To the editor: The science is in and the data is out. Now, it is time we get back to a normal way of life and stop this nonsense surrounding COVID-19. Many are living in fear and there is no reason for it. The current administration wants to keep us living in fear so they can continue to control our lives. They have lied about schools and sporting events being super spreaders, lied about lockdowns and herd immunity and continue to lie about variants being more dangerous than the virus itself.
Science is showing us that the virus is on the decline and if we don’t get things back to normal, we will never be able to enter the stage of herd immunity where resistance to spread a contagious disease within a population results if a sufficiently high proportion of individuals become immune to the disease, especially through vaccination.
