Andrew Kambugu
01:25:59
Dr. Nsenga, looking at the slide showing the attack rate in the ECSA region, I couldn't help but notice that the countries with higher attack rates are countries with more sound economies. What are your thoughts on the possibility that the attack rates also reflect testing capacity, which may be a proxy of the economic viability of the different countries? Thank you.
More Mungati
01:26:32
Great analysis. Is the positivity rate in Mauritius not due to large number of tests done Would we not want to look at the sensitivity of their screening process in such a scenario?
Andrew Kambugu
01:27:16
I think you have addressed my question in subsequent slides, thanks.
Walter Odoch
01:29:04
The numbers positive in Kenya and Uganda seems to be related to the numbers tested
Ambrose Talisuna
01:29:29
Testing strategy affects attack rates
Walter Odoch
01:29:32
and the numbers tested have been variable over time
Walter Odoch
01:31:25
and the numbers tested have been variable over time but what seems constant is the proportionality between number tested and the positives.
Pamela Chansa
01:35:04

Ngoy Nsenga
01:51:26
@Andres: Yes the attack rate is fucntion of the capciity to test and the testing strategy that a country put in place. Obviouly countries whith high testing capacity and with adequate testing strategy will detect more cases (provided also widespread transmission is occuring).
Ngoy Nsenga
01:53:00
@More: Most countries including Mauritius were using PCR-based testing which is tthe gold standard in term of COVID-19 testing
Ngoy Nsenga
01:55:53
@Walter: Yes what seems to be constant is the proportionality although the positivity rates also has varied over time in some countries
