U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said more than a third of the population has received a first dose of the coronavirus vaccine as deaths from the disease continue to fall.Key Developments:Global Tracker: Cases pass 117 million; deaths approach 2.6 millionVaccine Tracker: More than 306 million shots given worldwideU.S. Spotlight: Variant’s spread in Florida shows threat to recovery‘Hassle factor’ and distrust shadow wide U.S. vaccine hesitancyCelebratory ‘vaxications’ are giving the travel industry a boostHow the pandemic darkens the picture on women’s pay: QuickTakeSubscribe to a daily update on the virus from Bloomberg’s Prognosis team here.

Economists had forecast a revised growth rate of 12.6%.Airlines Urge U.S. to Develop Virus Passport (8 a.m. HK)U.S. airlines, joined by travel groups and labor, urged the Biden administration to take the lead in developing standards for temporary Covid-19 health credentials that would help reopen global travel by documenting vaccinations and test results.The U.S. “must be a leader” in efforts already underway in other regions to implement such travel passports, groups including Airlines for America said in a letter Monday to Jeffrey Zients, the head of President Joe Biden’s Covid-19 recovery team. It’s essential for the government to partner with carriers and the travel industry “to quickly develop” standards, they said.U.K. Variant Found in More Houston Wastewater (5:05 p.m. NY)The Covid-19 U.K. variant has spread to 79% of Houston’s wastewater treatment plants, alarming city officials concerned about a new surge in infections.As of Feb. 22 -- the most-recent date for which data was available -- the variant was found in 31 of the city’s 39 treatment sites, according to David Persse, Houston’s director of emergency medical services. That’s up from 21 plants, or 54%, two weeks earlier, Persse said.The announcement comes just two days before a statewide mask mandate and other business restrictions aimed at curbing the pandemic will be lifted under an order by Governor Greg Abbott.Russian Vaccine to Be Made in Italy (4:45 p.m. NY)A Swiss biopharmaceutical company will produce the Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine at its Italian facilities, marking the first European production agreement for the Russian shot.Lugano, Switzerland-based Adienne Pharma & Biotech SA signed an agreement with Russian sovereign wealth fund RDIF to manufacture the vaccine at its production site near Milan, according to a statement on the company’s website. Italian regulators must still approve the production but several million doses are expected to be made by the end of the year.U.S. Airline Fliers Top 1 Million a Day (4:35 p.m. NY)U.S. airlines carried an average of more than 1 million passengers a day in the past week, the highest non-holiday total since the Covid-19 pandemic began gutting travel demand in the country almost a year ago.Sunday’s total of 1.28 million was the third highest since travel collapsed in mid-March 2020, according to data reported by the Transportation Security Administration. The only equivalent periods with that many fliers since March 17, 2020, have been during the traditionally busy Thanksgiving and Christmas periods.Florida Lowering Eligibility to Age 60 (3:10 p.m. NY)Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said the state is opening up the vaccine to everyone 60 and over starting on March 15, expanding general eligibility by five years from the previous starting age of 65.Speaking from Tallahassee Monday, DeSantis said the state still had more to do to vaccinate the 65-and-over community but that demand had started to “soften a little bit.”Official data show at least 2.6 million of the state’s 4.5 million seniors have gotten at least one shot, but the data are generally reported with a lag. DeSantis said he expected the number will increase to 3 million later this week.Dutch Lockdown Extended (2 p.m. NY)The Netherlands will extend its lockdown until the end of March, but slowly ease some restrictions, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on Monday. A curfew from 9 p.m. until 4.30 a.m. will remain in place, but shopping on appointment will be expanded and adults are allowed to take part in outside sports with up to four people.The extension means the country, which suffered riots in January over virus curbs, will hold next week’s general election during a lockdown. Rutte also looked ahead to the summer, estimating that four more months are needed to reach a critical amount of vaccinated people to allow for significant easing of restrictions.WHO Concerned About Nations With Conflicts (1:35 p.m. NY)The World Health Organization expressed concern about nations facing conflicts that could halt or slow the response to the pandemic, including vaccinations, officials said at a briefing on Monday.“The response to the pandemic needs to be a public health response and we have to take out politics,” said Kate O’Brien, head of the WHO’s vaccination division. She said vaccines have a shelf life and risk being wasted if they’re not distributed on time.Myanmar, Yemen, Syria and Libya have all faced disruption to general health services.The WHO is having difficulty getting information on Covid and other health issues in many areas, according to Mike Ryan, head of the WHO health emergencies program.Chicago Ballparks to Allow Fans (1 p.m. NY)Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Wrigley Field, home to the Chicago Cubs, and Guaranteed Rate Field, home to the Chicago White Sox, will allow up to 20% capacity, starting on each baseball team’s opening day in April. That capacity may grow as vaccination and recovery efforts continue, but any jump in Covid-19 cases could prompt closures, the city said.Wrigley Field, the oldest ballpark in the National League, will be limited to 8,274 fans per game starting on April 1, the city said. Normal capacity is 41,374. Guaranteed Rate Field, home to the Chicago White Sox on the South Side, will be limited to 8,122 fans. Normally, the ballpark seats just over 40,000 guests.The move follows the city’s steps to ease Covid-19 restrictions as numbers improve. Chicago has already increased capacity at bars and restaurants to 50%.U.K. Vaccinates One-Third of Population (11:55 a.m. NY)More than one-third of the U.K. population has received a first dose of the coronavirus vaccine as deaths from the disease continue to fall.Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the milestone at a news conference on Monday, the same day the government took its first major step in easing lockdown restrictions by reopening schools. “Today we’ve been able to take that crucial first step on what we hope is our cautious but irreversible roadmapto freedom,” he said. “The overwhelming feeling is one of relief.”CDC Loosens Rules for Vaccinated People (11:05 a.m. NY)Vaccinated people can visit indoors without masks but must still wear them in public and avoid large gatherings when around those who aren’t immunized or are at high risk for contracting Covid-19, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday.The agency issued its long-awaited guidance for what fully vaccinated people can safely do, as inoculations rise but as health experts warn that the risk of the virus remains, especially with new variants.Broadly, the CDC recommended that fully vaccinated people can meet freely in private settings with other fully vaccinated people, but that several restrictions remain, including advising against travel and recommending mask-wearing in public.EU’s Von Der Leyen Rips Vaccine Critics (11 a.m. NY)The European Commission is “tired of being the scapegoat” for the slow rollout of vaccines, its president, Ursula von der Leyen, said as she continues to face pressure over the EU’s uncertain response to the pandemic.In a blistering counter-attack against criticism over the European Union’s sluggish Covid-19 vaccination program, von der Leyen refocused blame on manufacturers, notably AstraZeneca Plc, which she said hadn’t stockpiled doses as it started producing in Europe.Philippines Expects 20 Million Doses (10:50 a.m. NY)The Philippines expects to receive 20 million Covid-19 vaccine doses by June or July.About 1.1 million vaccine doses has arrived as of Monday, Carlito Galvez, who heads the nation’s vaccine-procurement efforts, said in a live-streamed briefing Monday evening. The government has administered about 44,000 doses, including in places outside the capital region, he said.Draghi Vows to Jump-Start Italy Vaccinations (10:50 a.m. NY)Prime Minister Mario Draghi pledged strong action to turn around Italy’s slow vaccination campaign, saying an exit path out of the coronavirus pandemic isn’t far away if the country can move faster on inoculations.Speaking via video, the newly appointed premier told a Rome conference that his priorities include fueling a recovery for Italy’s economy, which contracted 8.9% last year.NYC Mayor Praises J&J Shot (10:15 a.m. NY)New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city has begun deploying the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine and praised the shot as a way to reach home-bound seniors and other people who weren’t able to get the vaccine before. The city has initiated a program to bring shots directly into senior homes.“Finally we have the vaccine we need,” de Blasio said on a Monday virus briefing. “People want the J&J vaccine because its one-dose and you’re done.”In other news, the city will reopen high schools for in-person learning on March 22, bringing students in the U.S.’s largest public-school system back into classrooms a year after the pandemic closed it down.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

From her take-no-BS attitude to her passion for promoting body positivity and her insanely catchy songs, Billie Eilish is an inspiration - especially to me. Full disclosure: I still play "Bad Guy" on repeat in my car, and "Lovely" is next in rotation. With that in mind, you can probably guess that I was more than a little excited to watch her new documentary, Billie Eilish: The World's a Little Blurry, now streaming on Apple TV+. The film covers many different aspects of the singer's story, with a focus on her music and personal life (including a secret now ex-boyfriend, rapper Brandon Adams, aka Q). The doc kicks off with Eilish's sudden ascent to fame at the age of 13 with her hit song "Ocean Eyes," and details how she grew up in a musical family. As many Eilish fans know, she and her brother, Finneas, wrote and recorded songs together in their childhood home - and their mom even helped film her first music video. Because Eilish's lyrics are so deep and wise beyond her years, hearing her reveal that she absolutely detests writing them was shocking - but makes more sense when you consider how open she is about her mental health struggles and self-image, especially when it comes to fashion. One of the most notable elements of Eilish's personal style is how impressively she handles body shamers. Both the public and the media have commented on her body and clothing. In response, she created a video clapping back at people who comment on her body. It's a commentary on the age-old sexist idea that if a woman covers up, she's a prude, but if she wears little clothing, she's a slut. Eilish realizes that others' opinions are not her responsibility, and she's the only one who can define herself. As someone who's struggled with body image virtually her entire life, this brave message meant a lot to me. In a world that's obsessed with diet culture, it can be all too easy to dislike our bodies and listen to others' opinions on how we should dress. But as Eilish says, only we can define ourselves, and only our perception matters. People who don't know us can't speak to what we're "allowed" to do or how "good" or "bad" we look. To exemplify this, Eilish has mastered feeling comfortable and looking fashionable in one outfit. Billie Eilish: The World's a Little Blurry is filled with effortlessly cool fashion moments featuring designers like Louis Vuitton and Gucci - keep scrolling to see her 10 best looks from the doc.
