UEM Edgenta Offers MoH-Approved COVID-19 Screening Convenience for Businesses and Individuals
Full Release: Kuala Lumpur, 18 November 2020 – UEM Edgenta Berhad’s (“UEM Edgenta” or “Company”) subsidiary in its Healthcare Support division, Edgenta UEMS Sdn. Bhd. (“Edgenta UEMS”) is now offering the convenience for businesses and individuals to conduct drive-through and on-site COVID-19 screening, approved by the Ministry of Health Malaysia (“MoH”).

The screening options offer a reliable and hassle-free solution, as customers can opt for a drive-through service in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, or via on-site arrangements. Operating hours for drive-through service are between 9.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m., Monday to Saturday. Customers can arrange for on-site visits based on the team’s availability.

“As we progress in this new normal, COVID-19 screenings will be an important feature in our coexistence with the virus. Providing the market with accessible and hassle-free options will enable businesses and spur economic activities, providing the assurance for all stakeholders to operate safely in the new ecosystem. Edgenta UEMS provides this convenience for businesses to leverage upon our expertise in healthcare support services,” said Syahrunizam Samsudin, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of UEM Edgenta.

Businesses and individuals may select from either two types of screening procedures - Rapid Test Kit (“RTK”), which is done on blood samples to detect the presence of antibodies to the coronavirus and not the virus itself; or Polymerase Chain Reaction (“PCR”) test, the MoH Gold Standard for COVID-19 screening. RTK screening will return results within 45 minutes while PCR test results will take up to 48 hours. Edgenta UEMS is supporting and partnering with local Malaysian clinical laboratories in providing the screening service.

“Evidence shows that COVID-19 testing is a key strategy to combat the virus when complemented with strict safety protocols. We are taking this opportunity to extend our COVID-19 offerings to include testing given the recent escalation in positive cases in Klang Valley, to assist Corporate Malaysia in getting back on track and provide individuals, as well as their families peace of mind assurance. Reach out to us to find out more on our drive-through or on-site screening,” stressed Syahrunizam.
