Delhi nears herd immunity


New Delhi, February 2

The national Capital could well be moving towards herd immunity against Covid-19 with the largest sero prevalence survey by the Delhi Government revealing viral antibodies in 56.13 per cent of the respondents.

Announcing the findings of the fifth survey, state Health Minister Satyendra Jain said on Tuesday, “Delhi is heading towards herd immunity, but only experts will be able to give a clear picture.”

NITI Aayog Member VK Paul has repeatedly said the presence of antibodies in 60 per cent people could qualify as herd immunity, but the debate continues and more studies are needed to draw definitive conclusions.

Jain said this was the largest survey. — TNS
