Coronavirus Good News

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

1.  National parks have been a great place to get away this year.  And for Veterans Day, the V.A. announced that all vets and gold star families now have a lifetime free pass to visit them.

2.  A retired contractor in Massachusetts has been staying busy during the pandemic by building a disabled veteran a new home.  He got his town to sell him the land for $1, and people have donated around $40,000 in time to help make it happen.

3.  Only 26% of Americans say they WON'T trust the Pfizer vaccine that's supposed to be over 90% effective.  So it sounds like a lot of people will be willing to take it.

4.  An Oxford professor on the U.K.'s vaccine taskforce said he thinks the vaccines will work.  And we might start getting back to normal this spring.  (He was specifically talking about the U.K.  But if he's right, then we're not far behind.)

5.  A 64-year-old guy from New Jersey named Andy Priliszh spent 75 days in the hospital this year, including 54 on a ventilator.  And all he wanted when he got out was a nice big steak.  But when he left the hospital in June, he couldn't eat solid foods. The virus ravaged his body, so he couldn't swallow.  But after four months of rehab, he was up and eating again.  And he finally got his steak the other day.  A local butcher made sure it was a good one, and brought him a 48-ounce ribeye.
