Your Daily Roundup for December 11th
Let us know what you think.
Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
A Vaccine is coming:
The FDA is expected to grant emergency authorization for the Pfizer vaccine on Saturday, which would make it the first approved COVID-19 vaccine in the United States. A panel of outside experts to the FDA met yesterday to vote on the safety and efficacy of the vaccine, giving it the green light, which now brings it to the FDA for emergency approval. Once approved, vaccinations will begin for healthcare workers and nursing home residents as early as next week.
A landmark lawsuit has been waged against Facebook:
In a watershed lawsuit, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and nearly every state accused tech and social media giant Facebook of violating antitrust laws by buying up competing companies to root out competition. The lawsuit comes after 18 months of investigations by federal and state authorities and regulators, and pinpoint two major purchases by Facebook (Instagram in 2012 and WhatsApp in 2014) as potentially illegal acquisitions.

The top infectious disease expert in the federal government, Dr. Anthony Fauci, is reminding Americans that a return to normalcy brought on by vaccines won’t happen until summer 2021 or later. In an interview with CNN, Dr. Fauci said, "If we have a smooth vaccination program where everybody steps to the plate quickly, we could get back to some form of normality, reasonably quickly. Into the summer, and certainly into the fall.”
