Three days after the Davis administration rolled out free COVID-19 testing on New Providence, hundreds of people lined up outside the two testing sites this morning to find out their COVID status.

 



Some people left feeling frustrated, while others applauded the government initiative.

There were long lines, and sometimes long waits, at newly opened rapid antigen testing centers on New Providence today, as the government expanded access to free Covid testing.

At Melia, some people left frustrated after waiting a long time to get tested.

With the country, recording 3,000 more cases in one week and over 800 cases in one day, Prime Minister Philip Davis announced on Sunday that the government will make one thousand free tests available each day.

This morning, the line of cars stretched far beyond this drive-thru testing center on West Bay Street. Residents had mixed views on the process.

Free testing was a promise made by the Progressive Liberal Party on the campaign trail.

Over at Kendal G.L Isaacs gym, people walked in to get tested for Covid-19 and also received free KN-95 masks.
