More than half of the people living in the three slums of the Indian business capital, Mumbai, have antibodies to the coronavirus, according to a new study. In other words, they are infected or have been infected with the coronavirus. In this area alone, only 16 percent of people living outside the slums were infected.

The first case of the COVID-19 pandemic in India was reported on 30 January 2020, originating from China. As of July 30, there have been 35,035 deaths reported from nearly 1.6 million cases.

The results came after a survey of 7,000 people in three densely-populated slums in early July. As of July 28, there were more than 110,000 cases of coronavirus in Mumbai, with 6,187 deaths.

The study was conducted by the Mumbai Local Government, Niti Aayog Government Advisory Council, and The Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR). It was found that 57% of people living in the slums of Matunga and Dahisar were infected with the coronavirus.

These three slums, located east and west Mumbai, are home to about 1.5 million people. Researchers involved in the study told Mizzima that the results point to some epidemics in Mumbai, one of the worst-hit cities in India.

The first is that the prevalence of the virus is higher than previously estimated in the slums of more than half of Mumbai’s 12.5 million people. Researchers also believe that the initial test results were statistically accurate and reflect the real situation.

“The three locations we selected for testing showed different numbers of people infected with the coronavirus, which differed between people living in slums, houses, and apartments, mainly because we wanted to know how population density is affecting the spread of the disease,” said Dr. Ullas Esculla.

The researchers said that the study, which looked at only three of the city’s 24 wards, did not represent a “coronavirus” spread across the city. “However, we believe that the prevalence of the virus in other regions is not significantly different from the number found in this survey,” said Dr. Sandi Jenner of TIFR.

Despite the large population, the spread of the virus has been slow in other cities. According to a survey conducted in May and July, one in six people in London will die. In New York City, only one in five people are infected with the virus and develop antibodies in their blood.

A survey by the Indian government in July found that nearly one in four locals in Delhi were infected with the virus. The high prevalence of the virus in the slums of Mumbai may be due to the fact that many locals share shared facilities, such as shared toilets. “These results indicate how overpopulation plays a key role in the spread of the virus,” said Dr. Jennyja.

Mumbai, colloquially known as Bombay, is the capital city of the Indian state of Maharashtra. According to United Nations, as of 2018, Mumbai was the second-most populous city in India after Delhi and the seventh-most populous city in the world with a population of roughly 20 million.

The study found that although many people in the three neighborhoods were infected with the virus, the majority of those who showed no symptoms at all, or with few or no symptoms, had fewer deaths due to recovery. The death rate is from one in 1,000. There was only one in 2,000. This is less than the death rate in the whole city due to coronavirus.

Women were also more likely to be infected, whether inside or outside the slums. “I do not know the cause, but it is very interesting. The cause can be everything from social interactions to biological differences,” said Dr. Coulter.

With the declining number of people infected with the virus in Mumbai, questions have been raised as to whether the population has developed an immunity to the virus. As many as 717 new cases were reported in Mumbai on Tuesday. This is the lowest number in three months.

When the number of people who become resistant to the virus reaches the required number of people, they can become infected and stop the disease from spreading.

“Currently, there is no answer. We do not know how resistant the virus will be. The results will be revealed after repeated tests,” said Dr. Coulter. There has been an increase in the spread of the COVID-19 virus in these three areas. Another survey will be conducted in August to determine the decline.
