Testing people for COVID-19 allows medical experts to gain accurate numbers about the spread of the disease and to learn which individuals are most likely to be affected. Following this information, measures can be put into place to combat the rise of infections.

Therefore, it’s crucial that widespread testing takes place so that the appropriate vaccine can be administered when necessary to protect as many people as possible.
