4:10 am
the open so it looks like they're not hiding anything. on the one hand this evidence tends to show that there was somebody apparently going into f the house but on the other hand it tends to show that, hey, these -- this is why these folks were also amped up and worried about somebody burglarizing the neighborhood and that's why they maybe overreacted to somebody jogging in the neighborhood. a mixed bag and did a good job dealing with it on direct and their case in chief. another person has died from injuries sustained at the astroworld festival. 22-year-old college seniorshaha. she's the ninth person to die after hundreds were hurt in a crowd surge as the her name, barthi shahani she's the ninth person to die after hundreds were hurt in a crowd surge as the rapper travis scott took the stage the lawyer for shahani's family said she died last night her parents described her as a kind, young woman with a bright

4:14 am
nationwide drill to prepare for possible new variants. the israeli prime minister said it had the format of a war game. in the united states progress appears to have stalled. there's new data that shows infections are once again starting to rise slightly. situations are very different depending on exactly where you live a dozen states are reporting at least a 20% increase in average daily cases over the past week those states with increases are shown here in red. the states in yellow are all seeing modest increases and the states in green now report declines in new infections even in states where cases are trending down, many are still facing outbreaks in some areas in california the governor, gavin newsom, says people there need to be ready for another potential surge. >> winter is coming. i mean, covid is not taking the winter off and it's hard but we're getting through it we'll get through it but it's going to require all of

us. >> governor newsom says california had the lowest case rate in the country earlier this fall but now data shows it ranks 16th cnbc's meg tirrell covers health and science for us meg, do we know if we're coming for another winter spike here? >> shep, there is concern among some experts that the waves we're seeing across europe could be a sign of what's to come heading into the winter for the u.s. europe where the while a number of european countries are seeing surges, the worst death rates are in eastern europe where the vaccination rates are lowest countries like romania and ukraine. w.h.o.'s regional director pointing to waning vaccination rates and a relaxation rate of public health measures as reasons of surges. there's optimism that we're close to the end and dr. scott gottleib said january is a time we could be emerging from the worst. it's likely to get worse before it gets better as the u.s. works
4:16 am
its way through the delta wave while cases have plateaued at jn 70,000 per day, what that doesn't show nationally at just more than 70,000 per day, what that doesn't show is more localized surges and summaries the hot spot in late summer, states have some of the country's lowest transmission rates. the cdc data shows almost 70% of counties in the u.s. still have high levels of transmission. another 17% considered substantial. after mike osterholm calls right now a tipping point for the u.s. and says he's closely watching a few region seeing increases. states in the four corners area, the upper midwest and the northeast. also closely watching new york and california, states he sees as bellwethers with their big cities there is an expectation that places with high vaccination rates with lots of immunity will see less severe disease.

public health efforts are doubling down on all to get vaccinated. >> meg tirrell, thank you. president biden's expected to meet virtually with the chinese president xi jinping next week. now cnbc's kayla tausche reports the chinese leader will likely personally invite mr. biden to come to beijing for next year's olympics the decision to attend or decline the invitation could be a political mine field human rights advocates have been calling for a boycott of the winter games because of china's long list of alleged abuses. advocates have dubbed the games the genocide olympics. now kayla tausche is with us now kayla, what are your sources telling you? >> reporter: shep, i'm told chinese officials have canvassed foreign policies to see how it will be received the answer is not well g7 nations are discussing a coordinated diplomatic boycott of the gamesd two western diplot
4:18 am
athletes would participate but officials would stay home. and two western diplomats tell me no final decision on attendance has been made the boycott has broad support and bipartisan senators wants an upcoming defense spending bill to block funding from government travel to the games. with that backdrop a potential invitation from president xi would be seen as something of a dare to biden. decline and in parallel relationship to beijing that's already on fragile footing and tensions over taiwan and technology are high excepting, however unlikely, would anger allies and president biden's own administration messaging president xi hasn't left china since the pandemic began and wouldn't attend that summit if invited. he could skip beijing's own game if he gets wind no other leaders will be there.
