Tips for ParentBy Onlymyhealth Editorial Team / Oct 18, 2020

Herd immunity means anti-communicative ability. The most talked-about coronavirus is currently 'immunity'. That is until the vaccine of the coronavirus comes, then we have to keep our immunity healthy. Now, there is debate and research in many countries on how to increase people's immunity. Being 'Herd Immunity' means generating the strength to fight a virus in large part or usually 70 to 90 per cent of people. Such people become immune to the disease, as the number of people with immunity increases. As such, the risk of the virus will decrease. Because of this, the chain of virus infection remains. That is, even those people whose immunity is weak.

Why is it essential to have herd immunity?

Any virus needs a body to live, only then it can stay alive. In the language of a doctor or scientist, the virus needs a new host. In this case, the virus finds a body with weak immunity. As soon as he sees it, it infects him. In such a situation, if the exemption of most people will be strong, then the virus will not get the body, and after a while, it will automatically disappear. Because the virus also has an age, after that it dies.
