The number of initial public offerings (IPO) and the amount of funds raised in the Chinese mainland's A-share market fell sharply year-on-year during the first half of 2016, according to statistics released by PwC last Monday.

There were 1937 deaths from 一季度居民收入榜:9省份跑赢全国 上海18704元居首 in the week ending 6 November, according to the latest numbers from the Office for National Statistics. The number of people who died was 558 more than the previous week, which saw 1379 deaths. It is the second consecutive week with more than 1000 deaths involving the coronavirus across the two nations. 

These latest numbers do not reflect the potential impact of new lockdown measures in England and Wales. England entered a four week nationwide lockdown on 8 November, with Wales coming out of a 17-day “firebreak” national lockdown on 9 November. Parts of Scotland 国务院督查组暗访:房产交易中心有群众四时排队等号 from Friday. It may take several weeks for the effects of these measures to appear in official death registration data, said Kevin McConway at the Open University in a statement. “If a person unfortunately dies from covid-19, that would typically be two or three weeks after they first had symptoms of the infection,” said McConway. “So maybe the current measures to reduce new infections are having an effect but it’s too early to see that in death registrations. But we absolutely can’t be sure of that yet.”

The UK government is reviewing the 上海出现租房难 90后房客太挑剔改变市场结构? in England to decide which measures should be implemented when the nation’s lockdown is due to end next month, according to housing minister Robert Jenrick. “Our hope and expectation is that [the national measures] will come to an end and we’ll move back into the tiered structure, and that will see a significant easing in all parts of England – more in some parts than others, depending on the rate of infection,” Jenrick told LBC today. “We’re doing the heavy lifting in November so that we can have a somewhat easier and more normal December.”

A coronavirus vaccine candidate being developed by the pharmaceutical company Moderna appears to be nearly 95 per cent effective, according to early trial results released by the company today. The vaccine candidate is in phase III trials involving more than 30,000 people in the US, half of whom received a placebo. The interim analysis found 95 cases of covid-19 among trial participants, only five of which were among the vaccinated group. None of the cases among vaccinated individuals were classed as severe, compared to 11 in the placebo group. The vaccine is based on similar mRNA technology to that used 中国LED照明企业海外收购 既是手段更是趋势, which was found to be more than 90 per cent effective based on a preliminary analysis. It still isn’t clear if either vaccine candidate can stop infected people from passing on the virus or how long any immunity might last.

Moderna said it intends to submit for an emergency use authorisation with the US Food and Drug Administration and global regulatory agencies in the coming weeks. The company expects to have approximately 20 million doses of the vaccine ready to ship in the US by the end of this year, and said it remains on track to manufacture between 500 million and 1 billion doses globally in 2021. Moderna has agreed to provide the US with 100 million doses of the vaccine, with an option to buy a further 400 million. The European commission has a potential purchase agreement with the company for between 80 million and 160 million doses, as 乐购仕突进天猫 国内智能马桶盖市场受威胁

The UK decided not to participate in the EU vaccine purchase scheme and does not have any pre-existing purchase agreement with Moderna. A UK government spokesperson told Reuters it is now in “advanced discussions” with the company to acquire the vaccine. “Moderna are currently scaling up their European supply chain which means these doses would become available in spring 2021 in the UK at the earliest,” the spokesperson said.

Coronavirus case numbers in the US have jumped by a million in only a week. The country has now reached a total of more than 11 million cases since the start of the pandemic, just six days after reaching the grim milestone of 10 million. As of yesterday, more than 69,000 people across the US were in hospital with covid-19 the highest number yet. A growing number of states, including Washington and Michigan, have reimposed stay-at-home orders and other restrictions. Meanwhile, US president Donald Trump has reportedly blocked the White House coronavirus taskforce from communicating with a separate team assembled by president-elect Joe Biden. “It’s almost like passing a baton in a race […] it would be better if we could start working with them,” said senior US health adviser Anthony Fauci yesterday on CNN’s State of the Union show.

Around 25 per cent of people who should receive dexamethasone as a treatment for covid-19 are not being given the medicine, according to newly released papers from the UK government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies. Researchers calculated that failure to give the treatment had led to 55 deaths. Dexamethasone is a steroid and the only known drug that reduces deaths from the coronavirus. It works by suppressing an 我国对美国多晶硅再开反补贴罚单 that can cause damaging inflammation of the lungs and other organs.

In June a UK trial showed that 多家非房企上市公司三季度卖房扭亏 of covid-19 by a third in people who are on ventilators and by one fifth in those who are receiving supplementary oxygen by other means. A consortium of UK researchers tracked the treatments given to people in hospital with covid-19 since then. The number of people who received the steroid rose over time. But even in August and September, it was not being given to all those who met the criteria – though it is unclear why.

