7:05 pm
that we're going to have another epidemic nationwide, but an concerned lives will be lost. new york and california have lifted virtually all of their cobra restrictions on businesses and social gathering. these 2 states hit hardest and earliest by the pandemic. we're also among those that suffered the most economically businesses are trying to balance safety with meaning open and profitable. it does feel like the old times square here. yes. and on the weekend, do you really see me just over 50 percent of storefront open for business in new york times square. but people are coming back. i pedestrian counts now are rising. in fact, we see an average of 200000 sessions coming through our pauses in our neighborhood every day, which is 60 percent increase compared to what we saw during the pandemic. some businesses and events still require masks or proven vaccination. 6 someone like
7:06 pm
myself, mike frank over here, we can't go to the show because we haven't done the vaccination with a significant segment of the population resistant to the vaccine. however, some say you can't be careful enough. i don't know what is going to look right, but sounds good. i just don't want to take any chances. i want to leave a little longer. still, many will find reason to celebrate this independence day in a country, not yet free of the corona, virus. christian salumi al jazeera, new york are present. joe biden is spending part of the july 4th holiday weekend encouraging people to get vaccinated. he's on his way to michigan to mark the countries progress against over 19. it's one of a nationwide so called america's back together tor 1st lady, joe biden is in maine and vice president comma harris will be in california and nevada. although many more, more than half the us population has been vaccinated, the government will not meet his goal of inoculating 70 percent by july. 4th,
7:07 pm
she returns he has moved from washington. they're all good numbers to, to, to absorb behalf. it's true that the by does ministration is going to miss if the goal of 70 percent of adults in the us having at least one shot of a vaccine. but very narrowly missing that it's going to be 67 percent of adults. if the current trends continue til tomorrow, 60 seconds and is not far from 70 percent. so the white house a pretty happy with that. in addition, when you look at some of the other statistics that we have without 12000 cases a day, you compare that to 200000 cases a day when joe biden was inaugurated, we have 300 deaths a day. that's about the same level as we had in the us in march of 2020. so the white house says it's justified in celebrating how far we've come. the problem is that some of these numbers, the trends are beginning to go the other way. actually even begin with our 67
7:08 pm
percent with at least one vaccine. the number of american adults with both vaccines fully vaccinated is only 46 percent. and that rate is slowing. the number of deaths today beginning to creep up as good as the delta variance spreads in the united states, particular problems with people with young people 18 to 39. i'll be proven to be much slower and taking vaccines in fact, actually a particular product, 18 to 26 year olds, and then the regional variations where people are getting vaccinated, usually in the south, east the midwest. and there were saying delta, the delta variance of spreading. so it's a very difficult balancing act that it's not entirely clear whether that can tip to properly calibrate back to the, to the needs of america. right now, indonesia has imposed more restrictions in its capital jakarta, the main island of java, and the tourists have of barley, after record number of infections and deaths, mosques, restaurants and shopping malls are closed and the health care system is struggling
