(Bloomberg) --

Australia said it will seek information from Pfizer Inc. and health authorities in Norway, after the Nordic nation expressed increasing concern about the safety of the vaccine on elderly people with serious underlying health conditions. Norway raised its estimate of the number who died after receiving inoculations to 29.

New cases in the U.S. slowed, and infections in New York state fell from a record. Confirmed Covid-19 cases in the greater Los Angeles area have surpassed 1 million, though county scientists estimate actual infections are three times higher.

Louisiana became the latest U.S. state to report a case of the more transmissible coronavirus variant first found in the U.K., while California Representative Lou Correa tested positive for Covid-19.

The U.K. reported fatalities above 1,200 for the fifth consecutive day.
