What is covid-19 testing?

Covid-19 testing has become a key tool for countries around the world to develop containment and mitigation strategies to control the spread of SARS-CoV-2, a previously unknown coronavirus that emerged in Wuhan, China in December 2019.

The outbreak was characterised as a pandemic by the World Health Organization in March 2020. Now, more countries are shifting their covid-19 approach from pandemic to endemic.

The subsequent changes in government policy and the requirements for covid-19 surveillance and screening programmes will impact both test volume and the types of test technologies that will be frequently used.
