The cardinal difference between the coronavirus and the flu is named

During the flu epidemic, the majority of the population has immunity, which allows you to stop the spread of the disease, a specialist from Washington University in St. Louis, Abigail Carlson, told Business Insider.

At the same time, humanity does not have herd immunity against the coronavirus, he noted.

Carlson stressed that because of this, a huge number of people can get infected with this virus.

According to the latest estimates, there are now more than a million infected people in the world and more than 50,000 who have died from the coronavirus.
