatly contribute to faster identification of infected persons,” the institute said on Tuesday.
This method of testing means that people do not need to get out of their vehicles, which increases the safety of both the person undergoing the test and the health worker. The institute added that testing will continue to be conducted at the referral of family doctors.
This is just one of the measures the institute and City of Zagreb have taken to additionally protect citizens and part of the numerous activities being implemented each year to improve the quality of life and citizens’ health.
