Nearly a year ago, as the COVID-19 virus reached our shores, Americans took drastic steps to protect their family, friends, and neighbors. Small businesses were ordered to shut their doors, schools closed for in-person instruction, and many prepared to stay safe at home. At the time, the world knew very little about this virus, which originally was covered up by the Chinese Communist Party.
Hindsight is 20/20. A year later, researchers and scientists know much more about COVID-19 – and they continue to work toward the development of innovative treatments, as well as multiple safe and effective vaccines.
