Massachusetts expands the clinical impact, cost, and cost-effectiveness of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 testing Clinical infectious diseases. Conclusion: “Compared to testing only those with symptoms that require hospitalization, testing for people with any consistent symptoms of COVID-19 will save costs. Expanding PCR testing to asymptomatic people will reduce infections, deaths, and hospitalizations. Despite sensitivity Moderate, but in all epidemic settings, low-cost, repeated screening of the entire population may be cost-effective.” Editorial is here.
To be honest, I am a little frustrated with the way we are dealing with the long-term COVID. The case definition is terrible, our diagnostic test is zero, and a paper like this may be used to prove that it is not even a real problem. The fact is that long-term COVID definitely exists; I know many patients and friends who are not dying from the new coronary pneumonia, but they have long-term, lingering symptoms of weakness. But we don’t know how common it is. We need to realize that vague symptoms can lead to vague diagnosis-if there is no clearer standard, we may label a group of people as “long-term COVID”, which is not what they have at all. This is not good for everyone, because it makes it more difficult to make progress on this disease…whatever it is.
