9:01 am
concerns about surging coronavirus cases in parts of the u.s. 27 states are now seeing a rise in covid-19 cases over the previous week and many are in areas that have low vaccination rates. the delta variant of the virus has now become the dominant strain in the u.s., leading to this rapid rise in cases and now this strain is in all 50 states. cnn's polo sandoval in little rock, arkansas. one of the states seeing a surge. you're at a mobile vaccination site. the vaccinations in that state remain low. so what does it look like today? >> reporter: it's a pop-up vaccination site here, fred. and it is not as busy as authorities wish it was. in fact, i'll step out of the shot for a quick second so you can at least see that it's your usual set-up here. this pop-up vaccination location where authorities are hoping that more people around the community will actually stop by. university of arkansas for medical science is actually joining forces with a local
9:02 am
church here in little rock, they know that some of the most trusted, most established institutions and communities are churches. so in order to try to gain confidence of so many people still unvaccinated, they are out there right now trying to get that number of the vaccination rate here in arkansas just 40%. the nation's top infectious disease expert is saying listen to the cdc and not pfizer when it comes to needing a vaccine booster. friday, this is what anthony anthony fauci told about a phone call he received from the head of pfizer. >> the ceo was a really good guy. got on the phone with me last night and apologized that they came out with that recomm recommendation. not the apologize about the recommendation but not letting us know that he was going to do it ahead of time. >> reporter: this after pfizer announced on thursday it was applying for emergency fda authorization for a booster shot to protect against covid-19.
9:03 am
a booster for americans to get early as six months after their second dose. pfizer set off alarms when they released a statement saying that the immunity from its vaccine was waning, citing israeli health ministry data. they said, quote, vaccine efficacy in preventing both infection and symptomatic post-vaccination. slated higher for the fda that said fully vaccinated americans do not need an additional dose of vaccine at this time. another expert had this to say to cnn. >> in the uk and scotland and in canada, there are now three studies showing over 80% protection. so pretty close to what we've seen. and that's the reason why we don't need to be concerned right now about getting the booster. >> reporter: this confusion coming as the u.s. is moving in the wrong direction when it comes to the number of covid cases. according to the cdc, the highly contagious delta variant makes up more than half of all new infections in the u.s. much of that rise in the
9:04 am
southeastern united states in the small portion of the midwest. health experts say the best protection available from getting seriously sick from the delta variant is still the full dosage of a covid vaccine. and yet, about half of the country is still not fully vaccinated. also on friday, the cdc unpdate covid guidance for schools saying they should remain open in the fall encouraging them to keep measures meant to mitigate the spread of the virus in place. >> what they're saying is it's really essential for hus to get our kids back to school in the fall. for us to do that, we have to employ these layered mitigation strategy. we have to look at it as layers. if you cannot maintain distancing in schools, which many schools can't if they want to bring everybody back, then you have to do indoor masking. you have to improve ventilation. you also have to have weekly testing if you're unvaccinated. >> reporter: with so many parts of the country already doing much better obviously and in
9:05 am
many cases, even out of the woods here, just a quick reality check on what's happening here in arkansas. one official with the university of arkansas for medical science said earlier on cnn, fred, that based on what they're seeing in their emergency room right now with the number of covid patients, what's happening in arkansas seems to be sort of the upswing right now of what is likely their third wave in the summer of 2021. the big concern or at least big effort is to try to fight that kind of vaccine hesitancy by getting in the community. here, specifically targeting the latino community working with the mexican consulate office to get the word out and more people vaccinated. >> all right. polo sandoval, thank you so much. so as states get ready for the fall school semester, the cdc is announcing new guidance to help them prepare. the new guidance emphasizes a need for in-person learning. the cdc also wants school to offer vaccinations on site and to allow employees paid leave to
9:06 am
