The CDC has updated its “How Coronavirus Spreads” page to reflect the latest science indicating that the virus spreads primarily from person-to-person contact and not via the touching of contaminated objects or surfaces.
There are currently over 1.57 million COVID-19 cases and over 94,700 deaths in the United States, as reported by Johns Hopkins. Of those, 32% of cases and 41% of deaths are in New York and New Jersey. There are over 5.1 million cases and over 332,000 deaths worldwide.
For today’s good news story, I’m highlighting Brunswick Community College students, who were still able to pick up their graduation regalia despite the COVID-19 outbreak. Even in the midst of the challenges created by this crisis, educators are continuing to go above and beyond to ensure graduates get the recognition they deserve.
