he will not be there late show For the second day in a row thanks to COVID. How can this be? Why is the epidemic not over? Despite what I’ve heard, we’re still in the middle of this thing and are going through another bleak phase this week: One million COVID deaths in America And Six million worldwide. And that’s just the deaths that have been reported.

A good reminder of how dangerous COVID-19 is, celebrities are still getting infected. he was there Outbreak at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last week.

Aprons From Nothing: It’s never too late to get vaccinated and a booster so your chances of catching a minor condition like them are even higher. But even minor cases can be very severe and can lead to a prolonged COVID, so, yes, masking in crowds probably wouldn’t be a bad idea either.

Another reminder you can already see: Late Show with Stephen Colbert On pause because Colbert’s test is positive again. “Stephen has symptoms consistent with recurring COVID,” Late Show Posted a twitter account yesterday. “Out of an abundance of caution for his staff, guests and fans, he will be in isolation for a few additional days. As a result, late show No new episodes will be recorded until further notice.

Colbert has been struggling with COVID for the past few weeks. for every The Hollywood ReporterHe tested positive on April 21. “Yes! I tested positive for Covid, but basically I feel grateful to be cleansed and strengthened,” Colbert tweeted. “Thanks for well wishes.

We wish Colbert and his late night comrades a speedy recovery. Everyone else, stay safe.
