GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (KSNB) - Just over two years ago no one would have ever thought about grabbing a mask before they left the house, then March 2020 hit.

Since then Central Nebraska and all of America has lost many lives as a result of the virus. There have also been medical advancements like vaccines, and other medical life saving discoveries.

Teresa Anderson with the Central District Health Department expressed frustration about misinformation that caused harm during the fight against the Coronavirus.

“What we would consider the most problematic is the stream and continuing stream of disinformation, where it is really hard for people to glean the truth and process science and science methods,” Anderson said.

But Anderson also said she is proud of the support the medical field has received from the community.

“I also have to tell you we have a really strong foundation of support from our community that enables us to get accomplished what we need to accomplish,” Anderson said.

The CDHD’s Health Director also said with a variant possible in the near future, now is not the time to become complacent.
