Coronavirus Coverage

BERLIN, GERMANY - MARCH 09: An elderly woman stands before empty shelves of sold out toilet paper and paper towels at a drug store on March 9, 2020 in Berlin, Germany. Household items such as soap, disinfectants, toilet paper and some packaged groceries are in short supply in many shops as people hoard in fear of shortages due to the coronavirus spread. As the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus infection continues to rise daily across Germany so is the impact of the virus on everyday life. Businesses are increasing home office work, airlines are decreasing their flight capacity, schools with cases of the virus are closing temporarily, some sports events are void of spectators, shops are selling out of disinfectants and large-scale public events are being cancelled.

Because nobody ever went broke from giving.

As a senior citizen, Layne McKeel of Georgetown, Tennessee hasn’t been able to get out of his house very much since the start of the coronavirus outbreak. He went to the grocery store after he picked up his disability payment. When it was time to check out, he found himself $33 short of his $173 bill. Layne was about to put some items back on the shelf, but before he could do so, the 17-year-old grocery store cashier, Elizabeth Taylor, insisted on paying for all of his groceries. Layne was extremely touched and called her an “angel” and “the light of the day.”
