but then... oh. ah. okay. plan, pivot. how do you bounce back? you don't, you bounce forward, with serious and reliable internet. powered by the largest gig speed network in america. but is it secure? sure it's secure. and even if the power goes down, your connection doesn't. so how do i do this? you don't do this. we do this, together. bounce forward, with comcast business. experts warn the u.s. may be on the cusp of another surge. >> we really are in a category 5 hurricane status with regard to the rest of the world. in terms of the united states, we're just at the beginning of this surge. >> the more people on a daily basis who get vaccinated, the
better chance you have of blunting or preventing that surge. >> a record-setting weekend for air travel during the pandemic. >> people are feeling like they can go out again. >> top officials say vaccination is the solution to covid-19 fat fatigue. >> every day, 3 million to 4 million are getting vaccinated. that's going to be the solution. >> announcer: this is "new day" with alisyn camerota and john berman. >> good morning. it's monday, april 5th, and it's 6:00. welcome in, u.s. and around the world. it's not unanimous. some experts argue things will remain contained. there are numbers on both sides of this debate. a clear rise in cases of hospitalizations in some states, but vaccinations continue at a
breakneck pace. on saturday for the first time more than 4 million vaccine doses were administered sunday, more than 3 million -- i was one of them. >> congratulations. >> thank you very much. almost 19% of americans now fully vaccinated. 32% have received at least one dose. i have to say, the place was packed. i wanted to cheer. you walk in and there was a line of people. >> was it a pharmacy? >> westchester community center. it was packed with people. you feel so elated like you want to cheer. yay us. it's like the moon landing. >> you'll be happy to know i got my two 16-year-old daughters vaccinated. it's happening in my family. >> that's the lower end limit, right? >> yeah, yeah. >> good for you. also this. in just a few hours the prosecution will call more witnesses in the derek chauvin murder trial. we expect to hear from the
minneapolis police chief who has already called george floyd's death a murder. t another witness we could hear from, an emergency doctor at the hospital where george floyd was taken. so we will have much more on the trial coming up. but we begin with cnn's polo sandoval in detroit. what's the situation there, polo? >> reporter: vaccinations are growing across the country, but even with the increases, there are many parts of the country experiencing an increase in infections and hospitalizations. when you hear from experts, many believe we're on the brink of another wave. you talk to some experts in michigan, they'll say the wave is already here. >> we'll see in the next two weeks the highest cases reported globally since the beginning of the pandemic. >> the u stais passing a huge
milestone. even as the country's vaccination efforts persist, some health expert believe it puts the country on the cusp of a surge in cases. >> we're the exception. now, i understand the absolute resistance in this country to resist that. like drinking barbed wire. we're going to have to respond somehow. >> reporter: 19 states have seen an increase in cases over the past week including parts of the northeast and midwest. cases are up 19% two weeks ago with young people making up a growing number of new cases. health experts say more vaccinations can keep the surge in check. >> i don't think it will be a true fourth wave. if we could just get two or three more weeks of around 3 million vaccines a day, that's going to be a pretty zbik backstop against a fourth surge.
>> reporter: here in michigan, cases increased. this week alone, more than 9,000 new cases. a pastor in detroit encouraging his congregation to get vaccinated. >> you must have your faith, but you must also use the doctor, so get the vaccination. >> i've been letting the people know, follow the science. >> reporter: senior norfolk highlighting the effects of the effort. >> i am concerned about that, but we have to keep hammering that vaccinations is our pathway out. i am very concerned for the children and the youth and the young adults because sometimes they think they're invincible. >> we want to continue to stress that the only way we're going to get out of this is the vaccine because we don't have a cure yet. >> reporter: and in his easter message to the nation, president biden encouraging americans to get vaccinated.
