Disagrees with columnist’s viewpoint

To the editor:

I disagree with statements of Jack Loesch in his column, “The hoax that is the virus,” in The Salem News of Monday, Aug. 17.

Specifically, he said, “It doesn’t take a common sense prodigy to realize that the China Virus is just another media created and overblown disaster that the lapdog politicians bought hook, line, and sinker.”

Further, he stated, “Stay at home orders, shuttering businesses and mask wearing are all unnecessary.”

And I’d guess that the families of more than 170,000 Americans who, according to Johns Hopkins University, have died in the coronavirus pandemic would also disagree.
