Only about 10% of people have had an infectious disease caused by the new coronavirus. This was stated on Monday at a briefing by the World Health Organization (WHO) expert Maria Van Kerkhove.
According to her, many studies are currently being conducted on this topic of resistance to coronavirus and many reports are being published around the world, which is carefully studied by the WHO.
“Most studies show that less than 10% of people are seropositive, meaning they have been infected at some point,” Van Kerkhove said. “Health workers are more susceptible to infection, so the indicators are higher in this category.”
An outbreak of the new coronavirus disease was recorded in late 2019 in Central China, spread to most countries, and was recognized by the WHO as a pandemic on March 11.
