Foreign Affairs

* Iran has the dubious distinction of being the country with the highest number of government officials infected by the coronavirus. That includes Vice President Masoumeh Ebtekar. The reason: China, which has close–sanction-skirting–economic relations with the Tehran government.

* The Olympics are scheduled to open July 24 in Tokyo–although postponement or cancellation remain distinct possibilities. The last Olympic cancellation was during World War II. Elsewhere in Japan, the country’s professional baseball league said it would play all remaining pre-season games in empty stadiums because  of the coronavirus threat.

* We know that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is “BoJo.” Now we have “ScoMo,” the prime minister of Australia, AKA Scott Morrison. Thanks again, J.Lo.
