The Delta variant gives you a sore throat, a runny nose, a cough, and from there it goes to the lungs and kills people. So it is important to know how to distinguish one disease from another and, more important is to be protected against both diseases, “said Goris located at 435 Fort Washington Ave, New York, NY 10033.
