At around 1 p.m. on the 6th, members of Congress challenged the results of the swing state election.

The global epidemic heats up, Hebei offers a reward of 500 yuan
Let’s look at the CCP virus epidemic. On January 8, 45 new confirmed cases were confirmed in Hong Kong, 42 of which were local cases, of which 22 were of unknown origin, indicating that there is still a lot of invisible transmission.
The CCP virus epidemic continues to spread around the world. The number of deaths in a single day in the United States exceeded 4,000 for the first time. Bhutan in the Himalayas also reported its first death.
Recently, there have been multiple variants of the Chinese Communist Party virus, which have a stronger transmission ability. It is worrying that the virus mutation will reduce the effectiveness of existing vaccines and treatment methods. However, there is good news recently. Studies have found that Pfizer vaccine is effective against two variant viruses. The researchers said that the future will continue to monitor changes in the virus to ensure the protection of the vaccine.
Chinese New Year is approaching, and many provinces and cities on the mainland have proposed that during the New Year, “not return home if necessary”, and celebrate the new year on the spot.
Beijing’s epidemic control is particularly strict. The second generation of the Red Army in the Beijing military compound told The Epoch Times that although there were no confirmed cases in her military compound, access was strictly restricted. The worker aunt hired by her family applied for a visit to the hometown last month because her relatives were sick, but she has not yet been approved.
The Hebei Province surrounding Beijing was severely affected, and the province entered a wartime state. Nangong City announced the closure of the city. On January 8, the authorities of Nangong City issued a notice to encourage people to report people who had not undergone nucleic acid testing, and offered a reward of 500 yuan, which caused heated discussions among netizens. Some netizens believe that epidemic prevention is a priority, “I want to report even if I don’t pay.” However, many netizens are disgusted with the authorities’ encouragement to report, believing that this is “people fighting against the people”. The epidemic has made people emotionally fragile, and inciting reports is more like a resumption of the Cultural Revolution.
