tv   New Day Weekend With Christi Paul and Boris Sanchez  CNN  July 31, 2021 3:00am-4:00am PDT

3:00 am
it's wireless so good, it keeps one upping itself. good morning and welcome to your "new day." i'm boris sanchez. >> good morning, boris. i'm christi paul. pivotal discovery. cdc recommending new macing guidance recommending people fully vaccinated wearing masks indoors. this is driven mostly by people who are not vaccinated. plus, saturday session. senators heading back to capitol hill to hammer out the text of the massive infrastructure bill. one of president biden's biggest infrastructure goals. >> we'll talk about that.
3:01 am
filing suit after scarlet johansson sued disney following the release of the marvel film "black widow" why she said the company breached her contract and how disney is responding. opting out. simone biles withdrawing from two more events at the tokyo olympics. hear her message to fans coming up . welcome to saturday. we're glad you're up early on july 31st. oh, my gosh, boris. how did we get to august already? >> yeah. time has flown by this year. christi, always great to be with you. good morning. good morning to our viewers at home. we're grateful you are with us. we start with this race to avoid a new wave of coronavirus infections from sweeping the
3:02 am
country. officials are sounding the alarm about the spread of the deadly delta variant. the rate of vaccinations against covid-19 is actually going up across the united states. >> so we have this map to put it into perspective for you. take a look here. it shows new cases compared to last week. you can see there every state is showing some sort of surge fueled by the delta variant. now the cdc said it can spread as easily as chick en pox but they stress getting vaccinated is your best defense. 80% live in a county considered to have high or substantial covid-19 transmissions. that's 270 million people according to updated guidance should be wearing masks regardless of vaccination. the staggering disparate between vaccinated and unvaccinated.
3:03 am
an average of nearly by p 90 million people were getting their first dose every day. that's the highest it has been in three weeks. states, local officials and even business owners and employers are making a full-court press to get more shots in arms. we start this morning in dekalb county, georgia. natasha chen joins us live. it's where many experts are encouraging people to roll up their sleeves by offering incentives, right, natasha? >> reporter: yeah, boris. they're giving out prepaid gift cards today in hopes more people will come to this spot at a mall and get the shot especially as school districts in this area sometimes a bit early to make up for lost instruction time during the pandemic.
3:04 am
in many places across the country, georgia is seeing a rising 7-day average new covid cases and that has a lot of people concerned. >> america's waking up to a new day of increased covid restrictions and president biden said we're likely to see more as cases of the highly contagious delta virus spreads. >> almost 1 million people got vaccinated yesterday. >> cdc data shows the rate of new vaccinations is the highest it's been in weeks. just under half the u.s. population is fully vaccinated. the u.s. is pulling in extra help to get it approved as quickly as possible to ease the minds of those worried about vaccine safety. this comes as we're learning more about the cdc and just how dangerous the delta variant really is.
3:05 am
the agency says 74% of covid casings in one massachusetts county came from fully vaccinated people. though it is important to note the cdc remained critical of the slow rate of vaccinations. respiratory droplets can carry the virus like the smoke of a cigarette. >> many medical experts say the risk of transmission outdoors is much higher than previously thought, all of this as students are heading back to class for what they hoped would be a normal school year. more than 100 students at one atlanta school that does require masks are being told to quarantine. only one staff member had been
3:06 am
vaccinated and the school's eighth grade class is back at home during virtual school. one parent said he's not surprised. >> we had the delta virus and the numbers start going up. i felt real uncomfortable with it. this ain't a good idea. it didn't make any sense with everybody not being vaccinated to go back to school. some parents are fighting hard to keep their children from having to mask up in class. >> i feel like it's our right to have a choice to either mask or unmask our children just like you have a choice to vaccinate. >> altogether eight u.s. states are taking steps to ban masking. cases more than doubled in one week. >> the covid pandemic is once get raging out of control.
