Simulator of economic savings or losses with different COVID-19 testing scenarios


This tool allows you to simulate different COVID-19 testing rates (with different percentages of positive results), so as to estimate the number of avoided hospitalizations (including ICU episodes) and the subsequent economic savings. Please choose one of the predefined scenarios and/or provide current data for your country in the fields of the first two columns. In the fields of the third column, please provide data on the scenario you wish to simulate (regarding the number of COVID-19 tests per million inhabitants, the frequency of positive COVID-19 tests, and the number of days you wish to project your results). Results are presented below