>> getting vaccinated is a moral obligation, one that can save your life and the lives of others. >> reporter: back here in detroit, ford field you see behind meserving as a mass vaccination site. it will only get busier as michigan will expand vaccinations to all ages 16 and up. they're struggling to get that message to get vaccinated to their younger congregates. it's not the vaccine hesitancy as you heard but that they can't get sichlkt as you look at the numbers in michigan, it's not true. >> this virus does not discriminate. thank you, polo, very, very much. cnn's pete muntean is live at reagan national airport. what's the latest there?
>> reporter: the tsa screened 1.85 million people across the country on friday. that's a record since the pandemic. we should get numbers for sunday later on today. but just to put this in the context, three of the last seven days, we've seen 1.5 million people passing through america's airports. these numbers are about 800% greater but still only two-thirds of numbers from 2019 pre-pandemic. the numbers are big enough that delta had to actually fill some middle seat over the weekend to keep up with demand. it said it had to cancel about a hundred flights because of staffing issues. it says it will stop doing that may 1st, but it had do this a little bit early over the weekend. numbers only go up from here. the cdc says only fully
vaccinated americans can travel with low risk to themselves, but the cdc is still advising against travel and says if you do travel, be smart, wear a federally mandated mask at a terminal and on a plane. >> pete muntean modeling right now at the terminal with a mask. joining us now, dr. peter hotez. thanks so much. just so people know what we're talking about, what people like professor osterholm are seeing when they're concerned about being in this new wave. look at michigan where the charts are crystal clear, the cases clearly rising in michigan. you can see there in that graph. and hospitalizations clearly rising as well. if you look at the hospitalizations, they're headed up nearly to where they were at the worst of the fall surge. so is this is fourth wave, professor? >> well, it is, but we're dealing with two americas, john. we've got this massive increase now in michigan and other states
in the upper midwest and to some extent in the northeast. and we have the rest of the country that seems to be staying at still a high level, but not going up presumably because we're vaccinating. so the big question is which way is this going to turn? it depends how quickly we can vaccinate. there are a couple of alarm ing situation. in minnesota, we're seeing young people getting hosptting hospit. but you have a state like florida where you're starting to see the disease increase. it's almost like watching the election. we're looking at states like florida. will florida flip and start accelerating and other parts of the country where the b.1.1.7. variant is starting to pred also
accelerate. that's where we are right now. >> dr. hotez, i've been readingston california variant, b .1 .4 .2 .7. it doesn't seem as responsive to vaccines. why aren't we talking more about the california variant? >> well, there are about four or five a variants like that. the b.1.1.7. variant, all of the vaccines work really well against that. that's the dominant one right now. have other ones. the p-1 out of brazil. the one out of south africa, california, and a new one in san francisco that we're talking about. those don't seem to be picking up as quickly as the b.1.1.7. variant. so right now i think the key is
to vaccinate, and all of those vaccinations work well against the b.1.1.7. variant. later on, i think, toward the end of the year, early next year, we're going to have to give a boost which is specifically tailored toward some of the newer variants, but it's not the most pressing issue right now. >> i set this up for a debate where some say it's going to cause a fourth wave and others think we're coming to an end. we're at an optimistic rate right now and it's wonderful. is what we're talking about is that by may a lot more will be vacc vaccinated, but a lot more will get sick and die that didn't have to? >> you hit it perfectly. the next six weeks now is the crunch time where a lot of people can get very sick with
longcovid. a number of young people will get very sick b in the icu, maybe losing their lives. a matter of keeping focus, discipline for the next six weeks until we can fully vaccinate people. and once we get to the other side, we'll be in a very good place. right now we're looking at parts of the country, mostly the northern states, that are really worrisome. and now i'm looking at florida and other places where the b.1.1.7. variant is dominated. >> are we seeing half vaccinated people getting hospitalized? >> not a lot. i think it's -- you know, unless they're getting exposed right around the time they're first getting vaccinated, i think it's mostly the unvaccinated individuals, a lot of people who are even defiant of getting vaccines that worries me. and so we're trying to do a lot of outreach now to convince everybody that vaccines are
here. you can get vaccinated. this is the time to do it. unfortunately we've got a whole segment of the country that sees not getting vaccinated as part of their badge of honor and political defiance and it's really traj sniec there are still a lot of people not getting vaccinated because they're too young. i heard your girls got vaccinated and they're 16. that's terrific. that's the bottom end of those who can get the pfizer vaccine. what about the younger people getting sick and heading to the hospital and the victims of what might be a fourth wave. what does this mean? we know they're not getting as sick or as asymptomatic, but how do they suffer? >> remember, it's more transmissible, higher hospitalization rates and higher mortality. we're about almost three-quarters of older americans who have been vaccinated now, so this is an opportunistic virus.
