Our thanks Matt for that and let's now go straight to Cano whitworth who remains outside the hospital where woods is being treated at a kid play a byte from one of the officials saying just how close is came to being an outright tragedy yeah. While living the interior than captain of the vehicle is more or less intact defining was totally destroying the bolivars everything was destroyed airbags deployed all of them. And however thankfully it and interior was more or less intact which kind of gave him. The cushion to survive what's up otherwise would have been fatal crash and who. And police also went on to say that seat belt probably saved his life here is official on the scene to describe the moments after he first encountered an injured Tiger Woods trick press without officer had to say. Yeah. Right could you imagine being. First responding officer basic ducky Gonzales is the first to arrive on scene he finds Tiger Woods still in the driver's seat. Strapped in his seat belt is on its at Tiger Woods. Identified himself that he immediately knew he was dealing Hui was dealing with here. With all its contents he was lucid and that's why -- Gonzales is able to wait for the fire department to comes. And extricate tiger. Out of that car they had to sort of pop off the windshield to get an out of the car and Lindsay he said. I once they got about the pardon does not able to stand on his own Carroll works. And that he was lucky to be a lie. We get Lindsay so first of all media tries swarms here at this hospital. This Andy Hargreaves Healy medical center. This is a trauma center at its lessons miles away from the accident scene and what officials are calling us. Isn't as Tiger Woods was actually sustainable they were able to bring him here. This trauma center. That he receives her theory is thought you've bought bolt a leg an exit at big as the best hospital for him to be apps you may not have been close its. But in fact it was the bats in private financing. He was stable. This is where they were able to break up. Making sure he tries to get the best possible treatment chino whitworth our thanks to you coach and two more now let's turn to USA today national sports columnist and ABC news contributor Christine brandished Christina Carter was obviously a towering shake your not only in the world of golf but in American culture really overall how a sports world reacting to this accident. Lindsey it is. All the headlines it is everything it any thought united are right now and they sense because it is much more than just golfer used up part of our culture iconic member of our culture and news transcending sports shirt black listed thirty years now it is most people started to hear about tiger or at first base that Tiger Woods tighter she and obviously he has legend. Worse and has made news in the eyes have been so why not let have been buried well tiger over the years as he has. And and injury so many candidates and so I think. This is kind of story that you shutter of course because it. At 25 years of course he's human being pinched and you you hope he's okay or secret that the dad and son and and but you also understand assassination. Because this is a man blue chips coming back and that street masters in nineteen. Dirty you lions seventeen. Shot and inability to walk a straight line in a sobriety test. He just keeps coming back and coming back and I think those are the kinds of things that. That made him a riveting. You're you're an art culture and obviously now someone who are. On everything's okay or. In riveting to be sure and you touched on this in tiger of course is Jason challenges in the past decade as personal indiscretions that ended his marriage a 2017. Do you virus caused by his use of pain and sleeping pills and a string of injuries that nearly took him all children golf course entirely yet amazingly rich he came back to win the 2019. Masters tell tigers couch and his recovery in recent years and what if he is still able to play he would contend with as as a 45 year old still trying to compete. Somebody is a body board that he. Is body's use muscle that match I might everybody has seventy or at least here in terms all the injury surgery after surgery there. Surgery. A knee problems and broken leg. Beckett you let me US open so he's gone through the end I think this one obviously. Is it better. It's yeah. And it both of his legs Richard Hurd and media press conference. Obviously he didn't want it to human hospital. Concern there it is possible leg injury and surgery. Or any. Concern or an apple. And now get out. Changes yes he's an athlete and he. Mentioned. But he is also a human being and right now it's human being tiger Lawrence editor human man not this super human golf herb. That people I think are most concerned about and that's why this story will see in the news broke out fifty cents and well known name and up and there are people born. Thirty years old now who don't remember I'm money aren't aren't tigre words used an art our culture that one. We had dominated headlines and good and bad performers such all along about to actually just a little while ago we showed some video of him hugging his son eleven year old and Charlie each and that father son GMC championship also in Orlando we saw inch perhaps most recently as a proud father encouraging his lunch that