Foreigners can book virus tests

Foreigners in the city will soon be able to book nucleic acid tests at Shanghai Pudong New Area People’s Hospital via WeChat with their passport numbers as it is developing a reservation system in English.

Currently, its test reservation platform is in Chinese and people without a Chinese mainland ID number cannot register by themselves. They have to book the service by linking their information to a Chinese resident.

“We receive testing demand from foreigners every day,” said Ding Hong of the hospital’s information department. “More often, we have to book for them manually. The new system can save us a lot of time.”

According to the hospital, the system, the first of its kind under development in the Pudong New Area, is expected to be introduced to the public in about two weeks.
