    Covid is here to stay. At least for the immediate future. The govt is doing all the right things but people cannot leave everything to the govt. They have to play their part by keeping the covid guidelines. After all it’s your life, people.
    I would like the news to prominently show the number of recoveries in the headlines the same way it shows the new cases and the deaths. The people need to hear some good news with the bad.

      I should mention that this news article did show the recoveries in the headlines so kudos to News Room. This is something that I have not been seeing before in the headlines in the various news outlets. New cases and deaths have been dominating.
