WHO tracking seroepidemiological studies

Swaminatan said: "WHO is tracking these seroepidemiological studies. According to the latest statistics, there are about 500 items. If you put them all together, you will find that only nearly 10% of the world's population has antibodies to the new coronavirus. ."

 

Swaminathan of WHO pointed out: 

“Of course there are places where 50% to 60% of the population has been infected by the virus and have antibodies, such as densely populated urban areas. But it cannot be considered that the whole city, province, state or country has achieved this. Collective immunization.” 

She explained that residents of such settlements who do not have antibodies are still at risk of infection when they go out.

Swaminatan emphasized that vaccination is the only way to achieve collective immunization on a global scale.
