One of India’s foremost virologists, Shahid Jameel, says if the ICMR serological survey results, made public on June 11, are correct, then it follows that India has 140-150 million coronavirus infected people today. Dr Jameel says this follows from the findings that at the end of April 0.73% of the population, which is 10 million people, had the virus.
Seventy five days later, given India’s doubling rate of 20 days, the number of people infected today would be 140-150 million.
