The latest sero survey from two of the most affected cities in the country — Mumbai and Delhi — have sparked the hope for herd immunity against COVID-19.

However, experts warn that it may be too soon to say that a big chunk of the population has developed antibodies against the novel coronavirus. Even those who may have, may see the resistance depleting after some time.

The fall in active cases and fresh infections should not be a cue for being less careful. The count may fall but it will not disappear in a hurry. Masks, gloves, social distancing and other protective measures should continue to avoid contraction.
