Turn off Fox and discover new reality

| September 14, 2021 1:00 AM

I would like to respond to the letter from Catherine Fahrig, published on Thursday.

At no time, from any source, has a claim been made that masks stop virus particles. Masks are designed to stop droplets of spittle which carry the virus, and are thousands of times larger than the virus.

The number of people getting sick after vaccination is statistically insignificant. Sure, it happens. Because it happens once in 10,000 times is not a valid reason to avoid vaccination. If you understood anything about statistics and large numbers, you would not make such a claim.

Mask wearing  no more of a "personal choice" than driving sober or not being allowed to yell fire in a crowded theater.

Catherine, if you cannot understand the science involved in transmissible disease, there is a world of information available. Start by turning off Fox, and you discover an entirely new reality.
