  1. COVID-19 – India’s Covid count crosses 2m, record 62k+ cases on Thursday – Covid-19 cases recorded in India crossed 2 million on Thursday (August 6), with the last 1 million cases coming in just 21 days, even as fresh infections surged in the country to an all-time high of over 62,000 in a single day. India also reported 912 deaths on Thursday, the second-highest in a day so far. Just two other countries have recorded over 2 million coronavirus cases, the US and Brazil. While the number of deaths in India at the 2-million stage is far less than the other two, India has the fastest growth rate of Covid infection 3.1%). At the same stage, the US had a rate of 1.1% and Brazil 2%. It took 21 days for infections to rise to 2 million from the 1-million mark. The last 0.5 million cases have come at a faster pace; just nine days.
  2. Economy – RBI keeps key policy rates unchanged The RBI has kept its powder dry in the third review of the monetary policy since the COVID-19 pandemic spread in the country, leaving key policy rates unchanged in the face of rising inflation pressures but asserted that propping up economic recovery has assumed “primacy” in the “worst peace-time health and economic crisis of the last 100 years”. The central bank didn’t extend the moratorium on loan repayments offered to borrowers beyond August 31 but allowed banks to restructure loans from large corporates, micro, small and medium enterprises as well as individuals to help stem the rising stress on incomes and balance sheets.
  3. Polity & Governance – Rajapaksa clan set for landslide win Sri Lanka’s strongman Mahinda Rajapaksa was poised to stage a political comeback on Thursday (August 6) as his party took an unassailable lead and was set for a landslide victory in the general elections, according to results announced so far. An AFP report said that with more than 60% of the 11.3 million ballots counted, PM Mahinda Rajapaksa’s SLPP had 57% of the votes. Official results showed that the party had secured 72 out of the 98 seats decided and was headed for a two thirds majority in the 225-member parliament. The nearest rival to SLPP is the new party formed by former presidential candidate Sajith Premadasa who has relegated his mother party, the United National Party, of former premier Ranil Wickremesinghe to the fourth place. Wickremesinghe’s party is struggling to reach the 5% mark needed to qualify for any seat in the entire island. He is facing the danger of losing his parliamentary seat for the first time since July 1977.
  4. COVID-19 – Covid hotspots shift to newer areas Amid rising number of Covid-19 cases, the epicentres of the infection are shifting from major towns to neighbouring districts and newer states. In recent weeks, districts like Solapur, Thane, Nashik, Palghar, Surat, Jalgaon and Dakshin Kannada have seen the highest number — more than 1,000 each — of containment zones. On the other hand, instances of surges in daily cases per 10 lakh population are reported from states and UTs like Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep, Goa, Andhra Pradesh and Puducherry — ranging between 190 and 249 cases (per 10 lakh population). As on July 30, districts like Pune, Bengaluru, Thane, Mumbai, Chennai and East Godavari were leading the top 20 districts in terms of active caseloads.
  5. Education – SC OKs Tripura’s plan to take back sacked teachers as peons – The SC has greenlighted the Tripura government’s proposal to absorb over 10,000 terminated postgraduate, graduate and undergraduate teachers as peons, night guards, gardeners, cooks and lower division clerks. The Tripura government had recruited 1,035 PGTs, 4,666 TGTs and 4,612 UGTs in 2010 and 2014 through oral interview under the Revised Employment Policy, 2003. The high court on May 7, 2014, set aside the 2003 policy and quashed the appointments. The SC on March 29, 2017, upheld the HC order, directed framing of a new policy and recruitment thereunder by December 31, 2017. However, it saw nothing wrong in the Tripura government's proposal seeking to give them alternative appointment in Group C and D category government jobs.
  6. World – FB, Twitter take aim at Trump ‘misinformation’ – Facebook and Twitter have taken aim at U.S. President Donald Trump and his campaign over a video post, in which he contended that children are “almost immune” to the COVID-19, a claim they said amounted to “misinformation.” In an extraordinary move, Facebook removed the clip from the President’s account — the first time it has taken down one of his posts for violating its content rules. Twitter, meanwhile, said it had blocked Mr. Trump’s official campaign account over a tweet containing the same video, in which the President made the case for reopening U.S. schools come September.
  7. Economy – Inflation to stay elevated: RBI – India’s GDP will shrink in 2020-21, while inflation will continue to stay elevated in the coming months. However, the RBI refrained from projecting an estimate for the contraction, with an early containment of the COVID-19 pandemic being the only hope for a positive surprise. The RBI is hopeful of inflation easing during the second half of 2020-21. Headline inflation had gone up from 5.8% in March to 6.1% in June 2020, with price pressures evident across items, including food.
  8. Economy – Jewel loan-to-value ratio raised to 90% from 75% – With a view to further mitigating the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on households, entrepreneurs and small businesses, the RBI has decided to increase the permissible loan-to-value ratio (LTV) for loans against pledge of gold ornaments and jewellery for non-agricultural purposes to 90%. Under the current guidelines, loans sanctioned by banks against pledge of gold ornaments and jewellery should not exceed 75% of the value of gold ornaments and jewellery, which has now increased to 90%.
  9. Economy – Credit discipline: current account norms tightened In a move aimed at improving credit discipline, the RBI has instructed lenders not to open current accounts for customers who have availed credit facilities in the form of cash credit (CC)/ overdraft (OD) from a bank, and directed them to ensure that all transactions are routed through the CC/OD account. The new rules will be applicable to existing current, CC/OD accounts with various banks. Where a bank’s exposure to a borrower is less than 10% of the exposure of the banking system to that borrower, while credits are freely permitted, debits to the CC/OD account can only be for credit to the CC/OD account of that borrower with a bank that has 10% or more of the exposure of the banking system to that borrower.
  10. Polity & Governance – Ex-Union minister Manoj Sinha is surprise choice for J&K LG – BJP veteran and former central minister Manoj Sinha has been appointed lieutenant governor of Jammu & Kashmir in a surprise move after the abrupt exit of G C Murmu. He will be the first politician to be appointed LG of the newly formed Union territory. Sinha’s track record as incharge of the communications ministry and as MoS, railways, in Modi 1.0 indicates that he is seen as someone with experience in infrastructure development besides bringing a political touch to the office that might be needed whenever assembly polls are held in J&K. Sinha lost the 2019 LS election from Ghazipur to BSP’s Afzal Ansari.

