More than half of the population of England was estimated to have Covid-19 antibodies in the week ended March 14, illustrating the impact of the U.K.’s vaccination program.

Some 54.7% of people would have tested positive for antibodies against the coronavirus during the week, suggesting they have been exposed to the virus causing the disease in the past or have been vaccinated, the Office for National Statistics said Tuesday.
