Why are we not testing everyone ? I am aware that you can get false positives and false negatives but if it is good enough for all suspected Cases that are admitted to hospitals why not test everyone . As we know a lot of the population are not showing any signs or unaware through the mildest symptoms that they actually have it .This then makes these people carriers with potential to pass it on . To relax lockdown we need to make a concerted effort to test everyone thus reducing the percentage of people passing it on Drive through testing areas are vastly under used Yes it may mean a delay in the results due to increased demand but as I see it this would be best way forward to reduce second spike .

Why the contribution is important

To reduce potential spread and second spike in no positive cases and deaths
