Coronavirus: Is India the best option for this?

Even though hundreds of countries around the world are trying their best to come up with a vaccine for Coronavirus, there hasn’t been any success yet.

The world wouldn’t be able to go back to the way it was before the pandemic, without a proper solution to the problem. Things would be very different even if there was a vaccine, but things will be worse without it.

Many experts are saying that the fastest way to beat Coronavirus is to achieve herd immunity. However, it is not something that can be achieved artificially. Herd immunity is something that is naturally achieved when enough people come in contact with the virus.

According to the latest reports, India might be the best country to try and achieve herd immunity right now, as 82% of its population is below the age of 50.

If a vaccine is found, it would be best. But if a vaccine isn’t found, all that anyone anywhere can hope for is herd immunity.
