Some representatives now consider that lockdown a superspreader event, an instance in which an infected person passes the coronavirus to a disproportionate number of others. That situation prompted "a COVID superspreader event," she said — a circumstance in which one person infects a disproportionately large number of others. A superspreader event, then, refers to any instance in which an infected person passes the virus to more people than that average. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, called the ceremony a superspreader event. Jayapal told The Cut that Republican lawmakers "still refused to take the bare minimum COVID-19 precaution and simply wear a damn mask in a crowded room during a pandemic — creating a superspreader event on top of a domestic terrorist attack."

"The president bears responsibility for Wednesday's attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding," McCarthy said on the House floor before the impeachment vote.
