An extensive French study has surveyed nations' responses to COVID-19 and concludes those taking an aggressive "Zero COVID" approach fared better than others by both health and economic measures.

The study rests its analysis in part on the experience of Canada, where six large provinces face steeply rising infection rates tied to evolved variants of the virus while provinces and territories that hewed closer to the Zero COVID approach do not.

Zero COVID, also called Go for Zero or elimination, employs a range of tactics designed to drive infection rates to negligible. Such tactics include one hard serious lockdown followed by strategic testing, active surveillance and tight border controls.
