This is a slight drop for Biden compared to the pre-audit results. Officials have said repeatedly that the audit confirmed there was no widespread fraud or irregularities in the election.

Trump concedes pandemic to 'get worse before it gets better' Media playback is unsupported on your device President Donald Trump has warned the US pandemic may "get worse before it gets better", as he revived his virus briefings with a more scripted tone.

The president, who was not wearing a mask at the briefing, has previously disparaged them as unsanitary. His aides have reportedly pressed him to adopt a more measured approach as virus caseloads spike across the US. The daily White House news conferences ended soon after Mr Trump suggested in April during freewheeling remarks from the podium that the virus might be treated by injecting disinfectant into people.

Covid studies to examine virus link with ethnicity Image copyright Getty Images UK scientists are to receive millions of pounds of government funding for a raft of studies to learn why people from an ethnic minority background are at greater risk from Covid-19.

One will follow 30,000 health and social-care staff for a year. Researchers say there will be rapid action based on the findings. Prof Kamlesh Khunti, director of the Centre for BME Health at the University of Leicester, who is involved in three of the studies, told BBC News he expected results to be translated into guidance that would help save black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) lives within months.

Thousands of people in California had their power shut off amid wildfire danger Strong Santa Ana winds, combined with dry fuels, led Southern California Edison (SCE) to enact a Public Safety Power Shutoff -- the intentional disruption of power to mitigate wildfire danger. Low humidity and wind gusts of 40-65 miles per hour are expected, according to the National Weather Center, raising the danger of debris coming in contact with power equipment that could emit sparks igniting dry brush and exploding into a wildfire. Nearly 112,000 more SCE customers have been warned that their electricity could be cut at any time on Thursday and Friday. "We understand these PSPS actions are disruptive to our customers—especially during the Thanksgiving holiday—and we are making every effort to reduce the impact," SCE said on Twitter. Before shutting off power, SCE uses weather forecasts and field observations to determine whether there's a serious danger of objects blowing into power lines. The power will be restored after the weather event ends and crews believe it is safe to do so.
