Shutdowns and closures of various events, businesses, and other facilities continue to maintain in the wake of coronavirus. As the government puts together more COVID-19 tests, many people are anxious and social unrest continues to mount.

In the wake of extreme reactions to the coronavirus, the United States government is urging Americans to remain calm. This past weekend, President Trump recommended people to decline from hoarding and buying out supplies from grocery stores. Government at national, state, and city levels continue to affirm their commitment to serving the American people.

While deaths and other negative consequences of COVID-19 must be taken seriously, awareness of coronavirus recoveries is equally imperative. Covering the worst aspects of COVID-19 while declining to note recoveries from the virus only further engenders mass hysteria.
