Joseph G. Allen—  an assistant professor of exposure assessment science and director of the Healthy Buildings program at Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health — recently shared six reasons for optimism right now despite the coronavirus pandemic for The Washington Post.

The six reasons he shared:

  1. There’s good news about therapeutic treatments, which should arrive before vaccines.
  2. Rapid testing through saliva is coming soon, which means you will have a chance to test from home if you feel you have COVID-19.
  3. Experts agree that masks work.
  4. Airborne spread is happening with COVID-19, and experts seem to agree on it.
  5. People exposed to common coronaviruses from colds could protect people from COVID-19.
  6. Vaccine trials seem to be working, too.

There are a lot more details on these pieces of optimism. Head over to The Washington Postto read more about them.
