Health Technology Wales publishes evidence review of COVID-19 diagnostics

Health Technology Wales (HTW) has undertaken a first major review of evidence about the effectiveness of tests to detect the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus or antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 to inform COVID-19 diagnosis.

This review sets the context for decision makers in Welsh Government, health and social care. It aims to assist their response to the COVID-19 pandemic and facilitate evidence-informed decisions.

HTW has published a report based on the published evidence available to date. Click here to read the report in full.

The report will be updated regularly with HTW undertaking ongoing literature surveillance. This will ensure decision makers are aware of the best available evidence to inform the ongoing response to COVID-19.
