News Description

Preliminary findings from a Western Cape survey of pregnant women and people with HIV has found 37% of them tested positive for coronavirus antibodies. While scientists are still debating the extent to which the antibodies detected in laboratory tests protect people from future infection with Sars-Cov-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, the results indicate a very high proportion of people in Cape Town’s most densely populated regions have been exposed to the disease.