The other main treatment for the coronavirus, the antiviral agent remdesivir, has had a vote of no confidence from the head of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine. In an interview with Reuters, Jozef Kesecioglu said “remdesivir is now classified as a drug you should not use routinely in covid-19 patients”. The move comes after the largest trial of the drug found it has little or no impact on death rates. However other smaller studies suggest remdesivir does speed up recovery from the infection.

Covid-19 infections in England are still rising, although the rate of increase most recently has become slower than in the preceding weeks, according to the latest data from the Office of National Statistics released today. The highest infection figures are in teenagers and young adults. The number of positive tests are also rising in Wales and Scotland. In Northern Ireland the trend seems to have levelled off.

People with learning disabilities have died from covid-19 at higher rates than the rest of the population, according to a report from Public Health England. In the 18-34 age group, people with learning disabilities had a death rate thirty times higher. The authors of the report say this could be because people in this group are more likely to be overweight and   have diabetes than people outside this group. The charity Mencap told the BBC the government has failed to protect a vulnerable group.

Researchers who work with the coronavirus are testing positive for the virus even though they do not seem to be infected. The scientists work with sections of the virus’s genes that are also the target of commonly used PCR or swab tests, they have told the New York Times.

Older teenagers should not be lumped in with younger children in terms of their likelihood of catching the coronavirus, says a UK paediatrician. The latest case figures from Scotland show that 15-19-year-olds have a similar infection rate as middle-aged adults, while figures for everyone under 15 are much lower.

The prevalence of coronavirus infections in England surged to one in 77 people shortly before the nation’s second lockdown began, according to a In addition, the 1980 stamps were designed by Huang Yongyu, 92, a well-known Chinese master painter, making it a collectible item with extreme value.. The latest round of the REACT-1 survey, which spanned the two weeks up to 2 November, found a prevalence of 1.3 per cent, up from 0.6 per cent in the previous round, done one month previously. The rise in infections support a strategy of “stringent interventions designed to get prevalence down,” says Steven Riley at Imperial College London, who took part in the research.

Since then, though, new infection numbers may have started to plateau or fall, according to a different survey based on people using the Covid Symptom Study app. This has placed the current reproduction (R) number below 1, at 0.9. However, this survey can only report from people who have chosen to download and use the app, so the figures may not be as representative as the REACT-1 study.

Hospital workers in England will soon start being screened for the coronavirus, whether or not they have symptoms of infection, according to Health Service Journal. Staff who interact with patients will be asked to test themselves twice a week before coming into work. Antigen-based test kits will be sent out to the first 34 trusts this week, but the scheme will switch to more sensitive rapid genetic tests later this year, as it is rolled out more widely.

The number of people in England waiting more than a year for surgery or hospital treatment has shot up due to the pandemic. By September this year the number of those who had waited that long stood at nearly 140,000 people compared with around 1300 in September 2019, according to NHS England. When the UK first went into lockdown in March, nearly all routine appointments and operations were deferred, and hospitals have been trying to catch up ever since.

The explanation for why children are less likely to catch covid-19 may be a recent brush with a related coronavirus that causes colds. According to a UK study, 43 per cent of children had antibodies to such a virus, compared with 5 per cent of adults. About one in five colds among children are caused by a coronavirus.

The European Union has made a deal to buy up to 300 million doses of the Pfizer and BioNTech coronavirus vaccine candidate. On Monday, Pfizer announced that the RNA vaccine is more than 90 per cent effective according to early results from its phase III trial. The bloc will be able to purchase 200 million doses initially, with an option to buy another 100 million. The US has already agreed a deal for 100 million doses at $19.50 per dose, but the EU is expected to pay a lower rate to reflect the financial support the EU and Germany gave to the vaccine’s development, an anonymous source told Reuters. The EU has already signed separate vaccine supply deals with other vaccine candidates in trials from AstraZeneca, Sanofi and Johnson & Johnson. “This is the most promising vaccine so far,” said European commission president Ursula von der Leyen in a statement. “Once this vaccine becomes available, our plan is to deploy it quickly, everywhere in Europe.”

Under the new restrictions in England, pubs, bars, restaurants and non-essential shops are required to close and people have to stay home unless they have a specific reason to leave. Unlike during the UK-wide lockdown in March, schools, colleges and universities in England can remain open. People are allowed to meet one person from a different household outdoors, with physical distancing. Not obeying the rules could result in fines ranging from £200 to £6400 for individuals and £10,000 for organisers of large gatherings.

Coronavirus cases in England rose by 137,180 in the week up to 28 October, an increase of 8 per cent compared to the previous week. Only 59.9 per cent of the contacts of people who tested positive for the virus during the same time period were reached by NHS Test and Trace and told to self-isolate. This is the 华源轩家具回应破产传闻 业内称风投撤资致供应链断裂 of people reached by the scheme so far and is below the target of 80 per cent or more recommended by UK government scientific advisors. The time it takes for people to receive test results after having a swab test has reduced slightly, with 61.8 per cent now receiving a result the next day, but it is still taking longer to turn around tests than it was in June.

