Dis-Chem's says the tests will cost R850 each and it may take 24 to 48 hours to get your results back.

Dis-Chem's national clinic manager Lizeth Kruger says

It is actually a very easy process, contact is minimum, the risk is minimum for everybody. It is convenient, we abide by the rules of the lockdown and everything and we make it possible to hopefully increase the testings.