get vaccinated. the cdc said anyone unvaccinated should still wear masks and social distancing at schools remains encouraged. here to talk to me about this is the president of the national association. becky pringle. good to see you. >> good to be with you, fredricka. >> new cdc guidance centers around getting students back into the classroom. but just two days ago, the state of california passed a bill requiring public schools offer a remote learning option next year. i m i imagine that you agree with the cdc on the importance of in-person learning but seems as though there's a lot of contingencies here. can they be met? >> fredricka, i think you probably know i taught science for over 30 years and can i first say it is so refreshing, encouraging and hopeful that we have a president who actually
9:07 am
believes in science and i have been saying all yearlong, follow the science, listen to the health care professionals, the infectious disease experts so that that can guide our thinking. we don't know and with the new variant, we just reported on how that is spreading across the country. so important we're listening to the cdc guidelines and we are very, very hopeful. you know, i was in a school a couple of weeks ago, an elementary school and i talked to the educators there and one of the things they said to me was they are so excited to be looking forward to being back with all of their children, being back in the fall. they plan to do that right now and with the american rescue plan money. improving ventilation and making sure they have ppe and can socially distance where they can
9:08 am
but making sure that they are also involved. the educators involved in the community to try to make sure that all adults who can be vaccinated are vaccinated. that is still the single best prevention strategy for our kids, even ones who can't be vaccinated if our community rates are low. >> i do hear your underlying message there in all of that, especially as a science teacher and even dr. fauci said too that science is about being adaptive. so there have to be, lot of things learned about this virus, about our behaviors, about these variants all along the way. so we all have to be adaptive, even though you've got these cdc guidelines that are encouraging people to make some more adjustments. this was dr. fauci just this week. >> i think that the message from the cdc is clear and i totally agree with them. we want all the children back in
9:09 am
in-person classes in the fall term, for sure. and we want to do everything we can to make sure that happens. now, obviously, depending upon the age of the children, some will be vaccinated, some not. those who are not vaccinated should be wearing masks. >> okay, so that's where it's going to get confusing and difficult. is it not? for the fall semester. there are lots of states who have done away with mask mandates and so they've also conveyed that in school, it's not required. but then when you have children too young to be vaccinated and we're hearing from the cdc and dr. fauci now about the dangers of this delta variant, do you believe parents/families are going to invite the idea of sending their kids to school with masks again? >> fredricka, i could not agree more with dr. fauci that in-person learning is exactly
9:10 am
what all of our students need. all of our educators, including me, have been saying that all year. that we want to be back in person with our students. we did the best we could in a virtual environment but we know we need to be with them and we want to be with them. however, we have to make sure that we are keeping them safe. we have to make sure we are keeping their families safe. we have to make sure we keep the educators safe. and something that's not talked a lot about, fredricka, we have tools open all yearlong and argued in september to stay open. the difference between those who stayed open and those who didn't was that the community came together. parents and families, all the educators and health care professionals, they came together. oftentimes for an informing committee with new cdc guidelines, continuing to learn and it came together and they talked about it and made sure that they had the mitigation strategies in place. so we'll continue to educate the
9:11 am
public about why it's so important to continue to wear masks where people are not vaccinated and we know some of our kids are not, but also to come together and do what's best for our students. so not only can they go back to school, fredricka, they can stay in school. >> becky pringle, such a pleasure having you. thank you so much. >> good to be with you. all right, coming up, texas republicans are trying to push through more restrictive voting measures. will they be successful this time? plus. no fans in the stands, but the olympic games will go on despite a state of emergency in tokyo. i'll sit down live with olympic gold medallist gail beavers. s s. because the tempur-breeze° transfers heat away from your body... you feel cool, night after night. during the tempur-pedic summer of sleep, save $500 on all tempur-breeze mattresses. - in business, customer support is mission critical.

