COVID-19 impact on the global IHC market
Globally, the COVID-19 outbreak has impacted every aspect of the diagnostic industry, including IHC
testing. In the last few months, the number of patient visits to hospitals has reduced significantly,
despite emergency OPD and laboratory services being available in hospitals.
After commencing cancer surgeries or any other surgeries, surgeons run an IHC test/assay to decide
the best treatment for patients. However, due to lockdowns in Q1 & Q2 2020 in many countries, the
number of elective surgeries and diagnostic tests has significantly reduced. As a result, the number
of IHC tests has reduced. This has significantly reduced the sales of IHC products in Q1 2020 and, to
some extent, in Q2 2020.
Following are some of the government initiatives to delay screening or diagnostic tests for cancer:
In March 2020, the Welsh government and the Scottish government suspended screening
programs for breast, cervical, and bowel cancer.
In the US, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services classified screening as a low-priority
service and suggested healthcare organizations to consider postponing screenings.
