Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email

A media briefing with experts from the Infectious Diseases Society of America to discuss COVID-19 developments and answer questions.

With public health and medical experts calling for an immediate increase in the nation’s testing capacity, without adding to already troubling delays in the time it takes to obtain results, some have suggested that pooled testing could be especially useful.

Topical Agenda for July 31 Briefing:

  • What is pooled testing?
  • When, where and how can pooling help improve COVID-19 testing capacity
  • What are the limitations and risks?
  • Questions from media
