How to help end the coronavirus.

I think everyone smarter than me should try to design and distribute a comfortable, secure, 3d-printed if you have to, face mask with a microphone inside and a speaker outside the mask so essentials workers can speak without taking off there mask.

Taking vitamin D could reduce risk of COVID-19 infections and death.