what we're seeing is a lot of younger adults who are not yet vaccinated getting sick, and that's probably because of the b.1.1.7. variant. and even those who are not being hospitalized. we're seeing about a third of them get long h-haul covid symptoms like shortness of breath and heart palpitations. it's a matter of keeping everyone focused, not getting reckless at this point, and getting everyone vaccinated. >> dr. hotez, thank you as always. >> thank you so much. we have brand-new reporting on where american jobs play in this huge infrastructure idea and where it's heading. what does the public say about it? does it have democratic support? what does it mean for you? that's next.
more community. but with my hiv treatment,... there's not more medicines in my pill. i talked to my doctor... and switched to... fewer medicines with dovato. prescription dovato is for some adults who are starting hiv-1 treatment or replacing their current hiv-1 regimen. with... just 2 medicines... in 1 pill,... dovato is as effective as a 3-drug regimen... to help you reach and stay undetectable. research shows people who take hiv treatment as prescribed... and get to and stay undetectable... can no longer transmit hiv through sex. don't take dovato if you're allergic to any of its ingredients... or if you take dofetilide. hepatitis b can become harder to treat while taking dovato. do not stop dovato without talking to your doctor,... as your hepatitis b may worsen or become life-threatening. serious or life-threatening side effects can occur, including... allergic reactions, lactic acid buildup, and liver problems. if you have a rash and other symptoms of an allergic reaction,... stop taking dovato and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, including hepatitis b or c,... or if you are, may be, or plan to be pregnant.
your doctor may prescribe a different medicine... than dovato if you plan to be pregnant or if pregnancy is confirmed during the first trimester. dovato may harm your unborn baby. use effective birth control... while taking dovato. most common side effects are headache, nausea,... diarrhea, trouble sleeping, tiredness, and anxiety. so much goes... into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. ask your doctor about dovato—i did. new projects means new project managers.

on us spending more and allowing us to lose the race globally, he's going to do that, however, his sincere preference, his open hand is for republicans to come to the table and say, if you don't like this, how would you pay for it? if you don't like this, what would you include. >> that was energy secretary jennifer granholm hinting if they pass the infrastructure plan without any gop support and many are arguing against the plan. joining us now, rachel bade and margaret talev. great to see both of you.
margaret, i think she's more than hinting they might go it alone without republican support. i mean that's what they want to do. and what republicans keep saying -- and i want you to tell us if this is legitimate and has a chance, they're like, let's do this in a bipartisan way. that's what you hear some of them saying. you're not giving us a chance to be bipartisan. let's boil it down. let's cut the big aspirational plan down, and you could get republicans onboard. >> yeah. i don't think biden is putting all of his eggs on the we'll bring republicans onboard argument. here's what they're looking at doing. the main task is making sure he can hold democrats together, right? if it looks like there's any chance he could get any republican votes, the way that they can handle this is by breaking the infrastructure legislation up into a few
different packages, if that makes it easier. but they're looking at using budget reconciliations so they can do this with 51 votes instead of 60-vote increments. the challenge at this point has been keeping enough of the moderate democrats who don't want quite as much spending on quite as much stuff onboard as they also try to convince the progressive wing, aoc and other folks, you know, that $3 trillion or $4 trillion over a decade is quite a lot of money. >> rachel, i took a week off. >> you did? >> i did. i needed a break. it was a trial. >> you look very refreshed. >> i was surprised to come back this week and find that matt gaetz still a member of congress and in good standing. what is he charged with? not charged but investigated for. >> sex crimes and trafficking
against an underaged girl and other things involving drugs and money. >> that sounds bad to me, coming back from vacation. but i understand kevin mccarthy an and other republicans are like, we're cool with this now. what's the situation here? >> i always talk with house republicans whenever a scandal comes up, and one of the top things i hear is, we miss the john boehner days. the former speaker had no tolerance for this kind of scandal. he would tell them, you need to withdraw from office. kevin mccarthy is a very different kind of leader. he doesn't like to be confrontational. and matt gaetz as you know is a very close ally of the former prrkts donald trump. you see trump, mccarthy, he's doing a delicate tap dance.
