ABSTRACT

Economic Benefits of COVID-19 Screening Tests with a Vaccine Rollout   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Abstract: "This note estimates the costs and benefits of a nationwide COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] screening testing program in the presence of an imminently arriving vaccine. Even for an optimistic vaccine rollout scenario, a well-designed federally-funded screening testing program, coupled with self-isolation of those who test positive, pays for itself in terms of increased fiscal revenues and is projected to save 10,000 or more lives. The sooner the testing program is put in place, the greater are its net economic benefits."
