More "Good News" Stories from the Coronavirus Outbreak

Coronavirus Good News

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

1.  A news station in Detroit did a story on a 77-year-old veteran who survived polio as a kid, and has now beaten the coronavirus twice.  He got it earlier this year, and then a second time while being treated at a V.A. hospital in Ann Arbor.

2.  Four hospital workers in Canada just hit a lottery jackpot worth around $4.6 million.  So just over a million bucks each.  They're planning to donate some of it to their local hospital system.

3.  I don't think anyone blames these two for not social distancing:  A guy from New Orleans named Wes Fenner recently found his mom 45 years after she gave him up for adoption.  She was only 16 when she had him, and it turned out she'd been searching for him too.  He says they hugged for about 20 minutes the first time they met.

4.  A guy from Hawaii named Elton Goo was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in 2016.  And he's been spending the last four years traveling the world.  But when the pandemic hit, he ran out of his meds. He was in Peru, and couldn't leave.  So he rationed his medication until they were all gone, and thought he was finished at that point.  But then this week, he got a call from his doctor . . . who told him that somehow, he's now CANCER-FREE. They don't know how it happened, but he says he's excited to have more time.  Especially because his first grandchild is on the way.
