and a crusade with the holy city. the fall of one kingdom. the rise of another. but only one can control the city of god. three major faiths. six epic battles. the most coveted city in the world. jerusalem, city of faith and fury. all new episode sunday at 10:00 p.m. on cnn. welcome to our viewers joining us in the united states and around the world. i'm isa soares in london.
ahead on "cnn news room." it's not going to be good. we're going in a wrong direction. >> vaccine hesitancies fuelling the surge in cases and hospitalizations across the united states. making it even more urgent to get more americans to get the shot. a changing mood in japan. the olympics spark optimism despite months of coronavirus restrictions. we're live in tokyo for you this hour with the latest details. and china plays the blame game during a diplomatic visit by a top u.s . diplomat. happy monday. now the united states seeing a sharp rise in new infections. the delta variant spreads and vaccination rates fall. less than half of americans are fully vaccinated.
in the reach herd immunity. it's at least 70% of the population need vaccines. the majority of u.s. -- more than 50% new incovid infections last week. in a sea of dark red. top health expert dr. fauci said the most pressing need now is to get shots in arms. take a listen. >> look historically at the model that has been done over the last 18 months, for the most part, it's been pretty accurate. i'm not sure it would be the worst-case scenario but it's not going to be good. we're going in the wrong direction. since we have 50% of the country is not fully vaccinated, that's a problem. particularly when you have a variant like delta which has this extraordinary characteristic of being able to spread very efficiently and very easily from person to person and
we know we have many, many, many vulnerable people in this country who are unvaccinated. >> experts are also warning if cases continue to rise, restrictions will likely make a comeback. >> mitigation is coming. whether it's masking or whether it's closures or whether it's your kids having to return to virtual learning. that's coming. it's coming because this pandemic is spiraling out of control yet again. >> the masks can be helpful against the new variant. the physical characteristics of this virus has not changed. the reason it's more transmisble, there's more of it. when people get infected, they get more virus. higher viral level and expseudomore virus so they're more contagious. >> getting vaccinated is equivalent to carrying a umbrella. it keeps you mostly dry. it also means in a bad storm, you wear a rain jacket.
>> some major u.s. cities are starting to take that advice. starting today masks are mandatory in all indoor public areas for anyone over the age of 5. the city's health department said the measure is needed because not enough people have yet to be vaccinated. st. louis is following in the footsteps of los angeles. it made masks mandatory again a little over a week ago. los angeles officials hope we'll see if it'll help revert the surge in hospitalizations there. cnn's paul bver cam men has mor. >> reporter: we'll get to the last numbers. that's because over the weekend, sometimes you'll have a lag. we did see a number of new cases drop. the hospitalizations jumped above 700 in l.a. county. hospitalizations for covid-19. and that is absolutely alarming. and so county health officials
are saying that people need to wear their masks indoors and get vaccinated. the result of these hospitalizations is we're seeing eight county hospitals such as this, county usc is seeing more patients. they would have one or two patients in june and now they're seeing 10 to 15 for covid-19. so what is driving this? >> as of right now, this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. it's extraordinarily important. people who are vaccinated now seem to have high level of protection. the people we've seen, the numbers increasing are among people who have not gotten the vaccine. we can't say it's the old people going to die. it's young people now who are coming in they're sick. >> so the doctor saying the new wave of patients is younger and many of them had excuses such as i just didn't have time to get a shot. he's urging people who only had
one shot in los angeles county to get that second shot and that's because they are vulnerable to a breakthrough case of the delta variant if they haven't had both of required shots. back to you. >> thank you very much, paul. in southern u.s. new covid cases and hospitalizations are climbing in alabama. according to the cdc, the state the had fewest number of fully vaccinated people in the country at 34%. the situation in florida is also troubling. you can see that coronavirus cases are rising at an alarming rate and hospitals are filling up, once again, except now patients are younger than before. arkansas is also facing an uptick in covid-19 cases. it has a third lowest vaccination rate in the country. listen as one arkansas doctor explains the difficulty of treating extremely ill covid patients and why he wants more people to get vaccinated. >> i definitely represent
thousands of very tired health care workers. i literal little just came from a patient's room in his 20s and it took six people to get him in a prone position on the ventilator and we are seeing 20 and 30-year-olds dying now from a preventable illness. it's heartbreaking. we're seeing, you know, you can't be too healthy for this virus. we're seeing people that cross fit on tuesday and on a vend la later -- ventilator on friday. i see someone daily for the last three weeks that is possibly dying, certainly very sick, that asks if they can get their vaccine. it is heartbreaking to tell them that time has passed. that was five to six weeks ago to prevent this.
