    In addition, a mammoth campaign begins in Delhi today to determine the spread of the coronavirus disease.

    The serological test or the sero surveillance study is part of the COVID-10 response plan which has been prepared by the Centre for Delhi.

    The serological survey will be conducted in all the 11 districts in Delhi between June 27 and July 10 to enable authorities to undertake a comprehensive analysis of Covid-19 and then prepare a broad strategy to combat the pandemic.
