New data suggest almost everyone in South Korea now has antibodies against COVID-19.
According to the Central Disease Control Headquarters, nearly 95 percent of people in the country have them, based on tests conducted on more than 16-hundred people from January to April.
These people gained immunity either naturally after getting infected or with a vaccine.
The antibody positivity rate from infections increased from less than one percent in January to a whopping 36 percent in April mainly because of the Omicron wave.
The government is seeking to test to up to 30-thousand people this year.
