Summary

The extension is trying to detect articles and posts related to COVID-19 and hide them. We do think that people all over the world are over stressed. And mass media hysteria adds even more stress to our life. We don't think that coronavirus is not a problem today. We just want to protect emotional people from unnecessary level of stress.

Good work, makes reading a news website a lot less painful. I know Covid exists, don't need to know about it every minute. Would have given 5 stars if it was being updated to support mentions of variant names too, for example "Delta variant" and "Omicron"

It was funny testing on the dumpster fire that is MSN; slowly watching the whole site eventually turn into, "CENSORED" as their elements keeps changing. I couldn't figure out how to do this in ublock for all sites, but your extension kinda did. Good job.
