11 September 2020 Current Events ICMR's Sero-Survey Says India Likely Had 6.4 Million COVID-19 Cases in May

As per the Indian Council of Medical Research's (ICMR) national serosurvey, India may have had 6.4 million coronavirus cases by May. As per the survey published in the Indian Journal of Medical Research, 0.73 percent of adults in the country were exposed to COVID-19. The survey was conducted from May 11 to June 4. So far, nearly 28,000 people across 21 states have been tested. Statistics of the survey have also been released where 'seropositivity' was highest in the age group of 18 to 45 years (43.3 percent); 46 and 60 years (39.5 percent); lowest among those above 60 (17.2 percent). A total of 64,68,388 adult infections were estimated in India by early May. The survey also says that 82-130 infections went undetected for every confirmed case in May. "The findings of our survey indicated that India's overall seroprevalence was low, with less than one percent of the adult population exposed to SARS-CoV-2 by mid-May 2020. The low prevalence observed in most districts indicates that India is in the early phase of the epidemic. The majority of the Indian population is still susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection". Around May and June, the infection had already predated rural areas.
