Almost everyone in Korea now has antibodies against COVID-19, new data suggest.
According to the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency, an estimated 95 percent of people in the country have them, either naturally after getting infected or from a vaccine. The agency surveyed more than 1,600 participants from January to April.
The antibody positivity rate from infections increased from 0.6 percent in January to a whopping 36.1 percent in April mainly because of the Omicron variant.
The government is seeking to test to up to 30,000 people this year for a more comprehensive picture.
