    Hey OBX Voice. Remember back on December 26 when the sensational headline screamed about North Carolina passing the milestone of half a million cases of the virus. I’ve been waiting for the corresponding headline that notifies the public that we have half a million people who have recovered from the virus.

    I must surely have missed it????
