About 67.6% of Indians have developed antibodies against SARS-COV-2. This means that more than half of the Indians have been able to fight Corona. This has been revealed by the fourth serosurvey of the government. In view of the possible third wave of Corona, the Ministry of Health has issued a guideline regarding travel. It states that there is a need to avoid traveling without full vaccination.

The ministry has said these 7 things…

  2. No statement on district-wise situation: The government said that the situation may be different at the local or district level. In the sero-survey, the overall situation of the country has been looked at.
  3. State-Level Action Required: States should continue with local sero-surveys to find out what percentage of the population is protected against COVID.
  4. Possible arrival of third wave: The ministry said that waves of infection may come in future. Actually, in some states, immunity against corona has been found at a high level, while in some places it is very low.
