4:02 am
america. that's an estimate from the cdc director she describes it as a dramatic increase from about 50% just two weeks ago. the cdc director also says we're averaging more than 230 deaths each day that's a nearly 50% rise over the past week. >> each death is tragic and even more heartbreak when we know that the majority of these deaths could be prevented with a simplesafe available vaccine. >> studies show the delta variant spreads 225% more rapidly than the original virus and that it grows faster in the body creating a viral load 1,000 times greater than in earlier strains. delta is now ripping through communities at this moment, especially ones with low vaccination rates. you can see here the number of daily shots in arms appears to be plateauing at around 500,000. the cdc reports 65% of americans
4:03 am
aged 12 and older have received at least one dose so far we have coverage from all angles tonight. seema mody on how the latest covid wave is impacting summer travel dr. vin gupta about the surge in delta cases. first to our health and science correspondent meg tirrell. meg, break down this new study with the slashing headline late this afternoon in the "new york times" about the j&j vaccine >> reporter: yeah, shep. this is a study from a lab at nyu that looked at antibodies generated by the vaccines to see how well they hold up against different variants, and it found that for people who got the single shot j&j vaccine the antibody levels against the delta variant may be low enough to be less protective. now the study isn't yet peer
4:04 am
reviewed and jandohnson & johnsn is taking issue with it. j&j's is the only one-shot vaccine for covid available, a codifferentiator and ease of distribution and access. about 13 million americans have had the shot of the more than 161 million americans who are fully vaccinated j & j telling us tonight its own data showed the vaccine generated strong persistent activity against the delta variant and other highly prevalent variants now we also reached out to the cdc which said it stands by its earlier statement this month about boosters, that, quote, americans who have been fully vaccinated do not need a above thor shot at this time, that, of course, includes those who got one shot of the j&j vaccine. the cdc's advisory committee on vaccines is scheduled to discuss additional doses of vaccines at a meeting on thursday but only for people with suppressed immune systems as of now shep >> meg, separately a judge ruled that indiana university can require its students and staff
4:05 am
to get vaccinated before they return to campus in the fall could this have an effect on other colleges i know hundreds and hundreds of them really are considering the same matter. >> absolutely. legal scholars are saying tonight this sets an important standard for potential future cases. a professor at uc hastings college of law writing the decision public health authorities or universities do not have carte blanche to impose any requirements they want but can legitimately act to prevent disease and improve safety now, of course, a decision recently went in favor of hospitals mandating vaccines as well, so we may see more these, particularly once the vaccines get full approval from the fda which folks like dr. scott gotlieb predicts could happen in october or september shep. >> meg, thanks so much americans are hitting the road this summer traveling to tourist hot spots across the country like national parks and beach towns here and there many destinations are already packed, but they may get even
4:06 am
busier more people now rethinking travel plans abroad as some countries are tightening restrictions here's cnbc's seema mody >> reporter: for americans hoping to travel overseas this summer, be prepared for change as the threats of the delta variants stands in the way. >> the days of planning everything in advance because it changes in a second. >> reporter: sheila brown just returned from a ten-day cruise around portugal, but it was supposed to include three other countries in europe. two weeks before flying out it was cancelled as newly imposed restrictions and shutdown countries like hungary. >> we were doing the debate of should we go anywhere whatsoever do we pick somewhere in the united states, or just don't travel whatsoever? so all options were on the table. >> reporter: meanwhile england celebrated on monday calling it freedom day as a majority their restrictions were lifted the opposite case in singapore the nation just banned all dining at restaurants and limited social gatherings to
4:07 am
two. the back to europe, greece, another destination adding restrictions music and dancing in large groups banned in the greek party island that attracts thousands of americans every summer. >> that's much easier to stay in the country right now. one of the reasons why we're seeing such hoy demand to car rentals, trips to national parks, beach get aye ways, things closer to home. >> u.s. cities with the highest hotel occupancy, myrtle beach, florida dose and maui where the mayor has asked airlines to limit the number of flights. with mexico and now canada welcoming americans, travel ceos are pushing the white house to reopen international borders after stalled talks with the white house task force they are having conversations with chief of staff adviser steve chain. >> let's talk to dr. gupta, a
4:08 am
longtime nbc contributor doctor, the new questions about the effectiveness of j&j's vaccine against the delta strap, this new study, should the 9 million or so of us who got the j&j single dose mask up now n-59 style until we know more >> no, shep, and good evening. what i do think it shows is that it's hard to believe that one dose of j&j is equivalent to two doses of pfizer or two doses of moefrpda, and this is where i would like the cdc, fda and the committee to at least one dose to get another dose. >> people are already doing that. >> one dose of aft zeneca when combined in pfizer and moderna
4:09 am
has a tremendous effect in terms of antibody levels that are generated. i do think the one-shot j&j should be given the opportunity while we complete our trial. >> would you want it if one of your loved ones had co-morbidities, would you say go get a pfizer and moderna, here's how you are doing. >> i'm telling my patients to do it if they can get access to it. >> that's what i -- i hear that from doctor after doctor and yet the cdc, which a couple weeks ago said no, we're not even thinking about boosters and then the next week said yeah, we ethinking about busters saying emphatically don't do it this new study from nyu looks like we should be a bit concerned. up j&j and delta running around here 1,000 times more the viral load i don't want this thing and that's why i've been so careful, i don't know, and now i'm about to get another shot. >> i'll say that the studies that j&j produced and the study out of nyu, they are small
4:10 am
studies, lab-based studies i look at what's happening with aft zeneca and when you give a second dose of pfizer moderna, a sister advantages own similar to j&j t.heightens protection and it's safe. based on those studies we should infer it's effective for j&jiers, we're in an emergency and we need to provide national guidance while we're awaiting our own studies internally. >> that makes sense. you've treated covid patients since the start of this thing way back in march and february what are you seeing in your hospital right now as the delta variant is spreading >> well, you know, shep, i practiced both here in washington state and arizona and i'm seeing in our zip codes there's a decoupling even if we're seeing case risings, we're not sewing a parallel significant increase in hospitalizations deaths are still plateauing in most zip codes across the country. i want to urge calmness. yes, we're seeing certain hot
4:11 am
zones pop up but they are regional, places we expected there to be hot zones, low vaccination rates, low masking rates. we shouldn't be surprised by it. we should be really calm knowing that the vaccines are very effective when they are adopted. >> one half thing before we go the if someone -- if there's a breakthrough case, if you're fully vaccinated and you get it, but you don't know it because you don't have symptoms and our not getting tested, are you contagious, can you spread it to a child who hasn't been vaccinated or your grandmother or do we not know yet? >> definitive studies are still happening, shep, but we have enough data right now to sthaugt if you are otherwise healthy and say less than 65 years of age and fully vaccinated and my defamation of fully vaccinated is two doses of vaccine that the chances you can transmit the virus to an unvaccinated child at home is exceedingly low
4:12 am
some docks say less than 1%. if you meet that criteria, you can safely unmask at home and live worry-free. >> i was done except you just said dr. vin gupta whom i trust and whom we hire to give us information, you just said your definition of vaccinated is two doses. the 9 million of us who got j&j have had one dose. are you saying we're not fully vaccinated >> i think you're protected likely from the hospital and severe outcomes from say the delta variant based on what data we do have i do not think you have the same level of protection to transmit the virus than somebody who received two doses of the vaccine like pfizer and moderna. >> wish i made a bit different decision, i'll tell you that dr. gupta, thank you. well, blue origin made history today. meet the world's newest astronauts they include the oldest, the youngest and the richest person

