in the u.s., the push to vaccinate everyone hits a wall of resistance, and with cases spiking, angelinos are told to start wearing their masks again. water might be receding in places but the danger is far from over in western europe as crews desperately search for survivors. and gunfire interrupts a major league baseball game in washington, d.c. players and fans zramble for people as three people are wounded outside the stadium. welcome to all of you watching us here in the united states, canada and around the world people i'll kim brunhuber. . is "cnn newsroom." it's the middle of summer in america and the u.s. is facing a grim reality, covid cases are back on the rise, from coast to
coast, they're up in every single state for the second day in a row. health experts urging people once again to get vaccinated, because the overwhelming majority of people ending up in the hospital or dying because of the virus are unvaccinated. a little more than 48% of the population here is fully vaccinated when you look at cdc data, that means there's a long way to go before hitting herd immunity which starts potentially at around 70%. now in the los angeles county, the more infectious delta variant is making matters worse. masks are mandatory indoors for vaccinated and unvaccinated people. covid-19 cases have gone up by 300% there compared to july 4th and as you can imagine, not everyone is on board with this new mandate. paul vercammen is in los angeles for us. >> reporter: the covid-19 numbers in los angeles county started heading back up in the wrong direction, 462
hospitalizations, 11 new deaths and that positivity rate leaping now to 3.7%. it was just 1.5% on the fourth of july. so there's a lot of debate about this new rule that mandates wearing masks indoors at restaurants, movie theaters and the like, and a lot of drama unfolding here, this is patty's restaurant in taluca lakes, the headshots in the shadow of movie and television studios. here there's a lot of unscripted, healthy debate about this. most people say they are willing to wear the masks again indoors but you'll see great guides at one table, a husband vaccinated, a wife who is not. >> i think it's good. i think it protects people. i think anything to protect people and i don't mind the inconvenience of doing it. most of the time i'm outdoors anyway so when i go into a market or something, i put the mask on. i got it in my back pocket and we go from there. >> i don't like anything that's
mandated. i haven't seen the evidence to show that it protects you, the virus is so small. show me the science. not just what people, you know, what the media says. i think if you have cold symptoms, any kind of symptoms, you should be honest and wear a mask to protect others. >> reporter: also jumping onto the stage, the l.a. county sheriff alength villanueva cade "forcing the vaccinated and shows who already contracted covid-19 to wear masks is not backed by science." he said "the underfunded/defunded sheriff's department will not expand our limited resources and instead ask for voluntary compliance." it remains to be seen how all this is going to play out here in tinseltown and points beyond. i'm paul vercammen. back to you. there's a vaccination slowdown here in the u.s., and
president biden is blaming social media, facebook in particular. he's aus couping them of "killing people" for not blocking false information about vaccines. listen to this. >> they're killing people. the only pandemic we have is wrong the unvaccinated. and they're killing people. >> as you can imagine, facebook has responded, it claims that 85% of facebook users in the u.s. have been or want to be vaccinated against covid-19 and also says "president biden's goal was for 70% of americans to be vaccinated by july 4th. facebook is not the reason this goal was missed. canada is making up for lost time with its vaccination campaign. the company has more than 48% of his population fully vaccinated according to johns hopkins university. paula newton has more on how things are improving. >> for canada, this is quite a milestone, given the slow start
it got off to. both canadians and americans at over 48% fully vaccinated, but if you go back to a split screen, even in may, canada had very few people fully vaccinated. it was trying to get as many doses as possible, first doses into as many people as possible and the reason there has been a lot less vaccine hesitancy here was what was unfortunately in the spring and late winter, a punishing third wave of the virus, hospitalizations were through the roof. they had to transfer patients from hospital to hospital just to make sure they could get care and cities like toronto, in fact, have only now emerged from lockdown. canada is still being quite cautious. they say they will open borders to fully vaccinated international individualsors, possibly throughout august and september, but they're saying that because of the delta variant, they will continue to be quite cautious. paula newton, cnn, ottawa. on monday, england is
