Since the COVID-19 surge began in October, the number of deaths has surged. It took six months for the state to record the death of the 10,000th person. But in less than a month, the total rose from 20,000 to 30,000.

Germany’s BioNTech company has developed the first COVID-19 vaccine on the market in cooperation with its US partner Pfizer. The company said it expects to produce 2 billion doses of vaccine by 2021 with the expansion of production scale.
The company’s CEO and co-founder Ugur Sahin said that the company expects that the number of doses promised this fiscal year will be approximately doubled due to the upcoming operations or launches of three manufacturing sites in the United States and three manufacturing sites in Europe.
The company said in a speech at the annual JP Morgan Medical Conference held on Monday that the company also hopes to expand the population that can be vaccinated, including pregnant women and children.
As of January 10, the company said it had shipped 32.9 million doses of vaccine. The vaccine has an effective rate of 95% in the test.
The company’s vaccines must currently be stored at extremely low temperatures, which makes it difficult to transport to remote areas. But the company said it is developing a more stable version.

On Monday, the stock market was declining due to record strong trading on Wall Street and global stock markets.
The S&P 500 Index fell 0.3% in afternoon trading and took a breather from the four-day losing streak, which brought it to a record high. As of 12:41 pm Eastern Time, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 30 points, or 0.1%, to 31,067, and the Nasdaq Composite Index fell 0.6%.
Analysts said that after the wave of optimism, after the recent surge in stocks to bond yields to commodities, it is not surprising that there has been a correction. As Democrats begin to control Washington, investors expect Congress to try as soon as possible to provide more stimulus to the economy by increasing cash payments for Americans and other programs. This is built on enthusiasm, which has been built on the strong economic recovery with the launch of the COVID-19 vaccine later this year.
