Today’s Good News Stories from the Coronavirus Outbreak

Here are 5 more global good news stories from the outbreak . . .

1. A few years ago, a dental group in Montana accidentally ordered WAY too many facemasks . . . like a million of them. And they still had 700,000 left in storage. So now they're donating them to make sure hospitals don't run out.

2. Here's an easy way to do something nice. There's a new trend called "bear hunts," where you put a teddy bear in your window so kids can walk by and count how many they find. It's based on a popular children's book called "We're Going on a Bear Hunt".

3. Health officials in the U.K. said they needed 250,000 volunteers to help deal with the crisis. And in the first 24 hours, 400,000 people signed up.

4. This is pretty ingenious. The head physician at a hospital in Italy figured out how to turn full-face snorkeling masks into life-saving ventilators. Now the company that manufactures them is helping out.

5. The Amish have started sewing reusable facemasks for healthcare workers to use if they run out of regular ones. And JOANN Fabrics is giving away supplies to anyone who wants to make them.
