If we want to effectively compete pandemia we need a globally agreed and implemented approach

... test, test, test!

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

Its the only logic way to kill this virus, and the ones yet to come. Please get in conctact with Prof Hans Lehrach who needs funding to setup the pipline for mass testing at a cost of a dollar or less per test.

I support this petition in order to increase the number of people able to benefit from optimal health care and economic recovery

Current Sars-Cov-2 testing strategies are insufficient due to the high rate of false negative results (up to 30%). Moreover, cross contamination of clinical samples is a major problem in emerging and developing countries. Therefore, future strategies should focus on cost-effective, high-sensitiv, and easy-to-handle diagnostic procedures. Otherwise the global fight will be lost.

It's very important socially and economically to end this pandemic as fast as possible and to learn from it for the future. Regular testing and isolation is not only strategy that is guarateed to work, it is also the cheapest.

DANKE für Ihre intelligente Initiative.
Hoffen wir, die Politik lässt sich davon überzeugen.

because testing is the only promising strategy against COVID-19.

Dirk MertensGermany2020-07-26 11:51:35

Regelmäßige, flächendeckende Tests mit der Unterbrechung der Infektionsketten und der Islolierung der Risikogruppen wären von Beginn an die bessere Methode als der Lock Down gewesen. Wir werden uns daran gewöhnen müssen, mit dem Virus zu leben und nur regelmäßige Testungen der Bevölkerung lassen ein normaleres Leben zu.

Dr. Sylke LützenkirchenGermany2020-07-26 09:08:32

Nur flächendeckende, zeitgleiche Testungen können eine nachhaltige Lösung sein.

Mass testing is the only rational strategy until a vaccine is widely available. New methods can bring test costs down significantly. Regulatory framework needs to be adjusted in many countries to legally facilitate population wide monitoring.

Non-invasive measures against Covid 19, like mass testing and trustworthy contact tracing, seem to be the only way to circumvent disaster, be it economical or heatlthwise.
Furthermore, mass testing could be an economic stimulus in lab infrastructure and related supply chains that is worthwhile the investment later on, which is in contrast to money sunk due to repeated lockdowns.

theories are nice but practical results allow us to achieve higher fit between reality and scientific models

Patrick HortonUnited Kingdom2020-07-09 19:42:13

We will be living with the virus much longer than people imagine. Testing should be embedded in daily life for the coming years
