With regard to the 13th round of citywide NAT programme, the Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Centre announces the following:

Starting from: 22/07/2022 | Time: 08:00

Last update: 23/07/2022 | Time: 15:00

No. of samples collected: 618,331

Negative results: 468,004

Total of mixed samples tested positive: 1

Total of single samples tested positive after re-test: 1

Presently, arrangements have been made to carry out further testing for all persons involved in the positive mixed samples; relevant testing work is still underway.

Taking into account that community transmission of the disease is detected in the territory, the Centre appeals to the public to proactively cooperate with the Government, book and complete the test as soon as possible, so that potential cases can be detected in a timely manner, making it possible to block transmission chains and prevent further spread of the disease in the community.

The booking link of the Citywide NAT Programme is:; relevant test results cannot be used for border-crossing purposes.

For those who get tested at self-paid NAT stations, their test results will be uploaded to the Macao Health Code for immigration purposes, and will be counted in the citywide NAT programme. Prior booking is also strictly required (link: or or ).

Before going to the NAT stations to get tested, the public must first perform a rapid antigen test (RAT) by themselves at home. If tested negative, go to the NAT station for sampling as scheduled. Upon entry into the NAT station, present a health code containing a RAT negative result or a photo showing a RAT negative result; otherwise, such entry would be denied.

If the RAT result is positive, regardless of whether having fever, respiratory symptoms or other discomfort, the concerned individual should call an ambulance (Tel: 119, 120 or 28572222) and report the result through the Macao Health Code. The declarant and the co-living individuals must stay home and wait patiently for being transferred to the quarantine site by the designated ambulance.

There is no exemption period for the 13th round of citywide NAT programme. Each participating resident will be given a pack of 10 KN95 masks and 5 rapid antigen tests; re-collection would not be available, whereas anyone who remains untested after 19:00 on 23 July will be assigned a yellow health code. According to relevant regulations, yellow code holders may not be allowed to enter public places, take public transport or leave the city. They will be taken by the police to a designated venue to undergo sampling, and will not be allowed to leave the venue until their test returns as negative. People who refuse to take the test will be subject to medical observation at designated venue for 14 days.
