Help for a Coronavirus SURVIVAL In Reserve

My son moved back into my house when the Coronavirus just started up. Then...he got sick. I took care of him and it took about a month of him-coughing-high fever..105.7 at the highest. Sleeping in my sons room- listening to him BREATHING IN WATER. It was terrible. I can't let him die!! My husband died 4 years ago-I'm not going to loose him too! I spent everything I had for food-medicine-washing clothing and my son. I... more »

COVID-19 Response: Invisible Problems


I sneeze wearing masks that touch my nose. Anything that rubs lightly against the tip or sits hard on the bridge makes my nose run and I sneeze.

Due to COVID-19 many African countries are in partial or full lockdown. Because of the lockdown situation, agricultural products can't get from the farm to market centers.

Need access to free reading material

From a friend in Denver:
All our Denver libraries are closed and I even saw police tap around the drop box to return books. I'm usually a library gal when it comes to reading materials, but am fortunate that I could place an order for a few books this weekend off amazon. What's being done to safely promote free access to books and learning materials? I got an email today from a small town library I was part of once and... more »