4:19 am
>> yeah. >> if you look at the first 50 years of space flight, all government astronauts, very expensive. very dangerous, and somebody had to go first and plow the first fields in the last 20 years there's only seven of us that flew privately at a very high ticket price. the great news about today and all flights going forward, the vast majority of flights going ford i should say is that the majority of foreign flight for both suborbital and orbital are expected to be privately funded expeditions to space and what that is going to do is bring the price down quickly safety will go up and prices will come down and more and more people will get a chance to go and that allows us to bring the bounty of the value of space back down here for the inhabitants of our great earth. >> right on. quickly, bezos talks about taking all of the mining and everything else that's dangerous and detrimental to the planet out there to the moon or somewhere else do you think that's a real possibility? >> i think it's a necessity.
4:20 am
it's absolutely a possibility. lots of people working on it for decades. still difficult and will be expensive and take years to pull it off to sustain the earth we'll have to do things like jeff has suggested. >> richard garr iot, great to see you. we'll talk about havana syndrome, an international mystery, one that's reached almost every corner of the globe. now a u.s. official's baby is experiencing symptoms of the condition no nobody seems to be able to trace to a source. and a new york cop hle

4:24 am
ken, what's being done to protect americans overseas >> reporter: the problem the u.s. government faces, shep, is that it can't really protect americans and debilitating brain injuries the state department is deploying small physical detection devices in cuba and a handful of other posts and that's just a theory and the most important thing that's happening right now is u.s. intelligence officials are devoting a lot of resources to uncovering the truth after years of debate over whether these injuries are even real they are absolutely real, shep, and some of the victims are being treated for traumatic brain injury alongside wounded soldiers at walter reed. our sources say cy a and other injuries are shifting through reams of data and all the cell phone records and gough location information, for example, to hunt for those responsible if in fact this is being caused by an adversery. i've spoken to a number of current and former intelligence officials who believe this is

4:38 am
on scene how do you get cops to police their own? it comes through policies and supervision and through laws in some instances the george floyd bill that's slowly working its way through congress would seek to address that issue of requiring officers to interrupt misbehavior and bad conduct, would require that they report it. that would need to be basically supported by better supervision and better training with the body cameras that every police officer in america will probably have within the next five years. you'll have -- in many -- police need to deal with the false claims over them and outweigh the bad video we've seen the use of force by american
4:39 am
