“Lockdowns, and Testing are two sides of the same coin. If you want to stop lockdown, then step up Testing. It is cheaper to Test millions of people than to lock down your economy. Africa is losing $70bn per month through lockdowns, and it will bankrupt us completely. The answer is simple: Mass Testing must replace blanket lockdowns. This is maths not politics,’said Strive.
The leader of a small country in the Caribbean with about 100,000 people, wanted to make sure that his country did not get coronavirus. Here is what he did: He closed the borders temporarily. Then he tested every single citizen on the Island to find those who carried the virus [some people carry it without even knowing they have it]. After finding those who had it, he Isolated them for 3 weeks, until they Tested negative again.
He asked each person to list people they had been in contact with, and also Tested them. This process of Testing, Tracing, and Isolating completely eliminated the disease after one month.
Now they have opened their borders, and they Test everyone who arrives, and they keep them Isolated for 14 days before they can mingle.
What about the big country?
The principles still apply. Scientific techniques show us that the more Testing, Tracing, and Isolating—a country can do, the slower the infection rate within a country!
This is logical thinking!
So, we must Test, Trace and Isolate constantly. I have argued to many people this logic,’he added.
