Take the COVID-19 risk seriously

To the Editor:

This is in response to the recent Forum entry “Coronavirus a political tool”. I am pleased that the great majority of people are trusting the scientists and doctors who are advising us to take the risk of COVID-19 infection seriously. We cannot just brush this off as a “political tool the left is using against Trump.”

I remember my mom telling us about so many people dying in the influenza pandemic of 1918; how her daddy insisted that everyone stay home, how an official came to their house and told him he was breaking the law by keeping his children out of school. But, he still kept them home. And, none of his family were victims of that deadly virus.

I am a conservative. Protection of my family, friends and neighbors is of primary importance to me. I choose to trust the experts and follow their advice for the sake of my family, friends, community and all those additional people who will die if we don’t greatly decrease the spread of this deadly virus.
