On May 19, María Lahuerta, PhD, MPH, ICAP’s deputy director of strategic information, spoke to Spanish outlet Antena 3 about contact tracing to control the spread of COVID-19.
The epidemiologist, asked about the massive tests to control the coronavirus, is blunt: “The tests are important, but almost more important is, when we have a person diagnosed, locate their contacts so that they can be tested and isolate them . I think it is something that we do not have the capacity to do right now and that we have to reinforce, because it will be key to avoiding new outbreaks.”
