FILE PHOTO: The brand logo of Nissan Motor Corp. in Yokohama, south of Tokyo, Japan July 14, 2020. REUTERS/Issei Kato/File PhotoJOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Japanese automotive group Nissan is to set up a new regional business unit for Africa as it seeks to boost manufacturing capacity and penetrate one of the world’s biggest undeveloped new car markets. But its 1 billion inhabitants account for only 1% of the world’s new passenger car sales, based on industry data. Most carmakers have focused manufacturing and sales in South Africa - the continent’s most developed economy - which accounts for 85% of Africa’s new car purchases. Nissan, along with competitors Volkswagen, BMW, and Toyota, have been lobbying African governments to grant conditions that favour local assembly and manufacturing while curbing imports of cheap used cars.

The Volkswagen Beetle sold over 23 million units in its 81-year run. A new Volkswagen Beetle in 1967 came in at $1,600, about 12 grand in today's money. That same year, VW Beetle sales in the US hit an all-time peak with 423,000 cars sold. But as sales slipped in the US, the VW Beetle found success abroad. After eight decades, worldwide success, and arguably legendary status, has the Volkswagen Beetle really hit the end of the road?

(CNN) French sailor Kevin Escoffier has been rescued by fellow competitor and compatriot Jean Le Cam in a round-the-world race after spending over 11 hours in a life raft. Both men were competing in the Vendée Globe , a 24,296-mile solo sailing race, when Escoffier hit trouble. Race organizers responded by diverting Le Cam on a rescue mission, with the Frenchman the nearest competitor to the scene. Le Cam himself was rescued in this race in 2009 after spending 16 hours in his upturned yacht and Escoffier said he was not scared as soon as he saw his rival in the distance. French skipper Jean Le Cam diverted from the race to rescue Kevin Escoffier.

COVID R&D Alliance launches trial of Amgen, UCB, Takeda drugs

(Reuters) - Amgen Inc, UCB SA and Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc on Monday launched a global trial to identify whether any of three different drugs can reduce the severity of COVID-19 in hospitalized patients by moderating the immune system’s response to the disease. The three compounds “have a plausible biologic rationale in terms of effect on immune response or the hyper-immune response that some people develop,” said Amgen research chief David Reese. The multiple candidates will be tested against a placebo with all trial patients also receiving standard care. Other drugs that work in a variety of ways, including antivirals, medicines that also modulate immune response and vascular agents may enter the study in coming months. The COVID R&D trial will enroll both hospitalized intensive care unit and non-ICU patients.

REUTERS/James Oatway(Reuters) - Diamond mining giant De Beers on Monday outlined plans to ethically source its diamonds and be carbon neutral by 2030 due to growing investor pressure on companies to be environmentally and socially responsible. The initiative is the latest example of a miner setting sustainability goals in an industry blamed for depletion of natural resources, smuggling and child labor in supply lines. The company has tracked high-value diamonds from miner to retailer using blockchain to clear the supply chain of imposters and conflict minerals. Advocacy group Human Rights Watch had warned this month that major jewellery brands are still not doing enough to combat human rights and environmental abuses in their gold and diamond supply chains.

GENEVA (Reuters) - Ten COVID-19 vaccines could be available by the middle of next year if they win regulatory approval, but their inventors need patent protection, the head of the global pharmaceutical industry group said on Friday. Syringes are seen in front of displayed Biontech and Pfizer logos in this illustration taken November 10, 2020. “We will hopefully by the next summer have probably 10 vaccines which have proven their value. Cueni said that IFPMA archives showed there had never been a compulsory license granted for a vaccine and pointed to the difficult technology and know-how. Nearly every member company had committed to “not-for-profit” or socially responsible pricing during the pandemic, he added.

FILE PHOTO: Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed waits for the arrival of European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen before their meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia December 7, 2019. Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch, said such efforts were not akin to protecting civilians from harm. In September, before the Tigray hostilities began, the U.N. migration agency IOM said conflict had displaced more than 1.2 million Ethiopians around the country. Abiy accuses Tigrayan leaders of starting the war by attacking federal troops at a base in Tigray three weeks ago.

AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford are facing criticism over their COVID-19 vaccine trial results after admitting a mistake in the vaccine dosage. AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford on Wednesday acknowledged a dosing error in their COVID-19 vaccine trial — and some health experts have said it has eroded their confidence in the shot. The COVID-19 vaccine is on average 70% effective, according to the latest large-scale trial results announced Monday. Their vaccine trials were paused after an "unexplained illness" in one UK trial participant in September. In November, drugmakers Pfizer and Moderna announced that trial results suggested their respective vaccines were 95% effective in preventing COVID-19.

Oxford University and AstraZeneca announced on Monday that their vaccine works — but the story soon got messy. AstraZeneca's Mene Pangalos said a group of study participants received a lower dose by accident, prompting a wave of criticism from experts. There are legitimate reasons to criticise the vaccine, questioning details of the development process and its precise effectiveness. But it is important not to overhype the problems — the vaccine has been proved safe and could become a powerful weapon against COVID-19. AstraZeneca and Oxford University's high-profile announcement on Monday of a working vaccine has soured in the days that followed.

UK pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca will likely run a second global trial to assess its COVID-19 vaccine's efficacy, the CEO told Bloomberg News on Thursday. AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford announced Monday that preliminary results showed their two-dose vaccine could be up to 90% effective at preventing COVID-19. But the team later admitted that there was an error in the trial, leaving some participants with half-doses. Experts say that error casts doubt on the validity of the efficacy rate cited, and warrants further study. AstraZeneca's efficacy rate, however, was more complicated.

Mr. Neil, who went on to be a broadcaster and publisher, is no reflexive defender of the royal family. Suspicious of Britain’s class system, he said he had sympathies for the republican movement in the 1980s. The show depicts his being fired for having leaked the story, even though it suggests that he did so at the queen’s behest. Simon Jenkins, a columnist for the left-leaning Guardian, regards members of the royal family as artifacts of celebrity culture irrelevant to a country grappling with real-world challenges like Brexit. (He based the report on an off-the-record interview with the prince.)