you can't say that anymore. he's aligned himself with the president. he's in a position where he's not going to call for gaetz to resign until gaetz is charged with something because he doesn't want to upset the former president. gaetz has a reputation on capitol hill even before these reports came out. in subsequent reports we saw some stories that he is regularly bragging about his relationships with other -- and showing nude photos of women to other congressmen. let's just say this is a scandal that boehner would never tolerate. kevin mccarthy is not john boehner. >> we're so far from the boehner days it feels like, margaret. what are your thoughts next with matt gaetz? >> i think that there 's so muc tension with regard to the republican party and gaetz to
begin with. there are sex scandals and then there are sex scandals. anything involving a person who is under the age of 18 and anything that could have a potential impact on the midterm elections, not to be crass about it, we're talking politicians and politics, these are really serious concerns, and circumstance again, from a purely political perspective, the district that congressman gaetz represents is heavily conservative, which means that, number one, this is a problem for many constituents in the district, but, number two, this is a simple district for republicans to hold, whoever they put in the seat. and so mccarthy and other republicans are going to be looking to insulate the idea that that controversy, that scandal could be painted with a broad brush across the rest of the party. so gaetz is in a lot of political trouble. his legal troubles right now remain much bigger than his
political troubles though. >> margaret talev, a veteran -- >> one additional thing i thought of. gaetz has been leading the charge for trump on the inside of the house republican conference to take out republicans who voted to impeach the president. so it will be interesting to watch how this affects people like liz cheney who he went out to wyoming and stirred up a lot of trouble, people talking about how they want a primary to get her out of office. what does this mean for the ten republicans who don't have him hounding him. >> rachel bade, margaret talev, thank you very much. testimony in the derek chauvin trial will begin in a few hours and we'll break down what to expect next. oh wowzers, what a special family! special like my fudge stripes.

in just a few hours testimony will resume in the derek chauvin murder trial. the former minneapolis police officer is charged with killing george floyd. the police chief is among those. josh campbell is live with a preview. good morning, josh. >> reporter: good morning. week two is about to start. week one was very compelling. george floyd's former girlfriend really humanized him, talked about him as a witness. but it was two senior minneapolis police officers who were the most devastating for the defense, both of the officers dejecting the notion that derek chauvin was somehow operating with policy when he placed his knee on george floyd's neck for almost nine minutes. we expect to hear from the
police chief here in minneapolis as well as a supervising physician that was on duty that night as medical experts tried to saving george floyd's life. now, for your his part, the chief, we've heard from him publicly. obviously chauvin was fired. we expect he will continue this steam we have heard from the law enforcement officers here, and that is chauvin was not acting as a police officer should for the medical expert's part, the doctor who was on duty that night, according to the opening statements from the prosecution. this was a doctor who supervised taking blood samples from floyd and obviously trying to work on him and save him. that's going to be key because the defense's strategy here has been to focus on george floyd and perhaps turn the table saying it wasn't chauvin's actions that resulted in death but perhaps the idea that he was under the influence of drugs and that may have contributed to his death. we expect prosecutors to have this doctor explain what happen and then we expect the defense,
according to what we've seen in the past to really go after that medical causation with the cause of death. again, trial will get started here just in a few hours. we will be covering it. we will obviously continue to bring you the very latest. john. >> josh campbell, thank you so much for your reporting from minneapolis. appreciate it. to understand the significance of what we're seeing and what we will see, we're joined by cnn analyst elie honig. the police chief will testify. this is not something you see every day in a trial. >> get ready. this will be a crucial make-or-break moment in the trial. the chief gave a public statement last year a month or so after the murder. here's what chief arradondo said. mr. floyd's tragic death was not due to a lack of training. the training was there. chauvin knew what he was doing. the officers knew what was happening. one intentionally caused it and
