This interactive chart maps government policies on testing for COVID-19. Note that this relates to PCR testing for the virus only; it does not include non-PCR, antibody testing.
Countries are grouped into four categories:
- No testing policy
- Testing only for those who both (a) have symptoms AND (b) meet specific criteria (e.g. key workers, admitted to hospital, came into contact with a known case, returned from overseas)
- Testing of anyone showing COVID-19 symptoms
- Open public testing (e.g “drive through” testing available to asymptomatic people)
This interactive chart maps government policies on contract tracing for COVID-19.
