LOS ANGELES (Associated Press) – Oprah Winfrey says she wants people to digest coronavirus news wisely during a 24-hour livestream event.

The media mogul along with 200 star-studded participants including President Bill Clinton and Julia Roberts took part in the Call to Unite event Friday evening.
