Need to get tested for COVID-19 but thinking twice because of how expensive it can get?
Well, if you want to get tested but you do not want to fork out a bomb, this clinic in Cheras is where you need to head to.
Doing their part
The Laurent Bleu Medical Clinic, which is located at the CMC Centre in Taman Connaught, is offering the COVID-19 antigen rapid tests for just RM60.
According to Malay Mail
, the affordable testing is part of the clinic’s corporate social responsibility effort.
Natasha Ng, the clinic's chief executive officer, told the news portal that they want to help flatten the curve by providing cheap COVID-19 testing for those who can't afford it.
“Ideally, our effort is to make this screening accessible to all and essentially flatten the curve,” Ng was quoted as saying in the report.
Most private healthcare clinics usually charge between RM120 to RM180 for the antigen rapid tests.
Ng added that as the Social Security Organisation (Sosco) subsidises RM60 for each test, so employers who choose the clinic to conduct the test can claim 100 per cent of the cost.
If you're thinking of getting tested, you can head over to Laurent Bleu Medical Clinic between 9am and 9pm every day.
You can get in touch with the clinic by dropping a WhatsApp message to 010-528 6368 or by emailing email@example.com.
We'll see you there, guys!
