2:00 am
coronavirus cases are on the rise in some states despite a major vaccination push. we'll take a closer look at why places like michigan are sounding the alarm. plus, gathering to remember. what we're learning about the victims of the mass shooting in the indianapolis fed ex facility and a stilt on edge as protests over daunte wright's death continues and minneapolis prepares for closing arguments in the derek chauvin trial. we're watching here in the
2:01 am
united states, canada, and around the world. this is cnn news room. >> three million and counting, just one day after the world passed a sad and staggering milestone the number of deaths from covid is still climbing. since then, another 11,000 people have died from the virus. in the u.s. the death toll is the worst in the world with 556,000 is killed by the coronavirus. they projection nearly 620,000.
2:02 am
one of the things that could bring the number of cases down. it is almost a quarter of the population that is now filly vaccinated. michigan's third covid wave is so fierce that hospitals are running out of space. nearly 10,000 new cases on saturday alone. >> everything health care facilities in the state of michigan reporting that they have more to climb even exceeding those numbers and that is the case right now. the largest health care systems in the area saying they continue to see hospitalizations there
2:03 am
climb. they are continuing to notice the patients get younger. and many of those have attended large gatherings. but the doctor also said that half of the patients that he is seeing right no are infected with that highly contagious b 117 variant. >> i'm worried that there could be others that have escaped the system. >> the others include recommendations to avoid indoor dining and that should be a requirement for now as the state
2:04 am
tries to drop some of these numbers. michigan's health authority calling the situation that is happening here in michigan dire. cnn, detroit. dr. abdul alsaed is joining me now. thank you for joining us. the two questions is why issue and why now? >> what we're seeing here is the cull min culmination of variants. we have been the per capita leader in be117 cases. part of it has been policy, aggressive reopening.
2:05 am
we have active indoor sports, we have gym and casino reopenings. and also the optimism that a post vaccine could usher in. we have about 26% of people that are fully fax nated. so between the cases and the vaccines and reopening. >> it is still perplexes, but you were talking about the vaccines there and the over optimism. and you heard them pleading about the vaccines.
2:06 am
is p there no correlation there? >> so there is two points here. the vaccines are working and the fact that we're not seeing people in their 60s, 70s, and 80s that the vaccines are protective and it is great news on that front. imagine what it would be if those most vulnerable were hospitalized or killed because of this. we have to understand the dynamics. we know it takes about ten days from when someone is vaccinated to when they protect the antibodies. and we know it is three to three to five days. that would take something on the order of three weeks to get us to where we have heard immunity.
2:07 am
so yes, we need a lock down here, and we need to reduce the spread of this virus among folks and do what needs to be done here even as we wait for more vaccinations. in the end they will be the key, but vaccines are really great at preventing surges, but not that great at responding to them. >> and the governor has taken some steps to litigate this. they were so unpopular do you think that political crisis we have seen there has discouraged a stronger response? >> there is no doubt there is a clear link between politics and
2:08 am
public health, and the way it has been politicized by the right-wing extremists really accounts for the fact that covid is taking 560,000 lives overall. but what made the governor a national hero in the spring and the fall is how quick she was to lock down even in the face of that political pressure. we have hospitalizations and we need that same kind of heroism now. >> thank you so much for joining us, i appreciate it. at least a third of the death are from europe. let's bring in reporter from
2:09 am
paris. >> that's right, a variant driven wave here in europe that has been particularly difficult for authorities to identify. now in partial lock down, france is beginning to see the fruits of the restrictions placed in 16 regions of france. pretty district restrictions that are seeing finally a gipping of a fall in the number of covid-19 patients in french icus. that is the good news. the bad news is it took some extremely strict ismeasures to t there. now the vaccines appear to be making progress. 400,000 people being vaccinated every day here in france. they saw a record this week, 700,000 in a single day. so the vaccination campaign
2:10 am
that's have faltered on poor flies seem to finally pick up pace but it will take a greater pace to get to where europe needs to be. as a reminder the variants continue to cause questions and concerns here in europe. france announced that it was pausing flights from brazil to france, but that it is putting in a strict quarantine procedure. a remind near those variants are great concern here in france and they fear that they could once again prove to be a game changer as they did just before the third wave came. >> absolutely and the race to get a control of this for their own health, but also those countries desperate to revive their tournaism city that was basically wiped out last year. >> yeah, it's been a first wave,
2:11 am
and so many countries that are heavily dependent on hundreds of millions in industry, they're not able to be involved at all. they have been at the store front for a push. and they will allow europeans to cross borders more freely until that heard immunity has been reached. they vowed there would be two doses available. and the rest is up to the member states. until that happen it's will be about restrictions to prevent new variants. and in the meantime, europeans really want to use vaccine pass ports so that small proportion can once again go enjoy the busy summer season.
2:12 am
greece is saying they will allow people to come in if they can prove their vaccinated status or their negative status, and grease wants to have people come through without quarantines. so trying to get some semblance back. something of a semblance of normality that the economy can once again start as europe continues to grapple with these numbers and fairly disappointing vaccination figures. >> cnn melissa bell in paris for us. thank you so much. >> india is fighting a devastating spike in covid cases. they are reporting more than
2:13 am
66,000 cases. they say the city is facing a huge shortage of hospital beds. the surprise to me was how relatively well, and real stevely is the word. much worse and now more worries about if there will be enough vaccines. >> since you put that first question to me, the reason we're seeing more of the numbers, the second group and the first wave if you remember there was lock downs that were implemented across ind because there was a control on the numbers. this time the economy is open, there has been no restrictions really from october to february of this year.
2:14 am
and the guideline that's are implemented by the government. this is a staggering number. and the problem is that we're concern it'd will peak in the coming days. he has asked for a supply of remdesivir and oxygen. also appealing to the deputies that are currently in a northern city attending one of the biggest religious festivals in the world. now let this be symbolic, but two top leaders have aagreed to this but that doesn't mean that it will end any time soon. over 5500 people came and have
2:15 am
been infected in the city itself. imagine what this could turn into if some severe gouidelines were not put in place. it is the highest number that the capitol of the country has seen. there are very simple guidelines in place here with weekend curfews, and even the state chief minister came out to say yes, there is a sortage of oxygen supply. if you just look at election rallies taking place there are campaigns. unfortunately politicians that should be in the forefront are going ahead to flout social gooid lines.
2:16 am
they are flouting what is happening and they are staying that way in the country. >>. >> indianapolis mourning the eight lives lost. it is filled with tears and prayers. we'll have the latest on how the community is coping and they are demandist police accountability. the george floyd case is going to the jury. stay with us. i air fry oven. make family-sized meals fast. and because it's a ninja foodi, it c can do things no other oven can, like flip away. the nininja foodi air fry ove, the oven that crisps and flips away.

2:49 am
trips. prince william and kate, the duchess of cambridge. we have seen other members taking up some of the work. so i think we will see a steady transition. i think the queen will possibly spend more time here in windsor as well but there is no retirement for a queen or king. and i think that is why there is so much love and respect for the queen and clearly for prince phillip as well. the sense that they dedicated their whole lives to service and duty. >> thank you for all of the great reporting. you're watching cnn news room, we'll be right back.
