Letter, 11/20: Herd immunity isn't worth it

Sen. Mike Groene

Sen. Mike Groene of North Platte holds up a spreadsheet as he speaks during debate in February.

State Sen. Mike Groene wants America to achieve herd immunity, which could require 200 million cases of COVID-19 ("'I finally got my wish;' state senator contracts COVID," Nov. 11).

Great idea, Mike. With approximately 1.5% of cases resulting in death, that's 3 million American deaths. Is wearing a mask really so onerous a task to save a few million lives?
