Nearly 1 in 15 individuals above 10 yrs had Covid-19: sero survey

Nov 26, 2020 15:22 IST

The results of the second sero survey conducted by ICMR shows that 1 in 15 people over the age of ten years and above has had Covid-19 by August, in the national capital. The report added that a lower infection to case ratio was in August compared to May because of a substantial increase in testing numbers across the country. The report says adult sero-prevalence of Covid-19 increased 10 times between May & Aug. The survey estimated a cumulative 74·3 million infections in the country, with 26 to 32 infections for every reported Covid-19 case by August 2020.
