North American Observation丨Congressmen diagnosed with new crown pneumonia spoke without wearing masks
On October 12, local time, the Judiciary Committee of the U.S. Congressional Senate began four consecutive days of confirmation hearings on the candidate of the Supreme Court Justice Barrett. As it concerns the future of the United States, this hearing is particularly interesting.
However, to the public's surprise, in addition to the "business" nominated by the justices, the topic of epidemic prevention has become one of the focuses of the hearing. After the first day of the hearing, many mainstream media in the United States focused on reporting on the "wonderful things" at the hearing-Republican Senator Mike Lee, who was just diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia, not only attended the hearing casually, but also refused to wear a mask when speaking. .
Once the incident was reported, public opinion was in an uproar. Not only does it reflect the indifference of high-ranking congressmen’s awareness of epidemic prevention and the poor management of epidemic prevention in Congress, but it also exposes the root cause of large-scale infections at the top of the U.S. government, reflecting the party’s interests and a large number of officials even deliberately neglecting epidemic prevention. As a result of the measures, the epidemic situation did not improve for a long time, and even rebounded.

Earlier, Mike Lee had participated in the nomination ceremony of the justices held in the Rose Garden of the White House on September 26, and only a few days later, on October 2 he announced that he tested positive for the new crown virus. Also diagnosed on the same day were US President Trump, First Lady Melania, and another Republican Senator Tom Tiris.
