WELCH: Let’s Focus On Most Vulnerable

LETTER from GERRY WELCH

Let’s Focus On

Most Vulnerable

To the Editor:

In the case of the Coronavirus, governments are opening a multi-front war by initiating massive quarantines that are inadvertently weakening the entire system.

Suggestion: Governments focus attention on protecting the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.

Do not, however, defeat the economic support system that feeds and supports us by not allowing life to continue as close to normal as possible.

Other than the aforementioned resolve, treat this virus as you would a serious flu and work on producing vaccines. It is no longer survival of the fittest, it is now survival of the most unfit. If the bar was a limbo bar it would be set so high as to be over most people’s head.

Should the virus mutate and become more serious, then let us cross that bridge if we should come to it.

GERRY WELCH
