According to the Lack of Antibodies in Seropositive People: CSIR Survey, immunity in people was not effective enough to stop the wave of infection in the future, especially in areas which were more affected by the infection.
Shantanu Sengupta, one of the main authors of the survey, said that in the last five to six months, the number of antibodies has dropped significantly, due to which people are falling prey to infection. The first wave of infection saw the peak of the corona in the country in September 2020, although after the beginning of October the country saw a decline in new cases of infection. According to the survey, “a lack of significant neutralization activity was observed in sero-positive people after five to six months, although CSIR data showed that anti-NC (nucleocapsid) antibodies would provide long-term protection against viral and infection.” If we apply more stringent provisions, there can be a huge lack of neutralization in the body. In such a situation, we believe that this is what is making the second wave of Corona in March 2021 even bigger. “
In India, the highest number of infections are being reported at the moment and more than 3 lakh cases are being registered every day. According to the survey, according to the study done in many places of the country, 10.14 percent sero-positivity rate meant that in many places in India, by September 2020, people had recovered from Corona and got immunized. Especially among those who are more in touch with each other and use public transport. Due to this, the cases of infection started decreasing in October. However, this immunity was not enough to stop the wave of infection in the future, especially in those areas which were more affected by the infection.
The explosion of Corona has been seen in Maharashtra since March. The study said that people from 24 cities were included in the survey and before this, a little before March 2021, important information related to the effect of Corona virus was found in the entire country. This also confirms that by September 2020 a large number of Indians had recovered from the infection and immunity had developed among the people. It is also said in the study that during the same period lakhs of Indians participated in other sero surveys and immunity was seen in them too. In such a situation, the number of people who had recovered from Corona and are more in touch with other people in the society, use public transport. This survey was done in June and since its inception. The effect of masks and social distancing was beginning to appear in the country. The number of new cases of infection had started coming down drastically.
