1:00 am
hello to our welcome to our viewers joining us in the united states and around the world. you're watching "cnn news room." just ahead, minneapolis, minnesota on edge ready for the final moments of the murder trial of derek chauvin. we are just hours away from the closing arguments. today is the deadline for states to make more american adults eligible for the covid vaccine. the problem not all adults want
1:01 am
the shot. russia on a collision course with the u.s. and its allies. serious concern over the health of imprisoned dissident alexi navalni. one of many voting issues. good to have you with us. in just a matter of hours, closing arguments get underway in one of the most closely watched police brutality trials in decades. minneapolis is a city on edge. its bracing for potentially massive protests after a verdict in the trial of derek chauvin. he is the former police officer facing second-degree murder and other charges in the death of george floyd last year, which sparked global demonstrations. national guard troops are now
1:02 am
deployed in minneapolis. barriers are up around some government buildings. other u.s. cities have taken similar measures. activists and community members gathered sunday at the place where george floyd died. sara sidner was there and she has a look at the mood on the ground in minneapolis. >> reporter: at george floyd square, the day before the closing arguments in the trial against the former officer accused of murdering him, this place has turned into a place of solidarity between black folks and asian folks, latino folks and white folks. it's a place to mourn. i want to give you a look at what this place looks like. this has been here since the day george floyd died. some of the things are new. you see the name of daunte wright here. killed by a police officer who faces manslaughter charges. george floyd's image is still everywhere here. over everything. people come here to mourn his death.
1:03 am
they come here calling for change. they come here like the mother who is speaking now to talk about their children who have been killed. hers in a jail. some of the others behind her, their children were killed by police. so this is really a place where people come hoping for change. talking about change. demanding change. right here is where george floyd took his last breath. you can see the outline they have made his body outline. they have given him wings. you can see those laid by his girlfriend the day before she testified in the derek chauvin trial. it's a place of gathering. it's a place that is constantly changing but there's always here -- people are always here tending to the memorial to try to make sure that the memory is never forgotten what happened
1:04 am
here outside cup foods in minneapolis. sara sidner, cnn, minneapolis. police say disturbing acts of vandalism appear to be connected to the testimony of a defense witness in derek chauvin's murder trial. another act of vandalism took place at a nearby mall where the large hand statute was smeared with pig's blood. it was testified that derek chauvin was justified for pinning floyd to the ground for more than nine minutes. santa rosa police believe the vandals were targeting broad for his testimony. in chicago protesters have been demanding justice for the 13-year-old shot and killed by police. last month's shooting was captured on newly released video sparking protests across the
1:05 am
city. cnn's ryan young reports. >> reporter: it's been a tough week for the city of chicago. you can see behind me the spot the 13-year-old adam toledo lost his life. that's the memorial there. people have shown up to participate in a protest in his memory. they're calling for justice and change in the streets in the city of chicago. the mayor made an impassioned speech at the idea that the city failed adam. they want to curb the violence on streets. we talked to one person, and he said more has to be done to curb the violence. >> it's tough. it's tough. you know, kid was real young and the cops have a big history of treating us brutally. anybody that is nonwhite, we get treated brutally. you can feel it in the whole community. it's a tougher community than anything on the north side. that's how we grow up and we're set to failure from the
1:06 am
beginning. >> reporter: we talked to marchers, they want more action how cpd interacts with them on a day-to-day basis. they want to see justice when it comes to how the 13-year-old was handled. and community members in indiana are mourning eight people killed in a mass shooting at a fedex facility last week. people gathered sunday in beach grove for a vigil. the city's mayor had a personal connection with one of the victims and visibly emotional as he spoke to the crowd. >> she is one of our bright, young citizens who has been called home. i'm never going to question why but she was. now she's standing on the right hand of god. looking down on us. that is refreshing to me --
1:07 am
[ crying ] i'm sorry. >> fedex has donated $1 million to survivors and families of the shooting victims. the cdc is now reporting half of all adults in the u.s. have received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine. a quarter of the population is now fully vaccinated. nearly 3.5 million doses were administered since saturday. despite all that, cases are surging in some parts of the country, including in michigan. cnn's polo sandoval has the latest. >> reporter: monday is the day when the biden administration wants states across the nation to open up covid-19 vaccine el zwroiblt all adults, but vaccination efforts have slowed. cdc data showing a drop in the number of vaccines administered. the drop was not unexpected due to allocation issues. now distribution of j&j's vaccine is on pause due to concern about blood clots.
