Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Covid Update: Chile’s New Lockdown, Novavax Delays Vaccine Deal; Juncker Blasts ‘Vaccine War'” – below is their description.

More than half a billion Covid-19 vaccine doses have been administered worldwide, according to the Bloomberg Vaccine Tracker. President Joe Biden set a goal of administering 200 million doses by the end of April, doubling his target for his first 100 days in office.

California became the latest state to make vaccinations available to all adults, starting with people 50 and over starting April 1, and those 16 and older two weeks later. Florida and North California also announced dates for vaccinating all adults before Biden’s May 1 deadline.

Covid cases in the U.S. are rising again, reversing course after months of decline and threatening another setback in the return to normality. Brazil reported more than 100,000 daily cases, breaking a record.
