Estimating seroprevalence is crucial for controlling the transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). There are few published serosurveys in low-income and middle-income countries, which comprise over two-thirds of confirmed cases of COVID-19. Socioeconomic disparities and population density might drive disease dynamics in megacities that account for a large share of India’s cases. To address these issues, we estimated prevalence in six slum and non-slum communities across three wards (one each from the three zones) of Mumbai, India.