>> well, elsewhere around the world, cases are surging in some regions while restrictions ease in others. south africa's president said progress has been made in fighting a third wave of infections and the country will start rolling back restrictions. such a different story in indonesia. record daily death tolls on three consecutive days last week. some restrictions have been extended for another week. in brazil covid is still running rampant. protesters are demanding the impeachment of president bols ar -- bolsonaro. they are requiring a health pass into bars and restaurants. > take a listen. >> i want to send out a strong message to remind everyone to
get vaccinated because it's proven everywhere in the figures all over the world. where you're vaccinated, you're protected. above all, you no longer get sick or hardly ever. in the few cases where you get sick, you no longer get the serious forms that end up here. >> reporter: in the uk considering requiring proof of full vaccination for events with more than 20,000 people. cnn's reporter joining us with the latest. selma, how controversial do you expect this to be? >> it's already causing some controversies. prime minister boris johnson facing some opposition from his own party. speaking out against this in some ways concerned that the authorities are taking too many civil liberties by imposing these new rules. if they impose these new rules. what are they looking at? in the planning stages of potentially requiring some vaccine passport. proof of immunization, if you be into a stadium with 20,000 people or more. the first place where it could
be rolled out is during football matches. english remere league. games that can happen in a few weeks time. it is a continuation of a policy we've already seen here. the authorities had announced a few weeks ago that starting in accept, if you want to get into a nightclub, you have to show proof of vaccination. why take the next step? there's a few reasons. first, you discuss the beginning of your show the rise of the delta variant. that's concerning to authorities here. the uk lifted restrictions as infection rates were rising. so this is one way the authorities are saying you can begin to resume normal life. you can begin to go back to the social events you love, but at the same time we have to be weary of the variant. the second reason is that the uk is by and large following the example of other european countries here. france and italy just a few days ago announce there will be a form of vaccine passports required under even stricter rules. you have to show some form of immunization to be into a
restaurant or bar in italy or france starting next month. and, finally, of course, while the authorities have not admitted to this, it increases vaccination. you can only imagine if you are limited to what you can access. if your civil liberties are limited, you might get the job. that's why they're pushing. it could be step one of what could be an even more expanded program in the future. >> yeah. and why we saw the numbers of vaccinations, didn't we, rise in france following that announcement. selma, thank you very much. ♪ ♪ now a lot happening at the to be owe olympics today. summer games are off despite the pandemic. and with a tropical storm on the horizon. it's heating up. this is where the medal count stands at the moment. the united states has the most gold medals with seven.
14 medals in total. china has more overall medals at 15. expect it to change quickly with 21 medal events in the hours ahead. meanwhile covid cases are rising in japan. officials just announced dutch tennis player tested positive for covid-19 forcing him and his doubles partner to withdraw from the game. despite this, organizers are adjusting the mask policy allowing athletes to take the masks off. japan is also bracing for a tropical storm. it's expected to bring rain as well as strong winds this week. we'll get more on this patrick snell in atlanta. blake essig joining us live in tokyo. it's been a historic achievement in the skateboarding, patrick. >> yeah. it's just incredible! wow. it's day three of competition. official competition. another day to savor for japan. once again the current leaders in the skateboarding making the
debut at the games. in the women's competition, in fact, it's incredible. all three competitors on the podium are teenagers! at 13 one of the youngest gold medal winners in olympics history. and brazil is winning silver medal. her age is 13, a s well! and the men's competition is rounding out a super couple of days. >> fantastic to see. i mean, it makes me feel like an underachiever. i've said it before. we are seeing incredible story lines and plenty to talk about this morning when i woke up.
