(Bloomberg) -- U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and one of the top U.S. health officials said reopening the country's economy hinges on the government seeing major communities at the end of their coronavirus outbreaks and developing treatments for the disease, among other hurdles. U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson was taken out of intensive care Thursday evening and moved back to the main hospital ward.The number of confirmed cases has reached nearly 1.6 million globally as of April 10, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University and Bloomberg News.

New York state reported the fewest hospitalizations since the outbreak began, even as deaths hit another high.Leaders from Germany to New York urged residents to abide by restrictions as a weekend of Easter celebrations loom. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention extended "No Sail Order" for all cruise ships.

Calpers Forfeited a $1 Billion Payday by Scrapping Market Hedge
(Bloomberg) -- Three years ago, America's largest pension fund made an unusual investment. It bought so-called tail-risk protection, a kind of insurance against financial catastrophe.

The fund had incurred hundreds of millions of dollars in premium-like costs for those investments. Then it missed out on a bonanza when disaster finally struck.Softening the blow, Calpers held on to the second hedge long enough to make several hundred million dollars, one of the people said.Ben Meng, chief investment officer of Calpers, said the fund terminated the hedges because they were costly and other risk-management tools are more effective, cheaper and better suited to an asset manager of its size."At times like this, we need to strongly resist ‘resulting bias' -- looking at recent results and then using those results to judge the merits of a decision," Meng said in a statement. "We are a long-term investor. For the size and complexity of our portfolio, we need to think differently."Calpers had been warned about the perils of shifting strategy. At an August 2019 meeting of its