3:07 am
>> reporter: medical experts said we are far from done from covid. >> the virus we're seeing today as bad as it is is not as bad as it can get. >> of course, one of the conversations being had right now with a lot of employers is whether to require vaccinations for employees before they come back in person and that discussion is even happening in schools and school districts as the school year is about to start in many places. boris and christi? >> yeah. we're going to be speaking to an official from the drew school. that's later this morning. natasha chen. thank you for the update. it's been nearly four weeks since joe biden said the drove no longer controls our lives. it's clear that we are far from where he hoped we would be at this point. >> yeah. with the delta variant ravaging so much of this country, the president has been forced to shift his tone and keep his main
3:08 am
focus on covid. >> let's go to cnn's kevin liptac. there's a mix of frustration and exhaustion from the white house. what are you learning about what's happening in the walls? >> reporter: this is a turning point in the pandemic for the president but it's not the turn he wanted to be taking at this point. in august rising cases forcing the president to take ever more action in combatting the virus including steps he had been reluctant to take like requiring federal workers to attest they had been vaccinated and going through these steps. telling the pentagon to mandate the vaccine for military service members. these are things the president had sought to avoid earlier on there. had been worries about the political backlash and pushing
3:09 am
people away from the vaccine by taking those steps. the president forced into them because of the delta variant. the president making clear to businesses, local schools are the ones deciding. he did make clear yesterday as he was leaving the white house for camp david further steps might be necessary. listen to what he had to say. >> mr. president, should americans expect more guidelines coming out about covid? >> in all probability. by the way, we had a good day yesterday. almost 1 million people got vaccinated. >> reporter: now what's driving all of this now? it comes down to a few things. one is that very worrying cdc data, we got the first glimpse of it yesterday. the president and other white house officials had seen it
3:10 am
earlier in the week saying vaccinated people carried as much viral load as unvaccinated people saying the delta variant was just as contagious as chichick en pox. the president is greatly frustrated. he feels like he's hit a brick wall. the white house advisers, the president advisers are sheered to see those vaccination rates ticking un. it's clear they have a lodge way to go in the fight. >> we appreciate it so much. thank you. let's talk about all of this with emergency medicine physician dr. anan someniton. so good to have you back. let's talk about the numbers that we're seeing and try to keep it in perspective. 125,000, as i understand it, breakthrough cases, that's out of 164 million people who are
3:11 am
vaccinated fully which equates to it. tell us about the efficacy of vaccines for people who are having concerns. >> vaccines are very effective especially against preventing severe disease, hospitalization and death. that's what they were designed to do. we knew there were going to be breakthroughs. we're talking a 25 fold reduction. that is absolutely incredible. they will protect you and keep you out of hospitals and keep them from dieing and that is the push here. a little bit of a sniffle, little bit of a kocough, not a g deal. >> then for people who have conditions like the efficacy of masks. >> they had a mask mandate. they have 100 students in
3:12 am
quarantine because of an outbreak there. talk to people about the necessity of masks and the effectiveness there. this would seem to counter that argument. there's some confusion there. >> just like vaccines, masks aren't perfect. it's about layered mitigation. there are things in place to help reduce. we know that masks are effective in reducing transmission. they are completely 100% safe and i think any student going back to school should be wearing a mask. k-12th grade, every single student should be wearing masks, that's the best way to protect. it is about layered are okay with it, it will markedly reduce
3:13 am
the chance of kids getting it. >> just a little over 50%. is it too late to hit herd immunity? >> we don't know. delta can infect people who are fully vaccinated. fully vaccinated people can have high viral loads that they can pass to others. it's hard to know whether herd immunity is going to be achievable. we have to push harder with vaccines. that's what delta is telling us, we need to particular a new takt with how we're going to get people there. they have to stand up. >> i asked people on twitter to send in their questions and please, i encourage you to keep doing so. we're talking to doctors all morning today, but i have a lot
3:14 am
of questions from people regarding the fact that school is starting. some in three days in some districts and they're concerned about their kids. are you can onfident that kids be safe? should they get the vaccine? >> this is going to really vary from community to community whether we can keep kids safe. if you live in a community where vaccination steps are high and the proper mitigation steps are being taken, yes. you can open schools and keep the cases safe. many kids are vaccinated and we're going to have 100% mask mandates in classes. those are the things we need to suggest. there is no doubt kids over 12 should have the vaccination. there's no doubt that will protect them and our communities. i'm hoping we can get it for
3:15 am
younger kids. i have two kids between 5 and 12 and i want them vaccinated too. we want to get the emergency use authorization. for the 12 and up, push hard to get as many of them vaccinated as we can. >> we saw earlier. there are several states who are having some real issues and concerns in hospitals right now. icu units that are really becoming full in florida, louisiana. >> where i work, our rates of sick covid patients are fairly low. nothing like what we saw last year. nothing like what we saw in the winter. that's because our vaccination rates are high. we're not strained. our hospital is operating at a pretty good pace and we're doing well. i have friends in other parts of
3:16 am
