Rapid PCR tests at OR Tambo International

SA's hard-pressed travel industry is inching towards recovery as foreign airlines resume flights to the country and rapid Covid-19 tests become available at airports.

In what is likely to be a boon to travellers needing quick Covid-19 tests, local biotech firm Next Pathology has set up a centre offering rapid PCR tests at OR Tambo International from Thursday.

The rapid PCR test costs R2,000 with results returned in less than two hours, Next Pathology sales manager Jacky Maulgue told Sunday Times Daily.
