Pfizer may be requesting accelerated approval of its potential vaccine against Covid-19 from the US drug watchdog in late November. This step depends on the results of a large-scale study into the effectiveness and safety of the drug, CEO Albert Bourla writes in an open letter. The US regulator FDA can give the green light to the use of medicines in an emergency before they have gone through an official and lengthy approval process.

Truck builder Navistar posted a 22.9% share price explosion after reaching an agreement with Volkswagen subsidiary Traton on an acquisition. Traton will pay approximately $ 3.7 billion for Navistar, in which it already had an interest of just under 17%.
Uber (-1.6%) would look at alternatives to Uber Elevate, the company’s service that wants to offer taxi rides in small vertical take-off and landing planes. The company behind taxi service Uber and food delivery company Uber Eats is considering collaborations or a partial sale, the American medium Axios reports.

Twitter recently blocked a message damaging to presidential candidate Joe Biden about his son’s affairs in Ukraine, in which Biden was allegedly involved as vice president at the time. The company now wants to be more careful with such blockages based on suspicions of hacked information.
