Adar Poonawalla, CEO of the world’s largest vaccine manufacturer, says that not enough COVID-19 vaccines will be available to inoculate the global population until at least the end of 2024.

2. Reporter arrested while covering protest in LA shares video of the incident


KPCC reporter Josie Huang was arrested in Lynwood in LA on Saturday night while covering the shooting of two police officers.

She shared her account of what happened that night, with cell phone recordings to back it up.
