The last week of April brings with it new content on streaming platform Netflix, such as Mindy Kaling’s teen comedy Never Have I Ever and Jacqueline Fernandez’s Mrs Serial Killer that revolves around a murder mystery. Documentary Coronavirus, Explained is another anticipated arrival that attempts to shed insight into the various ways the world is dealing with the pandemic.
