Effects of COVID-19 Prevention Measures on Other Common Infections, Taiwan.
Emerg Infect Dis. 2020 Oct; 26(10):2509-2511.EI

Abstract

To determine whether policies to limit transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) hinder spread of other infectious diseases, we analyzed the National Health Insurance database in Taiwan. Rates of other infections were significantly lower after SARS-CoV-2 prevention measures were announced. This finding can be applied to cost-effectiveness of SARS-CoV-2 prevention.
