Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline Plc, partners developing a potential coronavirus vaccine, agreed to supply the U.K. with as many as 60 million doses of their experimental shot. The U.S. neared 150,000 deaths even as daily infections slowed in some hard-hit states.

China reported 101 new cases, up from 68 a day earlier, while Japan found a record 1,002 infections on Wednesday. Australia’s Queensland state will close its borders to all visitors from Sydney from Saturday. In the European Union, officials backtracked further on a plan to let in more foreign travelers.
