SAN FRANCISCO, May 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hagens Berman urges Canaan Inc. (NASDAQ: CAN) investors with significant losses to submit your losses now. A securities class action has been filed and certain investors may have valuable claims. Class Period: Feb. 10, 2021 – Apr. 9, 2021Lead Plaintiff Deadline: June 14, 2021Visit: www.hbsslaw.com/investor-fraud/CAN Contact An Attorney Now: CAN@hbsslaw.com | 844-916-0895 Canaan Inc. (NASDAQ: CAN) Securities Fraud Action: The complaint is focused on Canaan’s statements about its bitcoin mining machine business. According to the complaint, in past months, Canaan has falsely touted substantial improvement in its revenue visibility, its ability to more precisely forecast revenues, and its receipt of larger orders for its bitcoin mining machines. As recently as Apr. 9, 2021, Canaan’s CEO reportedly assured investors that the global shortage of chips used in its equipment did not negatively impact the company. But, on Apr. 12, 2021, Canaan reported horrible Q4 and FY 2020 financial results. Blaming supply chain disruptions, the company reported Q4 2020 total computing power sold tanked 93% year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter. Canaan also reported FY 2020 total computing power sold tanked 37% year-over-year. During the company’s earnings conference call that morning CEO Nangeng Zhang admitted, contrary to earlier statements, that Canaan had in fact run into a severe shortage of chip supply. This news sent the price of Canaan American Depositary Shares crashing nearly 30% lower that day. “We’re focused on investors’ losses and proving Canaan intentionally and falsely assured investors of its forecasted revenues and its insulation from the chip shortage,” said Reed Kathrein, the Hagens Berman partner leading the investigation.

ISLAMABAD— Pakistan on Saturday received its first supply of COVID-19 vaccines through the U.N.-backed COVAX initiative, over 1.2 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine. The prime minister’s special aide on health, Dr. Faisal Sultan, asked people over age 40 to register for shots and said the Pakistani government would soon be able to expand its immunization program to other age groups. A statement issued by Pakistan's National Command and Operations Center said that 1,238,400 vaccine doses arrived in the first COVAX allocation while another batch of 1,236,000 was expected to arrive in a few days. The delivery of first consignment of vaccine is the product of an unprecedented global partnership to ensure no country is left behind in the global race to fight the coronavirus, said Alexa Reynolds, the senior manager for Pakistan from Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, one of the partner's in the COVAX initiative. Pakistan is in the middle of a third wave of virus infections, which authorities say is worse than the previous two. The country reported 120 deaths and 4,105 new confirmed cases on Saturday ahead of a planned weeklong closure of all businesses and transportation. Since last year, Pakistan has reported 18,797 deaths from COVID-19 among 854,240 confirmed cases. ___ THE VIRUS OUTBREAK: — India's surge hits southern states, prompts more lockdowns — EU says US patent waiver proposal isn't a magic bullet — As US reopens, campuses tighten restrictions for virus — Spain takes vaccine to the rural housebound ___ Follow more of AP’s pandemic coverage at https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-pandemic and https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-vaccine ___ HERE’S WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING: MADISON, Wisc. — U.S. states asked the federal government this week to withhold staggering amounts of COVID-19 vaccine amid plummeting demand for the shots, contributing to a growing U.S. stockpile of doses. From South Carolina to Washington, states are requesting the Biden administration send them only a fraction of what’s been allocated to them. The turned-down vaccines amount to hundreds of thousands of doses this week alone, providing a stark illustration of the problem of vaccine hesitancy in the U.S. More than 150 million Americans — about 57% of the adult population — have received at least one dose of vaccine, but government leaders from the Biden administration down to the city and county level are doing everything they can to persuade the rest of the country to get inoculated. U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy said Friday that the federal government has dedicated $250 million for community organizations to promote vaccinations, make appointments and provide transportation. The Biden administration announced this week that if states don’t order all the vaccine they’ve been allotted, the administration will shift the surplus to meet demand in other states. __ ISLAMABAD — Pakistan has reported 120 deaths and 4105 new cases of COVID-19 in a single day ahead of a planned closure of all business and transport for a week starting Saturday. Before the start of the long closure, thousands in every city and town across the country thronged to markets and malls to shop for