ONENEWS.MY.ID, Jakarta The Indonesian Covid-19 task force spokesperson Wiku Adisasmito said a serological survey across 100 regencies and cities found 86.6 percent of Indonesians have formed a commendable Covid-19 antibodies that are gained either from vaccinations or prior infections. The survey was held from November to December of 2021.

“The data also shows other information that 73.2 percent of the population in the surveyed regions had formed antibodies despite having no records of vaccinations and coronavirus infections,” Wiku wrote in a statement on January 5.

However, he insists that the survey result only represents the antibody level of the community in the 100 regions that were surveyed and is not a representation of the national situation.

Wiku was tight lipped when asked about the regions that were subjected to the survey and said the question should be asked to the Health Ministry or the Home Affairs Ministry.

The survey was conducted by the Home Affairs Ministry in conjunction with the Health Ministry.

Health Ministry’s Covid-19 spokesperson Siti Nadia Tarmizi said the details of the serology survey cannot be published publicly yet as it has not been released by the researchers.
