The serological Survey for SARS-COV2 estimates that around 57 percent of the Mumbai slum population has developed antibodies.

A doctor from TIFR stated that a large population in the slums was asymptomatic and would sooner or later reach herd immunity. However, people from non-slum areas need to maintain social distancing protocols.
