Biden administration’s new strategy is based around seven major goals, including restoring public trust in government efforts The president has pledged to vaccinate 100 million people in 100 days and reverse the impact of a year of mismanaged response under Donald Trump. Photograph: Joseph Prezioso/AFP/Getty Images Sign up for the Guardian’s First Thing newsletter Joe Biden is planning to sign another set of executive actions on Thursday, his first full day in the White House, aimed at making good on his plans to utilize the might of the federal government to end the coronavirus pandemic. His administration plans a coordinated federal coronavirus response aimed at restoring trust in the government and focused on boosting vaccines, increasing testing, reopening schools and addressing inequalities thrown up by the disease. “We can and will beat Covid-19. America deserves a response to the Covid-19 pandemic that is driven by science, data and public health – not politics,” the White House said in a statement outlining the administration’s national strategy on Covid-19 response and pandemic preparedness. The administration’s new strategy is based around seven major goals: restoring public trust in government efforts, getting more vaccine doses into more arms, mitigating the spread – including mask mandates – emergency economic relief, a strategy to get schools and workers functioning again, establishing an equity task force to address disparities in suffering involving issues of race, ethnicity and geography, and preparing for future threats. Biden has pledged to vaccinate 100 million people in 100 days and reverse the impact of a year of mismanaged response under Donald Trump that saw more than 400,000 people die and more than 24 million infected – by far the worst rates in the world. More than 4,200 people died of coronavirus in the US on Wednesday, the second highest daily total of an outbreak that had its first confirmed case exactly a year ago. But his executive orders are set to go far beyond just boosting vaccination efforts. The US president plans to re-engage with the World Health Organization, a reversal from the Trump administration’s move to cut ties during the pandemic and the new president is also starting a White House Covid-19 response team. Anthony Fauci, the key public health official dealing with the pandemic for the Trump administration and now for Biden’s, made a speech to the World Health Organization pre-dawn on Thursday after being chosen to head the US delegation to the global health group in one of the first acts of the Biden presidency. Fauci said letters had been delivered to the group to formally retract the process of US withdrawal from the WHO that Trump had announced last May after declaring it was too “China-centric” and disproportionately funded by the US to no benefit. “I am honored to announce the US will remain a member of the WHO. The US also intends to fulfill its financial obligations to the organization,” Fauci said. In a TV interview on Thursday morning, Fauci said “it was really a very good day” as the US recommitted to the WHO, disengagement from which, he said, other countries and health officials in the US alike had found “very disconcerting”. He said he was “fairly confident” that the US could reach its 100-day vaccinations goal. The Biden administration plans to partner with states and local governments to set up community vaccination centers at stadiums, gymnasiums and conference centers. The administration will staff these sites with personnel from federal agencies as well as first responders and medical personnel serving in the military. The government also plans to partner with federally qualified health centers to help reach undeserved communities to distribute vaccines and mobile clinics will also be set up. In order to further distribute vaccine doses, the Biden administration plans to discontinue the Trump administration’s policy of “holding back significant levels of doses”. More states will also be urged by the Biden administration to encourage vaccinations. Biden plans to issue an executive order setting up a Covid-19 pandemic testing board. The idea is for the board to offer a “clear, unified approach to testing”, according to Biden administration officials. Biden will sign another executive order to make testing for the virus free for Americans who don’t have health coverage and offer ways some of the most vulnerable Americans can get help. On traveling, Biden will sign an executive order requiring people to wear a mask on trains, airplanes and maritime vessels. Another executive order Biden plans to sign will require the departments of education and health and human services to give guidance on safely reopening schools. Biden also will release a presidential memorandum utilizing the Fema disaster relief fund for providing reimbursement for personal protective equipment (PPE), cleaning and costs needed to safely reopen schools. The Biden administration is also looking to fix supply shortfalls. Biden plans to direct federal agencies to fulfil supply shortfalls using the Defense Production Act. The Trump administration refrained from fully coordinating with the Biden transition team over the last few months. Biden will restore a White House team on global health risks set up under Barack Obama and dismantled under Donald Trump. The executive orders aim to help people of color in particular. One will set up the Covid-19 health equity taskforce. Biden will issue an order to develop a national strategy to reopen schools, hoping to meet his goal of having most elementary and middle schools open within his first 100 days in office and will ask Congress to provide $130bn additional aid to schools, $35bn for colleges and universities, $25bn for child care centers at risk of closing and $15bn in child care aid for struggling families.
Battered by criticism that the 2020 census was dangerously politicized by the Trump administration, the U.S. Census Bureau under a new Biden administration has the tall task of restoring confidence in the numbers that will be used to determine funding and political power. Picking up the pieces of a long, fractious process that spooled out during a global pandemic starts with transparency about irregularities in the data, former Census Bureau directors, lawmakers and advocates said. The high-stakes undertaking will determine how many congressional seats and Electoral College votes each state gets as well as the distribution of $1.5 trillion in federal spending each year.
The nonprofit Town Hall Project created Mutual Aid Hub to track all the various collective efforts when the coronavirus began its rapid global spread in March. Back then, it counted only 50 mutual aid groups but by May, the number grew to more than 800 in 48 states, driven by what the hub's lead organizer Shivani Desai called a “grassroots explosion of organizing.” While these informal networks have sprouted up in response to the pandemic, mutual aid organizers and scholars say they have existed long before then.

