Herd immunity refers to the indirect protection from contagious diseases that occurs when a large portion of a community becomes immune to the disease, either through vaccination or previous infection. In the case of COVID-19, achieving herd immunity is a point of debate among experts. Some argue that it can only be achieved through widespread vaccination, while others believe that allowing the virus to spread naturally and infect a significant portion of the population would also lead to herd immunity. However, this approach is controversial due to the potential for overwhelming healthcare systems and high mortality rates.
