This initiative aims to prevent the spread of the virus as Hong Kong citizens battle the pandemic together and is in line with the company’s “We DO” spirit.

Exclusive 20% off discount for Pulse users to make online purchase of WHO-recommended RT-PCR test kits

From today, all Pulse users residing in Hong Kong can purchase a Project Screen At-home COVID-19 Test for HK$788, a 20% discount from the original price of HK$985, via the app. All they need to do is log onto their Pulse app, go to the “What’s Hot” page in the “Health” section and then click the “20% off at-home COVID-19 test” button. The tests are available on a first-come-first serve basis.

Under the campaign jointly announced by Prudential and Prenetics last month, healthcare workers and their family members in Hong Kong can get an at-home COVID-19 test at a 30% discount by registering via https://projectscreen.co/.

Project Screen At-home COVID-19 Tests were well received by healthcare workers and employers in the first round, enhancing preventive measures to protect the health of employees and the public

As a trusted insurance partner and market leader in health and protection, Prudential is committed to safeguarding the health of Hong Kong residents. The company has introduced an array of extra benefits and measures in the past four months, aimed at providing customers with the most timely and comprehensive protection to combat the COVID-19 outbreak.

“COVID-19 testing is a crucial element in controlling the pandemic worldwide. While it helps detect infections early so that treatment can be done as soon as possible, it also helps to stop the spread of virus with the necessary quarantine in place. Prudential is committed to actively protecting the health of customers across the three key phases of their health journey – ‘Prevention’‘Postponement’ and ‘Protection’. Providing the public with easy access to COVID-19 tests is a preventive measure in health protection. When the one is unfortunately detected with the potential risk of COVID-19 infection at an early stage, necessary actions can be taken to search for the best solution to postpone the deterioration of the disease and receive better treatment. We deeply believe in community’s collaborative efforts to battle the pandemic, therefore Prudential is offering exclusive discount price for our Pulse users who can purchase this test solution online.” said Priscilla Ng, Chief Customer and Marketing Officer of Prudential.

 In the first month since the launch of Project Screen, around 15% of the first batch of customers are healthcare workers who have benefited from Prudential’s subsidies provided to them and their family members. Around 70% of respondents are employers, indicating the concerns that Hong Kong employers have for the health of their employees.
