Letter: Children endangered by delta variant


We now have over 400 children in the United States who have died from COVID-19, more currently on ventilators, and another 440 children from Palm Beach County, Fla., now quarantined after the first two days of school. Broward County, Fla., just announced three unvaccinated teachers dying in a 24-hour period this week.

At the same time we have some congressional Republicans and a few GOP governors purposely spreading disinformation regarding masks and vaccines. The metaphorical stench is even more nauseating as more children become ill through their reckless disregard to the deadly delta variant. These same politicians continue to relentlessly jockey for reelection while proudly counting all their campaign dollars obtained through disgusting, baseless politically motivated stands that oppose data-driven medical advice.
