The fall in shares of Chinese tech giants intensified after Chinese authorities passed an important data protection law, similar to European data protection regulations, that makes it harder and more expensive for tech companies in China to access and use consumer information.

Regarding the COVID-19 virus, the New Zealand government has extended the self-exclusion regime until August 24. This came after eleven new cases were reported today. In the U.S., three senators tested positive for COVID-19 despite being vaccinated.
