Frank Biden

He’s partying like it’s 1999 — and there’s no COVID-19 pandemic at all.

President Joe Biden’s younger brother threw caution to the wind Thursday night as he joined a crowd of maskless revelers at fighter Floyd Mayweather’s lavish Ft. Lauderdale birthday bash, Page Six can reveal.

Francis “Frank” Biden showed little concern for social distancing as he stopped to pose for photos at the soirée with the boxing legend and a pair of other partygoers, Jas “Limitless” Mathur and former US Ambassador to Singapore Kirk Wagar.

Petra Köpping

In Saxony passengers of cars have to wear masks when individuals from different households are sitting in the car. Minister for social affairs Petra Köpping did know about the rule, but was caught sitting in her official car with her driver while not wearing a mask. Köpping is now facing a fine for not sticking to the rules of her own government.

Wolfgang Sobotka

President of the Austrian Parliament Wolfgang Sobotka repeatedly criticized members of the FPÖ party for their “permanent provocations” of not wearing a face mask while present in the parliament building.

Now Sobotka himself was caught taking off his mask inside the building. Apparently he thought the cameras were off.

Alun Davies, Paul Davies, Darren Millar & Nick Ramsay

The “meeting” was organised because he wanted to persuade the Welsh Conservatives to support his proposal for a new piece of legislation, Mr Davies added.

In a joint statement, the three Conservatives said they were “profoundly sorry for our actions”.

The Senedd Commission, the corporate body that oversees the Welsh Parliament, said it was “aware of an incident on the Senedd estate last month which may have been contrary to public health regulations in force at the time”.

Joe Biden 3

White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday defended President Biden’s decision to travel home to Delaware just two weeks after moving into the White House.

“He is from Delaware and has a home there and is going to spend the weekend with his wife and family there,” Psaki told reporters Friday.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends delaying travel to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. It’s a message that Biden’s own CDC director, Rochelle Walensky, pushed this week during the administration’s three briefings on its COVID-19 response — particularly with concerns that Super Bowl watch parties could lead to an uptick in cases.

Matt Hancock 2

A senior Tory MP told The Mail on Sunday that Mr Hancock remained in the Smoking Room bar until at least 10.25pm, despite Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle insisting that Commons venues must abide by the same 10pm drink-up-and-leave curfew as all English pubs.

Matt Hancock

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has been caught on camera appearing to forget social distancing rules.

He was spotted slapping a colleague on the back in the House of Commons as he arrived for Prime Minister’s Questions.

Mr Hancock, who has repeatedly urged people to maintain a 2m distance between themselves and others to stop the spread of coronavirus, then remains standing side-by-side with the man – and also steps towards another man who later joins them.
