WEEKEND EDITION- Charges in George Floyd Case, Autopsy Results, Looting in Los Angeles

Coronavirus Vaccine May Require More Than One Shot to Grant Immunity

Right now there are over 100 coronavirus vaccine candidates in various stages of testing and when one finally breaks through, it may not be as simple as one shot and you’re done.There is a high likelihood that an eventual vaccine could be a two-dose protocol given a month or two apart, with the first injection priming the immune system and the second strengthening the immune response.Elizabeth Weise, reporter at USA Today, joins us for why you might need two coronavirus shots. Next, as protests continue around the country, the DEA has been given permission to collect intelligence on people protesting George Floyd’s death according to a memo obtained by BuzzFeed News.The authority was granted only on a two week basis as they look to provide law enforcement with backup in investigating extremist groups and those causing violence. Jason Leopold, senior investigative reporter at BuzzFeed News, joins us for more. Finally, the latest unemployment data is showing that the number of workers applying for and receiving unemployment benefits still remained historically high, but eased at the end of May.This leads many to hope that the worst of the economic fallout from that pandemic is over.Sarah Chaney, economics reporter at the WSJ, joins us for some good economic news.

Finally, the coronavirus pandemic has reduced public education in the U.S. to a shell of its former self.A Reuters survey of several school districts found that students aren’t having enough facetime with teachers, some districts don’t even take attendance for online classes, and access to classes is also difficult at times.Michael Pell, reporter at Reuters, joins us for how schools have been affected.

The family of George Floyd has released results of an independent autopsy saying that he was asphyxiated when the now-fired officer, Derek Chauvin, put his knee on Floyd’s neck.This info contradicted some aspects of the Hennepin County Medical Examiner report which now released some updates also calling Mr. Floyd’s death a homicide.Paul Walsh, reporter at the Minneapolis Star Tribune, joins us for more on these autopsy report details.

Independent Autopsy and Hennepin County Report Say George Floyd's Death Was a Homicide

Protests Around the Country Over Police Violence Erupt Into Vandalism and Looting

Protests around the country are erupting into violence, vandalism, and looting.Protests against police brutality and in support of George Floyd, have been high jacked and are detracting from the original message.Curfews have been set in more cities and the National Guard has been called in to back up police in about 16 states.Steve Gregory, reporter for KFI News in Los Angeles, was at the destructive protests over the weekend in LA and joins us for what he saw and reactions from the business owners who got their businesses ransacked. Next, while unrest continues across the country, concerns about the coronavirus pandemic still remain.We are still waiting for a treatment or vaccine, but there’s also some uncertainty to immunity for those that have had the disease and recovered. We still don’t know for how long someone might be protected from COVID-19 after they have gotten it.And in your body, it’s not just antibodies that are fighting the virus, B cells and T cells also help fight illnesses after antibodies have disappeared.Katherine Wu, science reporter at Smithsonian Magazine, joins us for why immunity to the coronavirus is so complicated.

WEEKEND EDITION- Las Vegas Set to Reopen, Some Economic Improvement, Trump's Fight With Social Media Platforms

Las Vegas Casinos Set to Reopen on June 4 After Coronavirus Shutdown

Las Vegas has a date to reopen! On June 4, selected casinos will be open for business.Temperatures will be checked and employees will wear masks.Bars and restaurants will be open, but buffets will continue to be closed.On the gambling floor, there will be increased cleaning and less people a table. Bailey Schulz, reporter at the Las Vegas Review-Journal, joins us for the plans to open Vegas. Next, President Trump has signed an executive order that could open the door for federal regulators to punish Facebook, Google, and Twitter for the way they moderate content online.This order comes after Twitter decided to fact check some posts by the president about mail-in voting.The order could pave the way for a revision of a long standing legal protection known as section 230.Cat Zakrzewski, author of the Technology 202 Newsletter at the Washington Post, joins us for the fight against big tech companies. Finally, antibody tests and issues with their accuracy have led to more questions for many who felt they were ill before the first reported coronavirus case in January.After looking at their personal histories and antibody test results some think that the coronavirus could have been circulating as early as November of last year.Dan Frosch, reporter at the WSJ, joins us for more.

New Epicenter for Coronavirus Is South America

South America has now become a new epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic.Brazil now has the second most cases of COVID-19 only behind the United States, and President Bolsonaro is still refusing to impose strict measures to curb the spread.Other countries like Peru and Chile are also facing increased numbers.Alex Ward, reporter at Vox and co-host of the Worldly podcast, joins us for how South America’s numbers are going up. Next, as the country is on the road to reopening many cities are closing the roads to make way for restaurants and people.In order to allow for people to properly social distance, some public roads are being closed to allow restaurants to expand their seating arrangements and provide more space for residents to run, walk, and ride.Mike Laris, transportation reporter at the Washington Post, joins us for how cities are making more room. Finally, the whole reason behind flattening the curve was so that the healthcare system would not be overwhelmed.But as many hospitals prepared for the worst, in some areas the cases never came.One example is the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center where a whole floor was cleared for COVID-19 cases.Despite the cost, officials don’t regret over preparing.Jim Carlton, reporter for the WSJ, joins us for more.
