Could antigen testing help us get ahead of Covid-19?

It was a scene that made lovers of live music everywhere yearn all the more for pre-Covid days. But it was also perhaps a glimpse of days to come: Some 5,000 people dancing and clapping along at an outdoor concert in Barcelona the weekend before last.

It could almost have been a scene from before the pandemic – it was only the masks that gave it away. The concert was made possible by the use of rapid antigen tests.

Every person attending was screened on their way in, with the price of the test factored into the ticket. It feels like we've been hearing a lot about antigen testing in this country, but seeing very little.
