1. Coronavirus 

More than 38 million people have been diagnosed with Covid-19 around the world, and more than 1,086,000 have died. The mayor of Manchester, Tennessee, Lonnie Norman, just lost his life to the virus, as did a Dutch woman who caught the virus twice. She is the first reported reinfection death in the world. Drugmaker Eli Lilly is the latest company to pause a major coronavirus related trial. It's halted its trial of a combination antibody treatment for unidentified safety reasons. Meanwhile, drugmaker Pfizer has plans to start testing its experimental coronavirus vaccine in children as young as 12. It will be the first US coronavirus vaccine trial to include children.

2. Supreme Court 

Amy Coney Barrett faced questions from Senate Judiciary Committee members yesterday, and unlike the contentious Brett Kavanaugh hearings in 2018, the lines of conversation remained mostly calm. Barrett gave detailed answers but revealed characteristically little about her personal judicial beliefs. At one point, a Republican Senator asked her to show the notes she had prepared for the hearing, and she held up a blank notepad, which supporters took as a sign of her intelligence and knowledge on the subjects before her. Barrett provided comments on abortion law, healthcare and the state of race in America. She said the killing of George Floyd was "very emotional" for her family, and that it is an uncontroversial and obvious statement that "racism persists in our country."

3. Election 2020

More states are reaching important voting milestones, and that's bringing even more woes. Texas voters endured long lines and waits on their first day of in-person voting, and in Virginia, the state's online voter registration site crashed on the last day before the registration deadline. Officials say the issues stemmed from a cut fiber line. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam says he's looking into ways to extend the deadline. In Pennsylvania, special agents with the US Postal Service discovered trash bags full of undelivered mail outside a postal worker's house, creating the potential for more distrust as the USPS plays its most pivotal election role ever. As if the stakes of next month's election could get any higher, an American credit rating agency says a contested election could cost the US its prized AAA credit rating.

4. ICE

Mexico has identified two women who may have been subjected to non-consensual surgeries while in ICE detention. The findings are part of a larger Mexican investigation into allegations of improper medical care at a privately run ICE facility in Georgia. In September, a former nurse filed a complaint raising concerns about the number of hysterectomies supposedly performed there, as well as alleged medical neglect. Mexican officials have interviewed at least 20 women as part of their investigation, and several say they had improper medical interactions. Of the two women the country identified, one received "a surgical intervention" that she did not authorize. The other underwent a gynecological surgery without a full explanation on her condition or the procedure.

5. Russia 

The Trump Administration would really like to extend a key arms agreement with Russia before the election, and even went as far as saying the two countries had a "gentlemen's agreement" to get it done. Russia, however, is flatly rejecting that claim. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Rybakov said there's no plan in place to extend the New START Treaty, which would require Russia freezing its nuclear arsenal. He also said that the US would not get an agreement on strategic arms control from Moscow before November's contest.

We have gone from being unable to vote legally to a highly courted voting bloc -- all in little more than a century.
