Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. A rapid response is first posted online. If you need the URL (web address) of an individual response, simply click on the response headline and copy the URL from the browser window. A proportion of responses will, after editing, be published online and in the print journal as letters, which are indexed in PubMed. Rapid responses are not indexed in PubMed and they are not journal articles. The BMJ reserves the right to remove responses which are being wilfully misrepresented as published articles.
What will be the cost of Universal Screening for SARS-CoV-2? After finding Asymptomatic People having the rest Positive will it be possible to Quarantine all of them? Even if they are Quarantined, how long should they be Quarantined? Should they be tested repeatedly? And if to be tested repeatedly, then at what Time Intervals? No one really knows the clear answers.
Will it not be sufficient to test the People having Symptoms?
