Per The CDC, “COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) is a disease caused by a virus named SARS-CoV-2. It can be very contagious and spreads quickly. COVID-19 most often causes respiratory symptoms that can feel much like a cold, the flu, or pneumonia. COVID-19 may attack more than your lungs and respiratory system. Other parts of your body may also be affected by the disease. Most people with COVID-19 have mild symptoms, but some people become severely ill.”

The CDC defines RSV as “ a common respiratory virus that usually causes mild, cold-like symptoms. Infants and older adults are more likely to develop severe RSV and need hospitalization. CDC recommends immunizations to protect infants, some young children, and older adults.”


“Wake Up, Dead Man” is the third movie in the “Knives Out” series. The first movie “Knives Out” came out in 2019, followed by “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.” A preview of the new movie is linked down below.
