his reaction to a texas born sprinter from italy taking the throne vacated by jamaica' usain bolt capturing the first ever 100 meter medal from italy. allyson felix and noah liles on the track the women's beach volleyball all here on cnbc we begin the news tonight with a push to vaccinate more americans. as the delta variant fuels a new and dangerous wave of covid infections the u.s. has now vaccinated 70% of all adults with at least one dose it is a major milestone but it comes about a month after president biden's goal of getting it done by july the 4th. >> while we desperately want to be done with this pandemic, covid-19 is clearly not done with us so our battle must last a little longer. and if you are not vaccinated, please protect yourself and get vaccinated. >> cdc data shows vaccinations are trending up if slightly across the nation but more
7:03 pm
importantly, they're rising in places that have struggled so far to convince people to get a shot here's a look at the ten states with the lowest vaccination rates. they're all reporting at least a 37% increase in the average number of people getting their first dose over the past two weeks but in louisiana it's up more than 200% encouraging progress, no doubt, but still more local officials are bringing back mask requirements over concerns about delta. seven counties in the san francisco bay area in effect starting tomorrow. the one in kansas city reinstated just today. louisiana's governor issuing a similar statewide mandate that includes schools, businesses and places of worship, but in new york city the mayor bill de blasio stopped short of requiring masks. instead he's strongly recommending vaccinated new yorkers wear masks indoors in florida, now the epicenter of the pandemic in the u.s., testing is ramping back.
7:04 pm
here you can see the long lines of this site in ft. lauderdale a scene we haven't seen since last year's original surge florida recorded all-time highs in both cases and hospitalizations over the weekend. new york's governor andrew cuomo issuing another vaccine mandate this time for the 68,000 transit workers who run the city's massive subway or bus system workers must get vaccinated or tested weekly starting labor day. the announcement comes less than a week after the governor announced the same requirement for allstate employees valerie castro is live in new york the governor urging businesses to require vaccines. >> reporter: shep, equinox made their announcement that private companies do exactly that, require their patrons to be fully vaccinated equinox will roll out the mandate with the locations here in new york city in early
7:05 pm
september before expanding it to the gyms across the country. soul cycle will do the same. governor cuomo says it's the best approach for businesses including restaurants and entertainment venues as the delta variant continues to spread. >> radio city music hall months ago reopened, vaccine only sold out all the shows private businesses bars, restaurants. go to a vaccine only admission i believe it's in your best business interests >> reporter: and as these new guidelines roll out, companies are having to rethink the start date for when workers will go back to the office in person for many companies it was supposed to be labor day travelers insurance, which is one of the largest companies in connecticut, announced today that they are pushing back their start date by at least a month citing concerns over the delta variant. travelers joined other companies like google and facebook tha made that decision back in july.
7:06 pm
google and facebook will also require their employees to be vaccinated when they eventually go back. tom gimble of lasalle network said they need to make the decision now so workers can make the decision before returning in person. >> what do we do the overwhelming concern when polling employees is that i feel safer around vaccinated people than nonvaccinated people with or without masks if you actually believe this is an employer that this is what's best for your employees, start it today >> reporter: and if it seems like things have changed rapidly in just the last few weeks, well, you're certainly not alone. a new gallup poll says 47% of americans believe covid disruptions will continue until the end of this year if not longer and that was 17% back in june the number of people who are
7:07 pm
very worried they can still be infected with covid, that number was on the decline but now it's gone up by 12%. >> valerie castro live in new york city. thank you. back to florida now where cases and hospitalizations are spiking. local coverage from nbc 6 miami and their reporter, marissa bagg. >> reporter: children are still at low risk by being hospitalized pediatricians say they are catching the virus, more symptomatic and very capable of spreading it to others when compared to one year ago dozens of kids have been checked out here at the emergency room at joe dimaggio's children's hospital here in hollywood only a handful have been hospitalized but one did pass away in june the delta variant of the coronavirus is sending kids to the emergency room at joe dimaggio children's hospital at rising numbers right now seven children are being treated for covid-19, two of them are in the intensive care unit.
7:08 pm
in june 36 kids went to the emergency room and tested positive for the virus in july that number skyrocketed to 190 dr. ronald ford said they're coming in with shortness of breath, fever, other flu-like symptoms some even need oxygen to recover. only a few are actually admitted to the hospital, but those increases worry him about what's to come. >> what's troubling to me is that the trend is headed in that direction. the slope of that curve is so steep right now in terms of new cases. >> reporter: ford says parents come into the e.r. with their kids looking for answers about the virus and ask how to manage a sick kid at home he says mask wearing, social distancing and good hygiene are key right now as kids head back to school in just a few weeks. with the school year starting in just a few weeks, the governor has made it so that schools cannot require students to wear masks. the governor wants that decision
7:09 pm
left up to the parents step in. >> marissa bagg, thank you dr. celine gounder thank you. we're hearing reports out of louisiana and florida about more kids being sicker than last year any reason to believe that delta is impacting those kids differently? >> shepherd, i think the key take home message here is that the delta variant is different it is different from the strains we saw early in the pandemic it is more infectious so it spreads more easily from person to person and the levels of virus in people who are infected are 1,000 times higher in their nose and their throat than they would have been with the early strains of the virus so if you imagine that there's so much more virus in the body, even if a child may be early in the pandemic, wouldn't have had a severe infection, now with that much more virus we're seeing kids getting sick we're seeing kids potentially transmitting onward to others. this is different. this is delta.
7:10 pm
>> you know, businesses are busy trying to figure out when people should return to work. medically speaking were those who were thinking about coming back after labor day, should they be postponing >> this really comes down to whether your work force is vaccinated vaccination is the way out of this pandemic. some people have compared covid to the flu that is not a correct comparison, but we could turn covid into something much more mild like the flu through vaccination. so if you're able to get your work force vaccinated, i think it's a completely different calculation than if you're not >> you know, vaccination rates are growing in areas of need, which is great news. is it too little too late to fight back against this variant? >> i think it's never too little too late any time we can save lives we absolutely should do that so i think everyone is really in the public health community. many local and state officials, the federal government in many parts of the country are trying to double down on our efforts to
7:11 pm
get folks vaccinated i really hope that some of those states that haven't completely come on board start to see how important it is as they see the rates of hospitalizations and deaths skyrocketing again in states like louisiana and florida. >> vin gupta, our doctor around here, is recommending people who got j&j's shot go and get a booster of pfizer or moderna if they can figure out how do it. do you agree or not? >> i think it depends on your risk profile are you an elderly person? do you live in a nursing snoem johnson & johnson, their vaccine was initially authorized by the fda as a low dose one dose and they've actually been studying two doses, higher doses, and that data is expected out later this week or later this month so we should have a more definitive answer to that question shortly. >> all right dr. gounder, great to see you.

