Coronavirus The US will not participate in a global effort led by the World Health Organization to develop and distribute a coronavirus vaccine. Even though the US leads the world in coronavirus cases, with more than 6 million overall, the Trump administration has been critical of the WHO and said it will not be constrained by the “corrupt” organization. More than 170 other countries are involved. Now, what will we do when a vaccine is actually approved? An independent committee has recommended a four-phase allocation plan for the US, starting with first responders and high-risk workers in health care facilities, then high-risk adults. Meanwhile, scientists are learning more about the effects of the virus, and it isn’t good: New research suggests coronavirus symptoms can last for months in some patients.Why some Russian teachers are rejecting Covid-19 vaccineWhy some Russian teachers are rejecting Covid-19 vaccineWhy some Russian teachers are rejecting Covid-19 vaccineJUST WATCHEDWhy some Russian teachers are rejecting Covid-19 vaccineReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

LA County sheriff’s deputies fatally shot 29-year-old Dijon Kizzee during a confrontation Monday afternoon in South LA. Kizzee’s family is calling for the officers involved in the shooting to be publicly named and arrested. In Portland, Oregon, where protests have been going on for 96 straight nights, Mayor Ted Wheeler has called on the community to end the “senseless violence.” The city’s demonstrations took a deadly turn this weekend when one man was shot and killed during an altercation between protesters and supporters of President Trump. And in Wisconsin, Jacob Blake’s family says his recovery is progressing but laments that national police reform is not.'I don't believe that:' Trump denies systemic racism in US'I don't believe that:' Trump denies systemic racism in US'I don't believe that:' Trump denies systemic racism in USJUST WATCHED’I don’t believe that:’ Trump denies systemic racism in USReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Election 2020Top Democrats are demanding the Director of National Intelligence resume in-person election security briefings for Congress. In a letter, House leaders pointed out that the decision to curtail briefings comes despite warnings from a top intelligence official last month that China, Russia and Iran are seeking to interfere in the US election. Meanwhile, Facebook announced it has evidence that an infamous Russian troll group that attempted to interfere in the 2016 election is trying to target Americans again through the use of fake personas and realistic computer-generated images. The tech giant looked into the activity after getting a tip from the FBI.Clapper: It's too important not to briefClapper: It's too important not to briefClapper: It's too important not to briefJUST WATCHEDClapper: It’s too important not to briefReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Clapper: It’s too important not to brief 02:254. China We’ve talked about China’s worsening relationship with the US and Australia, and now the country is focusing on India. The two powers are engaged in a decadeslong dispute over a portion of their shared border in the Himalayas, and China’s government has now accused Indian troops of illegally trespassing onto Chinese territory in the area. This could set the stage for the second major standoff along the border after a clash there in June left dozens of soldiers dead. China and India are the two biggest powers in Asia, and they both have nuclear weapons and nationalist governments. (Plus, China is looking to expand its nuclear arsenal in the coming years.) So, the latest dispute could have big consequences.Why are India and China sparring at the border? (July)Why are India and China sparring at the border?