in the aquatics center one british competitor. >> it's great story lines all the way! we had many of them over the weekend carrying on into monday. adam peaty winning gold in the men's 100 meter. the 26-year-old from england not just the defending champ, either, by the way but the world record holder in the event. his time? 57 seconds! peaty's third career olympic medal overall. why is it so special for the brit? peaty now the first british swimmer to successfully defend an olympic title. you can see the full range of emotions he's going through there. a special moment there for adam peaty. all right. let me set the scene. this is a big one ahead of this
one. u.s. swimming sensation katie w led ledecky looking to add to her triumph in rio. the world record holder up against a formidable rival wit h australia's -- that's the fourth fastest time win ever. and before we go, i want to check it out. it's an incredible story. norway celebrating a gold medal in the men's triathlon. only after a bizarre false start. look at the video. confusion abounding. about half the competitors there
actually diving in the water to try to start their swim thinking they were underway. a boat, yes, you can see it there a boat is still blocking many of them on the platform. surreal scenes there. we did eventually get a win. you can see the emotion of blummenfelt. a powerful late surge for him to seal it. norway's first gold medal of the games. there's nothing like the emotion of the olympics. >> yeah. surely someone saw it like we've got this in the way. stay with us. i want to go to blake essig in tokyo. you heard some great story lines out of the olympics. unfortunately covid cases continue to rise. give me a sense of the mood and how it's being handled.
>> reporter: well, yeah, health and safety remains a big concern with infection rates in tokyo surging and olympic-related cases continuing to pile up. but despite all of that, since competition began last week, it seems like the made for tv event is generating a lot of interest. ioc officials said nearly 70 million people watched the opening ceremony in japan. the broadcast services said it was the most-watched event in japan over the past decade. so far 80% of japan's roughly 126 million people have tuned in to watch the games at some point. and even though the buzz and excitement is a far cry from with a you expect from the city hosting the olympics. people are trying to experience the games. people lined the course to cheer on the try athletes. they weren't supposed to be there but it didn't stop a large crowd from gathering. and even though people were
there to cheer on the athletes, the vast majority of events are being held without fans and the build up to the games, we heard from athletes talking about potential performance anxiety as a result of no fans in the stands. we heard from some athletes who said the experience has been strange but app five-time olympian u.s. water polo player told me for those who have a shot to medal, they're going to be dialled in and often block out the crowd noise anyway. he said that for those folks, they'll treat a final just like any other day of practice. isa? >> blake essig in tokyo and patrick snell in atlanta. thank you. i'll try skateboarding later on today. thank you very much. now a special committee will begin the investigation on the attack on the u.s. capitol and republicans aren't happy about their colleagues who will serve on the panel bringing the latest on the partisan battle. just ahead. and it is a crucial moment for president joe biden's

a special u.s. house committee investigating the january 6th attack on the capitol will hold the first hearing on tuesday. and partisan lines are clearly being drawn. two republicans are on the committee, adam kinzinger serving along with liz cheney. now there are growing calls within the gop to have kinzinger and cheney removed from the other committees in retribution. we'll have more on what is ahead. >> reporter: get ready for an emotional day on capitol hill. on tuesday that is when the january 6th select committee is scheduled to hold its first hearing featuring the testimony of police officers who responded to the capitol attack that day. several of the officers were beaten, maced, dragged out. one crushed in between doorways.
we're expecting it to be powerful and emotional. we're expecting video clips and body worn camera footage to be played. one other thing to look out for is the presence of two republicans on the select committee who are both appointed by nancy pelosi. liz cheney was already on the initial roster of the committee but after kevin mccarthy, the fwop leader pulled his picks from the panel, nancy pelosi announced on sunday she would be appointing adam kinzinger to the committee, as well. republicans are saying it's another example how nancy pelosi is trying to structure the committee around her own political interests, but nancy pelosi making clear she's not worried about what republicans have to say. take a listen to what she had to say on abc this week. >> the republicans will say what they say. our select committee will seek the truth. it's our patriotic duty to do so. we do not come into our work worried about what the other side, who has been afraid of us, maybe the republicans can't handle the truth.
