Topic of Immunity may have never been as pertinent to the our modern times than the current pandemic. While governments are scrambling to dole out a vaccine that will bypass all safety standards, libertarian groups are calling this all a hoax and screaming deeper conspiracy. Where does one find sanity and security? The deaths around us are real.
When I hear the word Immunity, it sounds synonymous with Protection, Exempt or Unaffected by an assault or trauma, either physical or psychological.
The medically trained side of me thinks more on the lines of Immunology- how our body’s wisdom is capable of warding off infections by micro-organisms and how seemingly mundane organs like the skin, mucous membrane linings of our airways and gut help in regulating our immunity.
