They had flocked to Washington to protect Joe Biden's inauguration.

As it now turns out, numerous National Guardsmen have been infected with the corona virus.

  • 25,000 National Guardsmen were ordered to change power to Washington.

  • Apparently, numerous soldiers have now been

    infected

    with the

    corona

    virus.

  • First Lady Dr.

    Jill Biden

    tries to

    calm things down

    after a parking garage incident.

Washington, DC - Washington was preparing for the January 20th change of power.

The Capitol turned into a field camp.

National

guards patrolling were seen in photos

.

They lay in the corridors, slept close together in crowds on the marble floor and guarded the place that had previously been the target of a riot.

After the

storming of the US Capitol on January 6th

, 25,000 National Guards were appointed to secure the

inauguration of the 46th US President Joe Biden

ordered.

As it now turns out, this could have turned into a

super-spreader event

.

Because numerous members of the National Guard have apparently been

infected with the corona virus.

"They packed us up like sardines," reports a national

guard from

the news platform

Politico

.

Hundreds of them have now

tested positive for the virus

or are in quarantine in nearby hotel facilities, three sources within the Guard report to the newspaper.

Apparently there had already been

problems with corona tests beforehand

.

In some cases, soldiers would have had to take care of access to corona tests themselves.

Others have been pressured

to end

their

quarantine early

and report for duty.

A member of the National Guard anonymously reported to

Politico

that most corona cases were asymptomatic and apparently came from the troops' home locations.

The management of the guard has so far refused to officially announce the number of positive corona cases.

National Guard: Coronavirus infected inside - 25,000 were in Washington for Biden's inauguration

Now there is great fear that the operation in Washington could have tragic consequences.

And even develop into a

super spreader event

.

"Ultimately, we have to make sure that they don't spend their extended rest time on campus but in hotel rooms," said Connecticuts Democratic Senator Chris Murphy.

The extent of the problem was further underscored when it became known that

soldiers had to

wait

inside

a government building

car park for their break

.

In the narrowest space.

This decision now causes horror.

Roy Blunt, the Missouri Senator, has already described the incident as a

"Covid-19 threat".

And Florida Governor Ron DeSantis immediately ordered his troops back to the state.

"They are soldiers, they are

not Nancy Pelosi's servants," he

said

angrily

.

The order to spend the break in the parking garage is currently being investigated.

Apparently, however, a Capitol police officer had given this order without being authorized to do so.

Accordingly, the Congress did not know anything about it, as several senators emphasized.

Corona outbreak at the National Guard: Hundreds of soldiers infected - Dr.

Jill Biden visits troops

First Lady Dr.

Jill Biden

visited the troops on Friday after criticizing the soldiers' accommodation.

And brought chocolate cookies with it.

However, there is currently great dissatisfaction in social networks.

"She had to do that after what her husband did to you," reads an Instagram comment.

"I guess that was before they were kicked out of the Capitol and told to sleep in a parking garage," another.

"From the bottom of my heart, thank you to the National Guard for their continued commitment to protect our nation," wrote

Dr.

Jill Biden

on her Twitter account "Flotus".

An attached photo shows how the

first lady

puts her right hand on her heart, in the background the soldiers: inside.

There are currently controversial reactions to this post.

While some of the Bidens chalked up the parking garage incident, others defended the couple by pointing out that they knew nothing about it.

The founder of the

Democratic Coalition

, whose self-

imposed

task is

to hold

Donald Trump *

accountable, tweeted: “The National Guard slept in a parking garage because Donald Trump instigated a terrorist attack on the Capitol.

If you are angry, vote to judge him. "

The troops have a special meaning for the Biden family.

The son

Joe Bidens *

, Beau,

who died in 2015

, was a member of the National Guard.
