    US President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday, which his administration says will ensure that “Americans receive priority access” to the new coronavirus vaccines procured by the US government before they are made available to other nations. A senior administration official confirmed that the vaccine will be given for free to US citizens.

    Coronavirus numbers are climbing in Turkey, which now ranks second globally in the highest number of daily cases. After months of pressure by health experts and opposition politicians, the government has changed the way it counts cases. That’s revealed a much worse situation than previously thought.