kicking off a risky experiment by lifting social distancing restrictions. not everyone's happy and london's mayor says it's still mandatory to wear face coverings on public transport because life isn't back to normal yet. the delta variant is fueling a surge in new infections. on saturday the uk reported more than 54,000 cases, the highest number in six months. phil black joins me from excess, ek gland. a story everyone's talking about, one specific case of covid, the uk health secretary to tested positive for coronavirus. what is the latest on that and what repercussions might that have for boris johnson? >> reporter: the man only one step below boris johnson in having overall responsibility for england's response to the pandemic tested positive and isolating at home. what that means in theory also is that anyone who has had close contact with him would usually
be told to isolate at home as well regardless of who they are. we have learned the prime minister boris johnson, the chancellor have both been contacted by the contact tracing system here because of the recent time they have spent with javid but not isolating despite the rules that usually apply to everyone in these circumstances. instead they're taking part in a pilot program which replaces isolation with daily covid-19 tests. it is an already existing test program not available to the broader british public, and it is something that it does happen to exist in this test form so the prime minister and the chancellor of the ex-checker will be taking advantage of that and will in theory be free come the so-called freedom day tomorrow. they will not have to isolate at home. it is all very much a keen illustration of precisely the circumstances the uk is in, with
the surging wave of the delta r variant and the variant can reach anyone. kim? >> absolutely. amidst that surge, there is some good news on the vaccine front to share. >> reporter: so the government has reached a milestone, a self-imposed goal by the end of july it wanted to say it has offered at least one dose of the vaccine to every member of the adult population. it has reached that goal. that does not, however, mean that a needle has gone into the arm of every adult here. the key statistic is that around 68% of the adult population is now fully vaccinated. the remaining 32% have either had one or none. in addition to that, you have to consider that everyone under the age of 18 has zero vaccine protection because the rollout here does not include 12 to 17-year-olds, as it does in some other countries. the overall vaccine coverage picture is this, as england prepares to unlock and throw
away the rules, at least a third of the overall population has limited to no vaccine protection and that is why even the most conservative or even optimistic modeling suggests that in the months ahead, we will be seeing millions of infections here, and thousand its, perhaps many thousands of people falling seriously ill. >> all right, thanks so much, phil black in essex, england. appreciate it. france is also on edge, because of the delta variant. people travel there from countries where it's spreading fast and who aren't vaccinated now have to show a negative covid test, and it has to be taken within 24 hours instead of the usual 72. the country's affected included the uk, spain, portugal, and greece. the desperate search for survivors is under way in western europe, following devastating floods that have ravaged the region, at least 160 people are confirmed dead with hundreds of others still
unaccounted for. rising waters, landslides and power outages are making rescue efforts even more difficult. the netherlands red cross is supporting residents in venlo. 10,000 people were ordered to evacuate their homes friday due to a surging river. cleanup has begun in areas where watersreceded. homes lost, roads, bridges, even cemeteries swept away. one official calls this flood a catastrophe of historic pro, portion. later today german chancellor angela mercklogical see the damage firsthand when she visits the scenic town of altanar, germany, muddied with mud and wreckage. residents are clearing the rubble as they come to terms with what's lost. atik
atika shubert has more. >> reporter: all day helicopters circled the once picturesque town, now choked with debris, cut off from neighboring towns without communication. this is home for deborah stretch but her family in the uk had no idea she survived until they saw her on tv, now she's delivering fresh cups of coffee to keep spirits up. >> i came over the mountain, down here, and then i just saw oh my god -- unbelievable. we were just all crying, everybody. it was awful. it was really, really terrible, and everybody's walking towards me, this is our little town. it's gone. it's just gone. >> reporter: residents try to clear what they can, working with firefighters, police and soldiers. but the closer we get to the river, the greater the devastation. on a hotel wall, the historic
