Far-right conspiracy theorists say 94% of US COVID-19 deaths don't count because those Americans had underlying conditions. That's bogus.

Patient Doreen Mount is comforted by a radiologist in the X-ray department at the Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital in Blackburn, Britain, May 14, 2020. The CDC's weekly report on US COVID-19 deaths breaks down fatalities by age, sex, race, and comorbidities — health conditions that increase a person's risk of a severe case. Because only 6% of Americans who died of COVID-19 had no preexisting conditions, some people think those are the only people who the virus has truly killed. That's f...

Wearing glasses may help protect you from the coronavirus, but it's not worth getting them if you don't need them for vision

Crystal Cox/Insider A small study out of China found people who wear glasses regularly were less likely to be hospitalized with COVID-19.  Though not as protective as goggles and face shields, glasses may provide a barrier against the virus or prevent people from touching their faces.  Other factors could be at play that explain the link, though, and experts still don't recommend getting glasses if you don't otherwise need them.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