the others failed to prevent this. this was murder. it wasn't a look of training. john, there is no ambiguity about what he said here. this is murder. that's going to be a dramatically incredible moment when the chief takes the stand to testify against one of his own former officers. >> elie, if you were prosecuting this case, how would you feel? >> at this point as a prosecutor, i would be thrilled with how the case has come in. the evidence has been clear and compelling. one of the factors here is we have so much evidence from the video footage, the body camera footage, surveillance video. i've never seen a case with so much on video. as a result, there's little question with who did what to whom exactly from all different angles. on top of that, we've heard from a series of credible compelling witnesses. let's take a look. >> mr. floyd was vocal with his
sorriness and pain and distress he was going through. >> he got his knee on his neck, between his neck and back, holding him down. >> his knee was on his neck. there were two other officers holding him down as well. >> three grown men is a lot of weight on somebody, too much. >> the defense offered very little resistance to these witnesses. they didn't cross-examine them and they made only minor comments. i'll say this. mark my words. the defense will push back hard this week. >> you feel good before the defense actually gets in the game, so what do you expect from the defense, elie? >> the first issue they're going to raise is police training. the prosecution is going to argue he violated the police training. the defense will speak opposite of that. you heard that chauvin's actions were totally unnecessary and
dangerous, but the defense gave us a hint in their opening how they're going to push back. let's take a listen. >> you will learn that derek chauvin did exactly what he had been trained to do over the course of his 19-year career. >> so that will be the defense, but let me tell you both from common sense and from my own experience working with police, it's going to be hard to understand how it could possibly be police training and policy to put a knee to someone's neck for nine minutes and 29 seconds. we'll see how they make that case today. >> elie honig, we'll be watching very carefully as will you. thanks for being with us. >> thank you. cnn has exclusive new images showing russia's huge military buildup in the arctic. new details about a torpedo the russians are developing that could cause, what we're told, could be radio active tsunamis

arctic and that russia is testing new weapons. experts are particularly concerned about a stealth torpedo designed to get past host defenses. cnn's nick paton walsh has more in this exclusive report. >> reporter: it's a new frontier with all the wrong reasons. they're seeing the arctic melt fast and building a military gap, some of it on alaska's doorstep. it's like the poseidon. it's designed, say russian officials, to sneak past u.s. coastal defenses and detonate a warhead causing a radioactive tsunami to hit the east coast with contaminated water. experts told cnt the wnn the wis
very real and it's not only the ecological damage that could be deft. >> it's not in the testing phase. a strategic system that's enabled at targets that has influence beyond the regions. >> reporter: some said russian president putin was fantasizing when he revealed this and others like the missile of 2018. but continuing development and tests make them very real. >> russia is projecting an image as it's developing new tech knoll jirk and this, of course, is destabilizing the strategic balance. >> they're starting to balance those capabilities that could reach the united states and its nato allies. >> reporter: that is not all russia is up to. cnn has obtained satellite images of bases along the coastline, part of what a state department official called a military challenge. close to alaska are two new
radar stations. a quick reaction alert force has bombers and jets. a thin strip of land has seen over seven years the slow growth of a large air strip. and in the northernmost point is another base that's sprung up since 2015, one of several in the arctic decorated in the colors of the russian flag. they're both home to mig 31 jets' recent arrivals. and further on peninsula over the past four years experts believe a storage facility is slowly being built up with the poseidon torpedo. russia has had its eye on becoming the arctic power for years and is making a move to happen. yes, it's the coastline, but u.s. officials have expressed concerns to me that this buildup is not just about protecting but also projecting power across the
