Most of us are pretty good at coming up with excuses while we put off doing important things. Our tires might need more air, for example, but it looks like rain today, so maybe we'll aim to fill them tomorrow.

Click VRUS on the terminal for news and data on the coronavirus.Spanish Region Locked Down (8 a.m. HK)Spain’s Catalan government has put the Segria region and its capital Lleida under lockdown to contain an outbreak. The number of cases in the region of 210,000 has soared 20% in the past two weeks to 3,312. Four of nine outbreaks currently being monitored by authorities are associated to companies harvesting and processing fruit and vegetables.The lockdown won’t impact the current harvest season, but Alba Verges, head of the regional department of health, called for agriculture workers to limit their social activities. The precarious conditions that these workers often live in make controlling the outbreaks more difficult, Verges said. These temporary workers, many of them African migrants, are often hired by the day, paid very low salaries and live in crowded spaces or even on the streets.“We have taken exceptional public health measures in this region because the data makes us think that contagion is much greater than in the rest of the country,” Verges said. “Social activities need to be reduced, both in the number of meetings and in the number of people.”Iran Soccer Players Positive (6:55 a.m. NY)At least two dozen players and staff members in Iran’s professional soccer league tested positive, media reported on Saturday.

Bharat Biotech International Ltd., an unlisted Indian vaccine maker, got regulatory approval to start human clinical trials for its experimental shot earlier this week.Europe Needs to Improve Preparations: Sanofi CEO (4 p.m. HK)Europe needs to spend between 500 million euros ($562 million) and 1 billion euros a year to be prepared to face pandemics on its own, a relatively small sum compared with the spending under consideration to save economies, according to Sanofi Chief Executive Officer Paul Hudson.“There is no pandemic preparedness in Europe,” he told an economics conference in Paris Saturday. “We can’t rely on the U.S. or China, they will follow their own path.”Hudson stuck to the drugmaker’s target of having a Covid-19 vaccine next year, saying that it may be a little later than some of the estimated 100 other companies in the race.“We’re the only company that is using a platform that has been used before and we feel very confident that we’ll be a little bit later -- first half of 2021 -- but that it’ll work,” he said. “I’m competitive but I’m happy to lose this race because if somebody gets there and can vaccinate everybody and people can get back to the new normal, that’s amazing.”Russian Death Toll Exceeds 10,000 (3:50 p.m. HK)Russia registered 168 new deaths from coronavirus, bringing the total to 10,027.

Withdrawing money from a 401(k) before age 59 1/2 is usually an extremely expensive proposition since you're hit with a 10% tax penalty on your early distribution. The CARES Act aimed to change that by allowing you to take a penalty-free withdrawal of up to $100,000, or 100% of your vested account balance -- whichever is less. While this special rule applies only to COVID-19 related distributions in 2020, it takes some of the sting out if you have to tap your retirement accounts early.

Boeing has signalled the end for the 747 jumbo jet. That's according to sources speaking Friday (July 3). They said the planemaker and its suppliers set the final number of parts it would need for the 747 program at least a year ago. The plane helped democratize global air travel in the 1970s and celebrated its 50-year flying anniversary in 2019. But Boeing's so-called 'Queen of the Skies' fell behind modern twin-engine aircraft in more recent years. The program has seen falling orders and pricing pressures. The virus outbreak also crushed passenger travel and demand for new jets. A cargo market boom fuelled by online shopping kept the plane alive during the last few years...just about. The last order for a passenger version came in 2017. That when the U.S. government asked Boeing to repurpose two jetliners for use as Air Force One by the President. Boeing has refused to confirm whether it is ending the 747 program. If it goes ahead it could mean charges and layoffs for stopping production at its wide-body plant outside Seattle.
