As far as test capacity goes, it is tests per case that matters more


Many countries with low infection rates have very high tests per case but relatively low tests per capita. They are the real winners. You can think about it as a quadrant chart:

high tests | high tests
low cases | high cases
-------------------------------
low tests | low tests
low cases | high cases

Ideally you are in that upper left of high tests/low cases. The US is instead in the upper right, while a country like Brazil is in the lower right.
