Re: Medical Science for Treatment of Covid-19

Why massive research on efficient and rapid testing resulting in millions of tests per day in US is not a reality is insanely tilting and massively devastating for the legacy of our times.

Spend God damn it 20 bil $ just for the hell of it to develop the best tests in the planet and this will then save 1 tril in economic losses forward from the bs we have going.

Even pooled testing can stop this disaster. Its math is super interesting by the way and deserves a thread of its own.

https://www.cambridge.org/core/servi...rveillance.pdf

Hogan et al. tested 2888 individual nasopharyngeal or bronchoalveolar lavage samples grouped in pools of 9 to 10. Two positive samples were identified for a positivity rate of 0.07% and only 1 false positive reading was observed.[4]
In Germany, pooled testing of 1191 samples in poolsizes between 4 to 30 samples resulted in only 267 tests required to detect 23 positive individuals (positive rate of 1.93%) with all positive samples easily identified.[6] In Germany, two pooling techniques were compared, a “routine high throughput” approach where random samples are pooled together for testing or a “door to door” approach where groups of similar people(i.e families, neighbours, etc) are pooled together for testing. While both approaches save substantial resources, the “door to door” approach was found to carry more benefit, reducing tests by 56% to 93% whereas the “routine high throughput”results in 24% to 86% less tests. In low to moderate infection levels, even a pool size of 5 would reduce the number of tests needed by 5-fold(78%). In countries with infection levels over 20%, a pool size of 10 would still result in a considerable reduction in the number of tests required (up to 50%).[1]

Medical Science for Treatment of Covid-19

Interesting ... Thanks, PTB.

why we're not pooling tests is completely beyond me.
