This week on the show, host Daniel Vaughan starts the first segment out going through the latest numbers on the COVID-19 pandemic and why the numbers are so good on the vaccine front, and what to expect in the coming days and weeks.

The first is the 6 months check-in reports, the second is the issue over the South African variants, and finally a CNN report on air travel that fails math and science.
