Examining Two-stage Group Testing


The two-stage group testing method is examined and its application in COVID-19 is discussed. The expected false positive rate and false negative rate are calculated for given values of sensitivity, specicity, prevalence and group-testing parameters. To reduced false negative rate, we suggest to test the pooled sample multiple times at the rst stage.
