Here are a few more good news stories from the outbreak . . .
1. A lot of couples have had to postpone weddings this year, but it hasn’t given many of them cold feet. 82% say that going through the pandemic together has made them want to marry the person even more.
2. A 48-year-old guy from Long Island named Scott Cohen almost died of COVID-19 in April. But he got plasma from a woman named Abbie Park who’d already beaten the virus. And her antibodies helped HIM beat it too. They just met up in person for the first time on Tuesday, and he thanked her for saving his life.
3. You might be able to travel overseas without quarantining soon. A new “COVID passport” system is being tested for the first time at London-Heathrow Airport this week. There’s an app that stores info on when your last test was. And once there’s a vaccine, you could use it to prove you’ve been vaccinated.
4. Earlier this year, a guy in New York named Woody Latour started hanging posters outside his house with lame dad jokes on them, just to lift people’s spirits. And he’s still at it. Here’s his most recent one: “Out of all the inventions in the last 100 years, the dry erase board is probably the most RE-MARKABLE.”
