BRUSSELS (REUTERS) - The Belgian government will convene on Friday (Oct 30) to decide on a potential new national lockdown with the country now suffering the highest rate of coronavirus infections per 100,000 citizens, according to official data. The nation of 11 million people had 1,390 new Covid-19 infections per 100,000 residents over the past two weeks, data from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control showed on Tuesday. The Czech Republic is next with 1,379 per 100,000, while many other European countries are reporting soaring infection rates in a second wave of the global pandemic abetted by the onset of cold, damp winter weather. New daily infections in Belgium, where the European Union and Nato have their headquarters, hit a peak of more than 18,000 on Oct 20, almost a 10-fold rise from the high of a spring wave of the pandemic. The number of patients in intensive care units (ICUs) is doubling every eight days - to 809 as of Monday - with 5,260 people in hospitals, which risk running out of beds. Belgian foreign affairs minister and former PM Sophie Wilmes was still in intensive care in Brussels, after testing positive
LVMH and Tiffany & Co. are hoping to kiss and make up ahead of a dramatic court battle over their $16 billion proposed marriage, The Post has learned. The luxury conglomerate and the storied New York jeweler are renegotiating the terms of their proposed union after LVMH tried to walk away last month — sparking a heated legal battle that’s poised to go to trial in January, sources said. The new terms would see LVMH, the company behind luxury brands like Louis Vuitton and Fendi, purchase Tiffany for $130 to $133 per share, according to CNBC, a slight discount from the original price of $135 per share that the companies settled on last year. Each dollar that’s knocked off the per-share purchase price would save LVMH about $121 million based on Tiffany’s number of outstanding shares. Tiffany has indicated that it’s open to a lower price as long as it isn’t less than $130 per share and LVMH closes the deal without changing any more terms, according to the Financial Times, which first reported on the renegotiations Tuesday. LVMH declined to comment on the reported talks. Tiffany did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The developments came a day after
Combination of Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter and Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google. Reuters The CEOs of Facebook, Google and Twitter will face lawmakers once again on Wednesday — this time to defend the legal liability shield that underpins their business models. For Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google's Sundar Pichai, it will be their second time testifying before Congress this year, following July's antitrust hearing in the House. For Zuckerberg and Twitter's Jack Dorsey, it will be the first of two sessions before Congress within the next month. The two agreed to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee in November after Republican members voted to authorize subpoenas. Like the antitrust hearing, Wednesday's Senate Commerce Committee testimony has the potential to be bruising for the tech companies because nearly every lawmaker has an interest in it. Republicans and Democrats on the committee have expressed shared concerns over the way tech companies moderate -- or fail to moderate -- content on their platforms without repercussions, misused users' data and impacted local news organizations. "I think that there is more common ground than people realize,"
