Live from NPR news, I'm Jack Speer.


President-elect Joe Biden has gotten his first Covid-19 vaccine dose and like other parliament political figures, he did so on camera. As NPR'sTamara Keith explains, he's part of the efforts to build a public confidence on the vaccines. With camera rolling, Biden rolled up his left shirt sleeve,"I'm ready.", and, got his injection. As president-elect getting vaccinated is important for continuity of government, but Biden said he also wanted to send the message. "I'm doing this to demonstrate that people should be prepared when it's available to take the vaccine. There's nothing to worry about." Biden said that Trump administration deserved some credit for getting vaccines out quickly through its Operation Warp Speed. But he added, this is just the start, and he urged Americans to wear masks, socially distinct, and avoid travel if they can. Tamara Keith, NPR news.


More than 40 countries have now announced travel bans targetting the UK after an outbreak in England of a coronavirus variant scientists think is much more infectious.

The France's banning trucks across English Channel at the border of Dover, Johnson told Britain there's no risk of food shortage, and that he has spoken to French President Emmanuel Macron about opening up the border as soon as possible. Johnson also emphasized the bans targetting truck drivers holding free and not shifting containers. "We believe the risk of transmission by a solitary driver sitting alone in the cab... are really very low." In announcing the risk of variant Saturday and lockdown in the southeast England, Johnson seemed not to anticipate how quickly and intensively other countries would react. Frank Langfitt, NPR news, London.


Attorney General William Barr has weighed on the major hack of US government agencies, as NPR's Ryan Lucas reports, Barr says Russia appears to be behind the breach. The US government is still accessing the extent of the hack that first came to *** just over a week ago. Experts say it's pretentiously unprecedented in scope. The Trump administration has not formally attributed the hack at this point, while the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said over the weekend that it was pretty clearly the Russians. Speaking at a news conference, Barr says he agrees. "It's certainly, appears to be the Russians but I'm not going to discuss it beyond that." While Barr and Pompeo have both pointed the finger at Moscow, President Trump has refused to do so. Instead, Trump has sought to minimize the celebrity of the hack and has suggested China might have been behind it. Ryan Lucas, NPR news, Washington.
