Widespread testing can decrease the death rate only when those who test positive are quarantined. So widespread testing plus quarantine decreases the death rate by lowering R.

However, widespread testing with or without quarantine does lower the Case Fatality Rate or CFR by finding a higher proportion of the infectees, thus increasing the number of confirmed cases.
