The Bahamas has announced US travelers are no longer allowed to visit. Having a is passport is now essentially worthless as there are almost no countries US citizens can enter and likely will remain that way for years. Thanks Trump.

Silver lining, you can let your passport expire and not worry about buying a new one for a few years.

Mine doesn’t expire for several years , hopefully this is over with by then

A coronavirus vaccine developed by the University of Oxford appears safe and trains the immune system.

Trials involving around 1,077 people showed the injection led to them making antibodies and white blood cells that can fight coronavirus.

The findings are hugely promising, but it is still too soon to know if this is enough to offer protection and larger trials are under way.

The UK has already ordered 100 million doses of the vaccine.

I'll tell you where the real road lies: between your ears, behind your eyes. That is the path to paradise, likewise the road to ruin.
