An 'Emergency Brake,’ a Vaccine and More COVID-19 News

On the Nov. 16 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters discuss California’s COVID-19 surge, Newsom’s response, a second vaccine and pressure around who should replace Kamala Harris on the Senate. 

'Emergency Brake’ 
Gov. Gavin Newsom announced what he called an “emergency break” on reopening the state’s economy in response to COVID-19 numbers doubling in the past 10 days. Mike Roe explains what that means across Southern California. 

Second Vaccine 
With news about a second vaccine in development, Gina Pollack explores how a vaccine could be rolled out once approved. 

Tipping Point 
California is currently at a tipping point for COVID-19 infections, says Jackie Fortier as she puts the latest COVID-19 news into context. 

Harris Replacement Pressure 
Libby Denkmann has been following the conversations around the pick for a Senate replacement for vice president-elect Kamala Harris — and it is not without controversy, she says.
