David Feinberg, CEO of Geisinger, is the top candidate to lead a buzzy new health care initiative from Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and J.P. Morgan, according to CNBC. He has not yet accepted the job.

Bottom line: Feinberg is a highly regarded physician and executive. But he’s also running a hospital system that recently said it’s content with the status quo, making it unclear what he’d do to enact major change through this venture.

Update: Feinberg says in a statement that he is "100% committed to Geisinger and I am staying at Geisinger because I love Geisinger." A spokesman confirms that this means he wouldn't accept the other CEO role if asked.

More young people are being infected with the coronavirus, and even though they're less likely to die from it, experts warn the virus' spread among young adults may further fuel outbreaks across the United States.

Why it matters: Some people in their 20s and 30s face serious health complications from COVID-19, and a surge in cases among young people gives the virus a bigger foothold, increasing the risk of infection for more vulnerable people.

D.C. District Judge Emmet Sullivan on Thursday petitioned for the full D.C. Court of Appeals to rehear a three-judge panel's decision to order the dismissal of the case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Why it matters: The panel's 2-1 decision could be overturned by the full 11-judge appeals court if it decides to take up the en banc review.
