There's a steady dose of negative news out there but GROOVE LIFE shared some good news coming out about COVID-19.
Note: We've linked the original articles under each point and have an important notice at the end of this post.
1. Full recoveries:
There are 147 full recoveries of the COVID-19 virus in the United States. Maybe even more encouraging is that of the current 19,969 active cases ONLY 64, or 0.003% of those cases are considered serious or critical. (See Source Here and we recognize these numbers are changing daily)
2. No new cases in China:
For the first time since the virus broke out, there have been no new cases of COVID- 19 in China during the last 24 hours. YAY!!!!!!! (See Article Here)
3. South Korea's dramatic drop in new cases:
After its peak of 909 newly reported COVID-19 cases on February 29th, South Korea has now seen a dramatic drop in the number of new cases reported daily. (See Article Here)
4. Other drugs working:
Doctors in India have successfully treated two Italian patients with COVID-19, by administering a combination of drugs — principally Lopinavir and Ritonavir, alongside Oseltamivir and Chloroquine. Several are now suggesting the same medical treatment, on a case-by-case basis, globally. (See Articles Here & Here)
5. Antibodies to the rescue
Researchers at the Erasmus Medical Center claim to have found an antibody that can fend off infection by COVID-19. (See Article Here)
6. 103-year-old recovery:
A 103-year-old Chinese woman has made a full recovery from COVID-19 after being treated for 6 days in Wuhan, China, becoming the oldest patient to beat the disease. (See Article Here)
7. Retail reopening in China:
42 Apple stores are reopening to the public in China. Other retailers are expected to follow. (See Article Here)
8. Mortality rates may be inflated?
Experts predict that Italy has seen a higher mortality rate of COVID-19 given its significant aging population, as well as its higher percentage of COVID-19 patients with pre-existing health conditions. This might suggest that COVID-19’s fatality rate may have been slightly more inflated than previously thought for the general population. (See Article Here)
9. 2 hour testing:
Cleveland’s MetroHealth Medical Center has developed a COVID-19 test that can now deliver results in just two hours, rather than in a matter of days. (See Article Here)
There are a lot of very smart people working on this. Don’t lose hope! God is in control and we have the choice to stay positive!