1:08 am
the nation's top infectious disease expert is hoping. >> i would imagine with a we'll see it would come back and come back in some sort of either warning or restriction. again, i don't know. i don't want to be ahead of them. >> reporter: it's getting easier in some parts of the country to secure a vaccine appointment. walk up options are being offered for most, including at the mercedes-benz stadium where you don't need an appointment anywhere. there's no greater need than in michigan. >> people tired and dropping protocols. >> reporter: covid-19 patients are lining some hospital hallways said the state's health authority. and in detroit, front line health care workers are
1:09 am
struggling to keep up with the third surge. >> 13 months is a long time to be dominated by this one disease. >> reporter: dr. joel noticing this time covid patients are younger and many of them extremely sick. he said some of them have admitted to having gathered in large groups. >> i haven't seen my kids in well over a year. i get it. i really do. but if we don't stay diligent and really continue to follow the general simple practices we started last year, we're going to potentially be doing this over and over again. >> reporter: doctors plead fellow michiganers. polo sandoval, cnn, detroit. joining me now is a professor in the department of epidemiology at the ucla fielding school of public health. good to have you with us. >> nice to be here. >> so dr. anthony fauci predicts the j&j vaccine will likely be
1:10 am
made available again by friday but with restrictions or warnings attached after the rare blood clots in women. what will those restrictions likely be, do you think? >> well, it's going to depend upon what the data shows. there is a potential that there could be restrictions, for example, for women on birth control pills or on hormone-replacement therapy. it could be a subset of adults that have certain conditions if the data bears out there are actually conditions that make people more susceptible to these kinds of rare blood clots. again, these are very, very rare in the general p-- population ad only six instances out of almost 7 million doses. so very rare. we're still waiting on data. >> yeah. they're being cautious in this
1:11 am
instance, as you said. incredibly rare. despite covid cases surging in some states here in the united states, the good news is that 50% of the u.s. adult population has had at least one covid vaccine dose. 25% are now fully vaccinated. so far polls show still about 25% say they don't intend to get vaccinated. one particular fox anchor is helping to spread falsehood about vaccine safety, which, of course, is increasing that sense of hesitancy. how concerned are you about that? what could be the consequences, if a quarter of the population doesn't get vaccinated in the end? >> well, you brought up an important appointment. we are at a really great moment we have reached 50% of all adults getting vaccinated or at least one dose, which is really fantastic news! we've always known this last mile is going to be the hardest. and we should be, you know, this isn't just about people who are
1:12 am
all absolutely dead set against getting the vaccine. there are people who are hesitant. it's okay to have questions about the vaccine. i've been running studies on vaccine hesitancy and health workers and expanding into other populations. there's a percentage of people who are concerned. they have questions. they're waiting for the questions to be answered. i think it's going to be incumbent upon the public health community to do a good job of listening to the questions people have and finding a good way to be able to respond to them. >> and that was ucla's professor of epidemiology amber moin speaking to me earlier. greece is dropping quarantine restrictions for some travelers. starting today visitors from the european union, the uk, uk, israel, serbia, and the uae is no longer required to self-isolate on arrival, as long as they've been vaccinated or tests negative for covid-19.
