(Bloomberg) -- A doctors’ group in the U.K. has urged the government to review the 12 weeks allowed for people to receive a second dose of the vaccine produced by Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE. The manufacturer suggests 21 days.

Meanwhile, France’s top health authority recommends doubling that three-week gap as a way to stretch supplies and speed inoculations.

Sweden’s prime minister said his government’s response to the pandemic fell short, contributing to a disproportionately high number of deaths. Norway locked down the Oslo area, imposing the strictest measures since March.

American broadcaster Larry King has died. Though no cause was given, he had recently received treatment for Covid-19.
