Coronavirus The US has now recorded more than 25 million coronavirus cases, and experts say it’s time to double down on safety measures and speed up vaccine administration to keep the already unfathomable numbers from spiraling further out of control. Still, healthy young Americans may not have access to a vaccine until mid- to late summer. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said a big problem is there’s not enough information about how much vaccine is available. The CDC is also reviewing data that suggests the UK coronavirus variant could, in fact, be more deadly than the original strain. Meanwhile, Dr. Deborah Birx and Dr. Anthony Fauci are speaking out about their time working with the Trump administration on coronavirus efforts. Birx says former President Trump was presented with and used data about the virus that she had never seen. Fauci said Trump surrounded himself with people who said things that “didn’t make any scientific sense.”Mexico's president tests positive for Covid-19Mexico's president tests positive for Covid-19Mexico's president tests positive for Covid-19JUST WATCHEDMexico’s president tests positive for Covid-19ReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

White HousePresident Biden is gearing up for a week of executive actions addressing commerce, climate concerns, health care, immigration and other top-line issues. Among them, Biden is expected to repeal Trump’s ban on transgender people serving in the military as early as today. Also today, he’s due to reinstate Covid-19 travel restrictions on non-US citizens who have been in Brazil, Ireland, the UK and much of Europe. Transportation officials are already considering ways to enforce Biden’s recent mask mandate for interstate travel. Elsewhere in the new administration, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is ordering a review of the Pentagon’s sexual assault and harassment prevention programs. Biden’s administration is also facing pressure to investigate more into the recent SolarWinds hack, allegedly perpetrated by Russian entities.Romney throws cold water on Biden's $1.9T stimulus planRomney throws cold water on Biden's $1.9T stimulus planSOTU Romney on stimulus_00002416JUST WATCHEDRomney throws cold water on Biden’s $1.9T stimulus planReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Capitol riot The Justice Department has unveiled new criminal charges against alleged Capitol rioters, including a Federal Aviation Administration employee. Another rioter was charged with threatening to assassinate Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reports that in the days leading up to the Capitol riot, Trump pushed the Justice Department to directly ask the Supreme Court to invalidate Biden’s election win. The New Year’s weekend effort reportedly failed after Trump’s DOJ appointees refused to file the case. Trump’s Senate impeachment trial will start the week of February 8, a move intended to give his legal team more time to prepare.Impeachment manager: Trump 'lit the match' on Capitol attack Impeachment manager: Trump 'lit the match' on Capitol attack SOTU Dean Full_00000611JUST WATCHEDImpeachment manager: Trump ‘lit the match’ on Capitol attack ReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Brexit The UK is adjusting to its new Brexit reality, and the fishing industry is being hit especially hard, with fresh catches reportedly being left to rot as exporters cannot get them to the European Union. Some logistics firms worry that importing and exporting may not even be viable for some businesses unless a different deal is struck with the EU. Shipping has become a problem, too, and businesses have reported piles of returned packages. The UK’s economy has contracted in the first quarter, leading to real concerns about a double-dip recession amid ongoing pandemic challenges.Here's where the UK-US special relationship could go under BidenHere's where the UK-US special relationship could go under BidenHere's where the UK-US special relationship could go under BidenJUST WATCHEDHere’s where the UK-US special relationship could go under BidenReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH
