Are we dealing essentially with a terrible accident, negligence or even something more sinister?The Australian journalist Sharri Markson’s con...

What is the frequency of COVID testing to prevent Delta variant transmission?

In a new study published on the medRxiv* preprint server, scientists have used available data on the Delta variant’s viral load to infer its infectiousness and, subsequently, estimate the reduction in its transmission brought about by surveillance testing. The testing, done at different frequencies, was performed on a susceptible population. The cases of both the original Wuhan strain and the Delta variant were considered.
