Super Tuesday, Coronavirus, Supreme Court: Your Wednesday Briefing

Good morning.

We’re covering Super Tuesday results, the spread of the coronavirus in the U.S., and a milestone in Iran’s nuclear program.

You interviewed a truck driver from Mongolia who may need a new job because the border with China has closed. How did you find him?

The truck driver, Battogtokh Uurtsaikh, is someone I met in the Gobi Desert in October. I was reporting a story about how China’s demand for coal plays such a big role in the lives of Mongolians.

I met Mr. Battogtokh on this highway between Mongolia’s biggest coal deposit and a dusty border town with China. He was with four other young truck drivers who were working together to fix a flat tire and a broken hub on one of their trucks. They grew up together and now travel in a pack, each in his own truck with a walkie-talkie to communicate.