9:16 am
this weekend. texas lawmakers holding a hearing on the contentious voting bill that would impose many new restrictions including a ban on drive-through voting forum to pass and more restrictive voting bill. republicans dropped controversial parts of the previous bill, for example, no voting on sundays. strongly opposed to the new measure and vow to fight it. either by staging another walkout or attempting to eliminate the worst of the provisions. and then in pennsylvania, there's a new push to kick start a new controversial election audit in the state. senator doug mastriano wants pennsylvania to launch a forensic investigation into the election results and procedures
9:17 am
surrounding the 2020 general election and the 2021 primary. comes as republican leaders across the country push the unfounded conspiracy theory that trump won the election. in arizona, a similar so-called audit is still under way months after it began. an audit many election officials in the state have called a sham. joining me right now to talk about this and so much more, the lieutenant governor of pennsylvania, john fedorman running for the u.s. senate next year as a democrat. lieutenant governor, so good to see you. >> hi. thanks for having me. >> okay, so this usualpush for audit after two other legal audits. do you believe that there will be a third? >> no, there won't be a third. it's already been shut down and i want your viewers to understand. this is just one wing nut with
9:18 am
microsoft word and stationary. there's nothing more to it. it's not going to go anywhere. it has no legitimacy. never had any legitimacy. this is simply an attempt by him to endear himself to donald trump to get that rose, so to speak, in his run for governor and get his endorsement. this is not going anywhere. >> cnn has been able to confirm that mastriano requested election materials for three counties, philadelphia, york and tyoga? so the letters ask they hand over the materials voluntarily. they have until the end of the month to comply. should they hand over the information? >> no, and our department of state has already shut that down saying that's not going to happen. i could write a letter to the pittsburgh steelers on my letterhead demanding they
9:19 am
install me as starting left tackle from the 21 season. doesn't mean it's going to go anywhere. it's that same kind of absurdity in all of this. this is not going anywhere in pennsylvania. >> digging on his heels here saying that a full forensic investigation is critically necessary for our commonwealth, for the sake of transparency and accountability. there is nothing to fear if there is nothing to hide. what's your response to something like that? >> it would be no different if you were standing on a street corner yelling that the end is near or something. just one guy with some stationary isn't going to amount to anything and again, the department of state has already shut that down and no audit is going to be occurring in pennsylvania. remember, this is the same, you know, they're trying to get the band back together. this is the same band that back in 2021 went 1 for 58.
9:20 am
we are not the sharpest knives in the republican drawers that are involved in this right now. and there is no chance this is going to be successful. >> you're running for the u.s. senate next year. what are your concerns about these audits, these many attempts still trying to relitigate the 2020 election, you were to win the u.s. senate seat, do you feel like there needs to be a different or even a federal plan to circumvent what appear to be kind of repeated attempts to overturn 2020 election. >> i do. i believe we need to eliminate the filibuster and democrats need to vote like democrats and we need to enact the for the people john lewis act to make sure that we have universal federal protections because otherwise, we are going to continually be pushed around by these states and they'll dictate
9:21 am
the terms by which democrats can vote. you just described what's going on in texas and other states. democrats need to vote like democrats and we need to step up for voting rights for all democrats in this country. clearly, that's their strategy for both '22, but the big prize would be 2024. >> president biden is set to visit your state and give a major speech. republican-led efforts in 17 states enacted 28 state laws since the 2020 election restricting ballot access. what can the president say? >> the president can say what i think he's always said that this is just a continuation and a relitigation of the lie of 2020. we saw it. we were in the front lines of pennsylvania's electoral integrity but the truth is if
9:22 am
the republicans plan on running on that in '22, they aren't going to win. any republican i talk to honestly doesn't believe there's any fraud and they understand that, as a party, they don't want to be talking about this and relitigating it but they're being dragged into this because those that are running for governor are trying to get that critical trump endorsement and the only way you can do that is to endear yourself by repeating the lie that donald trump won when everyone heard that obviously isn't the case. >> lieutenant governor john fetterman, thank you so much for being with us this weekend. >> thanks for having me. still ahead, an olympics like no other. a state of emergency and no fans in the audience. i'll sit down live with olympic gold medallist gail devers to discuss all of that and more. ev.

olympic torchlighting ceremony. >> no packed stadiums or big fanfare, olympic organizers decided to stage events without spectators after japan announced a state of emergency amid surging coronavirus cases. athletes will have to compete without crowds at the tokyo venues. cnn's will ripley joins us now from tokyo.
