According to the New Scientist, in theory, regular mass testing could help eradicate the coronavirus in just weeks. As most cases of the Coronavirus go undetected due to individuals being asymptomatic and not even realising they are infected, if a larger proportion of the people who are carrying the virus can be identified and isolated, there will be an increased reduction in the spread of the virus.
The bmj have further supported this by stating that large scale asymptomatic testing can help identify far more cases and break the chain of transmission of the virus.
The New Scientist go on to explain that the reduction in the spread of Covid-19 will depend on if enough people are tested and if a sufficient infrastructure can be set up in order to test large numbers of people and return their results quickly enough.
