The following is a Letter to the Editor we received. We are posting it with the anonymity attributed to it.
It is premised upon a direct link between secular education and pandemic deaths.
While we do not necessarily agree with the numbers of dead as it relates to education, primarily because there are other factors that might underlie why Covid-19 kills some and not others, the premise holds true if you look to the sheer numbers of sick within the communities our writer cites.
The rate of infection is consistent with the premise, namely that education and respect for secular authority is keeping people healthier.
