Heilongjiang Provincial Hospital in Harbin, capital city of China’s northernmost Heilongjiang province, launched a service offering nucleic acid tests for COVID-19 starting on May 7, according to local officials.
Citizens needing the test can enter the novel coronavirus pneumonia screening clinic internet page of the hospital for appointment registrations. There, they can fill out a request for the appointment time and other requirements and complete an online payment.

After making the arrangements, locals can complete nucleic acid, antibody, lung CT and routine blood tests at the collection station of the hospital’s Xiangfang branch after showing their confirmed appointment message.
The entire procedure for blood specimens, nucleic acid and antibody specimen collections takes only 15 minutes.
Those undergoing the procedure can find their electronic report via the hospital’s online page within 24 hours.
Officials said that the whole process minimizes personnel contact, playing an important role in avoiding cross infection.
