Trump Considers Banning TikTok

On Tuesday, President Trump gave an interview in which he said he was considering banning TikTok.

Trump echoed earlier comments from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Trump implied a ban on TikTok would be a way of punishing China for the coronavirus.

Business Insider reports that Coronavirus originated in the city of Wuhan.

Trump's rationale was somewhat different from the reason given by Pompeo.

Pompeo said the US was worried TikTok could be a national-security risk.

‘Donate oximeters’: Kejriwal suggests ways to support villages amid Covid-19

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urge people to donate oximeters in villages to support rural areas amid coronavirus pandemic. Kejriwal, in his press briefing on Independence Day, shared a few tips on Covid-19 containment and treatment. The Delhi CM said home-isolation has helped Delhi in tackling Coronavirus. Kejriwal urged people to come out and take responsibility as Covid-19 spreads in rural India. Kejriwal appealed to AAP workers to support villages and provide oximeters to those who need it. Oximeters help in measuring the oxygen level and are found to be extremely useful for coronavirus patients who in many cases battle breathlessness due to lack of oxygen. "My appeal to people is to donate to AAP as many oximeters as possible so that every AAP worker can take the responsibility of his village to measure the oxygen level of people who have fever or breathlessness. We can save the lives of people through oximeters," he said. The chief minister also advised states to implement Delhi's home isolation model that can help in their battle against coronavirus.