Eid, which Muslims celebrate at the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Many did not wear face masks. Traders associations say they intend to defy the planned closure. The commissioner of the capital, Islamabad, earlier said the administration will strictly implement the government plan. Prime Minister Imran Khan’s aide on health, Dr. Faisal Sultan, advised people to stay home and avoid rushing to markets. Pakistan is currently in the middle of a third wave which authorities say is worse than the previous ones. Since last year, Pakistan has reported 18,797 deaths from COVID-19 among 854,240 cases. ___ STOCKHOLM — The Swedish military says some 200 conscripts have been sent home from a major military exercise involving thousands of soldiers in southern and central Sweden due to a suspected outbreak of coronavirus infections. The “Sydfront 21” drill with over 3,500 participants from 13 different units of the Swedish Armed Forces is the first major military exercise in the Scandinavian nation since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Exercise leader Maj. Ake Palm told Swedish broadcaster TV4 Saturday that the military made the decision to send some of the soldiers home after several conscripts with cold-like symptoms either tested positive or were suspected to have been infected with coronavirus. Alf Johansson, head of the exercise’s communications, told the Swedish news agency TT that the affected unit had 200 soldiers and 8 positive coronavirus cases have been confirmed so far. He defended arranging the drill in the middle of the pandemic by saying that the military hasn’t burdened civilian health care. “This is a very important exercise for the army to train together so that we can maintain our ability to defend Sweden,” Johansson told TT. Sweden, a nation of 10 million, has recorded just over 1 million coronavirus cases, with 14,173 deaths by Friday. ___ HARTFORD, Conn. — Of the more than 1.4 million Connecticut residents who are now fully vaccinated, 242 later became infected with COVID-19, according to data released Friday from the state Department of Public Health. Among the 242 so-called “vaccine breakthrough cases,” 109 people had no symptoms of the disease. DPH reported three deaths among vaccinated individuals who were confirmed to have had underlying medical conditions. They were between the ages of 55-64, 65-74, and 75 years and older. Nationally, there have been 132 vaccine breakthrough deaths, DPH said. “The main takeaway is that COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective and cases of infection after a person is fully vaccinated are very rare,” Dr. Deidre Gifford, the state’s acting public health commissioner, said in a statement. Cases of COVID-19 in fully vaccinated individuals in Connecticut is less than 0.1%, according to the DPH data. ___ HELENA, Mont. -- Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte and Alberta Premier Jason Kenney announced that Montana will share COVID-19 vaccines with Canadian truck drivers from neighbouring Alberta. According to a memorandum of understanding signed Friday about 2,000 truck drivers from Alberta who transport goods from Canada to the U.S. will be eligible to be vaccinated at a highway rest stop near Conrad. The vaccines will be available between May 10 and May 23. A similar program to vaccinate truck drivers from Canada began in North Dakota last month. The Blackfeet tribe in northern Montana has given around 1,000 vaccines to their relatives and neighbours across the border. ___ SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The owner of a Northern California bar was arrested on suspicion of selling made-to-order fake COVID-19 vaccination cards to several undercover state agents for $20 each in what officials said Friday is the first such foiled operation they are aware of nationwide. The plainclothes agents from California’s Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control were told to write their names and birthdates on Post-it notes. They say bar employees cut the cards, filled out the identifying information and bogus vaccination dates, then laminated the finished product. Vaccination cards are being used in some places as a pass for people to attend large gatherings. The European Union is considering allowing in tourists who can prove they have been vaccinated. Acting on an an anonymous tip from the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s office, four undercover agents went to Old Corner Saloon in the town of Clements several times in April and bought four fake laminated vaccination cards, officials said. They returned to the small-town bar this week and arrested the bar’s owner. Agents say they found another two completed cards and 30 additional blank cards along with a laminator and cutting device. It wasn’t immediately known if the bar owner, Todd Anderson, has an attorney who can speak on his behalf. No one answered the phone at the bar Friday. ___ DENVER, Colo. -- A former Amazon warehouse worker has filed a complaint with the Colorado officials against Amazon over its COVID-19 policies and allegations that her firing was retaliatory. Linda Rodriguez alleges Amazon fired her in 2020 because she raised concerns about the company’s COVID-19 policies that she said put workers at risk. Her complaint was sent Thursday to the state’s labour department. An Amazon spokesperson in response to the complaint says Rodriguez was fired for timecard fraud that the company says was confirmed by time records and video footage. Amazon said the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration confirmed Rodriguez withdrew a complaint filed with the agency. The Associated Press

