Why bars are a breeding ground for the coronavirus, and you should always take your drink to-go

Bars are closing — again — in several states across the US, as more people who head out for drinks with friends are getting infected with the coronavirus. But in many states, and countries including the UK, bars are opening for the first time this week. Dr. Anthony Fauci said earlier this week that bars are “really not good” places to be hanging out right now.

In a new study, researchers describe 270 Aboriginal artifacts they found at two underwater archaeological sites off Australia’s northwest coast. The stone tools are at least 7,000 years old.