1:13 am
and french president said eu countries are working on a special pass to facilitate travel inside the block for u.s. citizens who are vaccinated or can show they've tested negative for the virus. cnn's melissa bell is following travel develops from paris. and linda is in athens. good to sea you both. melissa, let's start with you. how will the special pass of vaccinated americans and other tourists work? >> the idea the priority for europeans to be able to get themselves across each other's borders. we'll be seeing over the course of the last few months the restrictions essentially made that difficult. essentially the european union tourism industry has been at a stand still. so the priority to create european digital passport that allows people to show they've been vaccinated or are immune because they've recently had covid-19 and, therefore, able to avoid the kind of quarantines
1:14 am
that made things difficult the last few months. france also now looking beyond may 15th to start reopening terraces and museums and the things shut down since the month of october. the idea even as europe starts to get its vaccination programs a little bit more up and running, trying to improve the pace of those that at least the free movement of people will begin to increase amid that. much-needed help for europe's battered economy. >>s a -- a step in the right direction. greece plans to lift quarantine rules for vaccinated tourists. how will this work? and what level of proof will be required? >> reporter: it opened to over 30 countries including the usa, uae, israel. no quarantine is required for those arriving. vaccination proof or cpr test 72 hours prior to arrival is
1:15 am
required. there will be targeted testing as entry points. now the greek tourism ministry has been careful about describing it as baby steps to an official opening in four weeks from now may 14th. it said this is the way to test the system. those coming into greece before then it's the same rules applying. there are some restrictions concerning mobility and greece also hopes this eu green pass that we've heard about will be ready as soon as possible. officials putting it as a date sometime in june. greece has been a supporter of the pass. the country heavily dependent on tourist. about 25% of jobs, 20% of gdp and, you know, during the time, i've been traveling from the north to the south discussing tourism with people. it seems to be on everyone's minds simply because so many, so
1:16 am
many of its economy is so dependent on it. small islands have been vaccinating their population. greece is moving their vaccinations to bigger areas, as well. and industry experts say there's a slow start. they see travel resuming in july. a lot of last-minute bookings. they're hoping that slowly, slowly, you know, bookings will pick up, the official opening will take place, and then greece will be open to all. >> all very welcome and encouraging news. melissa bell in paris, linda in athens. many thanks to you both. coming up on "cnn newsroom." alexi navalny's life is on the line. we'll have more in a moment.

the russian government is under pressure from worlded leaders to keep alexi nal van any alive. he's on day 20 of a hunger strike. his allies said he's very close to death. the u.s. promises there will be consequences if he dies in
1:21 am
prison. navalny's supporters in russia said there's no time to wait. they are planning massive nationwide rallies for wednesday. and sam kylie joins us more from moscow. good to see you, sam. the u.s. has warned russia of consequences should nal van any die. what is the latest on this? >> reporter: this morning came to dana bush on cnn who would not be drilled on what the consequences would be. consequences applied by the united states, obviously, but that warnings had been directly conveyed between the white house and the kremlin that should alexi that value nanny pass away as a result of his hunger strike and, indeed, the attacks on his health following the nerve gas attack or nerve agent attack back on him in august of last
1:22 am
year, there would be consequences for russia or certainly for the putin regime. there have been similar voices of concern of comfort in the united kingdom, france, and the eu more widely. there's a great deal of international concern generated by, rosemary, information coming from nal van any's camp. we only have navalny's camp word on this. they're citing independent analysis by professional medics, doctors who are saying, among other things, his potassium levels are high. he may suffer renal fail your or heart disease as a consequence of the hunger strike that is now in the 20th day. all though, of course, i have to keep reminding ourselves, this is a man whose health has been undermined by the know chalk poisoning in the summer. he's anticipating they'll get a
1:23 am
visit from his lawyers later today. they don't know if lawyers will be admitted to the prison he's being held, about two hours outside of moscow. in the past, they've been frequently allowed access but not allowed access for him to independent medical treatment. that's at the center of his hunger strike. more broadly, though, his supporters are bringing forward that plans for national demonstrations to wednesday and this is over concerns that he is now in such frail condition his health may not hold out long enough to reach what has been the peak or tipping point of half a million signatures in an online petition before they triggered demonstrations. the demonstrations have been brought to wednesday. consequently or maybe deliberately is also the day that vladimir putin's due to address his parliamentaries in
1:24 am
