JD Health Provides Door-to-Door Nucleic Acid Test Service, etc
by Hui Zhang
In cooperation with third-party testing institutions, JD Health announced plans to upgrade nucleic acid testing services on Dec. 30, with results issued in as fast as 4 hours. Also available will be door-to-door testing services, group nucleic acid testing services and food nucleic acid testing services.
The service upgrade follows recent sporadic COVID-19 cases resurfacing in Beijing as well as several provinces in China. Among them, the door-to-door sample collection service will not only enable consumers to complete the test without leaving home, but also minimize the risk of potential cross-infection. In addition, food nucleic acid testing services include testing food, agricultural products, catering utensils and more, especially for cold-chain food and restaurant tableware.
So far, consumers can book nucleic acid testing services through JD’s app in 42 cities across China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing and Chengdu. Consumers can simply type in the keywords “核酸检测” (nucleic acid test) to enter into the specific page to place an order. Consumers can book the testing time online and bring their ID cards to offline institutions to receive the service and the results can be issued in as fast as 4 hours. Both individuals and groups can either choose to receive testing services at offline institutions, or receive door-to-door service.
JD Health announced the launch of a dynamic information platform on Dec. 28 to release vaccine-related news from all over the country, including the latest news on the development and availability of the COVID-19 vaccine. The platform will also offer convenient services such as vaccine Q&A, vaccine-related knowledge, and registration.
