The data said that as of Thursday morning, the recovery rate has improved to around 86.6%, with a total of 90,966 recoveries out of 1,05,004 cases. 2,227 deaths have been reported in Chennai.

The Greater Chennai Corporation has completed collecting samples for sero survey in the city and has started to test the samples to assess the trends in the prevalence of COVID-19 virus in the city.

Sero survey involves testing the blood samples of the subjects for antigens and antibodies developed against the virus. The survey result will help the civic body in assessing the exact number of the population exposed to the virus and develop immunity against it. Due to several asymptomatic cases, the government could not have the exact data about the prevalence of the virus.

According to data released by the Greater Chennai Corporation, Kodambakkam zone is worst-hit among the 15 zones.
