How worried should we be about reports of blood clots and AstraZeneca’s vaccine?

FRANKFURT/PARIS — Europe’s drug watchdog is reviewing a small number of reports of bleeding, blood clots, and low platelet counts in people who have received AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has said it has so far found no causal link between the vaccine and the incidents. The World Health Organization has also said there was no proven link and people should not panic.

At least 13 European Union (EU) member states including Germany, France, and Italy have suspended use of the shot pending the outcome of EMA’s probe.

Here’s what we know so far:

WHAT HAS HAPPENED?
More than 45 million coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) shots by all manufacturers have been administered across the EU and the European Economic Area since vaccinations started almost three months ago.

Ruth Darby: A Multirole Leader with Extensive Work Experience

Real estate has always been considered a male dominated sector, and is making progress towards acknowledging women participation, and moving towards that change. Over the years, the real estate sector has grown considerably. With the sector getting more organized, there has been increased global penetration into the local markets and increased service offerings. In this scenario, limiting the sector to only one section of the population, also curbs the available resources and talent base that is required to take the sector forward. The extension of companies and the need for talent, inspired the inclusion of more women into the segment. One such woman leader is Ruth Darby, Member at Keyser, who plays multiple roles at the company. As a broker, she represents both single location tenants and large global corporate accounts.

Ruth has over 21 years of comprehensive commercial real estate experience working with, national corporate clients, and Read the rest

Fast food giant Jollibee targets foreign expansion after COVID

Jollibee Foods Corp., the largest Philippine restaurant operator, is looking toward foreign expansion and “opportunities” created by COVID-19 as it rebounds after historic losses induced by the pandemic.

After a restructure amid last year’s setback, Jollibee CEO Ernesto Tanmantiong plans to open 450 restaurants around the world this year while looking for acquisitions that could be funded with the company’s 57.5 billion pesos ($1.2 billion) in cash and short-term investments.

Tanmantiong still hopes to achieve a long-term goal of turning the Manila-based company into one of the world’s top five restaurant operators. Jollibee posted a P11.5 billion net loss last year — its first annual loss in at least three decades — as dining out was hammered by the virus.

“There are opportunities coming out of the pandemic,” Tanmantiong said in a Bloomberg interview. “We are constantly assessing these opportunities.”

Jollibee, like restaurant chains around the world, faces a landscape … Read the rest

Lagging vaccination rate puts Canadian factories at competitive disadvantage

Canadian automation company Promation had been banking on a weaker currency to help it win a new US contract, but a slower pace of vaccinations in Canada could erase that competitive edge, President Darryl Spector said.

Pandemic travel restrictions make it harder for Promation’s technicians to travel across the border to service and repair plant equipment, a drawback when competing against an increasingly vaccinated US workforce.

“With a fully vaccinated U.S. supply base, why buy from Canada if you can’t access the labor to support it?,” said Mr. Spector.

To prevent spread of the coronavirus, the US-Canadian border has been closed for nearly a year to crossings by all but essential workers and a handful of other exceptions. In Canada, manufacturers fear the slower vaccination rollout could delay an easing of those restrictions.

US President Joseph R. Biden, Jr., told states on Thursday to make all adults eligible for a Read the rest

Japan leaning towards ending Tokyo state of emergency on March 21

TOKYO – Japan’s government is leaning towards ending a state of emergency for Tokyo and surrounding areas over COVID-19 as scheduled on March 21, the Sankei newspaper reported on Sunday.

The government is expected to make its decision at a meeting with advisers on March 18, Sankei reported. Calls to the prime minister’s office were not answered.

The number of hospital beds in use to treat COVID-19 patients is falling gradually, which is justification to end the state of emergency as scheduled, the Sankei said, citing an unnamed government official.

Restrictions such as shorter business hours for restaurants and bars have helped reduce new daily cases in Tokyo to roughly a tenth of a peak of 2,520 on Jan. 7, but the number of new infections in Tokyo has been creeping up in recent days, raising concerns that the state of emergency might be extended.
