China extends threatening military exercises around Taiwan: "This is the apex of the crisis cycle"


China said Monday it was extending threatening military exercises surrounding Taiwan that have disrupted shipping and air traffic and substantially raised concerns about the potential for conflict in a region crucial to global trade. China has ignored calls to calm the tensions, and there was no immediate indication when it would end what amounts to a blockade. For further analysis on the heightened tensions between China and Taiwan, FRANCE 24 is joined by Jean-François Di Meglio, President of Asia Centre, Paris. Mr. Di Meglio believes the crisis will abate in the coming weeks or months because the US and China need each other. He also highlights the fact that "China is in a very difficult situation currently, both on the economic side and the diplomatic side." And so China needs the US more now than ever, explains Mr. Di Meglio.

Biden Tests Negative For COVID, Isolating Until 2nd Negative Test

President Joe Biden tested negative for COVID-19 on Saturday but will continue to isolate at the White House until a second negative test, his doctor said.Dr. Kevin O'Connor wrote in his latest daily update that the president, "in an abundance of caution," will abide by the "strict isolation measures" in place since his "rebound" infection was detected July 30, pending a follow-up negative result.President Biden, 79, came down with the virus a second time three days after he had emerged from isolation from his initial bout with COVID-19, reported on July 21. There have been rare rebound cases documented among a small minority of those, who like President Biden, were prescribed the anti-viral medication Paxlovid, which has been proved to reduce the risk of serious illness and death from the virus among those at highest risk.O'Connor wrote that President Biden "continues to feel very well."President Biden's travel has been on hold as he awaited a negative test. He plans to visit Kentucky on Monday to view damage from catastrophic flooding and meet with families.President Biden was "doing great," White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Saturday when asked about his health during her appearance in Las Vegas at a joint conference of the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. She said that when she speaks to the president, he tells her to "tell folks I've been working eight-plus hours a day."During his first go-around with the virus, President Biden's primary symptoms were a runny nose, fatigue and a loose cough, his doctor said at the time. During his rebound case, O'Connor said only President Biden's cough returned and had "almost completely resolved" by Friday.Regulators are still studying the prevalence and virulence of rebound cases, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in May warned doctors that it has been reported to occur within two days to eight days after initially testing negative for the virus."Limited information currently available from case reports suggests that persons treated with Paxlovid who experience COVID-19 rebound have had mild illness; there are no reports of severe disease," the agency said at the time.Additional reporting by The Associated Press.
