The second wave of Covid-19 is currently diminishing, and the centre is now getting prepared for the next wave. Amid rising concerns over the third wave, the Centre on Tuesday announced the findings of the fourth seroprevalence study conducted by ICMR.

According to the survey, nearly one-third of the country’s population, which means nearly 40 Crore people, is still vulnerable to Coronavirus infection.

The survey revealed that 67.6% of India’s population above 6 years was found to have Covid-19 antibodies. This was the first time that children above six years were included in the seroprevalence study.

The ICMR survey covered 28,975 general population and 7,252 healthcare workers. It was conducted in the 70 districts across 21 states where the previous three rounds had been carried out.

Seropositivity as per age groups:

– 6-9 years: 57.2%

-10-17 years: 61.6%

-18-44 years: 66.7%

-45-60 years: 77.6%

The Indian Council of Medical Research conducted the latest survey in June-July.
