As the world deals with the new coronavirus, users of Reddit have optimistically turned to looking at the small waves of good coming out of the outbreak. Redditor Imperialpidgeon asked, "What is some uplifting news about the COVID-19 outbreak?"
In a time of global darkness, these answers have us looking at the bright side of things.
From Redditor u/SerendipitousRemedy:
Recently, a 98-year-old recovered from the disease.
From Redditor u/XXmilleniumXX:
It’s not affecting kids very strongly.
From Redditor u/WallflowersAreCool2:
Huge reduction in air pollution over China due to large number of quarantined people.
From Redditor u/Nyrin:
This event is bringing a lot of attention to employer policies on sick leave, remote work, and workplace hygiene. We're very likely going to see some degree of enduring changes in the aftermath and they'll largely all be ones that make things better.
It's sad that we needed a pandemic panic to get there, but it is a silver lining.
