(Reuters) -UnitedHealth Group Inc on Wednesday said added costs of testing and treatment related to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases are being offset by postponements of non-urgent healthcare procedures, and the health insurer maintained its 2022 profit forecast. The comments should help allay investor concerns that the steep rise in COVID infections and hospitalizations driven by the Omicron variant of the virus in recent weeks would significantly drive up medical costs for health insurers. Adding to those concerns was a Biden administration initiative requiring insurers to reimburse Americans for up to eight at-home rapid COVID-19 tests per month, while setting no limit for tests, including at-home tests, that insurers must cover if they are ordered or administered by a healthcare provider.

President Joe Biden is paying a steep price for high inflation — a problem that festered during his first year in office instead of fading away as he suggested it would. His $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, enacted in March, drove what will probably be the fastest economic growth since 1984 and pulled the unemployment rate down to 3.9% at a quicker pace than experts predicted.

(Reuters) -American Airlines Group Inc on Thursday forecast returning to profitability in March, after reporting a smaller fourth-quarter loss, but said cost pressures would remain elevated this year due to the Omicron coronavirus variant-induced turmoil.

A key group of China Evergrande's international creditors said on Thursday they were ready to take "all necessary actions" to defend their rights if the property developer did not show more urgency to resolve a default.

The creditor group, represented by law firm Kirkland & Ellis and investment bank Moelis, said in a statement it had to "seriously consider" enforcement action after a lack of engagement by the firm at the heart of China's property crisis.