FBI Director Chris Wray is staying on the job, CNN and NBC News report.While White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki declined to disclose Wray's fate at her first press conference Wednesday night, sources tell CNN and NBC News that President Biden will keep him on the job. The decision comes even after law enforcement failed to intercept a mob of Trump supporters' plans to attack the Capitol building earlier this month. Former President Donald Trump appointed Wray to his post after firing former FBI Director James Comey. Trump had reportedly been considering firing McCabe in the last month of his presidency, but was advised against doing so because an acting replacement or Biden nominee might target him. The New York Times' Maggie Haberman reported in the weeks before the inauguration Biden's team was planning to keep Wray unless he was fired.CNN's legal correspondent deemed Biden's decision the "right call," even though the FBI head ended up "disappearing a bit these last two weeks" after the Capitol attack. FBI directors are appointed for 10-year terms, and are meant to outlast presidents so partisanship doesn't influence their work. Kathryn Krawczyk > The FBI director term is 10 yrs because it’s designed to extend beyond the appointing president. This is the right call even without considering Wray’s performance (which, except for disappearing a bit these last two weeks has been pretty darn good given the challenges he faced). https://t.co/O7jZYOriiC> > — Jennifer Rodgers (@JenGRodgers) January 21, 2021More stories from theweek.com 7 brutally funny cartoons about Trump's White House exit Bernie Sanders steals the inauguration with his grumpy chic outfit Voting to convict Trump would cost McConnell his Senate leadership, GOP faction warns

The Galaxy S21 is the entry-level model of Samsung’s new trio of flagships, and it offers a compelling mix of features for the price. The Galaxy S21 is a distillation of what most users want and ditches the superfluous stuff.
In many ways, the Galaxy S21 Ultra is a by-the-book upgrade — it’s faster, its cameras are more polished, and its software is a little cleaner. Calling it a thrill would be a stretch. With that in mind, the Ultra absolutely shines this year, not because of game-changing updates, but because it addresses basically all the problems we saw in last year’s model.
Schools could open before Easter, Gavin Williamson has suggested, saying he will give a two-week warning to headteachers. The Education Secretary said he "would certainly hope" that children would be back in the classroom by early April, adding that he wants this to happen at the "earliest possible opportunity". It is the first time Mr Williamson has hinted at a possible timeline for the reopening of schools, and comes after Dr Jenny Harries, the deputy chief medical officer, suggested schools in some parts of the country will reopen sooner than those in others. Primary and secondary schools were ordered to close at the start of the month to all but the children of key workers and the most vulnerable youngsters. Announcing the latest national lockdown on January 4, Boris Johnson said schools would need to remain shut until the February half-term at the earliest. On Thursday, Mr Williamson said a key factor in determining when schools could reopen would be whether pressures on the NHS had eased sufficiently. He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that headteachers will be given "absolutely proper notice" about when they need to prepare to reopen, adding that a "clear two-week notice period" will be factored in so schools have time to prepare for pupils' return. "Schools were the last to close, schools will be the first to open," the Education Secretary said. "I want to see that as soon as the scientific and health advice is there to open at the earliest possible stage, and I would certainly hope that that would be before Easter. "Any decision to reopen schools to all children – as all decisions in terms of schools – will be based on the best health advice and the best scientific advice."
For the first time in more than a decade, Republicans are waking up to a Washington where Democrats control the White House and Congress, adjusting to an era of diminished power, deep uncertainty and internal feuding. Over the last four years, the GOP's values were inexorably tied to the whims of a president who regularly undermined democratic institutions and traded the party's longstanding commitment to fiscal discipline, strong foreign policy and the rule of law for a brash and inconsistent populism. The party now faces a decision about whether to keep moving in that direction, as many of Trump's most loyal supporters demand, or chart a new course.

Dr. Salomon Melgen once held political fundraisers at his palatial Florida home, hung out with prominent Democrats including New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez and made millions of dollars through his eye care practice. The problem, according to federal prosecutors, was that Melgen was also bilking Medicare out of at least $73 million by persuading numerous elderly patients to undergo tests and get treatment for diseases they did not actually have. A White House statement credited Menendez with supporting clemency for Melgen, who was a donor to Democratic politicians and a longtime friend of the Cuban-American New Jersey senator.
Farmer leaders on Thursday rejected an offer from the Indian government to suspend contentious agricultural reform laws for 18 months and set up a committee to look into their concerns about the legislation that have triggered the biggest farmers’ protests in years. Tens and thousands of farmers have been blocking key highways connecting the capital with the country’s north for nearly two months and have threatened to intensify their protest by organizing a massive tractor rally in New Delhi during Republic Day celebrations on Jan. 26. Angry farmers say the legislation passed by Parliament in September will lead to the cartelization and commercialization of agriculture, make farmers vulnerable to corporate greed and devastate their earnings.
