Vivera Pharmaceuticals Selected to Screen Travellers to the UAE for COVID-19
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Oct. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vivera Pharmaceuticals has been selected by Pure Health, the largest laboratory network in the UAE, to test airline passengers flying into the United Arab Emirates in accordance with the UAE's requirement for travelers to prove they are not infected with COVID-19. Pure Health has been appointed by the UAE's government to launch this pioneering project to promote safe travel.
Vivera Pharmaceuticals' partners also offer concierge services for patient convenience.
"We are committed to supporting Pure Health in their efforts to control the COVID-19 pandemic and to assist in the facilitation of safe travel protocols for passengers flying into the UAE utilizing Vivera's RT-PCR tests for COVID-19," said Paul Edalat, CEO of Vivera Pharmaceuticals. "With our large network of provider partners, we are ideally placed to successfully deliver on this very important initiative and we are grateful for the trust placed in us by Pure Health."
Partnered with CLIA-certified and CAP-accredited specimen collection and laboratory sites across Southern California, Vivera Pharmaceuticals' partners also offer concierge services for patient convenience.
"Throughout the global pandemic, the UAE has entrusted Pure Health with safeguarding it from incoming COVID-19 threats. This responsibility requires us to ensure we only partner with verified and accredited facilities around the world, thus why we have partnered with Vivera Pharmaceuticals to make certain that the screening process is of the highest quality and to ensure an excellent customer service experience for the travelers," said Pramodh B.N., Head of Commercial Operations at Pure Health.
UAE-issued regulations require all travelers flying into the UAE to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test. Travelers without such a certificate are refused entry on to the flight.
The system is similar to the ESTA process in the United States. The traveler visits screening.purehealth.ae, chooses a testing location, selects a time slot, and completes the test at the agreed time and place. Test results are then transmitted to the UAE authorities who use the data to cross-reference and authorize arriving travelers against the border control database.
