The number of confirmed cases of the New Coronary Pneumonia in the United States increased to 2.53 million, accounting for a quarter of the world’s total, and more than 125,000 deaths. Several states have recently rebounded, worrying about the second wave of outbreaks.
Vice President Pence met with Texas Governor Abbott to discuss speeding up virus testing. He also believed that young people should be tested for viruses if they were worried, and encouraged people to wear masks.
Regarding President Trump rarely wearing masks in public, some Republican and Democratic congressmen and governors think Trump should set an example. Speaker of the House of Representatives Pelosi supported the mask injunction, and also pointed out that real men should wear masks.

France held a second round of municipal elections on Sunday. Under the influence of the new coronary pneumonia epidemic, the turnout rate was only 40%. Prime Minister Philip was elected mayor in his hometown of Le Havre. The Paris mayor Hidalgo defeated the candidate of the ruling Republican Progressive Party and declared a successful re-election. The Macron government was accused of being ineffective in responding to the epidemic. The Republican Progressive Party, which participated in the municipal elections for the first time, failed to win victory in the major urban constituencies. Instead, the Green Party sprang up, and its candidates won the election of mayors in important cities such as Lyon, Marseille, Strasbourg, and Bordeaux.
Macron congratulated Philip on his victory this time. French law allowed Philip to continue as prime minister, and appointed members of his campaign team as mayor of Le Havre. Whether Philip will take office as mayor depends on the prospects of the French government’s reorganization. According to some analysis, Macron, who is considering restructuring the cabinet, may have new choices for the prime minister.
As for the Green Party, which continued to be strong after last year’s European Parliament elections, winning in key places such as Lyon, Marseille, Bordeaux, and Strasbourg was described by the media as a “green wave.” However, the ruling party led by Macron did not perform well and failed to win in major cities.
Insiders of the Republican Progressive Party bluntly told the Figaro: “This is not just a green wave, but a green tsunami…the 2022 election will be the rise of the Green Party.”
For the ruling party, the Republican Progressive Party, failed, the French government Spokesperson Ndiaye expressed disappointment. The party was founded by Macron before the 2017 presidential election. This is the first time the Republican Progressive Party has participated in municipal elections. Analysts say the party has not cultivated at the local level.
This local election is regarded as the outpost of the presidential election in 2022. It was originally scheduled to be held at the end of March, but it was postponed due to the epidemic. This time, the election of mayors and local officials in about 5,000 cities and towns in the country has a turnout rate of only Up to 40%.
Mark Sedwill, Britain’s most senior civil servant, cabinet secretary and national security adviser (Mark Sedwill), announced his resignation on Sunday after he reported a disagreement with Prime Minister Johnson’s celebrity and chief political adviser Dominic Cummings. There have been rumors that Johnson planned to reorganize the civil service, and Cummings once criticized Sedwell that the government department failed to respond quickly to change.
54-year-old Sedwell is a senior diplomat appointed by the former Prime Minister Wen Cuishan in 2018, but has been accused of lacking a response to the new coronary pneumonia epidemic. In recent months, the media has always accused him of being at odds with Cammins, because Cammins has repeatedly criticized the civil service for being inflexible. There are reports that Cummings warned his assistant last week that “the rain is coming.”
In an interview with Sky News on Sunday, Secretary of the Interior Peng Dailing also hinted that the government will have reforms. It is rumored that the reform of the civil service system will be the responsibility of Cammins. The Secretary of the Cabinet of the United Kingdom is the highest-ranking civil servant in the United Kingdom, whose main responsibility is to provide government policy advice to the Prime Minister. Previously, Sedwell was a professional diplomat. He worked for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for 20 years and served as an ambassador for Afghanistan.
Earlier this year, Johnson forced the Chancellor of the Exchequer to resign in order to strengthen control of the state’s finances. Earlier this month, he announced that he would merge the diplomatic and aid services.
Sedwell’s letter to Johnson stated that after experiencing the most severe crisis of the New Coronavirus, “the government is now focusing on domestic and global recovery and revitalization,” and he will leave his post accordingly. He said that he will officially leave office at the end of September.
The Johnson Office issued a statement thanking Sedwell for his “outstanding contribution” in the past. Johnson also invited Sedwell to serve as the rotating chairman of the Group of Seven (7) industrial countries (G7) in the United Kingdom and host the G7 Summit, where he will lead the Global Economic Security Committee.
British and EU negotiator Frost (David Frost) will succeed Sedwell in mid-August and become the British national security adviser. As for the position of cabinet secretary, another person will be found.
Sedwell questioned the change at this time. Shadow cabinet policy chief Helen Hayes said: “In the next few months, when millions of jobs are expected to face threats, Johnson and Gunmings are anxious to reorganize the British government, which is a serious concern. .”
Japan’s new coronary pneumonia epidemic shows signs of recovery. On Sunday, 113 new confirmed cases were added, setting a new high after the emergency was lifted. The cumulative number of confirmed cases reached more than 18,500. Among them, there are 60 newly confirmed cases in Tokyo, which is also the highest value of the number of new cases in Tokyo in a single day after the state of emergency is lifted. Among them, 39 cases have unknown infection routes. In addition, Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Sea reopened on Wednesday.
Since Tokyo has lifted the emergency and returned to normal life, new cases have double digits almost every day. In the past 7 days, the local average number of infected persons reached 47.7, and the cumulative number of infected persons was 6114.
Among the 60 new patients on Sunday, 33 were in the 20s to 30s and 12 were in the 30s to 40s, which is in line with the current trend of global new coronary pneumonia cases shifting from elderly patients to young people.
According to the regional analysis, the number of infected persons in nightclubs, nightclubs and other closed business places at night is 31, more than half.
But at the same time, it is worth noting that although Tokyo has reopened, there have been double digits in new cases every day, but almost all are mild or even asymptomatic patients, which were discovered by detection.
A meeting of Japanese experts assessed that the second wave of the epidemic is unlikely at this stage throughout Japan. Kang Min, Nishimura, the minister in charge of economic regeneration, also said that the current increase in new cases is slower than the announcement of the emergency in April. Therefore, from an economic perspective, there is no need for Japan to issue a new emergency state of coronary artery pneumonia.
In the New Coronary Pneumonia epidemic, the barista Lenin Gutierrez of Starbucks, San Diego, California, asked a female customer to wear a mask and was humiliated by the other party’s photo and uploaded to the social network for public review.

Next time I will wait for the police to arrive and bring a health waiver certificate.”
However, instead of getting sympathy from netizens, Gilles’ post caused a lot of anger. They both supported Gutierrez and launched a tipping campaign on the crowdfunding website. They originally wanted to raise US$1,000 (HK$78,000) for him, but they eventually raised nearly US$80,000.
For the support of netizens, Gutierrez thanked the filmer for saying, “I just want to remind everyone to be kind to others, love each other, and remember to wear masks.”
He said he would use the money to pursue his dream of being a dancer. The painting donated to some organizations in the San Diego community.
