“As we start to learn from our various responses to covid-19, it is critical that we explore beyond how many tests were completed and which businesses were closed, and consider what efforts were made to address the specific needs of communities on the margins. Guidance documents dating back decades suggested the need for testing to be linked to interventions and the importance of an equity lens given socioeconomic inequities and structural racism. Ultimately, an enduring lesson of covid-19 will be that our strategies didn’t leverage core surveillance principles, and as a result they—either by design or by accident—better protected wealthier communities. And in that, they have been a resounding success.”

Covid-19 testing programs: who benefits?


It has been obvious to almost everyone that this impacts people who live in houses of multiple occupation, very hard.
It impacts, those who can not afford to lose daily income, possibly meaning they steer clear of testing.
It impacts people (illegal or otherwise) who want nothing to do with officialdom.
It impacts those of very low intelligence.
It impacts those nearing the end of their lives.

But Clark’s question is what are the purposes of covid testing?

I think the main purpose was for the government/NHS to make strategic decisions.