the country that are not seeing that. i had a friend who won't give them more hours. you can see how stressed hospitals are, how strained they are when you hear things about canceling elective surgeries. that's when hospitals are being hit hard. they are very reluctant to cancel those cases. when you see a case canceled as they're hitting many states, that's when you know the stress or strain on the hospital is so much they really can't take anymore. i think we're going to see that across mississippi, alabama, arkansas, missouri, texas if we're not already seeing it, it is coming. >> dr. anan somenitan, always good to get your perspective. thank you for being with us. >> thank you. it is a working weekend on

before discovering nexium 24hr to treat her frequent heartburn... claire could only imagine enjoying chocolate cake. now, she can have her cake and eat it too. nexium 24hr stops acid before it starts for all-day, all-night protection. can you imagine 24 hours without heartburn? senate majority leader chuck schumer says they're still working on the final text of the bill. daniella diaz here with us. talk to us about what's in the bill and what you're hearing cht
3:22 am
in this bill. $550 billion is new spending, 73 billion would rebuild the electrical grid. 66 billion in passenger and freight rail. there's a lot in this bill. i can go into more details but it's a lot of money that would fulfill a lot of priorities for this administration. the problem is chuck schumer says the language is not written yet. that's why they're working through the weekend. they will offer a finalized deal of a substitute amendment. look, he really laid it all out yesterday ahead of the vote to
3:23 am
proceed. take a listen to what he said. >> once they are finished the specific job, the text will be reviewed and then i will immediately offer the text as a bipartisan infrastructure agreement as a substitute agreement making it the base bill as i had promised. as soon as the bipartisan group finalizes the text of the substitute amendment and becomes the base bill, we can start voting on amendments in a bill over this weekend. >> reporter: the bottom line is the senate is racing to vote on the infrastructure package ahead of august recess when all senators are expected to go back to their home district for a few weeks. this is why they're working through the weekend and this is why we're here bringing everyone the latest. christi, boris. >> that recess might wind up getting delayed with the reconciliation bill on the horizon.
3:24 am
daniella diaz, thank you very much. this infrastructure bill is the result of bipartisan negotiations, something we don't see much of in washington these days. julian is joining us to discuss this. >> reporter: good morning. >> president biden campaigned on bipartisanship which many said wasn't possible. it took a bit longer than expected and this is on the verge of getting passed. how does getting this done alongside of republicans help the president moving forward? >> it's not going to change the basic partisan dynamics of washington but it's a big accomplishment. this is something he can sell both as an important policy measure that provides infrastructure funding for much-needed projects and, b, it fulfills the campaign promise
3:25 am
that he can govern, that he can achieve bipartisanship in this case but that he can achieve some sort of normal in washington that we haven't seen. i wouldn't bet there's going to be a lot of bipartisanship outside of this package. nonetheless, it would be a big turning point. >> yeah. so senator mitt romney is saying the text of the bill is 90% done. he's anticipating it could be finished as early as today. the senate then is supposed to go into a recess august 9th though senator bernie sanders, one of several senators saying they expect the reconciliation budget resolution may find its way to the floor of the senate that week. what are you going to be watching for during this process as congress attempts to pass these two pieces of legislation? >> well, the reconciliation doesn't require republican support so what you're looking for is do senators manchin and sinema, what are they saying? democrats real will he want the
3:26 am
rest of the items to pass as well. that was the deal and so it's those two senators who have so much power right now on capitol hill. that's who you keep an eye for. will they go along with the party or will they become the source of obstruction? >> i want to ask you specifically about senator from arizona, christyn cisin ema. some of them have drawn the ire of people in her own party. how does the white house successfully balance these two wings of the democratic party? here are some of the tweets for our viewers. >> basically it's carrots and sticks. i do think there is a role for president biden to keep reaching out to her to try to persuade her, as he has done with republicans on the infrastructure bill to go along with the party, but there's also
3:27 am
pressure that can be mounted in the states against her in her home state. and i think it's a combination of the two that gets people to move. that's what happened with republicans on infrastructure. it wasn't simply that senator mcconnell played nice. it's the realization if he didn't go along, democrats might have gotten more with reconciliation. >> i want to ask you about the white house and covid. first, listen to this message from president biden given to a maskless crowd. >> over the past year we've lived through some of our darkest days. now i truly believe i give my word as a biden, we're about to see our brightest future. >> this week we saw a sharp turn. the cdc saying vaccinated americans should wear masks in high transmission areas.
3:28 am
some of the president's highest approval ratings have been on his handling of the pandemic. how does he keep the public on his side even as we're forced to restaen some of the protocols we shed a few weeks pack? >> it's difficult. it's demoralizing for many americans, but the president is now aware that volunteerism will not work in large parts of the pu public. so moving to a much more proactive stance as we have done with vaccines, other kinds of vaccines in public schools. the way he re-establishes support and enthusiasm from the electorate is to take the steps necessary with vaccines and masks to curb this delta moment. this does not have to be the future and i think that's why the administration is being so proactive to try to change the trajectory of the virus. >> and we'll keep watching to see what else the white house may do in order to counter act the rise in delta variant cases.