marker of the water level of the last great flood in 1910, that is now dwarfed by this catastrophe. i'm standing at the banks of the river. this hotel right beside it had water all the way up to the third story. you can actually see the water line right there, marking just how far up the floodwaters got. this was no ordinary flood. the water took out chunks of the road, sweeping through the local cemetery. at least one house was carried away by the flood. neighbors told us the body of the person who lived there was later found in a hillside vineyard. restoring critical infrastructure is a top priority to get the help the town needs. "we're trying to make this road pas passable again. over here there is a railway
bridge completely unusable and this side damage, but we're taking the material to stabilize that bridge and facilitate movement of heavy equipment" this sergeant explains. not until we come around the bend we see the sheer scale of their task. this here is a railway crossing and that explains what we see over here. the river swelled so high, so quickly, that it was able to tip over the bridge holding up the railway line. you can see all of the trees, the debris that it had collected further up river. it just became this wall of water, knocking down everything in its path. this is a scene of destruction that is just incredible. this town has never seen anything like this. for generations, this town has lived off the river and all that it brings, but now, as extreme weather hits this once tranquil valley, the waters have turned
against them. atika shubert for cnn in altanar, germany. in hard-hit belgium, residents are combing through what's left of their homes and businesses. the death toll there is now at least 27 people. belgium will observe a national day of mourning for the flood victims on tuesday. chris byrnes is live in belgium. let's start with the rescue and recovery. what are you seeing where you are? >> reporter: well, kim, in fact i can raise that death toll to 30 from an official here in this province. more than 100 are still missing and over my shoulder, there are people working there in the cleanup. it's not only a cleanup but it's also in some places a grim search for bodies as well, which
they are doing all over the place. here we can see all over the center of town here there's a big cleanup effort. lots of earth movers and trucks and people with shovels and buckets. the people who are working there just near us had actually come from brussels to help out in the effort. we saw a lot of that in pepinster yesterday as well. one point the government is making is that a lot of people who have come on their own are tying things up and blocking things, blocking rescue efforts. they're asking if you want to help to contact the red cross to make sure this is done in a systematic way. >> all right, in terms of the cleanup that we're seeing there, and reconstruction, i know you've witnessed this firsthand. you've seen what's going on there locally. tell us what you saw and give us the big picture about what the government is doing to help those people rebuild.
>> reporter: it's absolutely mind boggling when you walk around here, it looks somewhat like a war zone. it is piles and piles of stuff, of shop goods, as well as furniture, people's belongings, people's clothes. it's just piles and piles, and that's what they're busy sorting through right now. the government has offered some help, a few million euros in walonia proveiness to clean things up, to hire cleanup crews to start restoring services, that's also a big issue. the electricity is still out in most parts here. it has been restored to some cities in the region but others not and water is a big issue. they have water here and other places they don't and if you do have water, the government says online to check online and make sure that your water is safe and if it is not because a lot of it is polluted from the flooding,
don't even boil it. buy a bottle of water. it's complicated here. we saw a lot of twisted train tracks as well. the train station here in velveer is still closed. it could take weeks for bus service, but that's about it. it's going to be tough for quite some time. >> we can see that. thanks for that, chris burr ris in belgium. here in the u.s. a shoot-out during a major league baseball game in washington sent players and fans scrambling. a reporter at the game describes the confusion and panic inside the stadium. two olympic athletes in tokyo's olympic village tested positive for covid-19. we'll have a live report next, stay with us. ♪ ♪ (sounds of car doors closing) (crash sound & tires squealing) (phone chimes) this is onstar.
