A man already tested positive in Massachusetts and the CDC expects the same from two patients in Utah and one each in New York and Florida. The disease has spread to 12 countries in the past two weeks.       President Biden is on his way home after wrapping up a five-day trip to Asia. He met with leaders of Japan, India and Australia overnight for a summit of the Quad nations. He told them the world is navigating a dark hour and the war in Ukraine has become a global issue.        Polls are now open in Alabama and Arkansas for today's primary election. Georgia was the first to begin in-person voting this morning where the governor is hoping to win the GOP nomination. He campaigned with former VP Mike Pence who hinted at a possible 2024 run.       More children are adding to the nation's population. Birth rates rose about one percent last year after a steep decline during the first year of the pandemic. New CDC data shows this is the first increase in seven years, when births began dropping around two percent annually.        Another state is on the verge of banning transgender girls from playing school sports. Indiana's governor vetoed a bill in March but today House Republicans are expected to override that. They claim it will level the playing field and help girls get an athletic scholarship to college.       Some employees at a major video game company are joining a union.
