COVID-19 ECHO Session #6: Serology Tests and Their Role in the Pandemic Response

May 14, 2020

On 24 April 2020, Professor Rosanna Peeling and colleagues from the International Diagnostics Centre at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine pulled together evidence for and against the original set of recommendations for use of serologic tests. Prof Peeling was joined by Dr Yenew Kebede from Africa CDC and Dr Amadou Sall from Institut Pasteur de Dakar to discuss the potential use of serological tests to relieve the African supply chain issues associated with sole reliance on molecular testing, as well as the Africa CDC partnership to accelerate COVID-19 testing-PACT, which projects testing of 10 million people across Africa over the next six months.
