For all those needing a Covid-19 test, Hospital Particular (HPM), Funchal is offering a drive through service.
PCR Test for COVID 19
This is the test of choice for the diagnosis of COVID 19, as it directly investigates the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (coronavirus) in the airways.

The method used detects the presence of the viral RNA and is called PCR (polymerase chain reaction). It is highly sensitive and specific as it simultaneously identifies several genes of the virus.
