SARS-CoV-2 is the name of the virus, Covid-19 is the disease it causes, like HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. So yeah, it really is SARS 2.0. It's actually worse than that because it mutated in China so 70% of people have a new, improved version of SARS-CoV-2 that's more infectious.
I got the joke and chuckled when I first read it, so there was no whoosh sound in my case. It'll still likely to influence stupid people in the direction of minimizing the seriousness of it which raises r0, so I left a comment so I could feel like I was saving the world anyway. :-P
A medical friend just shared this with me. It's a test result for a patient who has developed resistance to every antibiotic shown. It's as real as real can be. This person could die as a result of the evolution you believe doesn't exist. If you would like to be the one to do the eulogy at this patient's funeral the next time she gets an infection and dies as a result of said evolutionary processes, let me know. Perhaps I can hook you two up.
Here's a note from the doctor responsible for the test:
“This goes to the lady who complains because I don't prescribe antibiotics for her child sick with the flu. To the patient who throws a tantrum because his throat hurts and wants me to leave him azithromycin.
To people who take amoxicillin for a headache.
For those who insist that for fever, the best is benzetacil, because it heals all infections and kills all "bugs".
This goes to the friend who only took half the treatment because he wanted to drink at the end of the week and because his bacteria adapt, they are adapting to all kinds of antibiotics, and all because of the blessed culture of saying "this doctor knows nothing, with antibiotics, I heal faster".
With you ladies and gentlemen, a bacteria resistant to all antibiotics..
I suggest you take a few hours to read through some of the transcripts from the Scopes trial in 1925, nearly 100 years ago, available here:
You'll likely find all your objections were raised and dealt with at that time. Your arguments are literally 100 years old. Since then, scientists have accumulated an additional 100 years of data on this matter, all of which supports the theory.
Literally every time this issue comes before a court of law, like it did yet again in Dover under the new guise "intelligent design" in yet another sleazy attempt to sneak God into the science classroom and pretend your religious ramblings have any bearing on observed physical reality, you idiots lose. In the Dover case, the most qualified scientist arguing on behalf of evolution was probably the previously mentioned Dr. Ken Miller, a Christian.
If you'd like to see what the scientists had to say nearly 100 years ago on this matter when creationists tried to argue their Biblical bullshit, you can start here on page 231 in the section entitled:

If you honestly can't recognize which side is arguing from religion, you ought to visit a neurologist and get a CAT scan. Maybe you have a brain tumor. You people make yourselves look like asses when you play the "I'm rubber, you're glue" game and call evolution a religion.
You people are to biology what flat Earthers and geocentrists are to astrophysics: A joke to be ridiculed and laughed at. You dumb f**ks have earned it.
I tried to engage you in specific arguments about specific points, starting with the chromosome fusion Ken Miller pointed to along with the Harvard Medical School video of the evolution of antibiotic resistance. All you did is point out that the bacteria didn't turn into an animal in 11 days and cry about fascism and bigotry.
One of us doesn't know what the f**k he's talking about. After having written computer simulations of this process and seen the mathematical inevitability of intergenerational changes in biology over time in the presence of mutations and other gene transfer events, I assure you I'm not the one who's ignorant on the subject.
