To the Editor:

Not too long ago someone said that the COVID virus was like the flu and, like the flu, it would disappear in the summer — like a miracle, it would go away. That person was clearly and disastrously wrong. Unfortunately, too many people chose to listen to that uniformed person. So here we are in the summer and the number of people infected with the COVID-19 delta variant is going up and the numbers threaten to be as bad or worse than the infections in the previous 12 months.

A major concern is that those unvaccinated, science-denying vulnerable people will become incubators for a new strain of the virus which could attack even people who have been vaccinated. We can lay all the blame for the spread directly at the feet of the anti-science anti-vaxxers.

In the 50's and 60's there were some that thought flouridation of public water was a communist plot to undermine American peoples health. Unfortunately conspiracy theories have ample growing space in little minds.
