was once the hardest-hit country outside China, where the virus first emerged, but appears to have brought its outbreak under control thanks to a huge testing and contact-tracing effort.
By midnight on Monday almost 300,000 people had been tested — processes that are free to anyone who has been told to have a test by a doctor, or who tests positive.
Early in the epidemic it introduced drive-through testing for the virus, with medical staff in protective suits swabbing noses through car windows, a practice now adopted internationally.
The SAFETY booths offer similar accessibility for those who do not drive — and children — and by keeping suspected patients outside, avoid the need to disinfect parts of the hospital building.
The facility was created based on biosafety cabinets — also known as isolation glove boxes — where laboratory workers perform operations through arm-length rubber sleeves.