but we have a a responsibility to seek it, find it, and in a way that retains the confidence of the american people. >> reporter: that's ab early review of the battles to come. here on capitol hill as the select committee heats up in the coming weeks and months ahead. u.s. house democrat won't chair the select committee investigating the capitol attack with a partisan division over what happened that day. thompson is not ruling out calling trump administration initial -- officials or even donald trump himself to testify. >> nothing is off limits. we'll follow the facts. with the members of this committee we have all said whatever the facts and our investigation lead us, that's where we'll go. so nothing is sacred. but, again, this is our democracy at stake. >> senators will soon be back at
the negotiating table in the hopes of hashing out a bipartisan deal on infrastructure. several sources tell cnn talks over the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill are in precarious spot with major issues to resolve. senators on both sides of the aisle are expressing hope an agreement could be imminent. >> about 90% of the bay there. i'm here this weekend working on legislative language with colleagues and staff. i feel good about getting it done this week. we're down to the last couple of items. i think you'll see a bill monday afternoon. >> infrastructure isn't the only thing on president biden's agenda this week. ahead, a key u.s. diplomat is in china. it means soaring tensions between the two countries. the warning china had for the united states. coming up. plus a white house summit could mean changes for the u.s. military in iraq. what to expect from the iraqi prime minister's visit to washington.

now a top chinese diplomat is blaming the u.s. for the country's strained relationship. just a couple of days after china's foreign minister stopped boosting the superiority. it comes as america's number two diplomat is in china for a two-day visit. for more on this we go to our reporter in hong kong. you've got the second top level meeting between the two countries since president joe biden took office. what are the expectations here? >> reporter: well, the expectations are pretty low, but the stakes are high. this high-level meeting takes
place now. ahead of the meeting, u.s. officials said that wendy sherman, the deputy u.s. secretary of state would be seeking guardrails from china in order to better manage competition with china and also to avoid conflicts but said she's been getting an earful from chinese officials including the foreign minister who in the days leading up to today's meet has been speaking through chinese state-run media. she's been getting an earful from his deputy, the vice foreign minister of china, who this day has been issuing a series of strongly worded statements rebuking the united states, including this one. let's bring it up for you. in the statement he's basically blaming the u.s. for the current stalemate in the relationship saying the china/u.s. relationship is a stalemate and faces serious difficulties. it's because some americans portray china as an enemy. he goes on to say we urge the united states to change its highly misguided mind set and
dangerous quality. the meeting today comes in the backdrop of deepening tensions between u.s. and china. since then both sides have been trading near constant diplomatic barbs and tit for tat sanctions. recently the u.s. launching sanctions against the chinese officials here in hong kong. in response, china slapping sanctions on american entities and officials last friday incoming the former u.s. commerce secretary. given the current climate, a number of analysts said it's not likely that any significant outcomes will come under today's meeting. listen to willie lam. >> given the fact that both sides have so many things,
including -- sanctions and south china sea, taiwan, and hong kong. >> reporter: if talks go well, they could set the stage for potential biden/xi summit that can possibly take place on the sidelines of the g 20 in italy in october. >> thank you very much. now a top u.s. general is vowing that american forces will continue air strikes in afghanistan to back afghan fo forces battling that taliban. that assurance coming about one month until nearly u.s. forces are expected to be out of the country. >> i believe the singular advantage the government of afghanistan has now in the fight they're in is their air force. so we'll do everything in our power to keep that air force effective, flying, and in support of their forces. we spent a lot of time training
them. now is their moment. it's time for the stern test i noted earlier. i think they have the resources and capability to actually conduct that fight and win it. >> u.s. president joe biden will meet with iraqi prime minister at the white house today. the summit will focus on economic developments, security, and mission changes for u.s. troops in iraq. the leaders are expected to announce a shift to an advisory role. u.s. forces focus on advising and sustaining the iraqi military. arkansa arwa damon joining us now. what does it mean for the troops on the ground and particularly for iraq? >> reporter: it's strictly 11 manics. instead of focussing on combatting isis and other terrorism maneuvers, the
