Meanwhile, a sero-surveillance study done in Mumbai has revealed that 57 per cent of slum population and 16 per cent of non-slum residents in three civic wards had developed antibodies, indicating many people would already be affected by COVID-19 than the official tally suggests.
The serological surveillance study used random sampling in the first two weeks of this month. In sero studies, doctors test the blood of a section of the general population to check the presence of anti-bodies to any disease.
