Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
I agree with writer Kevin Holten that many people are overreacting to the COVID pandemic. Some people ignore the virus and risk; others try to sanitize their living spaces. Both are likely to be ineffective. As a physician, I need to remind people that the pandemic is far from over, with newer strains and multiple waves coming. Herd immunity is years away and COVID-19 might never be totally eradicated.
So protect yourself wisely: Please get immunized, wash hands, limit crowds and do wear a mask when indoors with others. Remember, we still have a long way to go.