saturday night's major league baseball game between the nationals and the padres abruptly ended mid game when gunfire erupted outside the nationals park stadium in washington. police say two vehicles were involved in a shoot-out on the nearby street, at least three people were wounded. even though everyone was told to stay inside the stadium, dozens of people scrambled into the
dugouts to escape. nervous fans were eventually given the all clear to safely leave. the game was suspended until sunday afternoon. chris cillizza was at the game and described the confusion. >> reporter: i was sitting off the third baseline and there's loud bangs behind us, a bunch of sort of right in a row but they were supposed to do fireworks after the game tonight, so i think most people didn't think anything of it. sudden ly a lot of people in let field started trying to get out of the center field gates and for the next eight to ten minutes i think people, no one knew what was happening. you saw people hiding, we were crouched behind our seats down the third baseline, and not a lot of information. the players were taken out of the dugouts, some came out to get their families and grab them
and bring them under the stadium so there wasn't any information. eventually they came over the p.a. and said they believed the shooting was outside the stadium. five days to go to the opening games in tokyo, two athletes tested positive for covid-19. olympic organizers haven't revealed the names or national is of its positive cases as coronavirus cases are surging in tokyo raging fears the games could turn into a super spreader event. selena wang joins us from tokyo. more positive cases with athletes so what do we know? >> well, as we are seeing, thousands of olympic participants flood into japan for the games, we are seeing a growing number of covid cases linked to the tokyo olympics, now that number up to 55 with athletes, officials and
contractors testing positive for covid, two athletes in the olympic village, one athlete just today, testing positive who lives outside the olympic village. i visited the olympic village and it's not the usual place for partying and celebration. it is very much socially distanced, anti social, these athletes are asked to dine alone, but medical experts have raised concern these athletes are sharing rooms. i visited a suite with eight athletes sharing one room about 110 square meters so not an ideal condition during the pandemic and for athletes, it's going to be an incredibly challenging experience for them. there is no cheering, no high fiving, no spectators in the stands. they have to wear their masks on as much as possible and even at the medal ceremonies, they're not having the medal put on over their head. it will be handed to them on a tray, so very bizarre scenario for them. but ioc officials are confident
they can keep them contained with the olympic individuals separate from the japanese public. look at what one official had to say here >> there is no such thing as zero risk and that we all agree. at the same time, the mingling and crossing of population is incredibly limited and we can ensure that transmission between the various groups is almost impossible. i'm qualifying almost. >> kim, we're seeing from reports from some olympic teams including from the chinese sailing team that they are able to in fact mix with the local population and medical experts for months have been saying that it's impossible to keep a completely safe bubble and kim, this is happening as tokyo is under a state of emergency with covid-19 cases surging to the highest level since january, and just about 20% of the population fully vaccinated here. >> thanks so much, is hselena w
in tokyo. clearly the coronavirus pandemic disrupted nearly every aspect of our lives. children are bearing the brunt of that. the u.n. says nearly 23 million children around the world missed their routine vaccinations last year and that's making them vulnerable to other illnesses. breathing heavily and hooked up to tubes, these children aren't victims of covid-19 but another disease that could be fatal and is almost entirely preventable, measles. although the risk of covid to children is relatively low, the u.n. cautions that their risk of contracting other diseases because of pandemic related disruptions to immunization campaigns. globally, more than 22 million children missed their first dose of the measles vaccine last year, 3 million more. up to 17 million children didn't receive a single dose of any childhood vaccine in 2020 and 23 million missed out on routine
vaccinations due to pandemic related lockdown, the highest number in more than a decade. pandemic restrictions largely cut off access to health services and immunization outreach. funding shortfalls, vaccine misinformation, and instability in some parts of the world added to the troubling picture of low vaccination rates. as countries begin to ease their covid-19 restrictions, the gap in global vaccination coverage has set the stage for what one world health organization official said could be the perfect storm. >> as we go from 2020 where we did see actually a period of social engagements that were interventions in themselves for reducing transmission of these vaccine preventable diseases, in 2021, we have potentially a perfect storm about to happen and we don't want to get to that perfect storm to be ringing the alarm bell. >> reporter: the backsliding of
childhood vaccinations across the globe has stoked an increase in easily preventable but devastating diseases including polio and measles. a world health organization report finds many children who didn't receive a single dose of the dtp vaccine, one of the first shots a child gets are two ten countries led by nigeria and india. >> most of the children that miss their first dose of vaccine live in communities affected by conflict and crisis, live in communities that are underserved, remote in places and live in informal slum settings particularly in urban, poor areas. >> reporter: even prior to the covid-19 pandemic, global childhood vaccination progress had stalled at around 85% for several years, but unicef's executive director says the pandemic has made a bad situation worse. an owe about ama era policy protecting young immigrants is unthread in the u.s. federal