9:28 am
this is happening two weeks before the games begin. what's the mood like there? what are the japanese saying? >> reporter: you certainly get the sense we're about to witness history, fred, because this is the first time in olympic history that a host city has not had spectators in its venues. first olympics ever been postponed. there have been olympics cancelled during wartime but never post-postponed and never without spectators. so there is that unique aspect to all of this but frankly, the mood on the ground here in japan is pretty somber. a lot of japanese, for months now, according to public opinion polls, thousands of athletes in the delegations from hundreds of countries just isn't safe. given that the pandemic is still raging across much of the world and this new highly contagious delta variant has really thrown a wrench into the plans of olympics organizers who hope japan's numbers would go down to
9:29 am
have 50% capacity or up to 10,000 people in venues but over the last three weeks, fred, the numbers have been going up. the highest levels that japan has seen in a matter of months, since may. and it's just not safe, organizers say, to have people in the stadiums, aside from vips. these are the olympic committee members and sponsors, journalists, and others who have a role to play, according to organizers in the competition itself. who draw from the energy of the crowd, and hope to have friends and family there, it's incredibly disappointing and for those here in japan who not only did their tax dollars pay for this multibillion dollar brand-new venues to sit empty but entered lotteries to get the handful of seats and ticketing available, some selling for more than $1,000 dollars. people in japan can't go to restaurants or bars to watch events because this fourth state of emergency since the pandemic
9:30 am
began also means that restaurants have to stop serving alcohol completely and people cannot gather in groups because japan says that this delta variant could be a very big danger for a population that's only around 15% vaccinated right now, fred. >> i get it. circumstances have changed and couldn't to change with two weeks away before opening ceremony. will ripley, thank you so much in tokyo. so all of this in a week of highs and lows surrounding the games. one of the world's fastest women is stopped from going to tokyo. usa track and field says 21-year-old sha-karri richardson disqualified in the meter will not compete in the games at all. richardson admitted to smoking marijuana coping with the death of her biological mom. and in the first television interview after being disqualified, she said i know what i'm not allowed to do and i still made that decision.
9:31 am
and then she later tweeted, the attention that is on track now and was because of very few names. so if that's where fan's support lay, you can't be mad at that. and then naomi osaka who will compete in the olympics for home country of japan. pours her heart out about her mental health struggles. joining me right now, someone who knows all about competing on the world stage, pressures that come with it, coping and persever persevering, three time olympic gold medallist and 100 meters and 4 by 100 meter relay in 1992 barcelona and 1996 atlanta games, gail devers. so good to see you. >> nice to be here. >> you are our first live guest here on this set in more than 17 months, so so glad you could be here. so glad you're well during this whole pandemic. we've got a lot to talk about. maybe the first one is the
9:32 am
easiest which is what is it like to be an olympian when the stands are full, you get that energy. i think about the high jumpers and the long jumpers clapping, waving. what's it like for these olympians who will have silence coming from the stands? >> well, kind of, they're used to that now based off of training and as an athlete, you're taught tunnel vision. and i know even in the 100 meters, they tell you to be quiet. so you can focus on your start. i think they'll have to focus on that, what we bring with us in our hearts, our fans. sometimes your fans can't go all the way to wherever they are. i think that's what they're going to carry. you'll see great times because of all this. everybody is excited to be able to compete. >> and with the postponement that meant, i mean, more anguish, more training, and more potential pitfalls and injuries for some of these athletes. are they more than anxious, likely, to compete, butterflies?
