Michigan Ross Colonel William G. and Ann C. Svetlich professor of operations research and management Ravi Anupindi discusses COVID-19 testing and what Michigan, and other states, need to do in order for life to return to a “new” normal. Anupindi notes that Michigan needs to begin “suppression-level testing,” like Harvard researchers recommend, in which the state or community finds and isolates new cases before an outbreak occurs. In order to achieve this, Michigan needs to increase its testing by 2.4 times the current level. He further offers other considerations to react better and more efficiently to the coronavirus pandemic, such as paying labs or expanding to include various diagnostic tests.
