  Inside a facility that could mass produce a COVID-19 vaccine The facility could start filling vials with a vaccine as early as November, maybe even before a vaccine has been approved. That's because as soon as they get that final approval, they want to be sending it out to the public."These are unprecedented times and require unprecedented initiatives," said managing director of Wockhardt UK Ravi Limaye.Limaye told Williams his facility can produce up to 240 million doses of a new vaccine in a year.But if the vaccine they start producing doesn't get approved for safety, they'll simply have to throw it out.

(Bloomberg) -- Traffic congestion in London remains high despite the British government this week urging office staff to go back to home-working, a development that suggests the U.K.’s recovery in fuel consumption may continue.

London’s streets were 3% more congested on Wednesday than they were on average last year, according to data from satellite navigation firm TomTom International BV. The jams were similar to those observed on Tuesday and Monday, and higher than a week earlier.

It confirmed the weekend's enormous donation sum in a message shared to Twitter on Sunday morning.

The U.K. government on Tuesday asked office workers to return to home-working where possible to contain the spread of coronavirus and some big banks said they would pause the return of staff into their offices. It’s unclear, however, whether those who already returned have been asked to go back to working from home. Morning rush hour traffic in London continued to be higher on Thursday than a week ago, another signal that many are still driving into the city.

The recovery in London commuter traffic -- good news for the oil market but bad news for the planet -- accelerated significantly in early September with the start of the school year and several companies offering employees cash incentives to use their cars or take taxis to work, rather than public transport.

In the first three days of this week, London suffered traffic jams about 3% higher than the 2019 average, the highest weekly average since early March, when the U.K. was on the cusp of going into lockdown, according to TomTom’s data.
