Testing & Diagnosis
Test sensitivity is secondary to frequency and turnaround time for COVID-19 screening
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a public health crisis. Because SARS-CoV-2 can spread from individuals with pre-symptomatic, symptomatic, and asymptomatic infections, the re-opening of societies...

Rapidity and frequency of #COVID19 testing override the concerns about sensitivity. Very strong case @ScienceAdvances today by @DanLarremore @michaelmina_lab Roy Parker and colleagues… (We urgently need mass scale rapid home testing rolled out)

(1) Diese Modellierungsstudie der Uni of Colorado/Harvard zeigt noch einmal klar, worauf es bei Nutzung von Schnelltests ankommt. Regelmässiges Testen mit sofortigen Ergebnis sind VIEL entscheidender als Qualität des Tests. Eine Faustformel wäre:…
