WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States entered the final month of the year hoping that promising vaccine candidates will soon be approved to halt the rapidly spreading novel coronavirus after 4.2 million new cases were reported in November. FILE PHOTO: A health worker provides a COVID-19 test at a drive-through testing site, as the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to spread, in Staten Island, New York, U.S. November 25, 2020. “One hundred percent of the Americans that want the vaccine will have the vaccine by (June). We will have over 300 million doses available to the American public well before then,” Paul Ostrowski, the vaccine program’s director of supply, production and distribution, told MSNBC television on Monday. “If these trends continue, we’re going to have to take much more dramatic, arguably drastic, action.”

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech are in a tight race to launch their COVID-19 vaccines in Europe after both applied for emergency EU approval on Tuesday, though there was uncertainty over whether a rollout could begin this year. FILE PHOTO: A small shopping basket filled with vials labeled "COVID-19 - Coronavirus Vaccine" is placed on a Pfizer logo in this illustration taken November 29, 2020. U.S. drugmaker Pfizer and its German development partner BioNTech said their vaccine could be launched in the European Union as early as this month. “We can start to deliver within a few hours (of an approval),” said Sierk Poetting, head of operations and finance at BioNTech. The EMA said on Tuesday it had started a rolling review of Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine candidate after preliminary results showed it triggered production of antibodies and immune cells against the virus.

REUTERS/John SibleyLONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit supremo, Michael Gove, said on Tuesday that there was a chance that Brexit trade talks may end without a deal, the nightmare finale to the five-year Brexit crisis. “We have intensified the negotiation process, but it’s important that the EU also lives up to its responsibilities as well,” Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Gove told ITV’s Good Morning Britain. Asked whether a no deal was closer than anyone would admit, he said: “I think it’s certainly the case that there is a chance that we may not get a negotiated outcome, that’s why it’s important business prepares for all eventualities, but I very much want a deal and I believe that we can secure one.”

LONDON (Reuters) - A senior British minister said on Tuesday there was still a chance of a turbulent Brexit without a trade deal as talks with the European Union had snagged on fishing, governance rules and dispute resolution. Britain’s Office for Budget Responsibility said last week that failure to agree a free trade deal would wipe an extra 2% off UK economic output - in addition to the 4% drop from leaving the bloc with a deal - while driving up inflation, unemployment and public borrowing. “The EU still wants to take the lion’s share of the fishing in our waters - which is just not fair given that we are leaving the EU,” Gove told Sky. A trade deal would not only safeguard trade but also buttress peace in British-ruled Northern Ireland. Irish Prime Minister Micheal Martin said a deal could be done this week.

Slideshow ( 2 images )LONDON (Reuters) - Brexit trade talks are still stuck on fishing, governance rules and dispute resolution because the European Union is asking too much, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit supremo, Michael Gove, said on Tuesday. Negotiators are trying to hash out a trade deal to avoid a tumultuous finale to the five-year Brexit crisis when Britain finally exits the EU’s orbit in four weeks’ time. “The EU still wants to take the lion’s share of the fishing in our waters - which is just not fair given that we are leaving the EU,” Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Gove told Sky. “The EU still want us to be tied to their way of doing things,” Gove said. Failure to secure a deal would snarl borders, spook financial markets and disrupt delicate supply chains that stretch across Europe and beyond -- just as the world grapples with the vast economic cost of the COVID-19 outbreak.

LONDON (Reuters) - Brexit trade talks are stuck on fishing, governance rules and dispute resolution because the European Union is asking too much of Britain, a senior member of the British government said on Tuesday. With each side urging the other to compromise, a French official said Britain must clarify its positions and “really negotiate”, and cautioned that the EU would not accept a “substandard deal”. Talks have snagged on fishing in Britain’s rich waters, on what EU rules London will accept and on how any dispute might be resolved. BREXIT NERVESGerman Chancellor Angela Merkel, Europe’s most powerful national leader, has said some of the EU’s 27 member states are getting impatient. “The priority is for the British to clarify their positions and really negotiate to find a deal,” a French presidency official told Reuters.

The UK and the EU are still trying to seal a trade deal amid big differences on issues such as fishing and state aid.

Liverpool's mass COVID-19 testing program, a pilot in Prime Minister Boris Johnson's "Operation Moonshot vision," is dividing public health officials and politicians, according to The Washington Post. Liverpool, the UK's tenth largest city, has implemented a mass swabbing and testing program to curb the spread of COVID-19 — and according to new reporting from The Washington Post, there are mixed feelings about the program. The implementation of the pilot mass testing program in Liverpool is part of a broader effort to conduct six-week testing surges across the country's "Tier 3" cities after the national lockdown ends next week. Health Secretary Matt Hancock also praised the effort and claimed that in Liverpool, cases had declined by two thirds. At the start of December, 40% of England's population will be eligible for mass testing, and the government's goal is to swab 10 million people a day.

REUTERS/Charles Platiau/File PhotoAdding Elon Musk’s Tesla to Wall Street’s most followed benchmark will force index funds to buy about $73 billion worth of its shares, S&P Dow Jones Indices said. At that time, S&P Dow Jones Indices said it would consult investors about whether to potentially add Tesla in two tranches a week apart to make the addition easier to handle for index funds. About a fifth of Tesla’s shares are closely held by Musk, the chief executive, and other insiders. S&P Dow Jones said it would announce on Dec. 11 which company Tesla would replace in the S&P 500.

Only 42 percent of Americans said “yes” to whether they’d get a Covid-19 vaccine when it becomes available, according to a YouGov poll released in August. Johnson and a team of researchers published a paper in Nature in May that suggested the anti-vaccination movement bore a big responsibility for such hesitancy. A report by the London-based nonprofit organization Center for Countering Digital Hate found that the anti-vaccination movement gained about 8 million followers since 2019. These include the 224,000-member Vaccination Re-education Discussion Forum, a private anti-vaccination group exclusively focused on Covid-19 vaccines. As such, banning accounts with large followings is unlikely to have much real impact on the larger anti-vaccination movement.

After those in nursing homes, amounting to around 840,000 people in France, a second phase would target those aged 65 and over, as well as some health workers, the HAS said. The European Union has so far secured deals with Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca, CureVac, Pfizer and BioNTech as well as Moderna. With 1.9 billion doses expected at this stage to reach the EU, France aims to secure about 295 million doses.

Sturgeon said she wanted another vote “in the early part of the next term of the Scottish parliament rather than the later part”, declining to rule out a possible vote in autumn 2021. London must give permission for any plebiscite, and in remarks to BBC radio Sturgeon declined to preclude taking legal action should Johnson block another vote.

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain and the European Union cautioned each other on Monday that time was running out for a Brexit trade deal as negotiators sparred over state aid, enforcement and fishing in a bid to avoid a tumultuous exit in just a month’s time. “We are running out of time here,” said Ireland’s Brexit supremo, Foreign Minister Simon Coveney. A trade deal on goods would safeguard nearly $1 trillion in annual trade and buttress peace in British-ruled Northern Ireland, though some disruption is almost certain at the busiest EU-UK border points. British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said it was a significant week for Brexit. But he told Ireland’s Newstalk Radio that a failure to agree on fishing rights could wreck a deal.
