    ROANOKE, Va. — Buying panic because of the coronavirus has caused plenty of concern among shoppers, particularly elderly consumers who are finding it difficult to find paper goods.

    Owners of a Virginia restaurant have decided to step in and help.

    In a gracious move -- and a savvy marketing ploy -- Las Tapatias Mexican Kitchen in Roanoke will give away one free roll of toilet paper to anyone over 60 years old beginning Tuesday, WSLS reported.

    INDEED!

    An antibody against COVID-19
    Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, the team of professor Xavier Saelens has been working relentlessly on a potential treatment for the viral infection. Earlier work of the scientists identified an antibody that binds an important part of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

    Today, the lab announces new findings. These findings show that the antibody can neutralize the virus. This is an important step forward in the pursuit of an antiviral drug against the new coronavirus.

    The new results provide the first evidence that the antibody could prevent the new coronavirus from infecting human cells.
    Importantly, the
    antibody can also be produced at large-scale using production processes that are common in the biopharmaceutical industry.

    When Eight Oaks Farm Distillery founder Chad Butters heard the price of hand sanitizer had skyrocketed, he decided to be the solution to the problem, according to the Associated Press (AP).

    Monday, his distillery in New Tripoli, Pennsylvania, filled 20 bottles with homemade alcohol-based disinfectant that will be donated to charitable groups who have none.

    This week, the distillery plans to ramp up production and offer the bottles at local farmers’ markets and on its website.

    “We are in a national emergency,” Butters commented.

    “What’s the right thing to do? The right thing to do is support this community by providing something that is in desperate need. We’ll flood the valley with hand sanitizer and drive that price right down,” he said.

    Several other distilleries in Vermont and North Carolina are following Butters’ lead by making their own hand sanitizing solution to give away.

    “We wanted to do something that would be as positive as possible,” said Harold Faircloth, an owner of Green Mountain Distillers in Morrisville, Vermont.

    In a Facebook post Sunday, the distillery offered free hand sanitizer to restaurants whose customers and staff need it.

    “We have spent the last few days distilling some high proof alcohol and we will be using it to make batches of hand sanitizer. We will have this available at the distillery starting today. Just bring in your used containers for a refill,” the post explained.

    As word spread about what Butters was doing, he began getting messages from people and groups requesting his homemade sanitizer
