Good morning I'm Diana stayed up thanks for streaming. In today's update is CDC panel is set to meet today to discuss cool news the first to get a cup in nineteen backseat. Advisor is preparing to rush out its first shot his hospitalizations. Near 100000. Across the country. And as New York governor Andrew Cuomo all issues a new warning. Also ahead. Trump is blasting the Republican governors of Arizona and Georgia for not helping him. Overturn the election results in their states yeah. All six states the president contested have not certified Joseph Biden as the winner and you hear why some say the president's baseless conspiracy theories about fraud. Could cost his party control in the senate. And the light saving rescue at sea a man was found clinging to his capsized boat nearly a hundred miles off the coast of Florida. And what he's saying now about the moment he knew help was on the way. With only enough medicine for about twenty million people expected by the end of this year. Authorities are having to prioritize. Already health officials have said that seniors with underlying health conditions. And doctors who treat Covert patient should be put. At the front of the line will ultimately be up to state and local officials to choose where the doses go first earlier this morning George spoke to former CDC director Tom Frieden about how they will choose. Who gets the first doses take. Since side. This prior organization process citing who's gonna get the vaccine and win. You've got about twenty million doses but you have 87 million essential workers 53 million over the age of 65 millions more with chronic conditions how do you decide to. Fundamentally you look at three things George one is how much good you gonna do how many lives you miss a second it is. What's fair what's the fair way to do it and the third is how can we do this is openly transparently so that there are no back room deals it's clear what's happening. But in the meanwhile drugmaker Pfizer is moving supplemental shipments from production in Belgium. To this storage facility in Kalamazoo Michigan. So that the minute the FDA says it's okay for emergency use. Those first shots will be ready to rush across the country for millions are safe and effective vaccine can't come soon enough there are nearly a 100000 Americans currently hospitalized with cope at 99 new record. And the infection rates doubled from October to November. Whatever is decided here today is again just a recommendation it is up to state and local officials to. Decide whether to follow these recommendations and exactly where these doses should be headed to die and. Tarantino's since I'm in Atlanta Forrest thanks Steve. And it's cases surge here in the US the World Health Organization reports global cases of the buyers are down for the first time since September cash at declined comes after several countries includes new restrictions from her accused. To lock downs particularly in Europe Maggie rulings in London with more Maggie good morning. They then yeah looks like finally we may have a little bit of good news is Susan those strict lock downs have been seeing across Europe are working today is our last day of the month long locked out we've had here in England and the late summer show. 30% decrease in the number of cases to and this is exactly the way that we want to see those numbers going especially as we head into the holidays but a push McChrystal warned that we are nowhere near being out of the woods yet and and that's what really trying to kind of locked down slowly so there are still going to be various restrictions in place across England across the UK here in Linden households will still not to be able to socialize or mixed indoors and now the idea behind all of these continued restrictions. It's Christmas and the hope that it fully cracked down now fast in early that the movie we'll get some relief for the holidays and a de and the other big release everyone is looking towards is that vaccine also like the may have a bit of good news there because the UK have now just steps away from actually do you think people of vaccine. Right now officials are in an emergency approval process and they're reviewing the data so while it's impossible to know exactly how long that whole process is going to take what we do know is that there is a massive effort under way right now to prepare for its rollout of losing vaccination centers that are being set up a volunteers are being trained to administer the vaccine. Everything is being put into motion so that this second approval is granted the whole country. Going to be ready to go. Then turn right Maggie really good to see things shifting in the right direction their tanks nanny and president elect Joseph Biden continues to move or with the transition announcing she staffing picks and receiving his first presidential daily briefing should. This is president trumps attempts to overturn election results have failed in every state G and his campaign have contested.

Including in the Oval Office in Georgia where Biden's victory was finalized over a week ago trump is still attacking Republican officials as a state gears up for two runoff races that will determine control of the senate is now growing concern among Republicans that drugs baseless unproven conspiracy theories. Could cost them votes the chair of the RNC wrote remic Daniel asked by one Republican voter why they should even bothered to vote. If the president says the whole system is rigged. Hemmer. Couldn't arm. It's not just I get this is key you yeah yeah it's not decided to. Republican officials in Georgia are still counting on the president dealt drive turnout in these special senate runoff races drug is expected to rally his supporters there this weekend while Joseph Biden he's still forging ahead today officially unveiling in person his history making economic team this is all part of Biden's attempt to make good on his promise to diversify the White House got income inequality.
