Although it could increase the difficulty of identifying the cases, the burden of health institutions may be reduced and save more medical resources especially in developing countries.” — Tianming Zhao et al (Correspondence The importance of social distancing policy)

Iatrogenic Effects of Testing Introverts

additional testing over this range would reduce voluntary social distancing so much that it would have no benefit in terms of containing the infection. It increases the infection probability of low-value agents and does not change the infection probability of high-value agents.

…uniform testing policies, where tests are allocated without reference to the type of agents, are worse than targeted testing policies.”