Lebanese rescue workers searched for survivors in the mangled wreckage of buildings and investigators blamed negligence for a massive warehouse explosion that sent a devastating blast wave across Beirut, killing at least 135 people.
                                                                                                                                    • Highlights –

Nearly 5,000 people were injured in Tuesday’s (August 4) explosion at Beirut port and tens of thousands were left without homes fit to live in after shockwaves smashed building facades, sucked furniture out into streets and shattered glass miles inland.
                                                                                                                                    2. The death toll was expected to rise from the blast that officials blamed on a huge stockpile of highly explosive material stored for years in unsafe conditions at the port.
                                                                                                                                    3. The explosion was the most powerful ever to rip through Beirut, a city still scarred by civil war that ended three decades ago and reeling from an economic meltdown and a surge in coronavirus infections.
                                                                                                                                    4. The blast rattled buildings on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, about 160 km away.
                                                                                                                                    5. President Michel Aoun said 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate, used in fertilisers and bombs, had been stored for six years at the port without safety measures, after it was seized.  
                                                                                                                                    • House arrest –

                                                                                                                                    2. The cabinet also announced a two-week state of emergency in Beirut.
                                                                                                                                    3. Ordinary Lebanese, who have lost jobs and watched savings evaporate in Lebanon's financial crisis, blamed politicians who have overseen decades of state corruption and bad governance. 
                                                                                                                                    • Tangled wreck –

                                                                                                                                    2. Officials did not say what caused the initial blaze at the port that set off the blast.
                                                                                                                                    3. A security source and media said it was started by welding work being carried out on a warehouse.
                                                                                                                                    4. The port district was left a tangled wreck, disabling the nation's main route for imports needed to feed a nation of more than 6 million people.

U.S. astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, who flew to the International Space Station in SpaceX's new Crew Dragon, splashed down in the capsule in the Gulf of Mexico on August 2 after a two-month voyage that was NASA's first crewed mission from home soil in nine years.
                                                                                                                                                          2. NASA, aiming to galvanize a commercial space marketplace, awarded nearly $8 billion to SpaceX and Boeing Co collectively in 2014 to develop dueling space capsules, experimenting with a contract model that allows the space agency to buy astronaut seats from the two companies.

Mr. Behnken and Mr. Hurley undocked from the station on Saturday (August 1) and returned home to land in the waves off Florida's Pensacola coast on schedule at 2:48 p.m. ET following a 21-hour overnight journey aboard Crew Dragon “Endeavor.”
                                                                                                                                                          2. The successful splashdown was a final key test of whether Elon Musk's spacecraft can transport astronauts to and from orbit a feat no private company has accomplished before.
                                                                                                                                                          3. For the return sequence, on-board thrusters and two sets of parachutes worked autonomously to slow the acorn-shaped capsule, bringing Mr. Behnken and Mr. Hurley's speed of 17,500 miles per hour in orbit down to 350 mph upon atmospheric reentry, and eventually 15 mph at splashdown.
                                                                                                                                                          4. During re-entry to Earth's atmosphere, the capsule's outer shell withstood temperatures as high as 3,500 Fahrenheit while Mr. Behnken and Mr. Hurley, wearing SpaceX's white flight suits strapped inside the cabin, experienced 85 Fahrenheit.
                                                                                                                                                          5. Billionaire entrepreneur Musk's SpaceX became the first private company to send humans to orbit with the launch of Mr.Behnken and Mr. Hurley, who have spent more than two months on the space station.
                                                                                                                                                          6. The landmark mission, launched from NASA's Kennedy Space Center on May 31, marked the first time the U.S. space agency launched humans from American soil since its shuttle program retired in 2011.
                                                                                                                                                          7. Since then the US has relied on Russia's space program to launch its astronauts to the space station.
                                                                                                                                                          8. Mr. Behnken and Mr. Hurley's homecoming was also the first crewed splashdown in an American capsule in 45 years.
