To the Editor:

It is time for the Herald to stop allowing misinformation on the coronavirus.

In Chris Powell editorial of 01/15 he was hunting for someone to blame for virus related issues. He wrote "China might be the place to start as it seems to have originated from bio-weapons lab..."

The Herald should have removed "seems" and entered "in the writer's opinion." Using the word "seems" gives cover to anyone looking to promote false or unsubstantiated theories. Mr. Powell's time and energy may have been better spent looking into the devastating effect unvaccinated people are having on our health care and education systems.
