Dear Department of Health,

Can you please advise whether pool testing is used when testing samples in the RT-PCR test for Covid 19 now or at anytime over the last 18 months in Hong Kong. Pool testing is when a number of samples are 'pooled together' and any positive result is applied to all samples.

Yours faithfully,

Allyson van de Pol