7:17 pm
it's great to have you here. italy's marcell jacobs, man, how surprised was everyone >> we were very surprised. people in the track world, you watch the sprints. you watch the progression over this season. he's ran 6.40 in indoors and then he went outdoors and broke the national record for italy at least twice. he did his pr twice in the semis and in the finals. >> still mighty impressive you were fastest man in the world. american fred curly took the silver in tokyo. what do you think it will take for the united states to get back on top of that podium >> mental. it's -- it's seizing the moment. being on that big stage and you know you have to be bigger than the moment you have to think of it as the best practice in your life don't let the moment be bigger than you and when you cross the line, celebrate with everyone else. >> someone thinking of that is american noah liles. do you think he can pull it off?
7:18 pm
>> i think that he's on a different path than everyone else who's running right now he's the world champion. now he's going to try to be the olympic gold medalist and champion he needs to seal that deal no question at all. >> think he's got it >> i think he has it, but he has some tough competition against kenny bederick and knightlin in there as well. >> i want to ask you the what if question on sha'carri richardson she was pulled out of the games from smoking pot the jamaicans took the gold. there was a blistering 10.61 to win the gold do you think sha'carri could have beaten that time? >> i have to be a little biased because i train with sha'carri richardson i've seen her do some amazing things i know she was on pace to run 10.5 taking away nothing from elaine thompson they are legends in their own
7:19 pm

7:25 pm
though still the largest fire in all the nation on saturday it had only been 54% contained and the dixie fire in california now 35% contained after a few days of slow growth gave crews a bit of a leg up fire officials warning that might be the calm before the storm. he said regions moving into a dryer and hotter period which could lead to more and bigger fires. the activity this year far outpacing 2020 more than 500,000 acres in california burned so far this time last year that number was 130,000 acres. california voters passing a law to give breeding pigs a bit more room. now experts are warning that that compassion will cost. why you're going to have to shell out more cash for a slab of degreesy greatness. after months of negotiations and back and forth, the senate laying out the bipartisan infrastructure plan. what made the cut as they worked to advance it?

ruling we have reached out but we haven't heard back. after months of negotiations a bipartisan group of senators has finally written an infrastructure bill and now we know what's in it. the bill is 2700 pages it authorizes more than half a trillion dollars in spending for roads, bridges, and other physical infrastructure. nbc's sawhill kapur. how are they divvying up this money? >> shep, it's finally infrastructure week. $555 billion bill. $110 billion will go to roads, bridges, and highways. that is the core of this about $73 billion will go to modernizing the electricity grids. 66 billion on passenger rail about 39 billion on public transit. 5 billion to upgrade the water
7:41 pm
the only debate how much to spend and how this is going to be paid for. some of these numbers may not be the final version. the congressional budget office is still scoring some of the provisions as we speak, but this is the crux of it. the votes have begun today chuck schumer is in a hurry. wants to get this done this week so they can move onto the separate multi-trillion dollar bill mitch mcconnell has said there's no rush and that the senate should take its time and do what he calls a robust amendment process. of course, shep, the threat of keeping senators in town for the august recess tends to be a motivator to get them to move more quickly and to get legislation wrapped up i suspect at the end of the day some objections will be there. there will be some from the right of the republican party, throw a wrench in this saying we shouldn't do all of this spending they're likely to get this done
7:42 pm
because 67 senators voted to get this done. there's broad buy-in looks like to be the first broad bipartisan win for the president. >> in the senate, then what? >> it goes to the house. nancy pelosi said she will not consider the bill until they send over the bill which addresses the other priorities of senior democrats like transportation chairman peter defasio as well as house progressives who want investments in health care, child care, bolstering climate change -- sorry, mitigating climate change which they say this bill doesn't do a lot of. that is the priority of many democrats. they want both bills in the house before they consider either. >> sahill, thank you. tonight bad news and good news about bust. the cicadas are bur yessing underground. the bad news, another kind of
