It will also tell us about anti-bodies in people who are already vaccinated. A large scale serosurvey in the country will be very useful," Dr Rakesh Mishra, Advisor, CSIR-Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology told ANIThe Centre had said on Friday that ICMR's fourth round of national-level serosurvey will begin this month.
