More Than a Dozen Gorillas at Zoo Atlanta Test Positive for COVID-19
Covid cases are still high in certain parts of the country and at some zoos too. It seems that the Atlanta zoo is dealing with an outbreak as at least thirteen gorillas have tested positive for covid-19 according to initial test results.
Staffers noticed some of the gorillas were demonstrating mild symptoms, including coughs, nasal discharges, and a slight loss of appetite. Though it is unclear how the gorillas contracted the disease, Atlanta Zoo officials say they believe the infections may have originated from a COVID-positive staffer who was asymptomatic. The team member in question was reportedly fully vaccinated and wearing Personal Protective Equipment when dealing with the gorillas, suggesting she was unaware that she had been carrying the virus.

Yeah so if you want to make your wallets a little less bulky , you can now store your legal id and driver’s license on your iPhone.
Eight states including Maryland will soon let anyone with an iPhone or apple watch store their ID or driver’s license in the Wallet app which you’ll be able to use at the airport for TSA checkpoints and there’ll be special lines at airports for those customers too.
