Letter: Natural selection will take its course

When hungry lions (a pride) look at a herd, they choose the weak one. After the target is down, the herd moves on. In the case of Ebola, SARS, COVID-19 and many more, the herd (us humans) are more vulnerable each week that goes by.

We all know the Rule: “The law of evolution is that the strongest survives!” And we know the success of the Polio vaccine, which all babies receive. The strongest survives refers to diseases also. Vaccines were developed and took on COVID-19 and about 60% of Americans are fully vaccinated (California at 63%). Thus, COVID-19 has been failing to infect tens of millions of vaccinated Americans, and as any High School Biology student will tell you, COVID-19 got stronger with new variants to be able to continue to infect people with the targets being the unvaccinated, the weakest of the herd.

Since last year in several states on the East Coast, hundreds of veterans in nursing homes died from COVID-19. The food tray goes down the hallway and COVID-19 jumps into every room with elderly veterans where the “pride” saw the weakest of the herds.

The tens of millions of Americans who are not vaccinated should know that before the “pride,” takes you down, you have infected family members and others, so, the herd will be thinned down even more.

The North State vaccination rate is one of the lowest in California so that is why our hospitals, morgues and funeral homes are working overtime.
