另外58%的得票率好意思说won in a landslide,他们大概率是没见过某些国家的100%吧。嗯,想啥呢?我说的是隔壁的North Korea。

US capital police say a man was arrested in Washington DC last night, after he was found with a handgun and more than 500 rounds of ammunition in his vehicle. As NPR's Dave Mistch reports, the arrest comes as local officials are stepping up security measures ahead of president-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on Wednesday. US capital police say Wesley Allen Beeler of Front Royal Virginia, presented an unauthorized credential at a security checkpoint at around 6:30 pm Friday. While making the stop, police noticed a sticker on the rear windshield of Beeler's truck that said "If they come for your guns, give them your bullets first." Following a search of the truck Beeler was found to have a Glock 9-millimeter semi-automatic handgun, loaded with 17 rounds of ammunition, as well as more than 500 additional rounds of 9-millimeter ammunition and 21 12-gauge shotgun shells. Beeler was charged carrying a pistol without a license, according to documents filed in the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia. Dave Mistich, NPR news.

The death toll from Covid-19 in the US is nearing 400,000 with more than 23.6 million people infected with the coronavirus. This is according to data from Johns Hopkins University. As NPR's Amy Held reports, president-elect Biden is vowing to expand the rollout when he takes office. The US is less than 5% of the global population but makes up 20% of world's 2 million coronavirus deaths. And now with the new more contagious variant here, and expected to dominate by March, health officials say it's even more critical to act fast to curb the spread. But meantime several governors says vaccines promised from the National Stockpile are falling short. Dr Julie Merida is on president-elect Joe Biden's coronavirus task force, she told ABC's <Good Morning America> there is reason for reassurance. "There's still another 19 million doses that remained and can be tapped into and meanwhile the manufacturers are producing additional vaccine." Biden has pledged to boost supply from 100 million shots in his first 100 days. Amy Held, NPR news.

You know White House's first president-elect Biden is elevating the post of science advisor to a cabinet-level position, saying science will always be at the forefront of his administration. Today Biden announced key members of his science team which will focus on the battle against cancer which has impacted his family, as well as the pandemic and concerns about the climate. "This is a team that's going to help restore your faith in America's place in frontier of science, and discovery and hope." The team includes pioneering geneticist Eric Lander, nominated as White House Science Advisor. Lander is a professor at Harvard and MIT, and he helped lead the Human Genome Project. Biden also taped Alondra Nelson as Deputy Director for Science and Policy, and he says his team will ensure everything the new administration does is grounded in science facts.

Uganda's president has won a 6th term in office, cementing his place as one of the world's longest serving leaders. NPR's Eyder Peralta reports, the main opposition candidate calls the election "rigged". The electoral commission says President Yoweri Museveni won in a landslide with 58% of the votes. But his main opponent Bobi Wine says this was an election doomed from the beginning. He was often violently stopped from campaigning, his whole staffs were arrested, some were killed by security forces. And now his home is surrounded by the military. He says he is under house arrest. "So this, in my opinion, goes down as the worst election in the history of Uganda, as the most rigged, the most mismanaged election in the history of Uganda." The government rejects those allegations, saying the elections were free and fair, and that the military is at Bobi Wine's house to protect him. Eyder Peralta, NPR news, Kampala.

India has started vaccinating its health workers, in what is possibly the world's largest Covid-19 vaccination campaign. India's home to the world's biggest vaccine producers but there is no playbook for a program of this size. Officials hope to give vaccines to 300 million of its 1.3 billion residents, that's about the population of the United States. Recipients include 30 million doctors, nurses and other frontline workers and they will be followed by 270 million others aged 50 or older or those who have illnesses.
