One More Result of Insurrection at the Capital 1-12-21

Pandemic and Politics

From the gallery: https://pbase.com/britestar/insurrection_at_the_capital

**********************
The 1-06-21 Story continues on 1-12-21

“Three US lawmakers have tested positive for the coronavirus after sheltering for hours with colleagues during last week's deadly assault on the Capitol. Last Wednesday they hunkered down in secure rooms, seeking refuge from an invasion of Congress in which five people died. Some Republicans were not wearing masks during the ordeal, footage suggests. Video shows several Republican lawmakers apparently refusing facemasks offered to them. Medical experts fear more lawmakers may have contracted the disease, potentially amounting to a super-spreader event at a time when coronavirus infections and deaths continue to rise in the US”. CNN

**********************
Today also marks another horrific Pandemic Milestone

According to John Hopkins University, the US has hit another all time, single day high of

OVER 4300 on Tuesday of recorded COVID deaths.

It seems like every couple of days,
another new COVID-19 record gets broken with the disease winning the battle so far.

**********************

For the record, the 4 dead in the above breaking news during the anarchy was not the complete total number of humans who died this day at the US Capitol Building. Odds are also high that more members of Congress than reported today have also been infected with COVID because of the events of January 6th.


In this case IQ is not as important as the story.
