Dr. A Velumani, the MD of Thyrocare Labs, said that the data from serological tests, conducted by his organization on about 2.7 lakh people, shows that 26% of Indians have already contracted the novel coronavirus disease. They have neutralizing antibodies in their blood, which is the immune response a body automatically generates to fight off the deadly virus.
In fact, if the current trend of infections-recoveries continues, 40% of India's population will have antibodies against coronavirus.
