Here are a few more good news stories from the outbreak...

1.  A team of scientists in India have developed a cheap paper test for coronavirus that almost works like a pregnancy test.  It could become a real game changer in terms of our ability to test ourselves at home in an affordable, accurate, fast way.

2.  There's a guy in California named Mitchell Couch who's been building desks for low-income students who need a place to set up for remote learning.  He's already built dozens of desks for people in the community.

3.  A new study found wearing a face mask does NOT lead to a buildup of carbon dioxide or restrict a person's oxygen.  So we can all drop THAT excuse.

4.  An elderly Vietnam veteran in Washington who was working as an elementary school volunteer made such an impact on the kids that a lot of them are now keeping in touch as pen pals . . . and even volunteering to check up on him or walk his dog.

5.  People all over have begun embracing a Dutch concept called "niksen" during the pandemic . . . that's a way of de-stressing by doing NOTHING.  You just give yourself permission to spend time looking out a window, daydreaming, or hanging with your pet.
