CARL AZUZ, CNN 10 ANCHOR: Creative expression in the time of coronavirus. That's where we start our week here on CNN 10. I'm Carl Azuz. Here's a quick snapshot of where things stand with the pandemic. More than 4 million people worldwide have tested positive for COVID-19. Almost 300,000 had died from the disease when we put this show together.

The nation with the most positive tests is the United States which has seen more than 1 million and 300 thousand cases. Most people who catch this virus do recover but it is deadlier than the flu. That's why some health officials have encouraged those who are celebrating Mother's Day yesterday to continue avoiding groups of more than 10 people and to keep their physical distance from mom avoiding hugs and kisses.

In California, health officials say a coronavirus patient who is coughing at a party recently spread the disease to more than five other people. The patient and at least some of the other guests were not wearing masks or keeping distance from each other. As the danger remains, so does the economic damage from the shutdowns.

Friday's job reports from the U.S. government found that 20.5 million jobs were cut in April and that the unemployment rate, the percentage of American workers without a job, hit 14.7 percent. Neither of those numbers was as bad as many economists expected but the unemployment rate is the highest it's been since the Great Depression.

The White House expects it to get worse next month before bouncing back later this year. On the home front there's some people across the globe who are staying creative and sharing their work without leaving the house.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Hi.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Hi.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Hello everyone.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: My name is Ellen.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (UNTRANSLATED)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: My name is Olivia Kay (ph).

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: My name is Wilfred Wood (ph) and I'm a sculptor. A little tour around my studio. Paint, varnish, all sorts of stuff.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (UNTRANSLATED)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This particular piece tries to depict the anxiety that goes on in my mind here in this uncertain period.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: For me one of the ways I've dealt with being in isolation is by looking out the window a lot. I always am confident to hear other people and see other people. It gives me a sense that I'm not alone.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Through this piece I would like to highlight the good in our society that's helping us go through this together.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It helps you relax. It helps you express how you're feeling.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It will really help feeling that you've achieved something.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I've heard things like, I can't draw. I can't sing. I don't have any talent as if there's a right or wrong way to be creative.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I personally believe that every human being is creative.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I think it's important to just start with something you think you'd enjoy and to enjoy the active making as opposed to expecting some kind of result out of it.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It's always the non-artists who come out with the most interesting things because they're not bunged up with preconceived ideas of what art should be or what they feel they should be doing.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Pretty witty does not necessarily have that many first sales. It can be through anything. I can be through how you cook.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Cooking has been my salvation. (inaudible)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It can be through how you dress, how you piece your outfit together. It could be through how you arrange your house.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Don't think about it. Don't read books. Don't read tutorials, any of that. Get a pencil, get a bit of paper and get on with it.

AZUZ: 10 Second Trivia. Where would you find the foggiest place on Earth? San Francisco, California; Grand Banks, Newfoundland, Canada; Cape Disappointment, Washington or Atacama Desert, Chile. Maybe you had the foggiest idea that it's Grand Banks, Newfoundland where two ocean currents meet.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Have you ever walked through a cloud? Maybe driven through a cloud? I bet many of you have and some of you may not have even noticed. Fog is actually a cloud. It's a cloud on the ground.

And I'm going to show you how to make one. All you have to do is take a jar of very hot water. Now this is going to represent the warm temperatures near the surface. After a couple of minutes, pour out most of that water leave a little bit in it and then take a strainer with some ice cubes.

This is going to represent the cool air mixing in. Set that right on top of that jar and watch what happens. Over time, as the difference in temperatures, that warm moist air near the surface and that cooler air on top mix together. It's going to create your fog. It even gets a little bit denser as time goes on and that's exactly what happens in real life.

AZUZ: It's hard to believe that lobster was once a throw away food. That piles of these crustaceans would wash up on eastern American shores and no one really wanted to eat them. That changed starting in the 1880s' and now demand is so high that you can make a living both fishing for lobster and getting visitors to Maine small scale tourism doing that.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It's a little bit windy today out of the northeast. So we're going to tuck into a couple of spots where we should have some calm water to pull our traps. In a normal working day, a commercial lobsterer might try to pull in a full day as many as 400 traps in a day. So if you came in with 300 or 400 lobsters that would be a decent catch. In the summer, in the fall, this time of year on a nice day it's perfect.

In the winter and the spring when it's cold. Sometimes it's snowing. Those are the challenging days. So there's the buoy. Now the rope goes around the wench and that's controlled by this lever right here and that's going to hoist the traps up to the boat. All right. We've got some lobsters in the first trap and a couple of crabs.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Getting your finger caught in a lobster claw is like getting your finger caught in a locked car door. They do not release.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: When I was a kid growing up, my next door neighbor was a lobster fisherman so I started working for him as a summer job when I was 14. And I worked summers through high school and then after high school I started lobstering year around.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I'm a transplant. I came here for college and then I never left. I love Maine and Tom (ph) has always wanted me on the boat. It never, like, worked out and around eight summers ago I said, OK. I'm ready. My mother-in-law's going to watch the kids and I get to play on the boat all day.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We started doing tours in the mid '90s when the state started putting restrictions on how many traps you could fish.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: So now we're going to change the bait. You'll see what the seagulls want. The people that come on our boat, this is what they do.

We make them do the work. We're going to push them in. Over - - get them all lined up. We have a precise way of doing it.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: There's goes the first one. One, two, three, push. Thank you (inaudible).

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You're welcome. I did it.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Two summers ago, my record, I lobstered 21 days in a row. Yes. So - - and I wasn't even sick of it. What's really fun for us is to meet different people from all over the country and all over the world and show them what we do.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Everyday is great out here. We meet people from all over. We have people from like age two to 90, people in wheelchairs. I think when we get them out here at first they said I just want to go on the ride. I'm not going to do anything but I always - - don't I - - I always get them to something. We always have fun. We always get them involved.

AZUZ: Something you may want in your yard, a bird bath. Something you don't want in your yard, a bear bath. Fortunately this isn't a yard. It's a habitat at the Oregon Zoo and splish splash the bear's taking a bath. He even got a toy to keep him entertained while he's soaking. "Takota" (ph) is the name or this black bear who's been at the zoo since 2010.

If you didn't think they could "bare" bath time, well seeing is "bearlieving". And that's an "Earth" sign that he's enjoying himself because when you're on the hunt for refreshment, it's always fun "Takota" the pool. I could carry on like this all day. But then I'd miss the chance to greet the Vikings of Tennessee High School. It's in Bristol, Tennessee. Thank you for commenting at YouTube.com/cnn10. I'm Carl Azuz.
