(Reuters) - U.S. automaker Ford Motor Co.
For 2020, the company expects to further cut down its China losses, before interest and taxes, by nearly half that of what it expects to post for 2019.

However, most flights and trains, including the high-speed link to Barcelona, have resumed operations.

By Ludwig Burger FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Pfizer Inc's partner BioNTech SE has boosted the 2021 delivery target for their COVID-19 vaccine to 2 billion doses, up from 1.3 billion previously, as they add new production lines and as more doses can be extracted per vial. Special syringes known as low dead space syringes allow for extraction of six vaccine doses from a standard vial, instead of the usual five, avoiding wasting unused liquid left in a syringe. That would result in 1 billion people getting the designated two-dose regimen, BioNTech said on Monday in a presentation for the annual JP Morgan healthcare conference being held virtually this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
