Misleading opportunistic headlines.
A recent headline aggressively insinuated that COVID killed a mother and 2 of her children. While this was factually accurate the obvious intent of the headline was to produce fear that children are dying from the virus. Once you actually read the article you see that all the “children” were middle aged adults and the mother was in her 70’s. What worse is yahoo changed the original NYT headline to a more alarming one “ Coronavirus kills mom and 2 oldest children”. When people criticize the media this is exactly what their talking about. Incredibly irresponsible, opportunistic and appalling behavior.

quit copy/paste so many fear mongering articles about covid-19. Yahoo news is depressing. I'd like to read something out side of covid-19 tragedy or who had *** or getting divorced while quarantined. Yahoo News is an embarrassment to be called news.

Stop scaring people with stories of food shortages. Did you research your sources or do you just print stuff? Don’t contribute to the hype.

We need a new item for observation in the general public, as a truck driver I’ve always tried to stay away from others unless necessary . It’s just a simple way to avoid medical issues and contact from others , nothing new for us , however I am disturbed by what I see out here .
In Houston two days ago , and people are out in abundance . Most don’t have masks or gloves , sanitizer is not available at all .
People using their shirts to open doors , and then they walk into a restroom sue it and open the door .without washing hands , they only practice a somewhat visual precaution when others can see them .
Is it time to shame people with videos and photos ? Maybe so because their actions say so , after watching twenty people grab the same door only one used precaution.
As a former restaurant operator I can say that the whata Burger and Sonic brands are and have been miles ahead of this , it’s a ritualistic practice in each of these .
What can we do ?

I really do not understand how they can complain about raising number of Corona deaths here in South of Florida??? In order to make a profit, some "intelligent idiots" brought thousands and thousands of people here... Starting Christmas time, South of Florida is unbearable...
And than, they write: Corona cases are close to 8000...
A suggestion??? Make a city nice and good looking how it was in July to August last year... Anybody, who was not here in Florida at that time, should leave the state immediately...
Otherwise, we will soon have a 200,000 new cases... Clear???
And do NOT think how to make profit!!! You will have just corpses unless city is nicely half empty, how it was in July and August last year... Clear??