9:33 am
how is that competing in their bodies? >> you set goals for yourself. it was a different time. we didn't know if you would get the green light to compete or not compete. everybody stayed ready so when they said yes you can, you accomplish it. they were able to breathe a little bit because they made the team and now they're going to go out there and perform. i've seen some of them competing. everybody is gearing up. a fantastic olympic games and see some great times, olympic records, i think, are going to fall and world records. >> wow. remarkable that even one australian tennis star will not compete in the games because of the decision to ban spectators. we haven't seen that from a number of athletes who are like, the games go on and we'll be there, we qualify, and we're on the team and we're going. huge track star, sha-carri richardson is praised for being very gracious throughout painful mistake. what's the big lesson or moment out of this for other young
9:34 am
athletes and really, for the world, for that matter? >> i think the lesson to be learned, i'm glad she came out and accepted responsibility. the lesson is consequences for your actions. i tell my own kids that. think about the consequences of your actions before you act. the thing you thought about doing, you wouldn't do and i think that's what we'll learn from this and come back and she'll do fine. >> tau >> is it time now then, for the sports world, world open or ioc, is it time to start reconsidering where marijuana is on the banned substances? particularly because it is legal in some countries and some states as well as the medicinal properties that are argued on behalf of marijuana? do you think now, is there another lesson learned? >> i think it's always time to visit or revisit things, but until that's done or if there are people who are against it saying that this should be off the ban list and you need to get on a committee to change it, until it's changed, as an
9:35 am
athlete, that's something you signed up to do. you didn't have to be a track athlete. so you have to follow the rules. >> naomi osaka. she took a lot of heat from the tennis world after she skipped press conferences at roland-garros because she wanted to exercise self-care and suggested in "time" magazine perhaps we should give athletes the right to take a mental break from media scrutiny on a rare occasion without being subject to strict sanctions. talk to me about the balance that many athletes have to strike taking care of your mental fitness and your physical fitness. she's going to be competing in the olympics for japan. >> it's a lot. i mean, you think about it and she's a young athlete too. when you talk about not even as an athlete, inviting through this pandemic and the things, there was uncertainty of what was going to happen with your kids, if you were going to have a job when you came back, so mental health and mental, that's something that's real and we as a community need to get behind
9:36 am
everyone to make sure that people have those coping mechanisms that they need. as an athlete, you've got people pulling from you from all directions. you've got to keep your physical side together, your personal side, and then mentally. how do you keep that balance? so yes, we do need to make sure that people have the time to make sure they're okay because as an athlete, you're paid to perform. you can't perform if you're not taking care of yourself. >> people say i buy certain products because of endorsements, they're a public figure. i feel, i've heard this from people who say like they owe us their fan base some time whether it be press conferences, et cetera. what do you say to them because sometimes it makes it sound as though athletes are property, but from the athlete's standpoint who needs that time just as you said, what do you say to the expectations from some people like that? >> i mean, i think as athletes,
9:37 am
you want to perform and you know the last performance and give to your fans but there are times you need the break and if you need it, i think, you're not doing it every day all day. it's like, it's too much for me and i'm going to an expert to get that break to make sure that i'm okay so when i come back, i give my fans exactly what they need, and i think that's the balance we have to figure out. >> and you've been very open and public about you dealing with graves disease but at the time of your competing days, very few people knew about what you were grappling with physically and mentally, so you really do speak from experience. >> i'm doing great but i covered because of that. i couldn't stand the way i looked. there is a time when you're in the dark spot but as athletes, what we have to do is find the inner strength we all have, not just as athletes but as people to conquer and i just want to say, we've got a couple of days until the olympic games. i am go team usa because we are sending a great teem am over th.

released new body cam video of one of the most horrifying assaults during the january 6 and disturbing. the graphic videos with crushing flag poles and fists after going into the crowd to try to help a pro trump rioter who was being trampled. the video was released after cnn and other media outlets sued the doj for access. cnn's marshall cohen joining us with more on this. the justice department has also issued a warning about more potential violence in the coming weeks. what can you tell us about that? >> fred, good afternoon. this was really surprising and important words from the doj. a court filing earlier this week just yesterday in one of the capital riot cases. prosecutors are saying that they are worried in the coming weeks, there could be more violence from these die-hard trump supporters who were involved in the riot because of what trump
9:45 am
himself is saying about the 2020 election and about his insane theory that he might be reinstated next month. let me read you a quote from these court filings. prosecutors said, quote, former president trump continues to make false claims about the election, insinuate that he may be reinstated in the near future as president without another election and minimize the violent attack on the capital. so prosecutors say because of all of that, because of what trump is saying and because of what trump's allies in right-wing media are doing to promote all the claims, that material, that environment could further incite and inflame his supporters. it incited them on january 6th. prosecutors saying it could incite them again going forward. so the crazy thing here, fred, is that trump really never pays a price for his words. he says whatever he wants. there's no consequences. but in this situation, his words
9:46 am
