Here are a few more good news stories from the outbreak . . .
1. Rapid COVID-19 tests that only take 15 to 30 minutes are now being rolled out across the world. And they could save thousands of lives by slowing the spread. Around 120 million of the tests will go to low and middle-income countries.
2. In other health news, a biotech company in Australia has a nasal spray that might prevent more serious cases of COVID-19. They haven’t done human trials yet, but they think it boosts your immune system and stops the virus from replicating in your body. They tried it on a bunch of ferrets, and it worked 96% of the time.
3. People are getting creative to save Halloween this year. There’s a video making the rounds of a guy in Michigan who built a candy zipline to help trick-or-treaters stay safe. And a guy in Texas turned a potato cannon into a candy cannon.
