The escalating health crisis was overshadowed this week by a riot that rocked Capitol Hill, with a pro-Trump mob swarming the U.S. Capitol, resulting in clashes with police and several deaths. The riot forced lawmakers to evacuate and delayed congressional certification of the Electoral College results.
