Coronavirus The coronavirus may be here to stay, says Dr. Anthony Fauci. The leading US infectious disease doctor said it’s possible the virus never truly goes away, and the world will just get better at managing it with vaccines. Public health methods, like mask wearing, will also help, and more places around the world are mandating them to contain surges. Face masks are now required in all public spaces in Greece, Portugal’s Madeira Islands and Hong Kong. Mississippi just instituted a mask policy as well, making them mandatory in schools and public gatherings. The state now has the fifth-highest number of coronavirus cases per capita in the US, which overall is hurtling toward 5 million cases. Meanwhile, a new study confirmed Covid-19 rates are much higher among minority children and those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, highlighting inequities in treatment and prevention.

Prime Minister Hassan Diab said the devastating blast was caused by 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate. The dangerous compound could be traced back to a massive shipment of agricultural fertilizer that had been stored in the port of Beirut without safety precautions for years, despite warnings from local officials. At least 135 people are dead, many more are missing, and more than 5,000 are injured. Beirut’s governor says about 300,000 people couldn’t return to their homes after the blast, and at least half the city’s population now have homes that are “unlivable for the foreseeable future.”How 2,750 metric tons of ammonium nitrate ended up in BeirutHow 2,750 metric tons of ammonium nitrate ended up in Beirutbeirut lebanon explosion ammonium nitrate russian ship Robertson pkg intl ldn vpx_00002829JUST WATCHEDHow 2,750 metric tons of ammonium nitrate ended up in BeirutReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

White House New York prosecutors have subpoenaed Deutsche Bank, President Trump’s primary lender, as part of the Manhattan district attorney’s criminal investigation into the President’s business practices, The New York Times reported. The probe initially was thought to be limited to hush-money payments during the 2016 presidential campaign to two women who alleged affairs with Trump, but prosecutors recently made clear it goes far beyond that. Meanwhile, the White House got dinged on social media again. Facebook removed a post from the President’s page that claimed children were “almost immune” to Covid-19. And Twitter said it temporarily restricted the Trump campaign account after it shared a tweet with the same false claim.Trump falsely says kids are 'almost immune' from Covid-19Trump falsely says kids are 'almost immune' from Covid-19Trump falsely says kids are 'almost immune' from Covid-19JUST WATCHEDTrump falsely says kids are ‘almost immune’ from Covid-19ReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Stimulus White House chief of staff Mark Meadows says President Trump is poised to take action if Congress can’t get a stimulus package together — or at least somewhat together — by the end of the week. That could include executive actions to extend eviction protection and unemployment enhancements, though it’s unclear exactly what those would be or what authority the President would have over those provisions. Either way, it’s another sign that patience is running out for a new deal. Meadows blamed Democrats for the stalemate, and some Republican senators are worried that delays in another deal could affect their chances of maintaining a Senate majority this fall.Trump's chief of staff explains what Trump will do next if talks failTrump's chief of staff explains what Trump will do next if talks failTrump's chief of staff explains what Trump will do next if talks failJUST WATCHEDTrump’s chief of staff explains what Trump will do next if talks failReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

TurkeyWomen flooded the streets of Turkish cities in protest of the country’s potential withdrawal from a European treaty on gender-based violence. The Council of Europe’s agreement, commonly known as the Istanbul Convention, was created in 2011 to address systemic violence against women and to define a state’s role in preventing femicide and domestic abuse. The heated public discussions about the deal come amid an increase in Turkey’s domestic violence cases. You may recall, Poland recently announced it is considering leaving the treaty, sparking similar outrage. The deal is also being debated in Croatia and Serbia.BREAKFAST BROWSEFBI agents executed a federal search warrant at YouTube star Jake Paul’s house If you don’t know who Jake Paul is, you probably don’t live with a young person and that is OK.MLB is tightening its coronavirus restrictions after dozens of positive testsMore masks, fewer meetings and still no spitting.