Researchers in British Columbia say the pandemic has exposed weaknesses in how governments across Canada and around the world collect and use data to manage public health. B.C.'s Deputy Provincial Health Officer Dr. Reka Gustafson gave a talk Friday morning titled, "Where to go next: How the current pandemic has informed future public health research priorities." Gustafson says there's room for improvement to better understand COVID-19 but also how measures to curb the spread of the virus have affected health outcomes overall. "From a public health perspective, a more important and interesting area of research for me is understanding how we responded to this as a society and learning from that," Gustafson said in an interview with CBC News earlier in the week, ahead of her talk. Criticism for lack of data On the same day as her talk, Gustafson came under fire when a leaked report showed the province has been collecting data that reporters and analysts have requested for months, but not sharing it with the public. Many in B.C. have routinely criticized health officials for providing scant COVID-19 data compared to other provinces, thereby hampering more detailed analysis that could lead to better prevention. But researcher Mohsen Sadatsafavi, a quantitative epidemiologist at the respiratory evaluation sciences program at the University of British Columbia, says the lack of health data collected and shared isn't unique to B.C. "I think we could have done a much, much better job in data acquisition integration in earlier phases of the pandemic," Sadatsafavi said. "We should learn from these lessons and be more prepared for, not just necessarily the next pandemic, but generally for the way we are tackling health problems through research." Examples of success Sadatsafavi says most governments don't collect enough data to begin with, or can't find a way to share data across departments, jurisdictions, and local or international borders. The few countries that have been more data savvy, Sadatsafavi says, have had better success managing the pandemic. He says South Korea, which has one of the lowest infection rates in the world, successfully analyzed anonymized data from sources like cellphone towers and credit card transactions to effectively combat the virus. Given the millions of infections and deaths around the world, Sadatsafavi says, it could be possible to use artificial intelligence to determine who is more likely to get seriously ill or die from the virus. 'Factors that are out of our control' Gustafson admits that the data available through the data dashboard offered by the B.C. Centre for Disease Control, where she also works as the vice-president of public health and wellness, is basic and without context. "I wish I could change just about every aspect of it," she told the audience during her talk. Although Gustafson is quick to point out achievements from the past year — from understanding the basics of how COVID-19 is transmitted to developing vaccines — she says there's still a lot to know. "We haven't paid as much attention to the factors that are out of our control," she said, like the weather or social structures. 'What gets measured gets treasured' While there is already a wealth of research around the social determinants of health, like housing and family composition, Gustafson says there isn't much concrete data related to it that has been consistently measured during the pandemic and shared on the same scale as daily case counts. "What gets measured gets treasured," she said. Gustafson stuck to the province's regular refrain on why this data has not been collected: a lack of time and resources, as well as concerns about privacy. "I think the most important outcome of [the pandemic] is for us to build up the infrastructure to support what we call democratization of data," she said. Disproportionate outcomes Public health researcher Dr. Farah Shroff, a professor with UBC's School of Population and Public Health, agrees. Shroff says the hyper-focus on COVID-19 has come to the detriment of studying the health impact of social determinants of health, many of which have worsened in the past year. "This has been a pandemic which has disproportionately affected everybody who isn't as powerful as they could be," she said, adding that women and children have been particularly affected. The vast majority of research funding during the pandemic has gone toward treatment of COVID-19, Shroff says, instead of health promotion and prevention. "Every grandma will say 'an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,' and that's true in research," she said.
