Herd immunity

The Corona Guinea Pig Israel – a Case Study

Israel is at the moment the world champion of the vaccination programs in the world. It managed to vaccinate 52.16% of the population (4,634,427), and is currently reaching the (theoretical) part of 59% herd immunity ( 4,634,427 vaccinated people and with 633,991 people who were infected), they have 5,268,418 people immune, and so 59% of the population.

Virus infections

But do we see the effects of the virus already?

According the theory and assumptions, when a population will have a herd immunity of 60%, it is enough protected that the number of new infections will be drastic reduced and assumingly the pandemic will disappear. Reaching this percentage means that the 60% of the population is vaccinated and/or immune after infection and recovery. 

The Herd Immunity versus COVID-19

Herd immunity is a form of indirect protection from infectious disease that occurs when a sufficient percentage of a population has become immune to an infection, whether through vaccination or previous infections, thereby reducing the likelihood of infection for individuals who lack immunity.
