Britain signs deals with Pfizer, BioNTech, Valneva for COVID-19 vaccines

first_img“This new partnership with some of the world’s foremost pharmaceutical and vaccine companies will ensure the UK has the best chance possible of securing a vaccine that protects those most at risk,” business minister Alok Sharma said.The deals follow a previously announced agreement with AstraZeneca for the firm to produce 100 million doses of its potential vaccine being developed in partnership with the University of Oxford.There is currently no working vaccine against COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, and experts say one will be needed to control the pandemic that has infected millions of people around the world and killed over 600,000.Britain also said on Monday it had secured treatments containing COVID-19-neutralising antibodies from AstraZeneca to protect people who can’t be vaccinated.  Topics : Britain has signed deals to secure 90 million doses of two possible COVID-19 vaccines from the Pfizer Inc and BioNTech alliance and French group Valneva, the business ministry said on Monday.Britain had secured 30 million doses of the experimental BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine, and a deal in principle for 60 million doses of the Valneva vaccine, with an option of 40 million more doses if it was proven to be safe, effective and suitable, the ministry said.Financial terms of the deals were not confirmed.last_img read more


South Korea retakes top spot in shipbuilding orders in October

first_imgFor illustration purposes only; Image courtesy of HHISouth Korea grabbed the top spot in the global shipbuilding market in October, as liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier market dominance continues.According to London-based Clarkson Research Services, South Korean shipyards, led by Hyundai Heavy Industries, won orders totaling 1.29 million compensated gross tons (CGTs) in October.This number was reached through orders for 17 ships, accounting for 86 percent of the orders placed around the globe.China, which topped global shipbuilding orders in September, only secured orders for 150,000 CGTs or eight ships in October.Clarkson also stated that this was the first time this year that South Korea surpassed 1 million CGTs in monthly orders.In the first ten months of the year, South Korean shipbuilders secured orders totaling 6.95 million CGTs worth $15.9 billion, ahead of their Chinese rivals who bagged a total of 6.11 million CGTs in orders worth $13.6 billion.In terms of order backlog, China tops the list with 26.42 million CGTs, followed by South Korea with 21.32 million CGTs, and Japan with 11.91 million CGTs.It is worth noting that South Korea’s dominance in the LNG carrier market is spearheading its overall performance. Namely, South Korean shipyards won 32 of 35 orders placed for LNG carriers in the first ten months of 2019.last_img read more


Clear Lake tax rate to remain the same for next fiscal year (AUDIO)

first_imgCLEAR LAKE — The Clear Lake City Council last week approved the city’s Fiscal Year 2020 budget. City Administrator Scott Flory says the city is keeping the tax rate the same at $9.70 per $1000 assessed valuation for the next fiscal year.  “For the fourth consecutive year we’ve have had no increase or the rate has remained the same, so we’ve actually decreased the rate. Since Fiscal Year 2017, we were at $10.54, then we dropped that down to $10.04, then we dropped that down to $9.80. Again for the last two fiscal years we’ve dropped that down to $9.70.”Flory says the $9.70 tax rate is one of the best when compared to other cities in Iowa. “That is actually the fourth lowest tax rate for the state of Iowa for communities that have a population of 4,000 or higher.  That’s a point of pride for our community. We’re in the mix with some metro Des Moines communities like Altoona, Urbandale and Clive, and Ames and some others there. So to have a tax rate that is the fourth lowest really is a competitive advantage for us.”One of the key capital improvement projects included in next year’s budget is the construction of North 32nd Street adjacent to the former Andrews Pre-stressed Concrete property. Flory says the $1.8 million project will include street paving as well as infrastructure in the hopes of getting that area ready for potential development. “There’s a 66-acre parcel on the west side of this area of North 32nd Street, and there’s also land on the east side that would be available for development. That’s something for Clear Lake that we don’t have a lot of land right now that’s developed and marketable for industrial development prospects. Currently, our industrial park has one lot remaining, and it’s a six-acre parcel, so that really limits our opportunities for marketing our community for new prospects.”The budget has total expenditures of slightly over $14.3 million. Flory made his comments on the “Ask the Mayor” program on AM-1300 KGLO earlier today, which you can listen back to via the audio player belowlast_img read more
