Ethics of Rushing COVID19 Risk Prediction Models

Great discussions!
Reading comments on this site is like reading the take-home-message of an academic book, very useful and distilled information.

My two cents:

  1. Laboratory blood tests are a treasure trove, I agree, I hope somewhere some expert modeller is able to sit together with a biologist/biochemist to develop a good prediction model from those data, BUT
  2. at this point of the pandemic I believe we rather need a model for testing/sampling campaigns, while relying on precision of the available diagnostic tests which seem to be quite good already (provided RT-PCR is widely accessible)
