Aggressive testing helps Italian town cut new coronavirus cases to zero

By testing all residents for coronavirus, a town in Italy was able to isolate both the symptomatic and asymptomatic cases which resulted in the containment of the virus. The initial round of testing indicated that three percent of the population tested positive and those residents were quarantined, as were any people who they had been in contact with. The second round of testing showed that the infected number had declined to less than half a percent.