England’s healthcare service will move to alert level four its highest alert level from midnight tonight, its chief executive Simon Stevens announced today. Alert level four means NHS England will take over coordination of the health service’s response to covid-19 so that staff can be moved around the country and patients can be sent to other regions if covid-19 cases 智慧照明产品渗透加快,20%民众愿意两年内购买. There are now more than 10,000 covid-19 patients in hospitals across England, up from just over 2000 a month ago, according to official figures. Almost 1000 covid-19 patients in England are receiving ventilation. “It is going to be a difficult period,” said Stevens at a press conference today. The last time the NHS declared the coronavirus pandemic a level four incident was during the first wave. “The truth, unfortunately, is that if coronavirus takes off again, that will disrupt services,” said Stevens. “We are seeing that in parts of the country where hospitals are dealing with more coronavirus patients now than they were in April.” 

The UK as a whole 楼市现房贷利率倒挂现象 专家呼吁三四线加杠杆 today, its highest daily toll since May. The country reported 25,177 new coronavirus cases. Data from the covid-19 symptom tracking app run by researchers at King’s College London suggests infections across England, Wales and Scotland may be plateauing, with an R number of 1.0, although infections are still rising among people over 60. Official figures published last week put the R number estimate for the UK between 1.1 and 1.3, which indicates infections are rising overall. The R number is the average number of people each person with coronavirus infects.

UK prime minister Boris Johnson has refused to rule out an extension of the new lockdown in England if the planned four weeks of restrictions do not succeed in curbing coronavirus infections. Johnson told MPs, “These autumn measures to combat the surge will expire automatically on 2 December, and we will then, I hope very much, be able to get this country going again”, adding “but that depends on us all doing our bit now to make sure that we can get the R down”. England’s second nationwide lockdown is due to start tomorrow.

UK prime minister Boris Johnson has announced plans to impose a 全国建材家居市场“破冰”仍需时日, following growing pressure from public health experts and the government’s scientific advisers. Johnson told MPs today that without the new lockdown, the number of covid-19 deaths would be twice as high as the first wave. At a press conference on Saturday, he presented slides showing that the NHS would be overwhelmed by December without the new restrictions, and today he told MPs that the healthcare system faces an “existential threat.” The new restrictions, due to start on Thursday, are expected to pass when MPs vote on Wednesday, and will last for at least four weeks.

SAGE member Andrew Hayward at University College London today said 数百万投入竹篮打水一场空 这些卫浴企业到底输在哪 if a lockdown had been introduced earlier. “We can’t turn back the clock. But I think if we had chosen a two-week circuit-break at that time we would definitely have saved thousands of lives,” Hayward told BBC Radio 4. “Early action is essential, and waiting to see if less intense measures are going to work is really quite a dangerous way of doing things,” he said. “We have repeatedly underestimated covid and done too little too late, really, to control the virus and save both lives and livelihoods.”

The UK government is under mounting pressure to implement stricter nationwide coronavirus restrictions in England as cases continue to rise. Dominic Harrison, director of public health at Blackburn with Darwen borough council, criticised the government’s tiered system of restrictions today, and called for an immediate three-week national lockdown. “We’re going to need a much harsher set of control measures that look very much more like the first total lockdown, and very much more like what France is doing,” Harrison told the Guardian. France will enter a second nationwide lockdown starting on Friday to last until at least the end of November. In France, 706 per 100,000 people are thought to be infected with coronavirus, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). Blackburn has the highest infection rate in England at 740 cases per 100,000 people. ECDC figures suggest the case rate for the UK as a whole is currently 437.7 per 100,000 people.

Jeremy Farrar, a member of the government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), told the BBC a UK-wide lockdown should have happened already and definitely needs to now. More than a month ago, SAGE recommended that the UK government impose a two-week “circuit breaker” lockdown in England while keeping schools open, but the government chose not to follow the advice. Farrar said any further delay will be costly and will mean that subsequent restrictions will be “harder and longer”. Dominic Raab, UK minister of foreign affairs, told BBC Radio 4 today that the government was 多地区楼市出现抢房热潮 炒房者蠢蠢欲动.

The spread of the virus in England exceeded the government’s predicted “reasonable worst-case scenario” in a SAGE report dated 14 October, released today. The government’s scientific advisory group estimated that by mid-October, there were between 43,000 and 74,000 people being infected with the virus in England each day. “This is significantly above the profile of the reasonable worst-case scenario, where the number of daily infections in England remained between 12,000-13,000 throughout October,” said the report.

