Becoming exposed to or infected with an infectious microbe does not necessarily mean developing a noticeable disease. Explain.

AcademicBiologyNCERTClass 9

The strong immune system of the human body fights for the pathogenic microbes present in our body. Specialized cells are present in our body to fight off these microbes. When any foreign particles or microbes enter the body system, these specialized cells produce proteins or secretions to kill them and protect the body from damage.

Thus, although the body exposes to an infected microbe, it does not necessarily develop a noticeable disease due to strong immunity.
