(Bloomberg) -- A World Health Organization team looking into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic is set to arrive in China, after the country last week delayed its entry.

Malaysia’s king declared a state of emergency, in a move that allows embattled Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin to avoid facing an election until the pandemic is over. South Korean cases remained below 1,000 for an eighth straight day, while India reported the lowest number of infections since June.

Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE raised their vaccine production target for this year to 2 billion shots, from 1.3 billion previously. U.S. daily vaccinations, which have been slow due to an uneven rollout, rose by a record 1.25 million.