ice even toward the north pole. russia released this video in january of the first time a freighter got through the ice in the east in the thick winter to sell a new trade route along its northern coast. it's a possible money maker fehr the kremlin, cutting the current journey time from asia to the suez canal nearly in happen. u.s. officials voiced concerns that russia is already demanding they use russian crews. they have sent b1 bombers to fly out of and marines to train in norway. who gets there first makes the rules, they say, for a rush nobody wants to be conquerable. al alisyn, we reached out. we received no response to. that russia has always maintained that its goals there are economic and peaceful,
simply about developing their northern coastline. remember, it is their coast. but they've relied on the ice to act as a defensive force for them, but the ice is disappearing. frankly for me the most terrifying aspect is quite how fast that's is disappearing. alisyn? >> nick, what an incredible report and evidence you've been able to show us. thank you very much for that. okay. developing this morn, prime minister benjamin netanyahu appearing in court for his corruption trial. he's pleaded not guilty. the trial was delayed several times due to coronavirus restrictions and last month's general election which ended in another deadlock. >> and -- dramatic developments. they're accusing the former crown prince of plotting to

school kids have been struggling but now they're getting relief funds. we report on how one school district plans to make the stimulus work. >> we've always wanted to make this happen, so let's make it happen. >> reporter: as another challenging school year is coming to an end, they're dreaming about the future. >> we've been through so much as
a country through the pandemic, and so to be able to get these dollars, it's exciting because we get to dream. so let's do. >> reporter: federal money is coming into districts within the next 60 days. it will help get schools back to where they were pre-pandemic and possibly make them better than they were. >> you have more tools available to you now than you've had maybe in a long time, so what does that mean? >> for us in oklahoma we do not invest inadequately, so this investment will allow us not only to provide direct services to our children and families but it's going to help us grow and expand. >> it sets aside $129 billion for education. those dollars flow from washington across the country and end in states where they're dispersed to school districts like the one in tulsa. district leaders divide it
between all of their schools. some of it will land here, at monroe demonstration academy middle school. >> being able to be back in person with the social distancing, with masks, with desk shields has been amazing to watch kids get back into the groove of things. >> reporter: tulsa schools plan to get $128 million from the american rescue plan act over the next three years. that money is earmarked to not only get classrooms open, but for summer enrichment programs, after school child care, even a graduation boot camp free to all students. >> graduation is priority, and you still need one or two credits left to graduate, and we need to help you get there. >> reporter: back at monroe, interim principal rob kaiser is excited about what this money can do. >> do you get the feeling students are excited to get back
to school and going all summer? >> i do. it's changing the narrative. it's going to be the time where students get academics in the morning and really explore their interests, be around their friends to be kids. >> reporter: nicholas lopez, an eighth grader, is looking forward to graduation and starting high school. he says the newly funded programs at monroe can have a big impact on students like him. >> i actually would like it to go according to plan. i would like it to happen. like it's going to get us back to the way we were before the pandemic. i don't know if i'm saying that right. >> reporter: school administrators are now poised to execute that plan. >> it's our responsibility as educators at the student level to ensure we're experts at the dollars. >> reporter: to make sure it has a lasting impact beyond the short term -- >> i'm a teacher.
that stuff can't happen without the stimulus money, and we're really excited. >> reporter: evan mcmorris-santoro, cnn, tulsa, oklahoma. >> our thanks to evan for that. okay, john. march madness ends tonight. i think when you see my position in the cnn bracket challenge, you will reconsider my sports genius and everything you thought you knew. >> i'm going to rethink everything. this changes everything. >> it really does change everything you thought you knew. more about my closet sports knowledge and everything in the game next in the "bleacher report."
