TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — In response to the sudden surge in COVID-19 cases across the country, a number of cities and counties have set up free testing stations to streamline the process of screening for the virus.

However, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) stressed that only individuals who have come into contact with confirmed cases or are experiencing suspected symptoms of the coronavirus should undergo testing. In order to avoid wasting resources, the CECC advises those who have not come in contact with COVID cases and do not have a high fever or noticeable symptoms not to get tested.

Many of the testing stations implement PCR tests, which take about one to two days to obtain results. In the case of rapid-screening stations, antigen tests are provided, which get results within 10 to 15 minutes — but be advised that these are not as accurate as PCR tests.

The following is a list compiled by CNA of cities and counties where free COVID-19 testing is available:

  • Taipei City Hospital Zhongxing Branch
  • Taipei City Hospital Heping Branch
  • West Garden Hospital
  • Bopiliao Historic Block
