A serosurvey conducted across six slums in Mumbai's Cuffe Parade area has shown that 75 per cent of the residents tested positive for Covid antibodies, a sign of a past infection, which means either there is possibly a stigma associated with being diagnosed with Covid or people are scared of the consequences of being diagnosed with Covid, fearing social isolation or repercussions from the authorities.
Out of the total 806 participants, 605 tested positive for Covid antibodies.