decision declaring the daca program illegal, deferred action for childhood arrivals. the program allows undocumented immigrants who are brought to the u.s. as children to stay without fear of deportation. joe johns has more. >> reporter: the judge in texas essentially invalidated daca, said it was against the law because congress never signed off on it with legislation, also because it never went through the federal rule-making process. but he postponed any enforcement in the case until it went up through the appeals process. now the president of the united states, for his part, put out a statement on saturday, saying he was deeply disappointed with the ruling, also indicating the administration would appeal the case and would put daca through a rule-making process, but he indicated in his view, congress does need to act. former president barack obama also weighed in essentially saying the same thing on
twitter. it was during his administration that daca was first introduced. it was just about one year and one month ago that the united states supreme court threw out the trump era challenges to daca. now, hundreds of thousands of people inside the united states are once again in limbo about their status. joe johns, cnn, at the white house. karen tomlin is the founder and director of justice action center and joins me from portland, oregon. thanks for being here with us. you represent some daca recipients and active in many court cases on the issue, including one that went to the supreme court. i just want to get your reaction about who this will affect and how. >> absolutely. thanks so much for having me, kim. yesterday's decision was a really sad day for daca recipients and those applying for daca. the judge's decision has the
most impact on individuals who are first time applicants for daca, so those are individuals who had qualified for the program during the three years it was on hold by former president trump, and who had submitted to apply and now the judge's order says that those cases cannot go forward and that's the biggest impact of the decision. litter the judge says he will lift a temporary period where individuals can daca can seek renewals. . is a crisis call moment and a call for congress to pass legalization for daca recipients and others. >> really underscores that need for congress to act. democrats have tried a couple of times, it's passed the house but hasn't gotten through the senate. they're trying to include it in the infrastructure bill and pass
it through reconciliation which would sidestep the filibuster but not clear the senate parliamentarian would allow it to go forward on that basis. how confident are you that it will pass that hurdle? >> you know, i am confident that this is what the senators need to do. i'm uplifted by the words of the president and the vice president this morning making clear they expect congress to use the reconciliation vehicle in order to pass legalization. that shows the president and the expect are saying this is a priority and we know we don't have time for anything else except to attach legalization to a reconciliation package and it needs to get done now. >> you deal intimately with the people involved. tell me more about what's at stake and how they feel about having their lives up-ended this
way. seems to me this yo-yo effect they're allowed, not allowed, allowed, not allowed, somebody had written in our articles it's a paid subscription, i keep subscribing to the united states, it keeps having to be renewed like this. what effect does it have on them? >> thank you so much for asking. this isn't just a court case, isn't just a program. these aren't numbers. these are members of our communities, and our friends and loved ones and you know, i got to speak to my plaintiff yesterday after the court's decision. many said i don't want another roller coaster. i don't want to live court case to court case. i am here. this is my home. i don't want to live in two-year increments. i don't have to worry will the next court overturn my ability to work here and live here without fear of deportation. that's what we all want, security and want to build our lives in a positive direction.
so enough with the funny business in courts. we need to have a real and permanent solution for our immigrant communities. >> and i think most polls support that idea, most people seem to support that idea. so there's the path through congress, there's also the judicial path here. the government has promised to appeal this, but if so, it's headed to the fifth circuit court of appeals, which i understand is fairly conservative and if it were to go forward, then of course the supreme court, 6-3 conservative majority and three of the justices there had previously called the program unlawful, so you know, do you have any faith that the courts will sort of come to its rescue? >> so what i would say about that is first of all, i give credit to the biden administration for making clear today that they will appeal the ruling from judge hainan yesterday. second this is just one judge. he is a district court judge.
i represent plaintiffs in a nationwide class in another case in brooklyn, new york, before another district court judge where we brought a challenge to president trump's effort to end the daca program. so we're a long way from having a clear decision in the courts on the legality of daca, but we don't need another court fight. we don't need to go through all of this, when as you said, kim, poll after poll shows us that americans, no matter what political persuasion they are, believe that we need legalization and permanent protection for immigrant young people under the daca program. so the senate needs to do what the house has done and get it done and provide a real solution for these young folks. >> we'll have to leave it there. thanks so much for joining us, karen tumlin, appreciate it. >> thanks, kim. texas is staking center stage in the fight over voting rights in the u.s.
