Max Armstrong talks about lawsuits against China, long-term care facility deaths, egg demand and hearing about goodwill efforts.

Some legal experts say lawsuits brought against China for "causing" the coronavirus won't be successful.

A high percentage of COVID-19 deaths are coming from long-term care facilities.

The demand for eggs in grocery stores is high. However, much of the U.S. egg production system is geared to fluid eggs for restaurants, so 1,000s of layers are having to be euthanized.

A hotel chain in Iowa is offering deep discounts on hotel rooms to those on the front lines of the panedemic.

Max is concerned that the works of good coming out of the pandemic is grossly underreported. He wants to hear the goodwill stories. Contact him on Twitter (@MaxArmstrong).
