Every community in the Whittier Area has now been visited by the Banshees and the Grim Reaper as East Whittier joins the rest of the Whittier Area after it lost its first resident to COVID 19 since the pandemic arrived in the Whittier Area in March of last year.
An insurrection/protest related surge in hospitalizations and COVID deaths are expected to increase stresses on an already heavily overburdened medical system. The new hospitalizations and deaths are being predicted based on the fact that no one at yesterday's protests nor the storming of the capital was wearing a mask or social distancing. Participants in yesterday's were likely spreading the SARS COV 2 virus in addition to attacking America's constitutional order. Members of Congress may have been exposed to virus upon their return to the capital for the electoral vote certification. But time will tell. This hypothesis should be proven or disproven in two weeks.