3:29 am
julian, we have to leave the conversation there. always great to see you, sir. >> thank you. >> thanks. so let's talk about "black widow." star scarlet johansson is suing disney. why she's accusing them of a breach of contract. where might this go? joey jackson with us next. lift and push and push! there... it's up there. hey joshie... wrinkles send the wrong message. help prevent them with downy wrinkleguard. feel the difference with downy. with voltaren arthritis pain gel my husband's got his moves back. an alternative to pain pills voltaren is the first full prescription strength gel for powerful arthritis pain relief... voltaren the joy of movement

good morning to you. 33 minutes past the hour. let's talk about today's legal brief. one of marvel's biggest stars is suing disney. actor scarlet johansson of course. she said disney breached their contract when they released "black widow" streaming and in the movies. it's distressing in its callous
3:34 am
disregard for the covid-19 pandemic. cnn legal analyst joey jackson with us now. joey, so good to have you here. thank you. so talk to me, first of all, about -- regarding what we know based on this suit of hers. how strong is it? >> reporter: yeah, christi. good morning to you. the devil is always in the details. what i mean by that is suits can't be predicated on hey, i love disney, they should prevail. scarlet joe hanssonjohansson, m actor, she should prevail. we bargain every day. do you get the benefit of your bargain? i think in this particular case it's a matter of assessing a contract and seeing what the parties contemplated. was it contemplated that it would only be a theatrical release? that would be in movie theaters. i would hasten to add it was
3:35 am
supposed to be in may of 2020. you might recall the pandemic fell sometime in march of last year. the reason i bring that up is because that goes to the issue of what they've contemplated at that time. certainly things look different now that we have technology with respect to streaming services and other things. what does the contract say? did it limit it there, the event that it was to go on the disney+ platform which should be compensated? what was the form and basis of that compensation? i think all of those things will be noted and final point in these instances often they settle. if you made $20 million, that's what disney is saying, we should note disney has -- we're talking about marvel and marvel made $318 billion over the course of the last 13 years so we're talking about big dollar figures here. >> no doubt. so i want to move on here to
3:36 am
another entertainment story with some potential legal ramifications. we're talking about amanda knox. she is accusing the new matt damon film, "stillwater" of profiting from her wrongful murder conviction. knox says this used her story at the expense of her reputation and it was only used as an inspiration. does the inspir rags afford her the ability for funds? >> no. >> she's very distressed and she should be. twice convicted and ultimately exonerated. we're talking about the 2007
3:37 am
murder of her roommate in italy and the fight that ensued. amazing that it's been all these years later. she should speak up and speak out about anything that she feels might hold her in a light that is not the light she should be held in. she was acquitted, right? as a result of that, she's gone on to do great things in her life in public speaking, being a spokesperson, et cetera. so but when you get to the issue of a lawsuit, it's a little harder. we're talking about first amendment issues, the realm of ideas and the realm of expression and even in some instances when someone does a biography. we know "stillwater" is loosely based on and if someone does a story about you as a public figure, you have limited recourse. if that's based on court documents, newspaper reports and everything else. whenever you get into the realm of ideas, certainly the problem as it relates to compensation for what you believe to be the
3:38 am
profiting off of your image and your likeness. >> let me ask you this. she did tweet out when i was acquitted and freed the media and public would not allow me to become a private citizen again. she's saying, look, this movie is damaging her reputation. what about potential for a defamation lawsuit? is there any space for that? >> no, you know, wonderful question but then the issue becomes, look, when you look at defamation you're talking about saying something that is false about someone and is injurious to their reputation and causes damage to their life. you're talking about a movie that is not based on you particularly but is inspired from you. then certainly it will hold you in ill refute. we're talking about fiction at the end of the day. "stillwater" is predicated on something in france. that is a lot different,
3:39 am
christi, than if it targeted her, spoke about her or otherwise defamed her. our courts are open all the time. people litigate, they have different points of view but we hold our health to high standards. in this standard it would be a very uphill battle for her to fight. >> joey jackson, it is so good to see you on this saturday morning. thank you for making time for us. >> always. thanks, christi. >> thank you, joey. so gymnast simone biles says, listen, she is still battling the twist yis. now she's officially withdrawn from the next competition and continuing to focus on her mental health. we have the latest for you from tokyo. stick with us. be sure to join cnn this august for once in a lifetime concert event. we love new york city, the homecoming concert. it airs saturday, august 21st exclusively right here on cnn. ds that just don't smell clean? what if your clothes could stay fresh for weeks?
