“For almost 50 years of public service, I have never publicly endorsed a single political candidate. Used without my permission, words in a GOP ad campaign were taken out of context for a statement I made a few months ago about federal efforts to combat the pandemic, ”Fauci said.

Banks are closing branches in the Czech Republic. The fastest in 12 years, says the economist

Data from the Czech National Bank (CNB) show that in the first half of this year, banks’ net profit fell to 26.57 billion crowns. That’s about 19 billion less than last year. According to Kovanda, the reason for such a huge decline is the coronavirus epidemic, which hit the banks hard. Simultaneously with the closure of stone branches, the speed with which banks are switching to online communication with clients is growing.

In response to the consequences of the pandemic and the necessary measures associated with it, the banks have hastily accelerated the closure of stone branches. “At the end of this year’s first half of the year, the number of banking positions in the Czech Republic dropped to 1761. Compared to the end of March this year, 116 banking positions have decreased,” said the economist.

This is the highest decline between quarters since 2008. Year-on-year, about 8.3 percent of bank branches decreased, the highest in the last 11 years. According to experts, the rapid decline in profits is not only a problem for the Czechia, it is said to be a global problem.

Its primary reason is the uncertainty and fear of the effects of the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. Companies are so hesitant to invest because they are not sure that the money will be returned to them. Demand for credit is also falling, and growing tensions between China and the United States are not helping.

“Central banks, including the CNB, want to make lending as easy as possible in such an environment, so they lower their key interest rates. However, they reduce the profitability of banks’ lending activities – normally measured by the net interest margin,” Kovanda described.

According to him, the profits of banks are also reduced by moratoriums (deferral of maturities) on loan repayments, which the Czech government introduced as one of the measures to combat the economic effects of the pandemic. According to economists, the situation in the Czech Republic is still relatively favorable compared to, for example, Italy.

Coronavirus Vaccine Makers Preparing Joint Statement on Safety, Standards

The three drug companies developing vaccines for COVID-19 are considering issuing a joint public statement that they will not seek emergency governmental approval until there is “substantial evidence of safety and efficacy” of their inoculations, The Wall Street Journal is reporting.

The move comes as vaccines are reportedly being readied for regulatory review as early as October and Democrats raise fears the Trump administration is pressuring the Food and Drug Administration to approve them.

The companies, including Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna, could issue the statement as soon as early next week, the Journal said, citing two unidentified sources “familiar with the matter.”

“We believe this pledge will help ensure public confidence in the Covid-19 vaccines that may ultimately be approved and adherence to the rigorous scientific and regulatory process by which they are evaluated,” the draft statement says.

A Gallup poll release in early August said more than one-third of Americans, 35%, would not get the vaccine if it was “available right now.”

Dozens of legal proceedings have taken place or are ongoing in all facilities, ”the headquarters noted. “We can only guess about the motives of the current statement of Mr. Iggeji. We are carefully studying the situation regarding the possibility of filing a lawsuit against Mr. Igdeji for the protection of honor, dignity and business reputation as a result of the dissemination of false information, ”said Tepkalo at the headquarters.
