The concept of herd immunity is well-known to Chinese audiences. After the epidemic spread from China to the United Kingdom in 2020, the controversial measures taken by the United Kingdom to open the city gates to introduce the new crown virus, use natural immunity to achieve herd immunity in order to produce anti-epidemic in the whole society.

As soon as this concept was proposed, it immediately caused great controversy in the Chinese-speaking society. At that time, China was implementing grid-based home isolation management nationwide. In an interview with a BBC reporter, Chen Zhengming, a professor of epidemiology at Oxford University in the United Kingdom, pointed out that the misunderstanding of herd immunity stems from improper communication by the British government, cultural differences between the East and the West, and some misinterpreted reports from the media.

At that time, the public believed that the way to achieve herd immunity was to deliberately infect people with the virus to produce antibodies.

With the renewed awareness of the new crown epidemic and the new crown virus, all walks of life have begun to understand that the ways to achieve herd immunity are natural immunity and immunity achieved through vaccination.
