Frequent and rapid testing can eliminate COVID-19 spread within weeks: study

A new study published by the University of Colorado Boulder and Harvard University researchers claimed that frequent and rapid testing could eliminate Covid-19 spread within weeks.

Researchers said that frequency of testing is far more important than sensitivity in curbing the coronavirus spread.

The study got published in the journal Science Advances.

The lead author Daniel Larremore, an assistant professor of computer science at CU Boulder said, it would be better to have a less sensitive test with results today than a more sensitive one with results tomorrow.

Larremore added that rather than telling everyone to stay at home, only the contagious people may be issued stay-at-home orders so everyone else can go about their lives.