soldiers remaining in iraq will effectively be rebranded as advisory and assist troops versus combat forces. the iraqi prime minister said iraq doesn't need u.s. combat forces, but this progression forward, the fact there will be american boot woos on the ground will come as a big relief to members within the iraqi government and the iraqi population who are greatly concerned about not just the potential resurgence of isis but perhaps more at the forefront at this stage iran's growing influence. now the politicians, the militias that are armed and backed by iran, they may not look upon this so favorably. you'll remember in recent months there's been an increase in indirect fire attacks against u.s. forces. this beings said, the iraqi
government has been under pressure to demand all u.s. troops leave iraq. these are demands that became extremely vocal following the assassination of iran's top general under the trump administration at the beginning of 2020. so since then the iraqi government has been walking something of a tight rope trying to apiece the voices who have been demanding for a full, complete, and immediate u.s. troop withdrawal. on the other hand, recognizing the iraqi security forces continue to need american support. because this is not just about havin having, you know, advise and assist forces on the ground. they bring with them a significant number of intention and capabilities. >> thank you very much, arwa. now to the political turmoil in tunisia. the president has dismissed the prime minister in a move that sparked cheers in the capitol.
[ cheers and applause ] >> large crowds turned out in support of the president's announcement. his opponents accused him of launching a coupe. ben wiedeman is following the developments. he's standing by in beirut with the latest. i'm looking at the footage we saw from the last few minutes. live images. still large crowds. why they protesting? what is at the heart of this? >> well, basically what is happened is the president seems to be putting democracy on hold for the moment and therefore not everybody is happy about it. even though many people support this move because tunisia is in bad shape. the economy last year slunk between 7 and 9% because of covid. unemployment is at 16%. youth unemployment is at 36%. at the moment, there's a
standoff between supporters of the president and supporters of the other party, which is the largest political block in the now suspended tunisian parliament. overnight the veteran leader of the party went to the gates of the tunisian parliament, which have been locked, and he has accused the president of pulling off an attempted coupe. we know four of the largest political blocks in the parliament have come out in opposition to this move by the president. really this reflects this rather awkward arrangement where by executive power, according to the 2014 constitution for tunisia is shared between the president, the prime minister,
and parliament. frankly, it's such a mess that the country has been in a state of paralysis now for many months. 11 of the proposed ministers for the government have not been approved by the president at this point. so what you are seeing is just general frustration with politics and the covid pandemic. one of the worst in africa per capita. and the general economic stagnation that is gripping this country, which was held up as the only success story from the arab spring. it may be it's going the other way from the failed state of the arab spring. >> keep us on top of the developing story for us in tunisia. thank you very much. good to see you. now jordan's king is calling
his half brother's role in the alleged plot. you may recall the jordanian officials accused him of being part of a plot to destabilize the kingdom. they denied the allegation. he said he was isolated over concerns about alleged criticism of the government or the king. days later he pledged loyalty to the king. here is what the king now tells fareed fareed zakaria. >> in making their lives better to really push on their own agendas an ambitious. my brother did in an -- in a
really disappointing way. from our point of services as they always do gather information. it got to a point where they had legitimate concerns. that certain individuals were trying to push my brother's ambitions for their own agenda and decided to nip it in the bud and quietly. >> early this month, a top advisor to the king and a member to the royal family was sentenced to 15 years in prison. coming up right here, more fires are ripping through parts of the western united states. we'll hear if weather conditions are finally going to be on the firefighters' side. we'll brick you the story after a short break. i don't just play someone brainy on tv - i'm an actual neuroscientist. and i love the science behind neuriva plus. unlike ordinary memory supplements, neuriva plus fuels six key indicators of brain performance. more brain performance? yes, please! neuriva. think bigger.
