COVID-19 Testing Is Here to Stay: The Intersection Between Vaccination and Testing
Mara Aspinall explores the challenges from Delta, vaccination, and COVID-19 testing
President Biden reset the nation’s strategy with a renewed and stronger focus on vaccination and testing with his new COVID-19 action plan. Given the continued challenge from Delta, even among the fully vaccinated, and the continued reality that maybe 40% of those who are infectious have no symptoms - testing is our best hope for slowing the spread. Hopefully, the right incentives and infrastructure will be quickly put in place to ensure that tests become easily and readily available to all. Join us to explore this opportunity and its challenges.

RADx: Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics
