A man after receiving a help as rent thanked with a gesture of gratitude
Many people have lost their jobs due to coronavirus and struggle to pay for basic life necesities, but they are receiving financial lifeline.
And on Friday, an extraordinary gesture of gratitude was seen.
Early Friday morning, a line of people was formed outside of the Columbus Urban League.
Among these needy people was one person named Ryan Griffin.
He lost his hotel job in March due to pandemic.
He says that he daily fear if he will be able to provide for his son.
"It's scary. And it's hurtful. When I look at him and think I might not be able to feed you or keep a roof over your head, you know? It makes me — it makes me sad," he said.
On Friday, Urban the Urban League distributed over 100 checks, from amounts ranging from $500 to $1,000. But this was only the start as they say they have more than 600 applications waiting to be processed.
Rhonda Gaines, who manages the housing stabilization program, said, "We've received over 5,000 phone calls since we started our program in March. Over 5,000. We get maybe 200 calls a day for rental assistance coming from people who've never applied for assistance. They've never applied for unemployment, they've never applied for anything. And they need help."
Griffin said that for such help, a small piece of gratitude is the least he can do.

Obese people may have a high risk of being infected with COVID-19
Severe obesity is a major risk factor for complications with COVID-19, so physicians around the world are paying close attention to such patients during a pandemic. U.S. researchers have found that being overweight can also increase the risk of coronavirus infection.
In a new study, researchers at the University of Miami evaluated the effect of obesity on the production of IgG antibodies against SARS-CoV-2. The authors measured the level of antibodies in patients with COVID-19 and people from the control group, which included uninfected participants.
The study authors found that in infected people, the level of antibodies against coronavirus was negatively associated with body mass index (BMI). That is, in obese people this level was lower than in those whose weight was normal.
