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

1.  A brother and sister in Texas opened a lemonade stand, and used the profits to buy snacks for doctors and nurses in their hometown.  They ended up with about $400, plus some donations from Venmo after their mom talked them up on Facebook.

2.  Your odds of catching the virus on a plane might be lower than you think.  A professor at M.I.T. ran some numbers.  On a two-hour flight, he says you have a 1 in 4,300 chance of getting sick.  And if the middle seat is empty, it's 1 in 7,700.

3.  A five-year-old boy in El Paso has been putting together COVID-19 care packages for essential workers who live in his neighborhood.  His mom helps put them together with things like hand sanitizer and Lysol.  Then he delivers them on his Power Wheel.

4.  A couple in Savannah, Georgia who've been married 79 years both just celebrated their 100th birthday.  Billy and Nellie Jones were born four days apart in 1920, and they've lived in the same house since 1958.  His birthday was Friday, and hers is today.  So over the weekend, their whole neighborhood came out for a drive-by birthday party.
