What are the fastest PCR tests in the UAE..?

Whether you’ve been presented with a last minute travel or event requirement, or you’re just an elite, world-class prcrastiantor — in this brave new world we’re living in, there will be times when you’ll need PCR test results in a hurry.

Many places offer turn around times of 24 hours, but what if you need those results sooner? Some companies are offering result windows of just a few hours, and this could be a lifeline for modern emergencies.
