2. President-elect Joe Biden gets COVID-19 vaccine on live TV
President-elect Joe Biden on Monday received his first dose of the coronavirus vaccine on live television as part of a growing effort to convince the American public the inoculations are safe. The president-elect took a dose of Pfizer vaccine at a hospital not far from his Delaware home, hours after his wife, Jill Biden, did the same. The injections came the same day that a second vaccine, produced by Moderna, will start arriving in the states. It joins Pfizer’s in the nation’s arsenal against the COVID-19 pandemic, which has now killed more than 317,000 people in the United States and upended life around the globe.
“I’m ready,” said Biden, who was administered the dose at a hospital in Newark, Delaware, and declined the option to count to three before the needle was inserted into his left arm. “I’m doing this to demonstrate that people should be prepared when it’s available to take the vaccine. There’s nothing to worry about.”
3. South Africa: Holly Rey tests positive for COVID-19

The “Deeper” hitmaker shared a picture of herself on Instagram, along with a lengthy caption where she explained her symptoms saying that she has been following the restriction, but still got the virus. She also said that being diabetic makes her a high-risk patient but her doctors have everything under control.
“Tested Positive for COVID-19. On Saturday I started having body aches and I was feeling a bit shaky and nauseous. On Monday I phoned my doctor and she sent me straight to have a COVID test which came back this morning as positive,” she said.
We wish her a speedy recovery.
