Regarding the May 9 front-page article “The lucky few who haven’t caught it”:
For most of the pandemic, health-care professionals have clearly stated that these measures will significantly protect people from infection. To this reader, that is the important point. It is irresponsible to suggest that luck or genetic disposition is more significant than the actions individuals can take to protect themselves. Though the government and the media have declared that we “must move on” and “resume normal life,” if you want to minimize your chance of contracting the coronavirus, simply continue the protective measures that have proved effective all along.