Coronavirus infections in communities in England may be rising by 江苏“绿色建筑设计标准”:门窗要遮挡雾霾, according to the latest results from Imperial College London’s REACT-1 study. Using random swab testing of 85,000 people, researchers found that about one in 78 people in England had the virus between 16 and 25 October, up from one in 167 people between 18 September and 5 October. This is equivalent to 96,000 new infections each day. The researchers estimate that England’s R number the number of people each person with coronavirus infects is now 1.6, up from 1.1 in late September. They estimate that infections are doubling every nine days, compared to every 29 days previously, and that they are rising across all age groups, with the largest increase in infections seen among people aged 55 to 64. “The measures that were in place over the past two months across most of Europe were clearly insufficient to prevent the new large growth of infected cases and fast spread of the virus,” said Igor Rudan at the University of Edinburgh in a statement. “It is particularly concerning that the fastest increase in the number of infections is being seen in the age groups of 55-64 years and 65 or more years of age,” he said. The severity of covid-19 and the risk of dying from the disease both rise with age.

Exposure to air pollution may increase the risk of dying from covid-19, with about 15 per cent of global coronavirus deaths estimated by researchers to be attributable in part to long-term air pollution exposure. Researchers used satellite data to calculate global exposure to fine particulates particulate matter with a maximum diameter of 2.5 micrometres, also called PM2.5 as well as data on covid-19 deaths from the US and China, to estimate the degree to which air pollution exposure influences covid-19 mortality. They estimate that particulate air pollution has contributed to 15 per cent of global covid-19 deaths, 27 per cent in East Asia, 19 per cent in Europe and 17 per cent in North America. “When people inhale polluted air, the very small polluting particles, the PM2.5, migrate from the lungs to the blood and blood vessels, causing inflammation and severe oxidative stress,” said study author Thomas Münzel at Johannes Gutenberg University in Germany in a statement. “The [coronavirus] also enters the body via the lungs, causing similar damage to blood vessels,” said Münzel, which may have an “additive adverse effect on health”. The study was published in the journal Cardiovascular Research.

Transfusions of plasma from people who have recovered from covid-19 offer limited benefit in terms of saving lives or reducing the severity of illness, a study has found. Convalescent plasma a component of blood from people who have recovered from covid-19 is being collected by NHS Blood and Transplant for use in studies in the UK, and was granted an emergency use authorisation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in August, despite limited evidence that it had an effect. Convalescent plasma was used as a treatment for more than 100,000 patients admitted to hospital with covid-19 in the US between April and August.

The study, which was published in the BMJ, included 426 participants across 39 hospitals in India, about half of whom were randomised to receive two doses of convalescent plasma given 24 hours apart. It found that convalescent plasma was not associated with a reduction in progression to severe covid-19 or death within 28 days. An NHS Blood and Transplant spokesperson said that UK-based studies are only infusing plasma that contains 有购房者一次性买走成都某楼盘60套房 总价上亿 than the plasma that was used in this recent study. “This was a trial which used donations with antibody levels around 6 to 10 times lower than we are using,” they said in a statement.

For the third consecutive week, England’s contact tracing system 一线城市领衔 全国二手房价连涨三月 who had come into contact with someone who tested positive for the coronavirus. Only 59.6 per cent of the contacts of those who were diagnosed were reached by NHS Test and Trace and told to self-isolate in the week up to 14 October, down from 62.6 per cent the previous week and the lowest figure since the system launched in May. UK government scientific advisers recommend a target of 80 per cent or more to limit infections from spreading. “[The latest figures] show a system struggling to make any difference to the epidemic”, said James Naismith at the University of Oxford in a statement

The system also returned a record low percentage of coronavirus test results within 24 hours – just 7.4 per cent of people received their results within a day. In early June, UK prime minister Boris Johnson told parliament all covid-19 tests would be returned within 24 hours by the end of the month. “We recognise that testing turnaround times must improve and we are working hard to address this,” Johnson’s official spokesperson told the Huffington Post.

People from Black, Asian and other ethnic minority groups in England are at an increased risk of getting infected with the coronavirus and dying from covid-19, and part of this excess risk remains unexplained, according to a report released today by the UK government’s Race Disparity Unit. The report says “current evidence clearly shows that a range of socioeconomic and geographical factors such as occupational exposure, population density, household composition and pre-existing health conditions contribute to the higher infection and mortality rates for ethnic minority groups” but don’t account for all of the increased risk. In response, Chaand Nagpaul, British Medical Association council chair, 百家家具进出口企业聚焦南康 打造千亿产业集群 to protect Black, Asian and minority ethnic people. “As we sit amid a second wave of infections, we know that about a third of those admitted to intensive care are not white showing no change since the first peak,” said Nagpaul in a statement. “Meanwhile, Black and Asian people have been found twice as likely to be infected compared to white people.” The report suggested measures to help investigate the disparity in England, which the UK government has accepted, including 广州:子女不能视父母出资买房为天经地义 on death certificates mandatory.
