As the number of worldwide deaths caused by novel coronavirus advances toward 100,000, New York has recorded 799 deaths, the highest number of casualties in a single day.
This coronavirus time period has been an era of firsts; the unemployment rate in the United States has never risen so sharply in such a short time as 6.6 million americans filed for unemployment in the last week.
Additionally, there has not been another time when Americans have witnessed, directly or indirectly, so many people die on a daily basis, according to the New York Times.

In an era where it can feel like every headline consists of nothing but gloom and doom, it’s important to be informed of the positive developments regarding this pandemic.

“If their antibody test is positive, one can formulate strategies about whether or not they would be at risk or vulnerable to getting reinfected,” said Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, according to CNN’s website. “Having antibodies to the virus has the potential to prevent a recovered coronavirus patient from contracting the disease for a second time.”
