The United Kingdom has decided to fight the virus by adopting a herd immunity system.
Herd immunity is a form of indirect protection from infectious disease that occurs when a large percentage of a population is immune to an infection, thereby providing a measure of protection for individuals who are not immune.
This is a long term step taken by the country to stop the spread of the virus. With the uncertainty of when the vaccine will be available, and many claiming it will take at least 12 to 18 months, and that 40-70% of the entire world population will be affected by it, the UK has taken a bold step by adopting the herd immunity concept.
This step taken by the government is called unethical and inconsiderate by many people in and outside the country
