Perhaps President Biden should have said the coronavirus pandemic is “under control” instead of “over” [“Not over yet,” editorial, Sept. 20]. People are still dying at a rate of about 400 per day.

Simple change will have a big effect on its biology, including change in temperature, radiation and environmental factors. The flu and the coronavirus are here to stay. Because of vaccines and boosters, we are in a better place. They are under control. They are not over.
