Meanwhile, a model study has revealed that people who do not get the anti-Covid vaccine pose a threat to those who have been vaccinated as well. Researchers at the University of Toronto in Canada used a simple model to explore the effect of a mixture of unvaccinated and vaccinated people to understand the dimensions of an infectious disease such as the coronavirus. They artificially mixed the population in which people had contact with other groups as well as contact with those who had been vaccinated.

David Fisman of the Dala Lawn School of Public Health at the University of Toronto said many opposed to making the vaccine mandatory say it’s up to the individual’s choice whether or not to get it. Fisman said in a statement that he had found that those who have decided not to get vaccinated are increasing the risk for those who have been vaccinated. The study has been published in the ‘Canadian Medical Association Journal’.
