Dan Diamond — who is sadly leaving POLITICO after five years on the health beat — explains how there were warning signs in the early days of President Trump’s health policies. Plus, Biden’s transition team urges quick confirmations of his national security picks. And Johnson & Johnson falls behind on vaccine production.
