If You Think People Are The Worst These Days, These 100 Wholesome Pics May Change Your Mind (New Pics)

It’s tough to stay positive when coronavirus deaths top 10,000 globally and entire nations go on lockdown. And in the midst of the fear and uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, each day seems to bring news that’s worse than the day before. However, as in most major disasters, tragedies, and public health threats, there are reasons for a better future.

So, even though it’s difficult to be the “it could always be worse” type of person during these difficult times, let’s try. After all, what other options do we have? Bored Panda has compiled a list of good news about COVID-19 to complement the ones we already have, so scroll down and check ’em out!

#1 Leadership Indeed

It’s worth mentioning that most people with COVID-19 recover. Current estimates suggest that 99% of people infected will beat it. Some people even don’t experience any of the symptoms at all. Yes, thousands have died, but the overall death rate is about 1% (or perhaps even lower), far less than MERS (about 34%), SARS (about 11%), or Ebola (90%), though a lot higher than the average seasonal flu (0.1%). Condolences to all the lives lost to this illness, and we should expect many more cases, but if we were to isolate the fatality rates, it could be far worse.

Also, scientists have found out how the novel coronavirus breaks into human cells. This will significantly help to develop treatments. It began when researchers revealed the first picture of how the novel coronavirus binds with human respiratory cells to produce more viruses. The scientists in China then solidified the images all the way down to the level of the atoms at the binding points. With this news, understanding how the virus enters cells will significantly aid researchers in finding drugs and vaccines to fight the virus.

A good example of this also comes from China where local medical authorities reported that a drug used in Japan to treat new strains of influenza appeared to be effective in coronavirus patients. Zhang Xinmin, an official at China’s science and technology ministry, said favipiravir, developed by a subsidiary of Fujifilm, had produced promising results in clinical trials in Wuhan and Shenzhen involving 340 patients.

#3 These Are Epic Times

Next, humanity’s response to future pandemics should improve. “The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed shortcomings in healthcare systems throughout the world that provide an opportunity to improve them,” Robert H. Shmerling, MD, wrote in the Harvard Health Blog. “For example, a faster global response, better and quicker distribution of testing kits, and more coordinated and coherent public messaging should be expected the next time around. (No guarantees, of course.)”

The new coronavirus epidemic is a huge problem that’s probably only gonna get bigger in the following weeks and months. For those who are infected and those trying to avoid infection, these are definitely tough times. But, as Shmerling put it, “Amid all the doom and gloom, there are some positive stories, positive messages and reasons to remain hopeful.”

#76 Wholesomeness In The Midst Of Covid-19

I work with an older gentleman who has disabilities. I support him in his home, located in an elderly community, which is obviously the neighborhood to avoid right now. As I was leaving at the end of my shift, these people were dropping off supply bags at each door full of stuff which the older people would need during the quarantine. It wasn’t too much in each bag, but they at least gave a roll of toilet paper and some hygiene products. They all had great big smiles and were some of the cheesiest people I’ve seen in awhile. It really brightened my outlook on this lockdown which central/ northern California is going into and contrasted the selfishness of those who have been over buying and hoarding supplies. That made me feel really good and I want to spread the positivity on.

Please be careful y’all, and take care of each other. God bless

#96 Took Mom To Walmart This Morning To Grab A Few Things And As Usual, The Toilet Paper And Paper Towels Were Nowhere To Be Found

As we were walking to the car, we see this guy stopping some elderly folks and handing them bags of toilet paper…. Out of his trunk. I was blown away because I’m usually expecting the worst in people. He came over to us and asked if we needed some then handed my mom a bag with, I think 5 or 6 rolls. Then he says he didn’t want money… He was just out helping the older folks that needed it! That was pretty rad.

Thank you, toilet paper guy!!
