RD, appreciated, but, sources for those welcome good news pointers would have been helpful. Still, I endorse your "So it's not ALL bad news. Let's care for each other and stay focused on safety of those most vulnerable."

I didn't compile the list but I checked most of them out.  If you highlight them and hit search, you can find data on any of them.  I think it is a good list.

Re: How about some good news?

It was made official last night on CNN, hope you were watching. JHU send ah possible cure to the FDA, for approval and testing.  I told you last week, that it was reported on our local news, that JHU made a break through that could be ah cure for COVD19.  The discovery was tested and showed it could be very effective.

Ah wonder if you go still doubt me.