his family including his relationship with his own father actually is so much at the center of his time in the national spotlight which does that impact how we -- Tiger Woods today. Softer gentler tiger. You know he got its revenge it is a machine. That we saw two years I sit as a compliment. Even though the machine is it's is not this human. Tiger was almost super human and was doing things we never believe you eat lunch and with so dominating and an essential for worst. That was hardship and also on a one. Time you to get in and out of an -- that tiger. Now is the tigris changed and he is a much a person who thinks Sean B and a career seemed a couple times. And I think he's under melody and become much more debt and his daughter son so both they are that meant that when he nineteen masters of lives and when you think there are some question when they major sports so that's tiger we're talking about now. Or human error and it sure tiger. And that's obviously the persons in trouble tonight. Christine Brennan are staying next year and turning now to the rest of tonight's news including some promising news on vaccines front executives of the major drug companies tell congress shtick could not vaccines for 130 million Americans by the end of next month but the pressure is on to beat the variants that are spreading which like California Barry at news studies determining just how much more contagious it might be she is a pilgrim has the latest on the. Tonight vaccine makers vowing to get doses out faster to meet that promised timeline enough shots for all US adults by the end of July. Pfizer doubling the pace of production cutting manufacturing time from 110 days to an average of sixty. We anticipate that I'll get up to thirteen million doses a week by the end Marcia McDermott expecting to double its current shipments by April and are targeting delivery of the second hundred million dollars more in. By the end but medic and a third hundred million doses by the end of July a full two months ahead of schedule. And now a third company Johnson & Johnson releasing. Saying it can deliver enough of its one dose vaccine to immunize twenty million Americans by the end of march. Just about half of what they were contracted to deliver by then. Johnson and Johnson's vaccine could be authorized as early as lead Friday. We're prepared to ship immediately and art emergency use authorization. I'm nearly four million dollars or. Welcome news after winter storms caused vaccine shipping delays and shortages this as two new studies found the California bury it appears to be more contagious. The more research needs to be done. These results are are quite concerning because it it suggests that bush we have identified the emergence have been Newbury and data spreading very rapidly in California and also. Better appears to be more infection. Meanwhile more Covert restrictions easing in some states in New York sports arena is reopening for the first time in nearly a year at 10% capacity. Madison Square Garden will welcome 2000 fans Barclays allowing 300 tonight. To attend a game fans need a recent negative Kobe PCR test rapid tests will be available at the arena masks and social distancing will be required. You can see this seat that we've designated as socially distance seeing pods groups either to report. Eve our thanks to you I'm joined now by doctor Karen Webb the senior advisor on the White House cub in nineteen rests on steam from the university of Virginia school of medicine and thank you so much for joining us tonight doctor. So more than 44 million people have received at least one dose of the code of vaccines and foreign executives from Pfizer in Derrick testified today that their contract to produce enough doses church 300 million Americans by the end of July with an additional 100 million from Johnson and John Lynch if they received FDA emergency authorization each of the big challenge of course remains distribution. What do you say right now as the greatest hurdles to getting those doses out to Americans as quickly as possible and look at improve this process. Well there are a couple of things I think person inform us in making sure it. We have really good channeled through sixth. Take not only do that there was this from the manufacturers. Also get them from the State's into the arms of the folks era are sit high and so. Making sure that we're we're always getting this vaccine doses of the blaze and any good permanent serial current debt that's kind of our you're. You automation that happening. But I I think it's proceeding on schedule listing as as he said we're slow ramp up into this is every week you know since. Came into into the White House Ria Cortesio Wear out by certain percent so light where. Where things are going terms of the trajectory and we should be priestess to get those doses to the three million people on and current president port. You sound rather optimistic but certainly anyone who's tried to sign up for a vaccine or how to relative to do so has faced the challenges actual the current system should the Biden administration be doing more to try to streamline the distribution and sign up process on the federal level that it's not so she's healed from city to city and state testing. Well in India want to Elena timber that that optimism because anything to choose