the republican-led texas state senate pushed forward a stricter voting law. texas house democrat its fled the state to prevent a quorum in a final vote on the bill. monday the lawmakers flew to washington, d.c., where they met with key congressional democrats and urged them to pass federal voting rights legislation. governor abbott vows to do whatever it takes to win the showdown. >> i can and i will continue to call special session after special session after special session all the way up until election next year. >> abbott is threatening to arrest the democrats as soon as they return to texas though it's not clear he has that authority. ultimately texas democrats lack the votes to block the bill. the bill would rein in things like drive-through and 24-hour voting, further tighten the rules for voting by mail, bolster access for partisan poll
watchers. despite unlikely odds and widespread criticism from the other side of the aisle, texas democrats defend their decision to leave the state, say republicans left them with few other options. on the other hand the gop says the push for voting restrictions in the name of election security. >> we debated this proposal for a 24-hour period in committee and the committee is really where you to all the work, where you consider alternative language, where you consider and adopt amendments. republicans would not adopt a single amendment offered by democrats and so their mission was to pass it and pass it quick. their mission was to pass it over our objections. they weren't being pragmatic. >> we have to do our best to have those sorts of reliable elections. ten years since we've done an overhaul of our election laws

largest rally in decade as cross cuba. since then human rights watch says more than 400 people have been detained on the island, includes cubans who went missing as the government cracked down on the protesters. cuban officials are silent on how many many people are arrested but some detained protesters are being released. cnn hasn't independently confirmed that claim or the number detained. the government held its own political show of force. patrick oppmann has that. >> reporter: the cuban government on saturday staged a massive demonstration, the largest we have seen since the pandemic. it was billed a revolutionary reaffirmation, tens of thousands of government supporters took part in it and it seemed like it was a direct response to president joe biden's comments, criticisms of the cuban government calling cuba a failed state saying communism was not an ideology that worked and his
offer to restore the internet here after the cuban government took it down in large part following the massive anti government protest that we've seen in the last week. cuban president miguel diaz danell took part and former cuban leader raul castro, showing his continued support even though he retired. he said the world had been lied to, cuba enat the police had not beat up protesters but hundreds if not thousands of videos on social media paint a different picture and cnn has seen in our own coverage going out and covering these protests people, cubans being forcibly arrested for saying they want liberty or a change in government. patrick oppmann, cnn, havana. the afghan government resumed peace talks with the taliban on saturday in qatar.
both sides expressed hope for peace, even though fighting has escalated across afghanistan. negotiators are expected to talk again sunday. meanwhile officials in afghanistan say about 12,000 families in a northern province have fled heavy fighting and the u.n. estimates more than 2,000 people in kandahar have been displaced this month. sources tell cnn the taliban is accelerating ahead of the poolout of troops in september. bricking the world of art and fashion, the story how an american in par sis bringing a surreal style to the modern age. stay with us.

are you a christian author with a book that you're ready to share with the world? get published now, call for your free publisher kit today! the notion that fashion can be a form of art can be polarizing in some creative circles but a young american designer in paris is hoping to enlighten the debate with a surreal approach. >> my name is daniel rosebury, i'm from dallas, texas.
i'm the first or the only american working as a couturier. i've been in paris for two years as the director, at a storied house from the '20s and '30s and early '40s. eldis company caperelli was an american and here was in paris, her arch rival was coco chanel and in direct competition with each other. the first designer to foster relationships with the artists of her day, dali, giacometi. her foundation is rooted in art and surrealism. i think being an american gives me a different perspective, and i think there's always like this
push and pull where i feel rebelling against couture and all of this kind of classic frenchness behind it but also a total surrender. i'd never done couture before, i'm not classically trained. it required a lot of getting used to. >> ladies and gentlemen, here for the singing of our national anthem, please welcome lady gaga. >> dressing gaga for the inauguration was the honor of a lifetime in a way and i loved having her input, too, because originally what she wanted was something all white, a very neutral almost pure gesture, but once she saw the sketch, she actually suggested the red and the blue and that's what we did and it was so much stronger than white. the audience as i felt it at the beginning of the pandemic was not interested in seeing