the sort of annual kind of face the nation session that he has. so a lot of coinciding issues coming ahead locally and internationally. >> sam, what more are you learning about the czech republic expelling 18 russian embassy staff and the likely consequences of that? >> reporter: russia announced the consequence in the bilateral sense, they have given 20 diplomats 24 hours to leave the country as of last night. it's a tit for tat expulsion. it comes with the added piece of information that in the view of the czech republic authorities, every one of the 18 were members of one or two russia
1:25 am
intelligence organizations, one of the organizations that has been blamed by the united states among others for mass cyber attacks around the world. on top of that the giu, a military an overseas military organization with a para military role among others, the british blamed for the attack on sergey in 2018. this comes adds the poles have expelled three russian diplomats. the united states expelled ten. the russians are seeing it as a result of american measure under the biden administration. there's a glimmer of hope being offered by the biden n administration of in an offer of bilateral meeting between the two leaders somewhere in europe, perhaps in the summer. >> sam kylie joining us live from moscow. thank you. it was once a lifeline for dozens of kids is now gone. why a church in texas is worried for these unaccompanied minor

1:29 am
police say the man who carried out a mass shooting at a fedex facility in indianapolis last week used two assault rifles in the attack, both of which were purchased legally. that is despite being investigated by the fbi months earlier due to his potential for violence. mass shootings in the u.s. are becoming all too common an occurrence. in the past month, 50 mass shootings have taken place across the country, and that number rises to 150 since the
1:30 am
beginning of 2021. cnn considers an incident to be a mass shooting if four or more people are shot, wounded, or killed excludeing the gunman. president biden has called america's mass shootings a national embarrassment. the debate over how to stop it is one steeped in deep political division. one gun control advocate told cnn tougher gun laws are a good place to start. >> if you look at gun crime across the united states, states with stronger gun laws have less gun crime. states with weaker gun laws have more gun crime. two-thirds of crime guns actually come from states with weaker gun laws. so gun laws don't matter, why are folks -- weaker gun laws to buy the guns and bring them back and commit crimes? >> joining me now is cnn's
1:31 am
senior political analyst ron brownstein. good to have you with us. >> good to be here. >> ron, this is a nation on edge right now. at least 50 mass shootings in the last month as the country also deals with civil unrest, police violence, the derek chauvin trial may have a verdict soon, even before that, shots were fired on the minnesota national guard and police in minneapolis as the trial wraps up and in the wake of the deadly police shooting of daunte wright and the police killing of a 13-year-old. what does the biden administration need to be doing about this and how potentially explosive could it prove to be? >> well, look, rosemary, i have written 2020 will be the most difficult decade for america since before 1850. we see the lines in our society, the fissures in our society
1:32 am
deepening month by month, year by year. i think the strategy seems clear. he's trying to lower the temperature on the culture of wars which are the main drivers of this division and try to get the country to coalesce around a common goals of controlling the virus and restarting the economy and trying to shift the political debate to a less confrontation areas like vaccine distribution and infrastructure. the forces the degree to which red and blue america are living in different worlds to the point where we can't respond to a gun violence epidemic. i mean, all of that is real. it's not clear any single leader has the ability to stop that or reverse the direction. >> right. so frustrating because most of
1:33 am
the people want to see some sort of gun control and police reform. i want to head overseas now. former national security advisor lieutenant general hr mcmaster calls joe biden's plan to withdrawal u.s. troops from afghanistan an utter disaster. other defense officials suggests it's likely this will dismantle the cia network. others disagree, of course. they said it's time to get out just as joe biden says. what is your reaction to those criticisms? >> well, you know, in it is highly possible, if not probable, there will be bad outcomes of the u.s. leaving. the question is whether the outcomes would be any better if we leave in a year or two years or five years. i mean, i think ultimately what biden was saying is that we cannot solve this problem unless we are willing to, you know, essentially stay there forever. that is the gamble that he is making. >> very quickly, to russia now, the biden administration says
1:34 am
there will be consequences if kre kremlin critic navalny dies in prison as a result of the hunger strike. what might the consequences be? where could the issue take relations with russia? >> i think this is, you know, the clearest turning the page. one of the clearest turning page. trump found a way to kind of tempize on russia and not excuse their behavior. biden is making very clear he wants to respond forcefully to it. i would assume there would be significant sanctions. as you know, the eu is talking about this, as well. biden's insink is try to be the leader of the western alliance. i'm guessing whatever he does, he's looking for the broadest possible coalition to do so. the question will be, i think, in not only the days but months and years ahead does a more forceful response illicit any change in direction under putin.
