Vaccine is the most effective weapon against corona. This has been confirmed in a survey of 2.9 lakh corona patients in Mumbai. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) surveyed 2 lakh 90 thousand corona patients from January 1 to June 17. It was found that not only the second dose of the vaccine, but the first dose also works better.
According to the survey, out of 2.9 lakh people, only 26 came under the grip of corona after the second dose. At the same time, 10 thousand 500 people got infected after applying the first dose. If we look at the BMC data, between January 1, 2021 and June 17, 2021, about 40 lakh 75 thousand 393 people got the vaccine in Mumbai. Out of this, only 0.23% people were found to be corona infected.
Most of the patients with home isolation in the survey
According to the data collected by BMC's war room, 3.95 lakh new patients were found in Mumbai in the second wave. Out of these, the War Room contacted 2.9 lakh patients and surveyed them. Most of them were patients with home isolation. According to BMC, during this time more than 1 lakh people were also admitted in the hospital, their entry is yet to be done.
BMC's Executive Health Officer Dr. Mangala Gomare said that we expect to see the same trend in them as well. He told that we had asked to submit the data of patients admitted in all the hospitals separately, most of the hospitals have given their reports. He further said, 'These numbers show that vaccines are effective in preventing serious infections in most of the population.'
10 lakh people got both the corona vaccines in Mumbai
According to the latest government data, 53.83 lakh people have been vaccinated in Mumbai so far, of which 10 lakh people have been given both doses.
BMC going to conduct fifth sero survey

Through this it will be found out how many people have antibodies. This survey is being done in all 24 wards. In these samples of 4 thousand people will be taken.
Fourth sero survey was done of people below 18 years of age
Mumbai was the most affected by this disease after the corona infection started in the country last year.
