Can COVID-19 testing be made more sustainable during prolonged uncertainty?

In September 2021, Delta persists as the most prevalent variant worldwide due to its high infectivity, causing surges in COVID-19 cases to the point where some areas are reopening mass testing centres. As long as COVID-19 continues to defy expectations and predictions, testing will play a key role in managing the virus - whether it’s for re-introducing activities that provide a sense of normalcy or for the surveillance of emerging variants. With some local governments incorporating mandatory testing requirements into their re-opening strategies, there is growing concern about the availability and supply-chain resilience in order to access testing reagents and supplies to support another spike in demand.
