Nearly 90 percent of people in Mumbai are estimated to have Covid-19 antibodies, according to the civic body survey released on Friday.
The fifth blood serum survey to test for the presence of antibodies, known as the sero survey conducted between August and early September, included 8,674 adults, of whom nearly 65 percent of the subjects were vaccinated.
The survey also revealed that more women had antibodies compared to their male counterparts at 88.29 percent compared to 85.07 percent. Seroprevalence was significantly higher in people who had received the first or both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine compared to their unvaccinated counterparts.
