Jimmie Johnson: NEW — THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS INVESTIGATING THE POSTMASTER GENERAL.

I’M JIMMIE JOHNSON WITH STRAIGHT ARROW NEWS — KICKING OF TEAM COVERAGE OF WHAT WE’RE TRACKING TODAY.

DEJOY HAS BEEN A CONTROVERSIAL FIGURE SINCE TAKING OVER THE POSTAL SERVICE LAST SUMMER.
MOST NOTABLY — FOR POLICY CHANGES THAT DELAYED MAIL BEFORE THE 20-20 ELECTION.

RECENT CONTROVERSY SURROUNDING THE POSTAL SERVICE MAY HAVE YOU WONDERING — DO WE EVEN NEED IT?
IAN TONER HELPS YOU MAKE THAT DECISION FOR YOURSELF IN HIS STORY.

Shannon Longworth: NEW DETAILS ON A STORY WE’VE BEEN FOLLOWING.
WE NOW KNOW HOW THE U-S IS PLANNING ON DIVVYING OUT SOME THE 80 MILLION VACCINE DOSES IT PROMISED TO THE REST OF THE WORLD BY THE END OF THE MONTH.
I’M SHANNON LONGWORTH WITH STRAIGHT ARROW NEWS.

OUT OF THE FIRST 25 MILLION DOSES — ABOUT 19 WILL GO TO THE U-N-BACKED GLOBAL VACCINE SHARING PROGRAM CALLED COVAX.
THE OTHER 6 WILL BE GIVEN OUT FROM THE U-S DIRECTLY TO ALLIES AND PARTNERS.

Jake Sullivan // National Security Advisor: “First, our goal in sharing our vaccines is in service of ending the pandemic globally. Our overarching aim is to get as many safe and effective vaccines to as many people as fast as possible. It’s as simple as that. We want to save lives and thwart variants that place all of us at risk.”
Shannon Longworth: THE PLAN COMES AS GLOBAL INEQUITIES IN VACCINE SUPPLY HAVE BECOME MORE GLARING.
DOZENS OF COUNTRIES HAVE REQUESTED DOSES FROM THE UNITED STATES.
BUT TO DATE — ONLY MEXICO AND CANADA HAVE RECEIVED A COMBINED 4-POINT-5 MILLION DOSES.

AS WE JUST HEARD — THE GOAL IS ERADICATION.
BUT CAN THAT HAPPEN?
JIMMIE JOHNSON ANSWERS THAT QUESTION IN HIS “LET ME EXPLAIN” STORY.