the matter is we have. To work hard to stick us on exactly needs to be done in this state but yeah. A little bit differently. I think there is lot of coordination from the federal state putting the seats certainly been ministering I didn't vaccine also we have these federal site reusing well we're complementing the process in the state with these New York federal architects we set up our large community vaccination centers. Our regional pharmacy programs our health center's programs or trying to make sure there are more and more news vaccination. And what I always mindful folks. The huge matter is we are currently in that moment when we're predicting a number doses that are available. We'll get to a point where we have a lot more doses are available yet to make sure you shall cherish to accommodate gotten I think we're I think we're heading that direction so I think that owns yes it is still a lot of people I think the hope is it. You know in the next weeks and months we should have a dynamic where everybody who's over sixty who has certainly outlawed in any beyond that we'll get we'll get to the we're everywhere and what. And if so equity issues related to tackle in October of nineteen and we've certainly seen headlines in recent weeks and despite efforts minority groups are still not being vaccinated each at the same rates as white Americans want to just one of those headlines from the Wall Street Journal yesterday on the situation California and the headline is California is losing its campaign to an accident racial minorities equitably each and the article notes at black and Latino Californians collectively account for 59% of the saints reported to in nineteen infections but make up 19%. Of those who have been vaccinated in contrast. White residents account for 20% of infections and 33%. Of Maxine principi and first just tell us what you're seeing from your position on how prevalent each of these types of disparities are when it comes to equitable vaccine distribution and why these gaps still persists. We're seeing these guests must place old country. They're one of the first things we call cooers is good data in terms of what the vaccination process looks like in states and localities. All over the country in months we have that in a nation we can see exactly what does it look like Google where they don't all these communities. We need to diagnose problems that rule one of the challenges that we're happy. And certainly we talk about vaccine has since he's become a common trees across the country but it really boils down to a couple of different dynamics who won his competence in the vaccine. You know its safety and efficacy. The institutions that are distributing it and then ultimately the reasons why that you know government officials are telling you take the company he's. And then there's the convenient piece that's actually. Access two places to get back needed and automation have. A vote of confidence they have. Access to the vaccines it was the dynamics that were constantly contending it my fingers if you are vexing hesitant communities that we see in. A level organizational hesitancy in terms of understanding what has begun to get out there and get those. Those vexing to the communities that have been hardest hit highest risk. Who work on all fronts to make sure you know we now you know. Wrestling what. Most important steps of the Biden administration contained to help close scabs and ending she'll that enough is being done at the federal level. But there's always more than can be done I think importance to us or taking is that we really used equity in every secular vaccine. And so you look at all the federal vaccination programs that exist are communion vaccinations senators. These are out equity I didn't really listeners are our regional arms he sings church seems true as our our community health centers were making sure that aren't using equity and making sure those it was doses are going to the community and hardest hit. Every. Way I'm one of the most important things is feedback from the communities that have been the hardest hit I think he'd be a mistake charter designed this and execute our constant amount of feedback I directional input. You know into what this program is gonna look like consumer continuing to see battery during a series of stakeholder round tables this we can actually engaging with the latter day. Immigrant reiterated continued to get new and better information to make sure reaching the community. They can't have been the hardest hit their highest risk and I and that's our that's our clip that's our promise to the American people want to make sure this.

Warning right wing extremists we're heading to Washington preparing to fight a quote war. And officials testified saying that information was sent any email. Or email they did not see. I think if we have inspiration that's coming in the day before a major event. That that has that level of specificity. That eighty get a little more attention than Peter just been handled either through an email. Or electronic. Foreman the failure to plan for the mob left capitol police officers like captain Carnie sue Mendoza.

African Americans with how women without lesbians gays and bisexuals. But we're not quite there yet we're still at a place where a new administration. Could flip assuaged.
