What is it about?
To avoid shut down of cancer screening institutions is crucial. We found the level of acceptable lower limit of screening rates for colorectal cancer. The results could be used as evidence for continuity of cancer screening under pandemic situation.

Why is it important?
Our findings suggest evidence based acceptable screening rates for colorectal cancer. These 'true' acceptable rate could be used as evidence for continuity of cancer screening under pandemic situation. Additionally, for those regions where screening rates are not sufficiently high, the results could serve as immediate targets. Furthermore, the minimum requirement for stool test rate could be a benchmark for shifting to fecal immunochemical test (FIT) focused operation.
