PUNE: Nearly 51 to 60% of citizens’ samples that were sent from six state districts, for the fourth national serosurvey, had Covid-19 antibodies in them, data has revealed.

The samples of citizens and healthcare workers – from Beed, Parbhani, Nanded, Ahmednagar and Jalgaon – were sent to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). Experts from the ICMR said the results indicate that at least half of the population in most of these districts may now have immunity against SARS-CoV-2. The rest remain vulnerable to the virus.
