Shri Kamal Hans, Regarding sample size for latest Delhi Sero Survey: https://www.who.int/immunization/monitoring_surveillance/burden/laboratory/Serosurvey_Manual_chapter_2.pdf PLEASE SEE THIS World Health Organization (WHO) Chapter on Sero Survey design for including a Table covering parameters such as target population and sample size. You might find that the sample size of 28000 for Delhi population is reasonable. 100 samples were collected from EACH MUNICIPAL WARD. more

NCDC is also involved.in this Serosurvey. Once these yest results are obtained, other figures like , Test Positivity Rate (TPR), trend off new cases and collated to arrive at the fugure. Latest TV News is that 1 CRORE(50%) DELHI POPULATION HAVE ANTIBODIES. The attachment alsogives us encouraging news that the ones developed HERD IMMUNITY WILL SERVE AS A PROTECTIVE LAYER BETWEN THE INFECTED AND UNINFECTED THEREBY BREAKING THE CHAIN OF INFECTION. -That is great news.But to save the other 1 Crore Delhi -ites from COVID19, nothing like observing the prototocols till Delhi reaches 80%Herd Immunity- the best. As Vaccines have been developed by Pharma companies and are being rolled out, the vaccines will also will hasten and speed up the process of Herd Immunity. more  
A sample of just 25000 in a city population of over 2 crores? more

Thank you Madam for the more authentic & latest report . The attachment gives more details. From July 2020 ,a total of 5 surveys have been conducted, eac one lasting for roughly 2 weeks. Sample of over 25,000 people were tested.The Delhi Government and National Center for Disease Control(NCDC)in collaboration had done it. more  
Herd immunity is a bit difficult to define. Some experts say that herd immunity only applies when a large mass of people have been vaccinated. more  
Yes this is right due to pollution at many level the Delhites have developed immunities. Covid had come to city from all directions but due to our internal strength we came over it. Mostly persons were working in field due to any reasons so it became easy. Sitting at home was right for some days to break chain but for months it was burden on country and individuals. more
