Yesterday brought more bad news about the current state of the pandemic, even as we got more good news about ending it in the future.

Plus, the latest on the recount in Georgia.And in headlines: the Trump administration can no longer deport children who cross the southern border, Boeing’s 737 Max airplanes are once again approved to fly, and Apple cuts fees on small app developers but critics say it’s not enough.
