Grab announced today (February 12) that it will test a new 24-hour on-demand service for healthcare professionals who have worked hard on the front line of the coronavirus outbreak.
GrabCare is a driver service within the Grab app that allows you to travel seamlessly between hospitals.
According to Grab, this should help reduce the burden on health professionals who may have difficulty getting trips due to fear of the coronavirus.
This service increases the likelihood that you will secure a trip before and after your shift.

The GrabCare pilot will be rolled out gradually to healthcare professionals at the National Center for Infectious Diseases (NCID) and Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) starting Friday (February 14).
This service will then be expanded to include trips from home to hospitals and expanded to more participating hospitals.
So far, around 2,000 Grab Driver partners have registered for this service.
"The tireless work and commitment of our healthcare workers to treat and care for patients has inspired us and many of our driver partners to do more," said Yee Wee Tang, Country Head of Grab Singapore.
"GrabCare is our little contribution to bringing the community together to support our countrymen in times of need and to ensure that healthcare workers drive stress-free and hassle-free every day."