1:35 am
>> ron brownstein, thank you. former president george w. bush is urging congress to move beyond partisan when it comes to immigration. >> please put aside trying to score political points on either side. i hope i can help set a tone that is more respectful about the immigrant culture may lead to reform of the system. >> the plea comes amid a heated debaton capitol hill of immigration reform and the influx of migrants at the u.s./mexico border. p bush said he's lobbying the republican party to act on creating a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. a church in brownsville, texas was once a salvation for
1:36 am
many unaccompanied migrant children, but services are now on hold because of the pandemic leaving those same children stuck in shelters. cnn's rosa flores has more. >> reporter: this is more than a sunday service in south texas. it use to be a lifeline for dozens of migrant children living in shelters who crossed the border alone. before the pandemic, here they are attending a christmas mass. allowed to come to church every week. these two sisters said they'll never forget a boy whose eyes filled with tears when he said his mom wouldn't take him out of the government custody. >> the mom was in the u.s. and rejected her child? >> yes. >> it's very painful. it's a painful situation for them. >> reporter: pain the children have to deal with in confinement. the pandemic keeping them in south texas shelters with little
1:37 am
to no contact with the outside world. except for this religious live stream with catholic priests tony o'connor. >> because of covid, we can't go into the centers than can't come here. >> reporter: nearly 20,000 unaccompanied migrant children live in shelters under the care of u.s. health and human services for about 30 days. what do you tell them? >> be patient and have faith. >> reporter: do they tell you it feels like a prison? >> yes, they do. >> reporter: they're treated well overall, says o'connor, he's sure they miss the little things. >> always manage to find a lot of food. they like food and coca-cola. >> reporter: coca-cola? >> coca-cola. they like coke coe a. >> reporter: since the pandemic, the pews where the migrant children used to sit are empty. their presence is peppered throughout the church.
1:38 am
their prayers in sealed envelopes are here at the foot of religious statutes. >> probably saying help me get 0 out of here. increase my process so i can go north. >> reporter: the bright paper flowers and figurines still decorate the church. including this swan made by a boy in custody for over a year. >> you'll get out. >> reporter: he knows the advice is tough for young children. especially since they can't leave the shelter. >> i pray for them. >> reporter: leaving them without freedom through faith. ♪ ♪ >> reporter: rosa flores, cnn brownsville, texas. >> that is a tough story there. and still to come, a break from covid fatigue. a chance for families to reunite. australia and new zealand get

welcome back. india has recorded more than 1 million new covid-19 cases in five days. on monday the country reported more than 270,000 cases, a record high. the capital new delhi is hard hit and under lockdown for a week. meanwhile, prime minister mo i did is under fire for holding election rallies but ironically he's appealing to people gathering for a major hindu festival to keep it symbolic. in thailand and japan, a new wave of infections is threatening to slow recovery. top health experts in japan said the country is in the middle of a fourth wave while thailand is implementing new restrictions after a sharp rise in cases.
1:43 am
cnn's paula hancocks joins me live from bangkok. good to see you. the vaccine rollout has been slow across asia despite the new waves of infections. what is the latest on this? >> reporter: well, rosemary, really many of those countries in the asia-pacific region that were praised in 2020 for their ability to contain the pandemic, they are now struggling with a slow rollout of vaccinations. the likes of thailand also new zealand, taiwan, the vaccination rates in those countries is particularly low. we've heard from the lowrie institute they believe the asia-pacific region on average was the best prepared and dealt with the pandemic the best. there was sort of a difference in the way they dealt with the vaccinations. when you look at the likes of thailand, for example, the death rate here is remarkably low when you compare to others.
1:44 am
it's still below 100 people since the pandemic began. compare it to the united states where it's well over half a million people. so clearly the level of urgency when it came to having to roll out the vaccination is very different. now, of course, thailand, for example, is in the grip of another outbreak. its worst outbreak since the pandemic began. it's finding itself low down the list of priority countries when it comes to getting vaccinations in a world which is short on the vaccinations. south korea, as well, is still less than 4% vaccinated or at least with the first dose in the country. we heard from officials at the beginning say they were happy to take a wait and see approach to see what possible side effects there could be. of course, with japan, less than 100 days to go until the olympics, they certainly would have expected to be far further along in their vaccination program. so really appears, in many ways,
1:45 am
the tables have turned. those countries doing remarkably well in containing the pandemic are not doing so well when it comes to vaccinations. rosemary? >> yeah. it seems to be what we're seeing. paula hancocks, many thanks. elsewhere signs of hope and progress in the battle against the virus just a week before an sack day, new zealand is allowing australians to travel to the country quarantine free. we have the story from melbourne. >> reporter: a travel bubble opening between australia and new zealand on monday with the first of 140 flights planned this week across the tasmania sea with no passengers having to quarantine on arrival. that offer was previously available to new zealanders traveling to australia. new zealand returns the favor. it will mean billions for the economy with australian tourist
